Synopsis

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Acclaimed author Kevin Hearne makes his hardcover debut with the new novel in his epic urban fantasy series starring the unforgettable Atticus O’Sullivan.

 
For nearly two thousand years, only one Druid has walked the Earth—Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company.
 
Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy.
 
And Owen has some catching up to do.
 
Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse.
 
But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat.
 
As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time, three’s a charm.

Iron Druid - Shattered
September 17th, 2014
Like all of the Iron Druid series, it was excellent. The hero is both wise and flawed, serious but despite his great age, can enjoy being immature. The whole series is an excellent read.

Great read
July 14th, 2014
Ive read everything Iron Druid and I'm really surprised how effortlessly Mr. Hearne slips through books. The plot is so continuous! This could be episode 7 of a TV series. In this book, we jump back and forth between the perspective of three main characters, which is relatively unique to the urban fantasy genre and the characters are all distinctly different. In the past I've worried about the balance of power of the main character. He has seemed indestructible at times, for this book, my disbelief was suspended. It suggests I was more engaged with the plot than the balance of power. Well done, and I can't wait for the next book!

Another one knocked out of the park!
July 2nd, 2014
Kevin Hearne continues to capture readers with engrossing characters and storyline in the continuing adventures of Atticus, Granuaile, Oberon and now the growth of Orlaith. Great as a stand-alone story, but I would highly recommend reading the entire series!
