#BookReview of "Lupo" (The Immortals book 8) by Monica La Porta @momilp

Congrats to Monica La Porta on the recent release of Lupo. I really love this paranormal series, and while each book can stand on its own, it's always best to start where it all began. Besides, the first book, The Lost Centurion, is FREE on Kindle HERE.

If you follow Monica’s Immortals series, then you know where Lupo’s tragic story left off at the end of The Lonely Wolf. After running away with Jasmine, his Purist were-panther mate, a fatal police chase leaves Lupo devastated and set to spend a year sentence in Regina Coeli, the paranormal prison. 

Lupo’s grief nearly saps him of his will to live, and only the love and dedication of the father he’d only just been reunited with gives Lupo the strength to prevail. Even with prominent fathers pulling strings to ensure his stay at Regina Coeli is as comfortable as can be expected, Lupo endures harsh treatment, crooked guards, and attacks orchestrated by those he’s slighted on the outside, looking for revenge. Lupo has imaginary conversations with Jasmine to pass the time in prison, only questioning their merit when the conversations suddenly stop. Is it a sign from the Great Wolf that it’s time to move on? Or does it mean something more?

Without giving anything away, I think it’s at least safe to say that Lupo’s story gets the closure it deserves at the end of this book. There are some definite tense moments, and some really, wonderfully descriptive bits about the Roman setting. As always, La Porta delivered another thrilling, colorful tale of star-crossed love, danger, and mystery, all set in the secret paranormal world of the Immortals series.

About Monica La Porta...

Monica La Porta is an Italian who landed in Seattle several years ago. Despite popular feelings about the Northwest weather, she finds the mist and the rain the perfect conditions to write. Being a strong advocate of universal acceptance and against violence in any form and shape, she is also glad to have landed precisely in Washington State. 

She is the author of The Ginecean Chronicles, a dystopian/science fiction series set on the planet Ginecea where women rule over a race of enslaved men and heterosexual love is considered a sin. She also published two other series: the futuristic love story across the universe, Elios & Gaia, narrated in two books; and the paranormal romance/urban fantasy series The Immortals set in Rome. Stop by her blog to read about her miniatures, sculptures, paintings, and her beloved beagle, Nero. Sometimes, she also posts about her writing.
