FBI agent Lily Yu’s mind is a dangerous place to be in the latest Novel of the Lupi…

Thanks to the mindspeech lessons she’s receiving from the black dragon, Lily is temporarily benched from Unit Twelve—until her brain acclimates and the risk of total burnout passes. At least she has her new husband, lupi Rule Turner, to keep her occupied.

But when her mentor calls in a favor and sends Lily to a murder scene, she’s suddenly back on active status—despite the hallucinations she can’t keep at bay.  With one touch, Lily knows the man was killed by magic, but her senses don’t warn her how far the conspiracy goes…

A shadowy force within the government wants to take Unit Twelve down, and they don't mind killing to achieve their goal. With none of her usual resources, Lily is up against impossible odds--because with her mind in disarray, she can’t trust anything she sees.


Fans and newcomers alike will not want to miss out on the latest installment of the Lupi Series by Eileen WilksMind Magic is book twelve in the series, but Eileen Wilks gives enough background to keep newcomers from being lost and entice them to read the rest of the series.

In Mind Magic, Lily Yu and Rule Turner are back onstage as the main characters.  I enjoyed reading about them again and Ms. Wilks does not disappoint in introducing new characters.  Readers will get to meet Demi, a girl who likes to be called Danny and has Asperger’s Syndrome.  Ms. Wilks does a fantastic job of bringing Demi to life in the pages and shedding light on this syndrome throughout the story.   We also are introduced to several new Leidolf Clan werewolves that are hard not to fall in love with.  I would be remiss not to mention the unforgettable little Brownies full of tricks and games that play a vital role in this story.

Mind Magic is a hard-core, action-packed, paranormal romance laced with urban fantasy and stirred with a bit of mystery.  The action starts on page one and just keeps going.  The plot will have you glued to the pages as you take the journey with Demi, Lily, Rule, and Ruben Brooks to find out who is trying to frame them and to what purpose.

In this book as others past, the Dragons play a role in how the events play out for Lily, Rule, and Ruben.  Eileen Wilks gives the readers more Dragon information and background in this book than in the previous ones and it is information that you need to know going forward in the series.  Dragon fans will be thrilled.  I will not give away any fun highlights about the Dragons as I had fun reading it so should you without spoilers. 

The plot feeds off previous story lines and adds new dimensions.  The evil the Lupi are fighting, the “Great Bitch”, is using a new resource to fight the “Lady”, the Lupi’s benefactor and creator.  The result of this book will help determine future plot lines of other books in the series.

There is so much that happens in Mind Magic that it is a must-read!
