Publisher Comments:

“It may be possible that Hearne and Atticus are the logical heir to Butcher and Dresden.” ― SFFWorld

For a two-thousand-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt — Artemis and Diana — for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is... run like hell.

Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok — AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living — and still have a world to live in.

Don’t miss Kevin Hearne’s novella “Two Ravens and One Crow” in the back of the book.

“An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology...[Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre.” — Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked. “Superb...eminently readable...plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Hounded

About the Author

It is pretty hard to chat about this book without spoilers to the previous books. So, let me start by some generic gushing. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I nearly finished it one day. Granted, I had some horrible imported Peruvian cold and really didn’t want to accomplish much that day, but still. This book had action, tender moments, a variety of deities acting badly in a variety of deadly ways, and bare-ass shenanigans. You all know now how much I like my bare-ass shenanigans, and Kevin Hearne does not leave me disappointed on that note. I won’t say this is my favorite in the series, but I definitely appreciate how the characters have grown and continue to grow in each book.

From this point on, there will be spoilers for the series up to the end of Book 5, Trapped. Avert your eyes now if you are concerned.

So we all know that Granuaile got her Druidic tatts in Book 5. She now can tap into Earth powers. Hooray! In this book, we finally get to see things from her point of view. I would say that perhaps a quarter of the book is narrated through her eyes. I’m listening to the audio, and at first, this threw me off a little, but later I appreciated it.

Oberon’s sense of humor is a bit less in this book than in the last two, but I was OK with that. Was it Book 4 that had a little too much punniness? Anyway, I enjoyed the slightly more serious tone. After all, they are running for their lives. With a few Greek Goddesses on their heels and Loki being the demented, twisted jerk he is, the three had their hands, or paws, talons, or hooves full. At one point, Wheaton’s Law is called upon: Don’t be a dick. I wish more folks applied it to their every day lives, especially when sharing the road with me.

Dark Elves, Dwarves, the Morigan, all play a part. There is so much good stuff in this book, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Let me say that there are two big events in this book that I expect will have lasting effects on our trio of heroes. These two events pulled on my heart strings. Overall, it was another fun and intense installment in The Iron Druid Chronicles. Atticus had a very clever and interesting response to deal with the hunting Greek Goddesses. He also had to make a deal to help hold off Ragnarok just a little longer.
