I think this is my favorite book of the series so far Yes, the world is extremely complicated so there s still a lot of explaining going on, but I like how complicated it is If something is too easy to figure out, it gets boring real quick You hear that hipsters We get you now, you can stop This should help..So in this book we have Cullen and Cynna traveling to a different dimension to retrieve a magical artifact for some elves Along with their not a demon friend who loves swimming, they also encounter the couple from the half book who seemed really random, but I had a feeling would be really important later Turns out, I was right I usually am If only my smartass children would remember that I ll just never understand where all of their snark and sarcasm comes from Must be from their father.Typical homeschool answer from them That was a long 12 yearsBut, funny Really funnyDuring this adventure we also have Cynna trying to come to terms with the fact that she is pregnant At first she compares the baby to a parasite, a helpful parasite, so that s not so bad She starts to care about her little parasite as the book goes on And, really, who doesn t love a good parasite Alright, not ALL parasitesThere was tons of action in this book, a tiny bit of romance, and the descriptions of the new realm they visited were great I never felt bored, and even when there were info dumps I felt interested in learning about the subject It was a really big step up from the last book. I think this is my favorite so far.
While we get some time with Lily and Rule, this is Cynnia and Cullen s book At the end of the book, my dislike for Cynnia had turned into genuine like and my reaction to Cullen went from who s a good boy, my little sullen wolfie will be a good boyto I want him for myself Drool Sigh.At first they had looked incompatible to me, the author trying to fix them up just to get rid of the third wheel feely or for plot conveniences But they fit It is a different yet even engaging fit than Lily and Rule s.Writing was better than the book before, none of that dizzying and boring stage settings It was fast paced and interesting Some of the characters travel to another realm and go on a quest to find a magical artefact I really liked Gan s place in the story She is literally the demon child from hell who is learning the consequences of souls But I guess, that s true for most of the children. 3.5 Stars SPOILERS FOR THE PREVIOUS BOOKS Boy, was I relieved to see the pacing improve in this book The last one had me a little nervous about a new writing trend, but it was back to normal here We didn t suffer from constant pov shifts, although there were some that didn t overwhelm the story I m still not as interested in Cullen and Cynna as I was in Lily and Rule The actual overreaching story arc still hooked me, but I didn t really work up much enthusiasm for the actual relationship potential between Cullen and Cynna I guess it was a good thing that I wasn t anticipating much there because this one only had a light touch of romance I really liked how the author handled Cynna s reaction to her new circumstances Just like with Lily s reaction to the mate thing, Cynna was not overjoyed by her pregnancy I liked that she had trouble coming to terms with it I can t imagine many women would jump for joy in a situation like that so I m glad that stayed realistic.I felt bad for Cynna and Cullen both Him for waiting so long for this and her for being stuck in a situation she didn t desire and tried to plan against I loved getting to see a whole new world I really like how the author keeps expanding and tweaking the world so it stays fresh and interesting It was pretty cool seeing how past characters became important in an unexpected way in this story I m curious to see how that all develops in the future SPOILERS I think the biggest lack besides occasional slow pacing was the development of Cynna and Cullen s relationship It didn t fail in the actual delivery I actually thought Cullen s slow wooing of Cynna was sweet it failed in the reason Why is Cynna different The Lupi are not monogamous They do not marry To break these social norms I expect a pretty convincing reason With Rule monogamy came because he was blessed with a Chosen or mate Even then his monogamy was still a source of concern for Lily Just because you re stuck being faithful doesn t mean you want to be faithful But the author slowly built up their relationship and convinced me that it was something that made them both happy That wasn t the case with Cynna and Cullen I don t see why it was different with her Even the love thing didn t really make a difference for me I sincerely doubt that in all of history none of the Lupi have fallen in love Odds are that they have, but I didn t hear anything about them deciding they had to be monogamous as well I m not complaining about the monogamy because I insist on it but I am complaining about the lack of explanation for it Cullen has bucked and entire race s culture That s an incredibly huge thing and I want to know why I just wish the book had delivered it. Cynna is a Finder, and a damn good one, able to find almost everything over a vast range It s a power that is high in desire including by the Gnomish rulers of Edge, another realm that is now accessible after the magic flares.The Realm is in danger but the ambassadors from Edge are certainly not to be trusted and may have their own agenda.On top of this, Cynna has to deal with her feelings on another matter she s pregnant, and the father is a sorcerer who is essential to their plan for Edge.What I think is bothering me a little about this series is how out there we have suddenly been thrown When the first book, Tempting Danger, in this series came along, we had Lily in San Diego, working with supernatural within the world, adapting, learning, revealing the world Then in book 2, Mortal Danger, Lily is suddenly in a Hell dimension surrounded by demons and she s split in 2 and it s all kind of abruptly very new Then book 3, Blood Lines we switched to Cynna and we re up to our eyebrows in demons and alternate dimensions and magic waves and the whole world now under threat.And now we re travelling to Edge, a different dimension that resembled a high fantasy than anything And I kind of want to go back to Tempting Danger.It s not that I don t like this direction of the books but I need time I needed, maybe, 2 or 3 books between Tempting Danger before we reached Mortal Danger so I could spend some time getting to know Lily and werewolves and magic and Cynna get to know the world before the whole world is dumped into a blender and mixed up so completely I feel lost, I feel adrift I needed of a foundation before I was dragged off into these different world and fae and gnomes and magic and Ahk and whole new political systems It s not that this story was bad, by any stretch of the imagination but I don t know this world well enough to be read to have this many wrenches thrown into the works and I m too adrift to keep running with it I don t know Cynna well enough for this I don t know the world, the magic, the entitles enough for this Let me catch up Ok, the story ok I was never actually