What a fun book! Kevin Hearne is sure to become one of my favorite fantasy authors. This is the story of Atticus O'Sullivan, a 21(thousand) year old Iron Druid, living in Tempe. He owns a "new age" store, takes care of the lawn for an elderly, Irish whiskey drinking woman, Mrs. McDonagh, and runs in the woods & mountains hunting with his Irish Wolfhound, Oberon (after shape-shifting into a hound himself). He has a weir wolf for a daytime attorney, and a vampire for his evening work. And occasionally he entertains various Celtic goddesses & gods. Oh, and he has a healthy dislike (mistrust) for witches. Of course, being 21(thousand) years old, he has a few enemies, most notably Aengus Og...a not so lovely god of love. Atticus is protected by the Morrigan (always one of my favorites!) and occasionally by Flidais, a somewhat randy goddess of the hunt. The story that unfolds basically tells of his dealings with his arch enemy. The book introduces us to the characters, gives the reader background about Atticus, how he came to live in Arizona, and a good introduction to Celtic & Druidic lore. There is just enough background information to give the reader some understanding these legends, but not so much as to be boring to those who just want to get on with the action. (And you can always Google all the names, if you need more.) Hearne writes with a good dose of humor and also knows how to write a magical fight scene! There will be 2 more books in the series, and I need to read them.. NOW! LOL!! If you're a fantasy lover, (urban or otherwise), a Celtic lore enthusiast, or just like to read...get this book when it comes out. You'll be happy!
** spoiler alert ** 10th in Deborah Knott Series. Man is found bashed over the head, tossed off a scenic deck. Deborah's cousin's business partner's boyfriend is accussed. Deborah's "up country" gets to know the players, is run off the road by an angry kid from cout. She tells Dwight she loves him.
I did not like the ending, but lots of twists.
I am sorry this book is over. It was a book that I didn't want to put down, but I also didn't want it to end. Being from Tennessee, I can relate to the attitudes and people that Kathryn Stockett writes about. I hope she continues this storyline into the future so we can hear more about Aibleen and Minny.
