"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which highlights upcoming release we are eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is Mortal Ties by Eileen Wilks.
Title: Mortal Ties
Author: Eileen Wilks
Release Date: October 2, 2012
Series: World of Lupi, Book 9
About Mortal Ties:
But the prototype can be dangerously erratic, discharging a bizarre form of mind magic—and it looks like the thief wants it for that very side effect. Worse, whoever stole the device didn’t learn about it by accident. There’s a Nokolai traitor in their midst.
Lily and Rule have to find the traitor, the thief, and the prototype. One job proves easy when the thief calls them--and his identity rocks Rule’s world.
As they race to recover their missing property, they find Robert Friar’s sticky footprints all over the place. Robert Friar--killer, madman, and acolyte of the Old One the lupi are at war with--an Old One whose power is almost as vast as her ambition to rock the entire world . . .
Why I'm Waiting for This Book: I began reading this series by accident - I picked up an anthology that had a story from a series I was reading and ended up reading a novella by Ms. Wilks. I couldn't put it down so I decided to go looking for other books by Ms. Wilks and discovered it was a part of the Lupi series (which is usually how things happen for me *sigh*). Anyway, I fell in love with Ms. Wilks voice and easily caught up reading all of the books. Unfortunately I've fallen behind (hey...I'm only behind one book and a novella) and I plan to catch up as soon as this story comes out. Ms. Wilks has a very fantastic writers voice and this series, while involving several paranormal type characters, has a fairly unique take on werewolves and their mythology. Plus, I want to be Lily Yu and have Rule, a super sexy werewolf, as my hero!
