    1. Yes, the book was good. However, it was incomplete, so I am giving an incomplete amount of stars. It's only fair.It's like when you are watching your favorite television show and it's coming to the end of the allotted time when you realize: "Oh crap! They aren't going to be able to wrap this up in time!". It's one of the dreaded to-be-continued episodes. That's annoying!So, we have half of an otherwise exciting story. I might reconsider my stars once the full story is out.

    2. I bloody hate cliffhangers! This one ends with a huge one. It is like a full length novel cut right in the middle. Nothing is resolved, no clue what's going on. Not like Wilks at all. I remember reading a comment from Wilks saying something about if we ever see Michael and Molly again, it means that shit hits the fan in an apocalyptic sense. As you can guess, we have our first glimpse of him here. This is the start of the last leg of war and I think we are getting close to the end of the series. [...]

    3. I enjoyed this 13th installment of the Lupi Books. It wasn’t quite as strong as Mind Magic, but it still was a solid Lily and Rune book. The biggest problem I had was that the ending wasn’t really an ending it all. I couldn’t even honestly call it a cliffhanger. The book just stopped. And that’s not cool.The story picks up right on the heels of the last one. Lily and Rune are finally back home, but they don’t have much of an opportunity to relax. Her old nemesis, Tom Weng, is back and [...]

    4. The good news - there's another book planned for this series. The bad news - hell of a cliffhanger ending. Full review to come closer to release date.Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for a review copy of this book.

    5. Full review3.5 Stars. Dragon Spawn is a pretty good, if unfinished read. There are two storylines going on here. In one, Rule is challenged as Leidolf Rho by high dominant lupus. Apparently, high f dominants are completely unable to submit to the Rho. The other storyline is the one that takes up most of the page time. The botched dragon hatching Tom Weng survived the helicopter crash, and he is back with the Great Bitch, who has taken over the body of Ginger Harris. Together they cause several d [...]

    6. After the ending of the last book, I expected this book to have a certain focus. That did not happen. Instead the book took off in a completely different direction. I wasn't sure at first, if I would like the plot, but I did. Some of the characters remained a little flat at first, but others took an interesting step forward. Lily Yu changed so much from the first books! A lot more badass! And Rule turned into a much softer guy.There was a lot of info dumping shortly after the middle of the book, [...]

    7. Thirteenth in the World of the Lupi paranormal fantasy series revolving around FBI Agent Lily Yu and Rule, who holds the mantles of two Clans. It's been two months since Mind Magic, 12.My TakeWait. Don't get this book until Dragon Blood comes out in 2017. Dragon Spawn has the most annoying ending. I felt as if Wilks left me hanging in mid-air after jumping off a cliff, much like Wile E Coyote hangs there until he realizes there's nothing beneath him.It took forever for Wilks to get to the point, [...]

    8. Primero que nada: El libro termina en CLIFFHANGER, sólo para que lo sepan.Perdí la mitad de mis notas al borrarlas por error, pero recuerdo perfectamente esto: PRIMERA ESCENA - CULLEN SEABORN EN ZUNGA.Cullen siendo fantabuloso en zunga. Wow.Yo quiero video en camara lenta de eso. "The woman in front of him let out a loud laugh. “If you’re tired of women climbing all over you, why you wearing that little Speedo? Man as pretty as you don’t need to show off what he’s got.” “What, you [...]

    9. World of the Lupi is an excellent example of an Urban Fantasy. Mrs. Wilks has created a fantastic universe with some pretty memorable characters!I get excited whenever a new book comes out because I can't wait to see what new adventure Lily, Rule, Cullen, and Cynna are about to embark on together. Dragon Spawn is good from the very beginning. It has an excellent prologue, not because Cullen is wearing a speedo (which doesn't hurt) but because it gives you a taste of his commitment towards his fa [...]

    10. Dragon Spawn (World of the Lupi #13) by Eileen Wilks   Lily learns she was right. Tom Weng—a powerful sorcerer allied with the Old One who keeps trying to take over the world—is still alive.  But that's not the worst. Weng is a dragon spawn, the product of a botched hatching given a human form in an attempt to keep him from going mad. A failed attempt.   Meanwhile, Lily’s husband Rule is facing a Challenge to the death. Then there’s the possible reappearance of another sorcerer.  Bu [...]

    11. I really like this series but I couldn't be more disappointed in this latest novel. It got downright tedious a lot. Pages and pages of convoluted dragon-speak, pages of detailed description of multiple varieties of monsters, pages of excessive chatter by humorous characters all added to the verbal bog. Add to this the sheer chaos of crises on every front and I found myself getting numb and skimming to be done. In the end there was no payoff for wading through all the verbiage and unrelenting dis [...]

    12. *Source* Publisher*Genre* Urban Fantasy*Rating* 4.0*My Thoughts*Dragon Spawn, by author Eileen Wilks, is the 13th installment in the World of the Lupi series. This is a story where the hits start from the very beginning, and don't end until the cliffhanger ending, which I believe is the first of its kind in this series. Right from the start, Lily Yu, Unit 12 Special Agency, Chosen, & mate to Rule Tanner, has her job cut out for her. From a surprising visit from someone Cullen has been search [...]

