Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In one world, theyre ordinary university students. In another world, they are a company of heroes in a place of magic and myth called Anfractus…

 

The Cree called the area Oscana, “pile of bones,” a fertile hunting ground where game abounded. The white settlers changed that to Wascana. And centuries later, it became Wascana Park, a wooded retreat in the midst of the urban sprawl of Regina.

 

For a select few, who stay in the park until midnight, the land reverts into a magical kingdom, populated by heroes and monsters. They become warriors, bards, archers, gladiators. In the city called Anfractus, they live out a real-life role playing game.

 

All harmless fun—until they find themselves in the middle of an assassination plot which threatens to upset the balance of everything.  Politics are changing, and old borders are about to disappear.  The magic of Anfractus is bleeding into the real world—an incursion far more dangerous than the students suspect. Only they know what is happening—and only they can stop it...

Synopsis:

After the fall of the goddess of justice, temple assassin Aral Kingslayer lost his purpose in life and turned to the bottle. That might have been the end of him if luck hadnt given him a few people to help him get back on his feet—notably the irresistible Baroness Maylien Dan Marchon, who once sought his aid in claiming the throne thats rightfully hers. Reluctant to resume the role of an assassin, he turned her down.

 

But now Aral has learned that one of the few people willing to help him in his darkest days has been imprisoned by Mayliens uncle, King Thauvik. Aral knows he cant let an old friend die, but the alternative is to return to the life he left years ago. It was the death of Thauviks half brother that earned Aral the name Kingslayer, and now he is thrust into a war that will see no end until he lives up to his name…

 

Synopsis:

For six years, former temple assassin Aral Kingslayer has been living as a jack of the shadow trades, picking up odd jobs on the wrong side of the law. But the past is never dead, and Aralandrsquo;s has finally caught up to him in the beautiful, dangerous form of Jax Seldansbaneandmdash;a fellow Blade and Aralandrsquo;s onetime fiancandeacute;e.

Jax claims that the forces that destroyed everything Aral once held dear are on the move again, and she needs his help to stop them. But Aral has a new life now, with a fresh identity and new responsibilities. And while he isnandrsquo;t keen on letting the past back in, the former assassin soon finds himself involved in a war that will leave him with no way out and no idea who to trustandhellip;

This is book 2 of the Ravirn series (after Webmage). Per my usual habit, I bought Webmage used; I didn't wait with Cybermancy and Codespell (book 3). Sequels are often a disappointment; this series is still strong after three books and leaves me anxiously awaiting the next installments.
A blend of mythology, technology, and criminology, this book has it all (yes, we also get romance, power, sex, and swashbuckling physical combat). All the characters have fatal flaws: but which will be the telling points in this turn of the wheel? Mccullough brings the ancient gods alive in ways that Bullfinch never managed. As the gods breathed life into mortals, the author has, at long last, breathed life into the gods -- and it's both suspenseful and funny.
In this episode, Ravirn is outcast from his ancestral house, but has been given an identity of his own: a "House of One". His lady love, Cerise, is still with him, still in the good graces of her own family, although quite jealous of the attentions some of the Higher Powers are paying him.
Oh, yeah -- the forces of the gods are now mostly on line, maintained by the "Magic Web" -- even gods have their limits of ability and attention, and six-plus-billion humans are just too much to handle personally. Someone seems to be hacking into the root code. Ravirn and Cerise are the two best-trained mWeb manipulators in existence: she's the systems analyst; he's the hacker / debugger. Their methods and abilities are sometimes complementary, sometimes at odds, and sometimes draw far too much attention from their elders and superiors.
Still, through it all, Ravirn would go through Hell for Cerise -- but will he make it back as himself?
