Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In McCullough's taut third book in the Ravirn series (after WebMage and Cybermancy), Necessity, sentient creator of the mweb, has fallen victim to a virus, and all of reality is at stake. It's up to sorcerer/hacker-cum-minor deity Ravirn, accompanied by his faithful familiar, Melchior (laptop and goblin in one) to save the day. Of the host of evildoers interested in controlling Necessity (and thereby reality), public enemy number one is Nemesis, who is likely partnered with Fate. Meanwhile, Ravirn's ex, Cerice, is apparently working against him, and Ravirn finds his affections torn between Eris (a Discord) and Tisiphone (a Fury)-but can he trust either of them? A hint of cyberpunk, a dollop of Greek mythology and a sprinkle of techno-magic bake up into an airy genre mashup. Lots of fast-paced action and romantic angst up the ante as Ravirn faces down his formidable foes. (May)

    This is a fun to read fantasy

    Magical has gone digital in the twenty-first century with magic performed on the MWeb which uses computers formed by webgoblins. Both forms are sentient and Melchior, Ravirn¿s familiar is loved by the man who once owned him then set him free when he realizes he was sentient. After fighting Hades, he was turned into a Chaos entity with his own House of Raven. While in Hades, he rescued Persephone and his girlfriend¿s webgoblin Shara. He e-mails her to Raven¿s girlfriend Cerice. He did not realize that Persephone created a virus that she placed in Shara.----------- Now the magic of the mweb is chaotic and working at fifty percent capacity. Cerice leaves Ravirn to repair the supercomputer Necessity and because she belongs to the House of the Fates where order is obsessive and she realizes she cannot cope with the chaos Raven brings. Necessity is a goddess who turned herself into a supercomputer so that magical users can access the multiverse while the Fates are subordinates to the compute. The Fates hope to repair the machine, but under their control. Ravirn is backed by the Furies to fix their mother Necessity so that the Fates will not have control of her. He holds all the powers of the world in his fingertips, which leads to many wanting him dead before he repairs Necessity.----------------- This is a fun to read fantasy filled with irreverent witticisms, plenty of action, and a mind boggling romantic subplot. The protagonist has become a demigod and has a new outlook while juggling romances, avoiding enemies and relatives who in some cases are both, and fixing a sentient computer. Ravirn has a dry wit and a streak of kindness that at times gets him in trouble but endears him to readers as he bumbles and fumbles with a CODE SPELL.--------------- Harriet Klausner
