“Waiting On” Wednesday is a meme created at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases that we can’t wait to read.
This week I’m waiting on Mortal Ties by Eileen Wilks.
Here’s the summary, taken from Goodreads:
FBI agent Lily Yu is living at Nokolai Clanhome with her fiancé, lupi
Rule Turner, when an intruder penetrates their territory, stealing the prototype of a magical device the clan hopes will be worth a fortune–if a few bugs can be worked out . . .
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 . . .
Wilks has consistently written one of the best werewolf UF’s out there, perfectly straddling the line between plot and romance. I admit, I’ve had the last book, Death Magic, languishing on my shelf for a long time now, so I’ll have to catch up before this one comes out.
This title is released on October 2, 2012.
