Webmage by Kelly Mccullough

WebMage: Even magic has to keep up with the times. Ravirn is not your average computer geek. A child of the Fates– literally– he’s a hacker extraordinaire who can zero in on the fatal flaw in any program. Note: Currently there are no plans for further WebMage books for at least a couple of years. I really wanted to take a break from the series before I burned out on writing Ravirn. I’ve seen too many series that went on too long. But the door isn’t fully closed. If I get a good idea that I think will be fun to write there may well be more WebMage somewhere down the line. For example, I’ve been mulling over some thoughts about a Hawaiian MythOS book or at least some short stories in that setting.

"Kelly McCullough's WebMage has to be the most enjoyable science fantasy book I've read in the last four years. Its blending of magic and coding is inspired, almost as much as the portrayals of the Greek gods and their descendants. WebMage has all the qualities I look for in a book-a wonderfully subdued sense of humor, nonstop action, and romantic relie. t's a wonderful debut novel. Christopher Stasheff, author of.

I've read McCullough's "A Fallen Blade" series, and I think he's a talented writer.
This series is an amalgam of cyberpunk genre and magic under the umbrella of Greek mythos.
It's a very inventive world that he has created, and the story has some of the same formula that you find in "A Fallen Blade" series:
a savvy main character, a wry but lovable sidekick, fast paced story, etc.
However, I did have a slight trouble getting into this world compared to his previous books.
Maybe the problem is with me and not with the book though. I say this because even though I've read many cyberpunk books such as Neuromancer, Snowcrash, etc. and know Shadowrun, RPG that has both magic and technology, this is the first series that I feel thoroughly melds magic and coding (programming/hacking) in such an intricate, logical manner. In other words, the world is so unique that I had a hard time synching with it unlike other worlds that I'm familiar with. As the story moved on, I was better able to absorb the material and focus on characters and plot rather than unfamiliar jargon, and the story is well worth reading.
I read this book several weeks ago and I don't remember it too clearly since I have read so many other books in the meantime. But I will review since there isn't that many reviews on it.

I do remember enjoying the book. No, the coding talk does not bother me. I didn't have to understand it to enjoy the book. It doesn't get in the way at all. And yes, I agree it was a bit sappy with the main character being a love-sick character and all. That's what made me give it a 4 instead of 5. We could have done without that whole angle although normally I like a touch of romance but it just wasn't that well done. I really did like the story and the action. It's inventive. I like the hobglobins who can turn into laptops.

So Ravi is the great great to the n-th degree grandson of the middle Fate sister, the one who measures your thread. He discovers a plot by one of the other Fates to end human freedom because the Fates like order and freedom is just a kink in order. Also, the Goddess of Discord has already made a move to stop his great great something aunt. He was mistaken for breaking through the Fate's security and trying to mess up her plan because he was planning to stop her and was there when it happened. So now one of the Fates is after him. Along the way, he manages to kill a couple of relatives and get himself further into trouble. Now all the Fates want him dead including his own great grandmother. The Furies are after him. Lots of action. It is also a light quick read. There's not that many deep meanings and mysteries to this book.
I've read and enjoyed all the books in the series. The writing style lets the story flow long nicely and holds the readers interest. The plots arent that involved, it's the protagonist and other characters that make these books so enjoyable. The author is a techie and it shows in the writing. After first two or so books it seemed that there was some repetition in some incidents and tech aspects, but overall this and the other books in this series are worth reading. Enjoy this and you have the multiple other ones to enjoy also.
This is my second time through them and I’m enjoying them more this trip through than the last. The combination of realistic technobabble and fantasy is engaging.
This book is a treat, and I'm looking forward to a sequel!

I have read Kelly McCullough's short fiction, and was looking forward to seeing his novel. WebMage did not disappoint! The action is constant, the characters are real and accessible. This book kept me up nights - for all the right reasons.

As for the problems some readers had with the book:

I know nothing about coding except that it's based on zeros and ones. That didn't stop me from enjoying WebMage.

Also, I have loved reading Zelazney for years, but found the Amber novels too scattered. I like WebMage better.
I picked up Kelly McCullough's "Webmage" because I was looking for a different genre of science fiction/fantasy. Webmage didn't disappoint me. McCullough has created a new reality where ancient gods still exist, and they use technology to facilitate their magical endeavors. Magic still exists, and the gods and demigods use their godly versions of the internet, email, servers, urls, security, viruses, AIs, etc to simplify their application of magic. To pull this off, McCullough has intelligently applied current real world technologies to the godly realm he created. His main characters include demig-gods and AI's, and the interaction between his characters are entertaining.

An enjoyable read.
Once again, I find myself in the dubious position of purchasing a book with high hopes and being extremely disappointed. I purchased the book thinking that all of the elements were in place for a fun fantasy read. Ancient Gods, modern technology, not a torrid romance. To date, I've trudged through 75% of the book. I will force myself to finish just because I hate to leave a book completely unread. But, it's going to be a chore.

Let's see... the predominance of computer speak was off putting. Admittedly, I am not the most techno savvy person around and I probably didn't catch any computer related jokes or reference them in any meaningful way. However, I assume that the author was trying for a broader audience and in that case, the sheer amount of those references was very offputting. It added nothing to the story and in fact, detracted from it. I found it to be an extremely distracting and ultimately annoying plot device.

The main problem for me was that the plot was thin, uninteresting and predictable. There is entirely too much facile "introspection" by the college aged protagonist. To give him credit, he tries to overcome his spoiled and shallow nature.

Definitely not one of my top ten (or 200) books I've read recently.
