BOOK 2 IN THE IRON DRUID CHRONICLES
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.
With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.
From the Paperback edition.
After the struggles faced in Hounded, Atticus finds himself in more trouble. He can’t seem to win for losing. Atticus finds himself stuck between two goddesses, and has to figure out what is killing people in the area. Not only are there crazy witches with a score to settle, but there are also demons roaming around.
I love the humor in these books. Even when it looks like the shit is about to hit the fan, Atticus manages to find the bright side. Or at least make things a little more enjoyable. He’s a complete smart ass unless he’s face to face with someone who could kill him. We also get to meet Coyote, who is the local god of mischief.
After the way this book ended, I can’t wait to see what happens next. This is definitely a series I can get behind.
