HOUNDED
 
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Tempe, Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time. A handsome, tattooed Irish dude, he looks like he’s about twenty-one years old—actually, he’s twenty-one centuries old and he wields a magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and now Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, and a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.
 
HEXED
 
Atticus doesn’t care much for witches, but he’s about to make nice with the local coven when suddenly the witch population in Tempe 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. But with a fallen angel feasting on local students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.
 
HAMMERED
 
Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is a blowhard and a bully, and Viking vampire Leif Helgarson has asked his friend Atticus for help taking down this Norse nightmare. As a rule, Atticus generally tries to stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. Soon, though, Atticus and Leif are off to the plane of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself.

I don't usually read 'Fantasy' genre books and had purchased this bundle on a whim. I am so glad I did! Kevin Hearne's writing pulls the reader into his story and takes them along on a great adventure. I have read all 6 of the main books and the "side stories" as well. I am looking forward the next book so I can spend more time with Atticus, Granuaile and of course Oberon!.

This Series is at the Top of My 'To Read' List! Review brought to you by OBS staff member Verushka The Iron Druid Chronicles is a series by author Kevin Hearne, and one of the very few I’ve found that has a male protagonist. I confess when I picked up this title, I was extremely tired of what has become the standard fare in the urban fantasy genre – female protagonist, clad (or almost) in leather, with a tattoo or weapon in hand on the cover, and more often than not a love interest that she may, or may not like. So, like Simon Green’s books are, this title was a breath of fresh air for me. Atticus O’Sullivan is a 2100 year old druid and the last of his kind. He lives and owns a bookstore in Arizona, the kind likely to be filled with books on Wicca, as much as Buddhism, with a side business of an apocathary where he blends teas for his customers. That some of the teas might contain some Druid-healing herbs is something he doesn’t share. All in all, you wouldn’t give him another glance if you passed him on the street, unless as the covers of these book show, you have a serious crush on Alex Pettyfer lookalikes. When the first book opens, we are introduced to Atticus, as well as the various Celtic Gods he happens to pray and interact with – Morrigan, Birghid, Bres, and the thorn in his side for the past 2100 years, Aenghus Og, the Celtic God of Love. Despite the title, Aenghus does anything but spread love. Atticus, unfortunately, is on said God’s bad side because he stole a sword Aenghus had bequeathed to a long ago Irish King. The king happened to lose said sword in a battle, and which Atticus picked up. As a result, he’s been running and hiding ever since. When the sword is capable of forcing people to tell the truth, among other nice talents, it’s worth hiding out in an effort to keep it. The first book in this series begins with Aenghus has finally decided to move against Atticus in an effort to regain the sword, for the benefit of his own dealings with other Gods. Finally tired of running, Atticus stands his ground and goes to battle with Aenghus and his minions. This is a tale of Atticus trying to weave his way through double-talk and double-crossings of his Godesses, each out for their own ends, and a witches coven he thought were his allies, after a fashion. Instead he finds them trying to manipulate him for Aenghus’ ends, and more double-crosses are revealed, the culmination of which is a battle with Aenghus, with the town’s werewolf pack at his back. Did I mention that his lawyer during the day happens to be a werewolf, and his lawyer at night happens to be a vampire? And yes, Atticus is likely to get into trouble day or night to need them. I have to confess I am restraining myself from writing: Go read this now! Go read every Iron Druid title NOW – the books are just that good, that funny and much better than so many other titles out there today. The first in the series, Hounded, is an excellent beginning, tying Atticus’ introduction to readers to the very thing that has shaped him over his lifetime – the theft of the sword, and his fight with Aenghus.

This is the first three books of the series, with a couple of stories added. This series is an interesting and original take on the urban magic user paradigm, in the vein of the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Well written with plenty of action. And a talking dog! What's not to love?

My wife and I were recommended this series as we were out to dinner and we both enjoyed all of the books. I feel that the series title should include reference to Oberon as he brings out the best in the Iron Druid Atticus. Loved how the author has his own take on the mythos behind all the powers that be. Comedy and Drama throughout all of the stories make this something that you can get caught up in and before you realize it, half the night has passed and you still need to go to work in the morning with not as much sleep as you might have liked.

I needed something to read since I had just finished the latest Dresden Files. This series came up and "recommended" or similar books so I had read a synopses of it before and it seemed interesting. Suffice to say I am more than pleased with how good the story is. It is very entertaining and if you like series similar to Dresden, I believe you would enjoy these books. Glad I gave it a chance!