    13. True Rating is 3.5 starsThis review is based on an eARC I received from NetGalley. It is an honest and voluntary review and the advanced receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.Action-packed supernatural story with lively writing and fantastic world building! There is a plethora of supernatural creatures in this novel my favorite being dragons. The written descriptions of the dragons are just beautiful. I also like the inclusion of gnomes and brownies in the story. I enjoy it when t [...]

    14. (RabidReads)3.5 stars. I discovered this series on my own a few years ago. I loved the world, the characters, and just about everything about it, and I ended up reading the first three. Then I got involved in too many other series and just never went back until Mind Magic, the book just previous to this one. Of course I wanted to jump in and read this one as soon as I saw it offered on Net Galley. And while it was good, it just didn’t live up to how good Mind Magic was-at least for me anyway.L [...]

    15. Looks like the Great Bitch is back and doing what she does best, cause chaos. And what causes chaos more than disrupting the dragons and stealing what is most precious to the Lupi. With those 2 acts everyone is at loose ends and everyone wants to go after her. They sort of have a plan, but it seems more like things work for them. With the ending you really aren't sure if they succeeded or not, hate the cliffhanger, but will be looking forward to the next book to see what happened.

    16. So this one barely made a 3 starr Rule mostly. It was nice seeing him act like the Alpha he is again, which had been sorely missing in the last few books. But that ending? Are you freaking serious? This is the 13th book in the series. (not counting novellas) I've come to expect (with good reason13th!) some conclusion to the predominant storyline in each book although the overall arc is ongoing. DS ended in a full blown cliffhanger. One that was poorly executed, I might add. The war is heating up [...]

    17. I've had a love/hate relationship with this series. I love the charactersabsolutely adore them all. I love it when the author hits her stride and shows us a fantastic, action packed, urban fantasy story that is filled with mystery, suspense, and all kinds of fascinating creatures. This book was wonderful until it just ended"boom" resolution, major pause, huge cliffhanger, that 'you-get-to-wait-for-the-next-book' kind of torture that I despise. I probably should take an extra star away because of [...]

    18. This book just ends. I don't think I've ever seen a "cliff - hanger" ending that didn't still at least finish the smaller story arc, before leaving you on the edge for the larger. Did not like. At all.

    19. Cliffhanger. Such a massive cliffhanger. This really does feel too much like a prequel instead of a story in its own right. It did have a few good scenes. I liked Lily claiming Toby but honestly it felt a little slow in coming. Rule and Lily have been together for two years now, how has this not happened sooner?At this point I'm starting to worry the author is running out of material and is attempting to stretch what little she has across multiple books.

    20. Interesting story line! Lily and Rule are back in Dis! And just when I'm deep into the story, it ends! Cliffhanger alert!

    21. Extra 1/2 star.What?? No. Needs more book. And that ending was EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL!!What there is was good but after the previous books, I was expecting more.

    22. Sam, the great Black Dragon, is finally willing to release some secrets about the Sorcerer Tom Weng and the dragon’s shameful secretWhen the missiles start landingThe nature of the dragonspawn become a less pressing problem as Sam is attacked, nuclear weapons start flying and Lupi children start disappearingThe war with the Enemy is finally coming.Hmmmm… hmmmmmHmmmmm…This is kind of what I’ve been doing and why I’ve just spent several several hours trying to start this review and then [...]

    23. This would have been a 5 Star read for me except for the cliffhanger ending!! 4 1/2 StarsOh boy, more Lily, Rule and a host of others!!What I liked: When you wait for almost a year or more for an installment in a favorite series, you hope it’s worth the wait; Dragon Spawn WAS worth the wait and yet, not. First things first….I love this series when Lily and Rule are the stars as that is how I fell in love with it oh, so many years ago. I mean think about it, magic, dragons, Lupi, shifters, de [...]

    24. This is an original review from Booked and LoadedOriginal rating: 4.5/5Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks is the 13th book in her World of the Lupi series. This series is still going strong and the world building is truly astonishing.Dragon Spawn is roller coaster ride of a read. This series is one of my favorites and I always start to get nervous when one of my favorite series is pushing over 10 publications. I start worrying about things like (because these things HAVE HAPPENED MANY TIMES):Q: Will t [...]

    25. Remember earlier books were there was an actual case that Lily investigated and solved as she and Rule learnt about each other and how to balance the mate bond and Rule dealt with Lupi politics. Yeah me too. What the hell happened to those – they were good.This is a case of too much going yet there is no follow through on any of it so instead we get lots of boring explanations, dragon lectures (but god forbid they explain anything) and long detailed descriptions of things with no actual story [...]

    26. As a fan of the series, I wanted to give this a higher rating; but couldn't bring myself to do it. It's probably a 2 1/2 stars for me. The story was just so disjointed, and some of the scenes were, frankly, unnecessary, with zero impact on events or character building. The characters' motivations were repetitive, and their interactions rote. I hadn't ever been bored with the stories in this series until now. But by far the harshest criticism I have is with the ending. I get that Wilks wanted thi [...]

    27. I love the earlier books in this series. I would have given this book 5 stars, but the story cuts off and does not finish. It seem like we only got half the book. At the end I was looking to see if I was missing pages! :(

    28. 3.5 stars(view spoiler)[ Cliffhanger!! There are so many dangling threads that evenDirty Harrywould feel overwhelmed! But it looks like Ms Wilks is upping the ante with the Great Bitchtaking the war out into the open. (hide spoiler)]Hope the next installment comes out soon!
