View our feature on Eileen Wilks’s Blood Magic.A new World of Lupi novel from “a true master of her craft” (Eternal Night)
Lily Yu and Lupi prince Rule Turner have a bigger problem than their families not accepting their impending human/werewolf mixed marriage. A powerful ancient nemesis of Lily’s grandmother has come to San Diego to turn the city into a feeding ground.
These “Dear Reader” letters always strike me as being like a blind date in which only one of the daters is allowed to talk. Awkward. If you’d enjoy more back-and-forth, look me up on my website or on Facebook. In the meantime, I’ll assume you’re reading this because you’re curious about Blood Magic. What’s it about? Is it your kind of story?
I had a great discussion with an Amazon reviewer over whether or not my books are romances. He doesn’t think they are. I do, but there’s no denying they aren’t the standard. Blood Magic opens nine months after Lily Yu’s world changed when she met Rule Turner, known to the human world as “that werewolf prince.” It’s been eight months since everyone else’s world changed, too—when the Turning hit. That shifting of the realms has magic seeping back into the world in quantities unseen since the hot news story concerned a pair of human babes raised by wolves who went on to found a new city.
Lily Yu is a homicide cop turned FBI agent. She works for a special Unit within the MCD—that’s the Bureau’s Magical Crimes Division. Lily became a cop to stop the monsters . . . though it was human monsters she had in mind at the time. These days, the perps she tracks may be a lot more—or a lot less—than human.
In Blood Magic, Lily and Rule are faced with their most dangerous opponent yet, one the law can’t touch. One who can’t be killed. One whose like hasn’t been seen in our world since long before those wolves fostered Romulous and Remus.
Oh, one more thing about Blood Magic: Grandmother is back.
Those of you who haven’t read the previous books in my World of the Lupi series may be scratching your head about now. Someone’s grandmother shows up and you’re supposed to get all tingly?
I understand. You might be more interested in some of the other characters in Blood Magic, like the assassin. Or the dragon. Or the ancient, undying enemy willing to wait for centuries to achieve what really matters.
