Spellsinger (Spellsinger #1) - Alan Dean Foster

The wizard's world. It was where beasts walked and talked as men, armed with sword and dagger. And it was where Clothahump, turtle and wizard, stretched his powers of sorcery, seeking a source to the unknown evil that threatened his land, seeking a helper from another dimension, another universe. And so Jonathon Thomas Meriweather – grad student and rock guitarist – found himself plucked from his cannabis-filled campus room in L.A. and whisked into a world of disarming beauty and savage violence.

Here Jon-Tom, Mudge the otter, the flame-haired Talea and others would form a motley fellowship with the wizard. Their mission: to travel where no warm-blooded being had been and destroy the strange new force emanating from the dreaded Greenowns. Now the peace-loving student must become a soldier and crusader, fighting with sword and song. For strumming his otherworldly duar, he is the maker of magic, his music conjuring configurations, transforming Jon into the Spellsinger!
