    1. This book was very detailed! It was difficult to connect to the plot when you are given a description of everything throughout the entire novel. I felt that with some editing to remove the excessive, detailed, descriptions this would be a solid 5 star read, As it stands it's 3.5 stars for me.I received this ARC copy of Dragon Blood from Berkley Publishing Group. This is my honest and voluntary review. Dragon Blood is set for publication Jan. 2, 2018.


    2. Full disclosure, Dragon Blood is a book I found difficult to get into, and I skimmed a bit. Parts of the story were interesting, but there was too much skipping around and far too much detailed description of random ‘stuff’. I would have loved for this book and the last one to have been a single book; with a heavy round of editing.I didn’t care for the story being set fully in the dragon realm, I much prefer the storylines that stay in the earth realm. Grandmother played a large role, that [...]



    3. Remember the Cliffhanger? aka when ppl are dying in Dis andddenly you are in another place?Yep. That's the one.Well , it goes like this: a little ofand then we got the impression of having fall into with less enfasis in the sacrifice of the virgins and more in the lupi children and where Lily is no-game. And Grandmother rocks.rtc----------------eileenwilks/#!/dragon-blood


    4. Dragon Blood takes off from where the previous book, Dragon Spawn, left readers with an annoying cliffhanger. Lily, Rule, and a number of others were in the demon world Dis, trying to retrieve the Lupi children kidnapped by dragon spawn Tom Weng and the avatar of the Great Bitch. Events were going at breakneck speed and the culminating battle was not going well, so Lily and a few others were whisked to another realm. Events from the previous book are summarized at the beginning of this one and t [...]


    5. *Source* NetGalley*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 3.0*Thoughts*Dragon Blood is the 14th installment in author Eileen Wilks World of the Lupi series. If you are a fan of this series, then you have already read Dragon Spawn. If you've read Dragon Spawn, then you know that that book is one of the very few in this series that ended on a stunning cliffhanger. This is a series that features FBI Special Agent Lily Yu, and her husband Rule Tanner who are fighting to save Earth from the Great Bitch and her [...]


    6. 2.5 ✭It took me 4 nights to read Dragon Blood. 4! I've read a 1000 page Sanderson's book in less time. Explanation upon explanation of magical theory and philosophical discussions literally were putting me to sleep. I kept reading the same paragraphs over and over and they still didn't make sense.We were left on a cliffhanger in the last book and it took until 98% of this book to get back to where we startedtime continuum and all that rot(whose explanation was also snooze worthy). It took so l [...]


    7. Eileen Wilks has been setting up a showdown between Lily, Rule and The Great Bitch for what feels like eons. This is book fourteen after all. The Great Bitch is the supreme villain, although our heroes have been fighting her minions since this series started. She has focused on Lily because she wants to use Lily’s body as an avatar on Earth. Magic does not have an effect on Lily, which makes her the perfect host. As Dragon Blood begins right where Dragon Spawn left off (cliffhanger), Lily has [...]


    8. Lily Yu, along with Rule, Cynna, Grandmother, and Gan, find themselves in Long Jia, the fabled Dragonhome, on their quest to rescue the missing Lupi children. The missing children include Rule's son Toby and Cynna's daughter Ryder. Of course, they are also trying to defeat the Great Bitch and it looks like the dragon spawn on Dragonhome have made some sort of deal with her.They are taken from Dis to Long Jia by Gan who doesn't manage to keep them all together. Cynna and Lily end up in the capito [...]


    9. At the end of the last book, I was like %$*# cliffhangersAt the end of this book, I'm like yay!!!!Good resolution to this story arc, and Wilks built the groundwork for the next story arc.There's not real "romance" in here exactly, though many other kinds of love are shown. I actually really enjoyed that, but the longer this series goes on, the more I think it's shelved in the wrong genre. Oh well.I continue to enjoy how all the characters have an internal POV in this series -- whether or not the [...]



    10. Interesting. Thankfully doesn't end on a cliffhanger. I have no idea where that brother came from. I'll probably need to do a backwards re-read -- unless it was part of a short story?


    11. I’ve enjoyed the Lupi series and looked forward to every book coming out until this one. The last book, Dragon Spawn, began to lose my interest about the time the group went to Dis and then left us in a cliffhanger that promised more of the same. This one, with its otherworldly setting, took a long time to catch my interest again, but in the last quarter the excitement finally started to build and I was pleased with the ending. Overall, however, I just don’t feel like this book is up to the [...]

    13. So my first thought at the end of Dragon Spawn was, "Oh, no, not another Dis story!" Well, other fans of this awesome series must have expressed similar dismay because E.W. very cleverly incorporates those complaints into the words and thoughts of Lily, Cynna, Rule, and other characters throughout Dragon Blood. Made me chuckle at each occurrence. This time the story is much easier to follow because Lily remains herself and the timeline jumps are more clearly defined. Lily's grandmother's charact [...]


