Overview

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

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hearne, a self-professed comic-book nerd, has turned his love of awesome dudes whacking mightily at evil villains into a superb urban fantasy debut. Staying alive for 2,000 years takes a great deal of cunning, and sexy super-druid Atticus O'Sullivan, currently holed up in the Arizona desert, has vexed a few VIPs along the way. High up on that list is Aenghus Óg, the Celtic god of love. It's not just that Aenghus wants his sword back—though it is a very nice magical sword—but that Atticus didn't exactly ask permission to take it. Atticus and his trusty sidekick, Irish wolfhound Oberon, make an eminently readable daring duo as they dodge Aenghus's minions and thwart his schemes with plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.

Library Journal
Though he looks 21, druid Atticus O'Sullivan measures his life in centuries rather than years and hides his true calling under a wealth of tattoos and a modern identity. His disguise, however, is not enough to protect him from a vengeful Celtic god and members of the ancient Fae. Hearne's first novel introduces a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the 21st century. VERDICT A snappy narrative voice makes this series opener a savvy urban fantasy adventure that should appeal to fans of Celtic and other mythologies.
