Overview

Atticus O’Sullivan is back in an action-packed, laugh-out-loud novella from the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles. Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but he’s about to discover that what comes around when you go around messing with gods.
 
Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon—and he must also leave his sword. The Morrigan has always taken extreme pleasure in pronouncing the Druid’s mortal danger and imminent doom, so the fact that she won’t reveal the purpose of their journey makes him very nervous. Of course, any time the Celtic Chooser of the Slain drops in unannounced, it’s never good. When she does let slip that she’ll be saving his life in the near future, Atticus is left to wonder . . . will he soon be giving his legions of enemies something to crow about?
 
Includes an excerpt from Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles novel Trapped!

This is a quick read and a nice bite to tide us over until Trapped comes out. Anyone who has followed my reviews whether on my blog, Goodreads, Amazon or B&N or in person you know how much I adore this series. Two Ravens and One Crow is a novella set six years after the events of Tricked and six years before the events of Trapped. I don’t know how much I can say about it without spoilers but I’ll give it a go. Still in Arizona Atticus is still training Granuaile while fighting a growing attraction to her. Oberon, pal that he is helps by distracting Atticus and letting him know when he is being too obvious which Atticus rewards with treats of course. Things have been quiet when the Morrigan shows up and informs Atticus he must go with her. She gives no explanation but does say that she will finally get around to repairing Atticus’s healing tattoo that was damaged in Tricked. Leaving with the Morrigan Atticus gets his tattoo fixed and then is pulled into a meeting that will shape his future.

It's been six years since the events that occurred in Tricked. Granuaile's training as a Druid has progressed nicely. Atticus has been having a hard time being seen as Granuaile's mentor to would be lover in his eyes. He's trying to keep that part of himself separate from her and uses help from Oberon to accomplish this task. Although Granuaile is beginning to suspect something is going on with Atticus and Oberon. When Morrigan comes to Atticus saying that he needs to have his Druid tattoo renewed right now. Atticus wonders what she's really up too. Atticus follows Morrigan to her home and learns several things which startle and dismay him greatly. Atticus wants nothing to do with Norse Gods/Goddesses and would like to keep being dead to them but that doesn't seem possible at the moment. What do the Norse Gods/Goddesses want with Atticus? What does Morrigan plan to do? Can Atticus trust any of them? Your answers await you in Two Ravens and One Crow.

Great book to tide you over till the next release. Morrigan is up to her old tricks. Never get enough Oberon.

Two Ravens and One Crow is a novella by Kevin Hearne that takes place in between Tricked and Trapped in his Iron Druid Chronicles series. The story is set 6 years after the events of Tricked, and has a great start. During the battles in the previous book, Atticus’ Druid tattoos were damaged, and now he has to get them repaired. This leads to a rendezvous with the Morrigan. Things get interesting from there as Atticus and the Morrigan end up at a dinner with Odin, a Norse god Atticus crippled. The dinner gets cut short as someone attempts an assassination. Overall it’s a really nice novella. It’s pretty much a micro burst of a full Iron Druid Chronicles novel. Plus the story plays a vital part in the greater storyline, making it a must read for fans of the series. Two Ravens and One Crow bridges the events between Tricked and Trapped and setups of the story that will follow. It’s definitely worth checking out.

This mini novella is a great way to help ease the wait for the next full length novel. Check this series out.

Quick read to tie you over til the nest book, but don't be expecting much. I love the series. This novella doesn't live up to the others.
ereadwithme More than 1 year ago
This quick novella starts 6years after Tricked ends and surprisingly has a lot to whet your appetite with for the next full length series entry. If you are a fan of the series this shouldn't be missed as you get up close & personal with the Morrigan and see how others view her as well.

Read it in less than an hour, but a great read. It will keep me tied over until Hearne's next book!

This is a terrific novella and it's only $2.99! Woot! What an excellent addition to the Iron Druid Chronicles. Some of Atticus's decisions from prior books are coming back to haunt him and the decisions he makes in Two Ravens and One Crow will have ramifications in later on. I missed Oberon, Atticus's meat-lovin' Irish wolfhound!!! Atticus and Oberon's back and forth always has me in stiches and while we get a little bit of that interaction, Atticus has to leave Oberon behind on this trip. However, we do learn more about the Morrigan and how Atticus comes to learn how to make Immortali-Tea (think he'll share that recipe?). I loved the quick pace, action and wit that comprised the story. If you're like me and counting the days until Trapped (Iron Druid #5) comes out in November 2012, then pick up Two Ravens and One Crow. It will help tide you over and make the wait a little more bearable.

I really enjoyed this short story with my favorite character, Atticus. There were some issues resolved with Odin, and a nice set up for the future battle that Atticus will play a role in. I love his interactions with Oberon and I can see his attraction to Granuille is growing. I'm really looking forward to the next installment in the Iron Druid Series, Trapped, due out November 27, 2012. It is just to far away. I need to send Kevin Hearne and email, begging him to WRITE FASTER!!!!.

** spoiler alert ** An outstanding entry in the Iron Druid Chronicles. It has doses of everything good: more backstory for our hero Atticus, the Morrigan's profound view of baseball, powerful and wise Norse gods, exotic settings, sexual tension, and action! This series gets better all the time!

If you have been reading the series, this novella is a must! It gives significant insight into the Morrigan. That's not to say it wouldn't be enjoyed by anyone who picked it up. Hearne's writing style allows for readers to pick up just about anywhere and enjoy the story without boring long time fans with too much back story we already know.