    14. I didn't care for the beginning, I found the story line moving too slowly, but it picked up by the midpoint of the story! I enjoyed it from that point on! Interesting story!


    15. I had such a hard time with this book, much like the one set in Dis. It was so wordy and easy to get lost with the unfamiliar setting and all the language issues.I did really like the parts with Rule and Grandmother, love how their relationship has changed. I also liked how Lily and Cynna were able to comfort and bolster each other.


    16. This was an advance reading copy.I was not very happy with the previous instalment in this series, and had thought about giving up on it. So glad I didn't, this book was great!I was also not pleased to see the book start with Rule and Lily separatedAIN I like their interactions, and I didn't think I would like their interactions with others as much (I haven't previously). But this book was really enjoyable, even with them split up.


    17. I love Lily and Rue. This was the second installment of what happens when the two of them and their friends go up against the G.B. This time they end up in Dragonhome and we learn more about dragons and their spawn, as well as more about Grandmother. I laughed at parts and held my breath at others. Some of it I was confused, but there was a lot about different theories which went over my head. I was glad to see that they remain one of my favorite couples and Grandmother is such a strong woman.


    18. The previous book left us hanging - as in cliffhanger - and book 14 finally gives us some closure. Wilks doesn't get enough credit when it comes to this wonderful series - each book is well-plotted, tons of actions, with excellent bad guys who are layered - and then there is Lily and Rule - solid, unbreakable, no need to get all lovey-dovey and spout off about their transcendent love every 5 pages - because they are better than that.Thoroughly enjoyed this visit to another realm - liked the Spaw [...]



    19. This week, I obtained and read a galley of DRAGON BLOOD by Eileen Wilks, out in January 2018. The previous volume in the series, which I'd read on vacation back in August, ends on a cliffhanger, so this was a real relief! As usual with this series, the book left some plot threads dangling and opened up some new ones, but the cliffhanger wasn't as maddening as the previous one.I've stuck with this series for so long because of the ongoing, ever-evolving relationship between Lily Yu and Rule Turne [...]


    20. Oh, this book was freaking fantastic! Taking place a week before the events of Dragon Spawn, it was so fantastic, and I really enjoyed it! Loved being in Dragonhome, it was so interesting, and the new characters and the culture! Can't wait for the next book!


    21. The last book in the series, Dragon Spawn, left things in a dire, precarious position for Lily and the others. I have been impatient to get my hands on Dragon Blood to learn their fate. The author has a gift for digging deep into the motives, background, and true emotions of her plots and characters while delivering a suspenseful and action-laced story line.Dragon Blood is the fourteenth installment in the World of the Lupi series. This strongly developed urban fantasy series that feels more lik [...]

    23. This is such a hard book to rate and review it is truly not a complete book, as part of a series, and given the cliffhanger in the previous, this book relies a great deal on the one before for its motivation and conflict. I'm rating it higher because the book works within the series, moves the action forward, and sets up the next book--which I am looking forward to reading. In that respect, the book worked.However. If I hadn't had such great affection for this series and its characters, this boo [...]


    24. 2.5 star. Started off really well. Fast paced and action packed with Lily & Cynna in the heart of dragon spawn territory. With occasional checkins on grandmother, rule and Gan while Lily juggles being an honored prisoner, dragon spawn discussions and some torture things where shaping up for an exciting read. Then suddenly we are pulled out of the action for random snippets, in random palces about random people a week past. Yes I am sure they will eventually be relevant to the story but at th [...]


    25. 12/27/17Centuries ago; Tom Weng (dragon spawn) had managed to survive. Washington, DC. FBI Unit 12 had been blown to smothering’s. Bodies lay everywhere. Many gifted employees were unaccountable for. Toby, Ryder, Cynna Weaver (Lily’s companion), Diego, Sandy (4, Czos), & Noah (3 months), had been taken from their homes. 2 claws grabbed ahold of FBI SA Lily Yu (wife, werewolf, unit 12), but Gan managed to snatch her from him.Where would their journey/adventure take them next? What happene [...]


    26. Review written by Marie for Ever After Book Reviews!3.5 StarsI have to be honest here. I wasn’t a HUGE fan of this book. I’ve read the first books in the series, and I enjoyed those, but with Dragon Blood being set mostly in the dragon realm, without the earth realm, I just didn’t get nearly as in to it as I had with the previous books.Now, because I know that I am just one person, with one opinion, I have to give credit where credit is due in regard to the book. In all fairness to Ms. Wil [...]


    27. 4.5 starsLoved it!! I went into this book thinking it would be super fast paced coming off all the energy from Dargon Spawn. I was wrong and happy to be. There was just so much packed into this book and the slow build was worth it. I could FEEL Lily's anxiousness to get to the end point, to get to the "go" moment but also her desire to get as much information as possible. It was hard to wait but important to wait. The pacing is perfect from a slow build to just heart pounding, panting goodness.I [...]
