In Wilks’ outstanding Lupi series, the tremendous, world-altering changes are gaining steam as her protagonists must adapt or fall. Although the main focus of the series has been FBI agent Lily Yu and her mate Lupi Prince Rule Turner, Rule’s brother Benedict has been a significant presence in the books. In Blood Challenge, Benedict is pushed front and center as the war between ancient entities heats up. UF at its most entertaining!

After Lily and Ruben Brooks are nearly killed in separate assassination attempts, the Lupi go on high alert. The prime suspect is Humans First leader Robert Friar. As Benedict does reconnaissance around Friar’s compound, he runs into Arjenie, who is on her own mission. Arjenie is part-sidhe and working with an individual being forced to help Friar. Since Benedict lost his chosen mate to death, he never expected the Lupi goddess to provide him with another, but the moment their eyes meet, Benedict and Arjenie are mated. Arjenie is under a geas not to reveal certain information, but if they are to stop Friar’s horrific plan, they must find a way around it. (BERKLEY SENSATION, Jan., 455 pp., $7.99)
