Druid Atticus O'Sullivan hasn't stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they've chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.

But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he's been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shapeshifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he's got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won't be fooled again. Famous last words.

Don't miss any of Kevin Hearne's phenomenal Iron Druid Chronicles novels:

I wish more than the first novel in this series were available from the library as an audiobook - the audio rendition of the first book is GREAT, especially the dog...

This entry is much, much heavier in magical theory and practical application than the previous two. Thankfully, Hearne does not get overly impressed with himself and yammer on and on for pages at a time. He does an excellent job in balancing the “instructional” parts with the action we’ve come to know and love.

This series is smart, funny, full of colourful characters (and monsters...) & well researched with its' take on cultures from around the world. Oberon remains da dawg, keeping Atticus in line in exchange for a few sausages. Highly recommend, start at the beginning to get the most from this ongoing story.

Atticus is back… Atticus is back! And just as snarky and bad-ass as he’s been before. Same sausage loving hound offering counterpoint to the human perspective, same refreshing, interesting mythology based romp. I particularly love the glossary of pronunciations in the front of the book – different language and culture every time, so far. Kevin Hearne, you are a brilliant and funny man, with an excellent appreciation of Myth. Keep writing!
