Yes really…Nazi witches. The Iron Druid saga continues with the excellent Hexed. I stumbled across the first in the saga and enjoyed it so much that I went straight on to part two. In this episode he switches up the featured protagonists, downplaying the entertaining werewolves somewhat, bringing in a vampire attorney and featuring good and bad witches. He also gives us less of his fabulous wolfhound, which is a pity as he was my favorite character in the first book. I also like the fact that our Druid hero actually enjoys his super powers.
It’s certainly entertaining fun, think Friends meets True Blood. There’s a marvelously wacky internal logic to the magic in the books. It’s especially entertaining that the Gods are as shallow, horny, conniving and selfish as the rest of us. Where the magical weirdness meets the secular police it gets especially fun. The scene where sex crazed demons on break from Las Vegas (where else?) run amok in a Tempe night club is just brilliant farce…if you have ever enjoyed Dorsey, Hiassen or Sharpe the mixture of sex, violence and insanity will be very familiar. Enjoy.
