Spellsinger - Foster, Alan Dean

Spellsinger is book one in a series of eight books. I'd like to know how the battle against the evil plated ones turns out, but not that bad.

Jonathan Thomas Meriweather is a college student working part-time as a sanitation engineer. He's pulled into another dimension by a wizard who's in search of a real engineer. Jon-Tom doesn't manifest where expected so the first being he encounters is a talking otter. The otter takes him to the wizard who is a turtle. Eventually Jon-Tom becomes a spellsinger, which explains the title of the book, and the series. It's an interesting book, with some interesting characters, but wordy and long and I can't believe there are seven more books before the evil that Jon-Tom was transported to help fight is vanquished. And while the first book was $3, which is a reasonable price for a kindle book, the second and subsequent books are $8 each. Forget it. Not worth the price.
