By Detra Fitch TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Jun. 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As our story opens, Ravirn is about to attempt hacking into Necessity, the computer-goddess. Why? One: Ravirn feels responsible for what has happened to Shara (once a webgoblin). Two: He wants to find out what happened to Ahllan (a webtroll and former leader of the "familiar" underground). Three: Just to see if he could. Ravirn cannot help himself. It is in his nature to attempt any hacking challenge he comes across. You see, Ravirn is now a "power" of Chaos. Raven is the name of Ravirn's soul and power. The name makes him more impulsive, sarcastic, and prone to risk-taking (like hacking Necessity). He is one face of the Trickster and is able to (painfully) shapeshift into a giant raven at will.

The result of the hacking attempt sends Ravirn, Melchior (his familiar/webgoblin), and Tisiphone (one of the three Furies and Ravirn's sometimes lover) into a totally different mythos - or reality. The trio is found by Ahllan, who has learned enough about the reality to survive. However, Chaos is not abundant here and the group's powers are vastly diminished. Even worse, it is the Norse gods present instead of the Greek. (Neither of whom believed the others were anything but myths.) Worse still, the gods have taken sides and a war is imminent.

Odin may see all and know all, but Ravirn is a wild card. Odin cannot see Ravirn's future or what would happen should he decide to simply kill Ravirn or let him live. Either choice could have Ragnarok (the end of days) happen sooner than expected. Yet on the other side of the draw battle line, Loki sees Ravirn as potential he could use. Perhaps Ragnarok could be totally avoided. If not, perhaps a split can be made so other mythos could have happier endings than they.

What should be done when divine magic alone is not enough to keep track of all creation? Why, enlist the aid of computers, of course, turning hacking and programming into required skills for Gods and Demigods alike. This is the central conceit of Kelly McCullough's series featuring Ravirn, hacker, sorcerer, descendant of Fate and nascent power of Chaos, of which MythOS is the fourth volume. This is certainly an original idea, and McCullough has managed to create some engaging and intriguing characters over the past three books (Webmage, Cybermancy and Codespell (Ace Fantasy Book)), ranging from Melchior, Ravirn's goblin cum laptop sidekick, to Eris, the Goddess of Discord with her server farm of Golden Apples. The plots have been intriguing, too, with Ravirn defending the free will of humanity against the machinations of Fate, unwittingly breaking Persephone out of the underworld with a computer virus, and having to hack Necessity, the ultimate arbiter of reality, in order to fix the virus' damage.

When MythOS opens, Ravirn is up to his old hacking tricks again, trying to break into Necessity again in search of his friend, the webtroll Ahllan, who vanished sometime before. Almost immediately, however, he finds himself catapulted into an entirely different `pantheoverse', where the Norse deities rule, along with Melchior and the fury Tisiphone, guardian of Necessity and Ravirn's current lover.
