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. Now that 21st-century magic has gone digital that makes him a very talented sorcerer. But a world of problems is about to be downloaded on Ravirn - who's just trying to pass his college midterms.
Great Aunt Atropos, one of the three Fates, decides that humans having free will is really overrated and plans to rid herself of the annoyance - by coding a spell into the Fate Core, the server that rules destiny. As a hacker, Ravirn is a big believer in free will, and when he not only refuses to debug her spell but actively opposes her, all hell breaks loose.
Even with the help of his familiar Melchior, a sexy sorceress (who's also a mean programmer), and the webgoblin underground, it's going to be a close call....

"not what i was expecting"
from the picture on the front of this book i was expecting some Dresden like story. i was pleasantly surprised when the story had nothing in common other then the main character being male and able to use magic. great story and great characters. you won't be let down
"Okay for a quick listen"
I liked this book enough. but find it lacking something in the characters.
A couple of strange setup outs also made it feel like the romance genre, such as loves scenes or describing clothes in detail.
overall worth listening to, but I think the author has some improvements still to come.
"worth a deal price"
vikas had the most annoying female voices. the concept of magic being shaped by technology is a weird twist, but not deal breaking. it has many Percy Jackson elements to it. worth the 4 bucks on sale. not sure about 15.
"Bad bad bad"
This book is so bad I won't waste time writing more than a few words about it. Bad writing, semi decent story, awful narration.
"Interesting story despite annoying narrator"
The narrator and also anything that includes a shattered meniscus and intercourse (too painful to believe anyone could be feeling frisky).
Nasal, monotonous and downright silly.
Can't see it but it would get canceled after one season.
The story started out annoying (the protagonist does really unbelievably dumb things) but then became more interesting and gradually sucked me in. Gonna read the next book in series and see if it keeps improving.
I originally read the Ravirn series in paperback format, and I have to admit the tone and pacing in the audio format are extremely good.
He definitely brings Melchior to life
