Summary:

Atticus O'Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he's twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he's hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power - plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish - to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil. "Kevin Hearne breathes new life into old myths, creating a world both eerily familiar and startlingly original." -NICOLE PEELER, author of Tempest Rising

    Enjoyable. Looking foreword to listening to the rest of the series. The narrator did a great job.

  • Amy Stewart-Breitkreutz

    Fantastic, a wonderful mix of sarcasm and serious content. Atticus is a character that people can relate to and Hearne uses that to draw you into the story. The added humour and action keeps you listening(or reading). The narrator does a spectacular job giving life to each of the characters and developing their individual personalities.

  • Spencer Lewis

    This book was definitely entertaining: a good mix of comedy and action. I appreciated the accurate references (albeit with a modern twist) to multiple deities listed thoughout and it was apparent that some research went into this story. My only gripe was that the character development was a bit weak. This can be difficult given how many there are in this book, but even the protagonist and main character, Atticus, needed a bit more work. Still an enjoyable book and I'll likely continue on with the series.

    This is a bit shorter than the others like it (e.g. Dresden Files) but was very entertaining. Good narration.

  • Rachelle Jensen

    The book was original and artfully combines all the deities into a suspenseful (and rather comical) story. I was entertained and interested every step of the way. The real gem though is the narrator- he is wonderful at voices and accents!

  • John True

    Loved it! I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. If you like The Dresden Files then I think you will like this series. Great narration too