bored reading it, I never wanted to stop and I never found it dull but it s a really basic quest story Cynna, with her magic finding power, has to find the McGuffin yes, I m calling it that because it really is irrelevant what it is which everyone else wants as well So they head off Occasionally they re attacked, occasionally they batter from one person seeking McGuffin to the next, but it s not really meaningful to our actual characters.It s not badly written, it s not boring, it s not poorly paced, but nor was it especially exciting with any real twists or deviations and the world it s revealing through this is Edge which is a different realm entirely so I m not even that invested in the world building The B plot is Cynna and Cullen s love which, is nice and non problematic but also not especially complex or conflict laden which isn t a problem a non conflict laden romance is excellent and doesn t balance the very linear A plot.Particularly since we follow Cynna And I want to like Cynna, I really want to like her She has a lot of interesting elements she has a power that is not overblown but also useful She s capable, she s intelligent She has a complex background with a lot of class issues She has her own non conforming style, she s still finding her feet but she is learning and growing, recognising her mistakes and trying to overcome.But she rides this whole book with little agency From the very minor Lily rebuilding her wardrobe according to her bank balance and taste and yes it s well meaning and yes Lily is considered fashionably able but still it s another choice Cynna isn t making , through to the fact that everyone in Edge values her because of her super special abilities there s very little of her own personality there she s a walking avatar of her power She s coerced from the very beginning kidnap after kidnap and there s never really a break away from that And she s not even really angry about that which is especially wrong for a character who is repeatedly described as trapped and lashing out violently to burn off steam she doesn t seem especially angry about some of this coercion None of the cast does they don t even demand any real sense of reparation There s one point where everyone is kind of concerned about one of the characters, Tash, a kidnapper and I just gape at the screen why do they all care Why are they invested in whether this character survives or is chopped into sushi Read More 3.5 5 4 stars B Night Season takes this series on a bit of a detour to another realm I enjoyed the adventure and the different kinds of creatures but wasnt 100% sure of how the medallion and quest really fit in with Lily and Rule and the Lupi story arc It was fun to see Gan find a purpose though besides hunting fishies. As I said for the perivous book each one adds to the world building Here we meet the Edge a strange world that I percieved as a world where all others intersect I am very curious to know when we will discover about Kai and Nathan s role in the whole story and when they will reappear I love Gan and her fishies too She s such a great character It s interesting to me that so many people liked this book a little less than the first three, because it features Cynna and Cullen instead of Lily and Rule I think that s actually why I liked it It s not that I dislike the original lead characters it s just that their romance was a bit lacking at least for me They re mates They really have no choice but to be together It s different with Cynna and Cullen There is no physical imperative for them to be a couple Their relationship isn t a given, it s a journey And what a ride it is.As the story begins, Cynna is still struggling to accept the fact that she is pregnant It wasn t anything she planned or thought that she wanted But the fact is, it s real, and in her heart, there is no other option but to have the baby Her turmoil over it quickly takes a backseat, however, when a group of beings show up from another realm, seeking her Finding skills The details are murky, but when the chips fall, she is in their home dimension with Cullen and a handful of others, seeking the mysterious medallion.If you read Inhuman, you ll be familiar with Kai and Nathan She s a human telepath on a mission from the Winter Queen He is the hellhound in human form, who loves her Here, Kai s mission overlaps with our group from Earth, but it s not clear how right away I really enjoyed Kai and Nathan s short story, so I liked seeing them again here and learning what became of them But to those who skipped their short, these two may feel disjointed to the main story.Most of the book is in Cynna s POV, which I liked She has some real issues and vulnerability, thanks to her difficult childhood And I enjoyed watching Cullen work to break down her walls I really appreciated his earnestness, especially since he has always been so mercurial before now The world has changed for both of them so completely, the evolution of their relationship really works to ground them.Outside of the romance, there is a great adventure Since we leave earth, this installment feels a bit high fantasy than urban fantasy in some ways The worldbuilding is solid, but what s cool is that it s built in seamlessly than in other books of the series The pacing moves much better there were no slow pockets I was excited to keep reading from beginning to end.The only question that niggles me is view spoiler why how Cullen is able to slough off the very nature of lupi culture to choose monogamy The mate bond settles that issue for Rule but that doesn t apply here He can t be the first lupus to fall in love and definitely not the first to get a woman pregnant so why is this situation different Don t get me wrong, I need that to buy into a HEA, but it feels a little convenient hide spoiler (DOWNLOAD BOOK) õ Night Season ì Pregnancy Has Turned FBI Agent Cynna Weaver S Whole Life Upside Down Lupus Sorcerer

Beings Who Will Do Anything To Claim It 3.5 starsMost of the time I spent reading this, it felt like a 3 star book for me I was interested in the characters but not really the quest this time, and I was disappointed Lily and Rule didn t have a part in it But I liked how it ended for Cynna, Cullen and Gan I loved Gan s arc enough that it bumped the rating up a bit I would be interested to see Nathan, Kai, and Dell in future books I was just starting to get interested in them when the book ended I liked her elusive way of threading them into the plot I love Timms, and I m glad he s a recurring character I really like Wilks imagination, and she s dreamed up a neat world in this series The denouements in each book, as much as I like the end results, usually seem pretty rushed, though, and sometimes the exposition via dialogue is distracting She s got a lot to explain to the reader, so I see why she does it, but it isn t always very smooth But despite those minor irritations, she s got me hooked, and I m pretty sure I m in this series for the long haul I m looking forward to getting back to Lily and Rule in the next book and to see what s happening in their world after the big magical boost from book 3, especially what the implications will be for the Lupi.
