Overview

Ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan has had plenty of adventures during his long life, and in “The Chapel Perilous” he shares one of them with his apprentice, Granuaile. He lays out the true story of the quest for the Holy Grail, in which he was personally involved—and the events of which are quite different from the Christian tale most people know today.

While on an errand for Ogma to recover the Dagda’s Cauldron, Atticus confronts evil at a mysterious chapel, takes the first steps to becoming the Iron Druid, and learns the shocking truth about goblin fashion choices.

He was, of course, in terrible peril.

Originally published in 2013 in the Unfettered anthology edited by Shawn Speakman, now offered singly with cover art by Galen Dara.

Meet the Author

Kevin Hearne is the New York Times bestselling author of the Iron Druid Chronicles. He has been known to frolic unreservedly with dogs. He's probably frolicking right now and posing to his dog such timeless rhetorical classics as "Who's a good boy?" and "Who wants a snack?" He hugs trees, rocks out to old-school heavy metal, and still reads comic books. He lives with his wife and daughter in a wee, snug cottage.

Not quite long enough to hold you over until Shattered comes out in June, but it has zombies and the Holy Grail. Originally published in the Unfettered anthology which has many more short stories by authors you have probably heard of. Buy this!

A good story, interesting take on the Holy Grail legends. Kind of a rushed ending, could have stood a few more pages to not make if feel so rushed at the end.

Once again the deities and gods of Kevin Hearne's universe have blessed him with another fabulous story. Between his genius and the narration genius of Luke Daniels this series continues to rank very high on my must read/listen to list. This is my most favorite series on Audible to listen to. The Iron Druid universe is vast, brilliantly colorful and full of twists and turns. I've never wanted to be able to communicate with my dog as bad as I do after hearing this series. I guarantee you won't be disappointed! Harmony!

The adventures of Atticus and his faithful hound, Oberon, have entertained me mightily since the very first book, Hounded (although I’m a little less enthused with the most recent one, Shattered) and the accompanying novellas and short stories are always fun, too. The Chapel Perilous continues the tradition. The whole idea of a Holy Grail that isn’t quite the same Holy Grail we all know about is wonderful, made even more so because it’s set way back before Atticus became the Iron Druid with so much power. There’s not a lot of Oberon in this story and, since I adore him, that made me a little sad at first but then this other critter shows up that had me laughing out loud. Apple Jack is worth the story all by himself and, even if you’ve never read any of the chronicles, you can still enjoy this fellow. Is this short story as engaging as the novels? No, of course not, as it’s not possible to have much depth in such a few pages but it’s a nice fill-in between books.

As a fan of Arthurian tales, I loved this short story. It gives an alternate story for the grail that is, frankly, more believable than the current standard Arthurian legend. That alone makes it worth the read, but, of course, Hearne's story-telling style makes it all the more enjoyable!
