Hades has a hell of a firewall in this WebMage novel from Kelly McCullough. Not just any computer geek can hack into Hades. But Ravirn, a direct descendant of one of the three Fates, is no ordinary hacker. Magic has gone digital in the twenty-first century, and Ravirn is a sorcerer with a laptop--otherwise known as his shape-changing best friend.   These days, Ravirn's crashing at his girlfriend's place while she works on her doctorate in computer science. Only one problem: all of her research is in her webgoblin's memory, which is now in Hades along with its soul. To save Cerice's webgoblin (and her PhD), Ravirn must brave Hell itself. But can he do it without corrupting the mweb--the magical internet--and without facing down the Lord of the Dead himself?… (más)

Note: review contains massive spoilers and is ROT-13'd.

I suspect this series has already jumped the shark, but I still plan to read the third. You never know.

[Later note: I've decided to leave the above as originally written for now, but I did feel better disposed toward this book after reading the third one.] ( )

Still interesting - a very different world - but the acceleration is problematic. The first book was good largely because Ravirn didn't have the power to go head-to-head with his opponents, but had to find ways around. Now his power has suddenly ballooned - he's still figuring it out, but he's facing down some serious powers and handling it. Escaping the maze was a good example - Clotho clearly expected it to hold them, it didn't even slow him down. And the final confrontation and aftermath...I hope his allies can keep his head from swelling too much. This is only the second of (so far) five books! I'll certainly read the next, after that we'll see. Interesting relationships, too - with Shara, Cerice, Cerberus, Tisiphone, Eris, and of course Melchior (though that one doesn't advance as much as the others). Next! ( )

Fun, fascinating and well written. There were some minor details I didn't like, but all in all, I'm happy with this book. ( )

Ravirn's girlfriend Cerice lost her webgoblin Shara in the events of WebMage, and Ravirn is determined to bring Shara back from the dead. All he has to do is get past Cerberus and retrieve Shara from Hades. What could possibly go wrong?

In the process, he manages to set off conflicts that establish his reputation as a cosmic-class troublemaker. There are plenty of amusing moments, a rather unsettling love triangle that could've used some more development, and a power curve for our hero that makes Anita Blake's life look positively sedate. Save this one for a time when you need some entertaining mind candy. ( )
