Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In Cybermancy (2007), Ravirn, grandson of the fate Lachesis and the muse Thalia, got blown to chaos and recreated as a more powerful demigod. He also made an immortal enemy of Hades. Now, coming to terms with his new status and staying out of his enemies’ way, he attracts trouble by taking on, however reluctantly, the job of ridding Necessity, the sentient computer that runs the universe, of a virus. Repair completed, he will, for a moment, run the universe and be able to change anything. Some very unpleasant beings want to bring him to that point and then dispose of him. McCullough balances the seriousness and the slapstick nearly perfectly. --Frieda Murray

Codespell - the third in his "Web Wizard" series - manages to continue to expand and grow the characters in a delightful way. By contrast, I've often found book series analogous to the Web Wizard saga where the characters become static and only the adventure changes... McCullough keeps it FRESH!!

You absolutely must read these books in order though!

Ravirn may be the umpteenth great-grandson of Lachesis, one of the three Fates, but he is no longer part of their House. Recently Ravirn has become his own House, House Raven. The CEO of Pantheon Inc, Zeus, throws a party and for Ravirn attendance is mandatory. Ravirn is more than a little surprised when he spies Dairn at the party. Ravirn had been pretty sure Dairn had died during their last battle. As uncomfortable Ravirn is whenever he looks into the mirror and sees chaos reflected in his eyes, he is even more stunned to see what is in Dairn's eyes. Looks like Ravirn is not the only one to receive an upgrade lately.

Within Dairn's body is a (sort of) dead goddess. Nemesis used to be Goddess of Vengeance, visiting the wrath of the gods on the heads of men, and the wrath of Necessity, the sentient computer, on the heads of the gods. For some unknown (to Ravirn) reason, Nemesis is back and her entire being is focused on deleting Ravirn's existence - permanently. The only one able to deal with Nemesis is her mother, Necessity. But Necessity is currently (ahem) broken and her where-abouts are unknown.

Whoever repairs Necessity will, for that moment, run the entire universe and be able to remake everything to his/her liking. This means that many dangerous people (or beings, if you prefer) are trying to locate Necessity. Ravirn and his new girlfriend, Tisiphone (the Fury), and Melchior (little, blue web goblin) team up. Blend in some spicy help from the Goddess of Discord and they have the makings of a very hot team. Oh, did I mention that Hades still wants Ravirn dead as well?

***** Personally, Tisiphone has always been my favorite Fury.

The magical universe has shut down and rebooting it isn't restoring the system. Ravirn, turned demi-god (or pretty close to it), is having to fix it. With Nemesis, the Goddess of Revenge, after him that's not easy...

McCullough's universe is as great as in the previous two books. This book however comes across as more action packed. What is nice about that, is that it makes the book fast-paced, draws out the character of the Furies, gives more insight into his divine family ("Meet your grandmother!"), refreshes his love interest. Slightly less positive is the effect it has on the depth of character we've gotten used to in the first two books. There's less "people" (i.e. characters of all sorts, be they divine, punk-fairy, cyber-mythological or otherwise) to meet, to be entertained by and to enjoy.

For a large part I was pretty lost in this book. No idea what the action actually was about... And then suddenly, McCullough turned it around, quite smoothly and it all made sense. It's a nice book. Not bad at all. But less suprising than the previous two. And with a little less depth.

This series is awesome & you can't go wrong reading it. Characters are deep, the sarcasm is excellent & when funny happens, you will fall out of your chair AND be left with a sore face from the laughing!

The writing is fun, witty, and as exuberant as ever. The story is fun, fast paced, and ensnares the imagination. If you enjoyed the previous two books in the series, you'll definitely enjoy Codespell.

I was lucky to be able to read all three books in a row, including this new one, and I had a blast!

Fast, fun and Fury-ous. Like the first two, this one starts moving and doesn't let up. Great twists and turns, and more about Ravirn the "Raven" coming into his own in a strange universe that mixes computers and Greek mythology.

Not a stand-alone, because the plot-line is very dependent on the first two books. The author does a good job of trying to catch a reader up, but I think the magic just wouldn't be the same unless you read the other two in order. Another series for my keeper shelf.

This 3rd entry into the world of Raven does not disappoint. In fact I really, really need for Kelly to write book 4 so I will know what happened to the webtroll!

For a person that loves magical things and computers and myth, life don't get no betta than this.

These books are a mix of Xanith, Disc World, The Enchanted Forest Chronicles and a computer hand book. A surprise at every turn.

I am not about to give away anything here. Buy the 3 books then bug Kelly until he writes the 4th.
