World of the Lupi
9 : Mortal Ties

by Eileen Wilks
Dec 1, 2014
6 Hours
Ages 18+
FBI agent Lily Yu is living at Nokolai Clanhome with her fiancé, lupi Rule Turner, when an intruder penetrates their territory, stealing the prototype of a magical device the clan hopes will be worth a fortune--if a few bugs can be worked out...

But the prototype can be dangerously erratic, discharging a bizarre form of mind magic—and it looks like the thief wants it for that very side effect. Worse, whoever stole the device didn't learn about it by accident. There’s a Nokolai traitor in their midst.

Lily and Rule have to find the traitor, the thief, and the prototype. One job proves easy when the thief calls them--and his identity rocks Rule’s world.

As they race to recover their missing property, they find Robert Friar’s sticky footprints all over the place. Robert Friar--killer, madman, and acolyte of the Old One the lupi are at war with--an Old One whose power is almost as vast as her ambition to rock the entire world...

This series continues to be great by Amy (Posted on 1/11/2017)
I loved this book.
I really liked this one. by Jennifer (Posted on 12/18/2015)
Politics, Intrigue, and Murder… Oh My!

What I Liked: I’ve totally adjusted to the new voice of Rule Turner. Actually, that only took about 30 minutes of listening. :) I also really like three of the new characters: Ghost-Al Drummond, Jasper Machek, and Alycithin. I know from the preview of Ritual Magic that Al will be back; I hope we see more of Jasper and Alycithin, too.

Grandmother puts in an appearance! I love it when Grandmother is involved. I love how she bosses everyone around, too.

I also liked that the Fey have sixteen words for “enemy” and seven words for “friend.” I’d love to hear more about those definitions.

What I Didn’t Like: I’m noticing more and more that the GraphicAudio books are abridged–not because they are done poorly by any means; I think GA has adapted the books for production very well–but because I notice storylines that aren’t quite finished or a lack of details that I imagine would be in the book.

For example, in Mortal Ties, the story never comes back to Lily’s sister, Beth, whose call starts off the story. The fey describe friendships “of the third degree” and “of the fifth degree,” but the meanings are never explained in the audio. The ending scene with Al Drummond makes me think there is more about him in the books, too. So, as much as I love listening to the GA versions, I have a feeling I’m going to have to switch to the books soon, or finish the series in GA and then reread the books.

Plus the books have a glossary of characters and terms. With as wonderfully complex as Wilks’ world is getting, a glossary might be necessary!

This story is getting better and better.
One of my fav's by Jamee (Posted on 1/16/2015)
I am very very into the sci-fi/fantasy books, thus The World of the Lupi series is a fav in my collection. As always when leaving reviews....when a series is NOT a stand-alone title....it is enjoyed the MOST when starting at book 1. Others have commented on Rule's voice....I was in agreement in the beginning....but am quite used to it at this point. A serious "hats off" to GA for keeping me entertained no matter where life takes me. Excellent production GA.

I liked it a lot and I am looking forward to hear the next book Ritual Magic
They Are All Great by Shannon (Posted on 12/13/2014)
I've listened to all of the world of the lupi books and they're all great. I hope the author can keep up with the demand from Graphic Audio because I don't want to wait any longer than I have to for the next book to be released in Graphic Audio. Keep up the good work.

Still getting used to Rule's new voice but still intrigued by every book anxious for the next one
Best one yet by Rocky (Posted on 11/23/2014)
Very exciting. I was only going to listen to the first couple of hours while I did the dishes and wound up sitting down and listening to the whole thing!

I especially enjoyed the relationship between Drummond and Lily. Also it is fun to see Grandmother in action yet again. Looking forward to the next installment.
