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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kevin Hearne's sexy second Iron Druid urban fantasy (after Hounded) cranks out action and quips at a frenzied pace as Atticus O'Sullivan faces a group of nasty Nazi witches who happen to be old frenemies of his. Atticus knew that he had more dealings coming with the Tempe, Ariz. coven, but he hadn't expected to face the local witches so soon after their last fraught encounter, and he's still healing from his battle with Aenghus Óg, the Celtic god of love. He's also fending off requests to thrash gods from other pantheons now that the battle with Aenghus has boosted his reputation. Werewolves, vampires, and a group of swinging Bacchants join in as Atticus faces down two dozen evil witches and their demon pets in this fun and highly irreverent read. (June)
From the Publisher
“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
Library Journal
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
