Add to Wish List
Ravirn is a child of the Fates, literally. His grandmother
is Lachesis, the Greek weaver of destiny, and like
Hercules, Ravirn lives in the middle country between the
human and the immortal. He’s also a hacker whose divine
talent is find the fatal flaw in just about any program.
Since magic in the 21st century has gone digital to keep up
with the times, this makes him a better than average
sorcerer. His best friend and familiar is both a goblin
and a laptop, changing shape from one to the other to suit
the needs of the moment.
Ravirn's a bit of a shape changer too, demi-divine hacker
one minute, harried college student the next. His
grandmother has enrolled him in C-Sci at the University of
Minnesota, in hopes of turning his talents toward the good
of the family. She started him at MIT, but after a little
incident with the grades computer he had to relocate. His
great aunt Atropos has uses for him too. She thinks free
will has gotten to be too much of a good thing and wants
Ravirn's help in fixing the problem.
But as a hacker, Ravirn has a thing about free will. When
he not only refuses to help, but begins to actively oppose
her, all hell breaks loose. Ravirn has to decide which is
more important, the integrity of destiny, or his own skin.
With the free will of every living being hanging in the
balance, Ravirn is caught between Fate and its ancient
enemy Discord with both sides out to get him. Now Ravirn
and Melchior have to find a way to stop Atropos and get him
off Discord's hit list. Even with the help of his sorceress
cousin Cerice, a friendly troll, and the webgoblin
underground it's going to be a very close call.
