You absolutely must read these books in order though!
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
