Atticus O’Sullivan looks a youthful 21, with blond hair, charming grin, and a trace of surfer dude attitude. Atticus enjoys the sunshine of Tempe, Arizona, has a close connection with nature, and enjoys hunting with his Irish Wolfhound Oberon. He owns his own business and has a relaxed, carefree life.
Atticus is the last of the Druids; he’s made it 2,000 years by keeping a low profile and communing with nature.
So far Atticus has managed to stay far ahead and hidden from a crazy Celtic god, but his luck is about to change. Aenghas Og has found Atticus and wants his sword, Fragarach, back. This time he won’t quit until he has beaten Atticus, even if it includes unleashing a few demons to get his way.
There are other magical beings in this world, including many from Celtic mythology. The author adds the requisite vampires, werewolves, witches, and fairies to flesh out Atticus’ story, but they aren’t the main focus.
Hearne weaves old mythology, popular references, puns, and witty repartee to create a funny, action-filled story. If you enjoy urban fantasy but have been looking for something that feels fresh and different, while also providing a sense of comfort familiarity, this is the book to pick up.
Prepare to put your feet up for a few hours of laughs, action, and a refreshing new perspective of a modern magical world.
