Death Magic- Eileen Wilks (book 8)

DEATH MAGIC opens with Special Agent Lily Yu in Washington, D.C. with her fiancé--lupi prince Rule Turner—to testify before a Senate subcommittee about her role in the magical collapse of a mountain last month. She is not there to tell them about the strange legacy she carries from that event—or about the arcane bond between her and Rule--or what her boss in Unit Twelve of the FBI’s Magical Crimes Division is really up to. She sure won’t tell them that the lupi are at war with an Old One who wants to remake humanity in her own image.
Lily is managing the conflict between her duty as an officer of the law and the need for secrecy pretty well . . . until the rabidly anti-magic senator who chairs that committee is murdered. The line between right and wrong, always so clear to her, becomes hopelessly blurred as events catapult them all towards disaster, and prophecies of a cataclysmic end to the country she loves and serves--and to the entire race of lupi--seem well on their way to being fulfilled.

This is the latest book out in this series, we find Rule and Lily back in D.C. on business. Where they go so does evil and evils little murdering minions so with the death of a high profile Senator, Lily is back to work with the FBI. Her boss is accused of murder and Lily is looking for ways to clear him, she knows that Death Magic was used to kill the Senator but she needs to find out who is controlling or using the death magic. Cullen comes to D.C. to help and so do lots of Lupi from various clans. Lily is arrested, Ruben (her boss) is changed and the war is getting closer. We meet Brownies in this book, I personally hope we hear more from Harry, the lead Brownie. I felt that this book left off with more of a cliff hanger than any of the other books- I for one def. have unanswered questions. Will there be babies in the future for Rule and Lily??  Will Grandmother come back around?? Will the wedding actually happen with no drama??
My Rating 4- 4.5       Wendy
