Kudos for Kelly!


Here's a 4 STAR review from Romantic Times for Kelly's September release: Cybermancy, Ace (September 25, 2007, ISBN-10: 0441015382, ISBN-13: 978-0441015382 :

This is the second book in McCullough's series that fuses hacking culture with ancient gods, and it's every bit as charming, clever and readable as its predecessor. His writing style is easy, his character and his worldbuilding unique and engaging. The story will resonate with sympathetic readers.

SUMMARY: Ravirn has quite the challenge: hack into Hades, recover his girlfriend Cerise's webgoblin's soul and get out in one piece. Despite having to make a teensy-weensy promise to Persphone, things seem to go well. And then the mweb -- the magical Internet -- crashes, hard. Ravirn and Cerise are caught up in a mystery that they seem to have caused, and they must put themselves in the capable hands of Eris, Goddess of Discord, to help right both the current mess and an ancient wrong.

Sweet! I can't wait to read it. I'm so far behind in my review reading that it's almost pathetisad. :(

My Gawd! Y! FOUR STARS!!! You are so frickin' awesome! *sigh* and we can say we knew you when ...

Thanks Tate! That makes my day.

Mari, no worries, whenever you get the chance.

X, thanks! I'm seriously grinning about this one.

Want to read it want to read it. 8)

I have an RL friend whom I borrowed WebMage to who's as excited for it as me, Kelly. ;)

Kelly McCullough said...

Thanks, Ryan! I'm glad to hear both you and your friend are looking forward to Cybermancy.

That may actually be one of the stranger things about being a writer. My readers are mostly focused on Cybermancy, which is WebMage II and I'm focused on MythOS, which is WebMage IV, where I just crossed the 13k mark today. Well, I'm focused on that plus the Halifax book and Black School II.

MythOS

I love that title!

Mari, glad you like it. It was the working title of what became CodeSpell (III) but I saved it out because it's a much better title for the plot of IV.
