Kevin Hearne hugs trees, pets doggies, and rocks out to heavy metal. He also thinks tacos are a pretty nifty idea. He is the author of A Plague of Giants and the New York Times bestselling series The Iron Druid Chronicles.
"A page-turning and often laugh-out-loud-funny caper through a mix of the modern and the mythic."--Ari Marmell, author of The Warlord's Legacy "Kevin Hearne breathes new life into old myths, creating a world both eerily familiar and startlingly original."--Nicole Peeler, author of Tempest Rising "A witty new fantasy series."--Kelly Meding, author of Three Days to Dead
Hearne's follow-up to Hounded (first of the "Iron Druid Chronicles") finds Atticus O'Sullivan, the last druid-age roughly 2000 years old-trying to make peace with the local coven of witches while destroying a very dangerous coven new to town. Add invading Bacchants and Celtic goddesses up to no good, and Atticus is doing everything but having the relaxing life he longs for. A terrific entry in the series, with laugh-out-loud moments and a fast-paced story. Luke Daniels does an amazing job voicing the various characters but by far does the best characterization with Oberon, Atticus's Irish wolfhound who mentally communicates with the druid. Highly recommended for fans of Kim Harrison or Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files."-Donna Bachowski, Orange Cty. Lib. Syst., Orlando, FL (c) Copyright 2011.
