A short story, 4.2, in the World of the Lupi paranormal fantasy series and revolving around Cullen Seabourne’s counseling session with Father Michaels. This is a free PDF offered on Eileen Wilks’ website.

My Take

The third person point-of-view is from Father Michaels’ perspective and is a fascinating take on the pre-Cana counseling, as Father Michaels discusses the reasons a werewolf who worships the Lady wants to marry Cynna and insists on marrying her in the Catholic Church.

It’s also a dig at societal expectations of what constitutes a successful pair who want to wed.

I think anyone getting married with Cullen’s reasons would last in their partnership.

The Story

It’s a requirement of the Catholic Church that those who want to marry within the Church attend pre-Cana counseling. And Father Michaels has his doubts about why a lupus wants to marry, let alone marry within the Church.

The Characters

Cullen Seabourne is lupus and a sorcerer who’s getting married. His mother was Wiccan.

Father Abraham Michaels is counseling Cullen and Cynna. Dora is his assistant.

Caitlyn Murphy and Mike Donahue are Father Michaels’ next appointment.

A lupus is what we know as a werewolf.

The Cover and Title

The cover is pale yellows with a golden wolf with white markings facing us, his muzzle turned to the right. The author’s name is in black at the top while the title is in a medium green-blue against a white background that angles up to the right. I love the bit of information informing us that it’s a deleted scene from the series.

The title is the result of the meeting and must have been “Good Counsel”.
