Relationships between mothers and daughters can be prickly and intense, which is certainly the case between FBI agent Lily Yu and her mother, Julia. But things get especially disturbing when a magical attack destroys Julia’s memories, reverting her to her 12-year-old self. Uber- talented Wilks does an awesome job showcasing the confusion this vicious attack engenders amongst all the various characters. This is one consistently outstanding series. If you have not visited Wilks’ world of the Lupi, you are missing out!

Lily Yu’s wedding to Lupi leader Rule Turner is only a few weeks away, so the pressure is on. Lily’s mom, Julia, and Rule have been organizing it, but then during a 57th birthday celebration for Julia, the unthinkable happens: Julia suddenly loses all memories beyond 12 years of age and is therefore frightened by all these strangers. Lily and Rule immediately suspect this is the work of zealot Robert Friar on behalf of his bitch goddess — but for what purpose? (BERKLEY SENSATION, Sep., 416 pp., $7.99)
