Grimoire of the Lamb: An Iron Druid Chronicles Novella | [Kevin Hearne]

Grimoire of the Lamb: An Iron Druid Chronicles Novella

When he’s not vanquishing villainous gods or dodging demons, 2,000-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan can be found behind the counter of Third Eye Books and Herbs in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, literally minding his own business. But when an evil sorcerer - and amateur shoplifter - snatches an ancient Egyptian tome of black magic, The Grimoire of the Lamb, Atticus is not sheepish about pursuing him to the ends of the earth...or at least to the Land of the Pharaohs.

Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles comes a rollicking, all-new urban-fantasy adventure featuring Atticus O’Sullivan. Atticus has a history of messing with the gods, and in this original novella, he’ll have to outfox a deity at her own deadly cat-and-mouse game.

When he’s not vanquishing villainous gods or dodging demons, 2,000-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan can be found behind the counter of Third Eye Books and Herbs in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, literally minding his own business. But when an evil sorcerer - and amateur shoplifter - snatches an ancient Egyptian tome of black magic, The Grimoire of the Lamb, Atticus is not sheepish about pursuing him to the ends of the earth...or at least to the Land of the Pharaohs.

Unfortunately Atticus already has enemies in Egypt - including cat goddess Bast, who wants her own book of mischief back from the Druid. In the streets of Cairo, she sends a feline phalanx after Atticus and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon. With fur still flying, Atticus must locate the sorcerer’s secret lair - where he will face killer crocodiles, spooky sarcophagi, and an ancient evil Egyptian who’s determined to order the sacrificial lamb special tonight.

Includes a bonus recording of the short story "Clan Rathskellar"!

"Celtic mythology and an ancient Druid with modern attitude mix it up in the Arizona desert in this witty new fantasy series." (Kelly Meding, author of Three Days to Dead)

"[Atticus is] a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the 21st century.... A snappy narrative voice...a savvy urban fantasy adventure." (Library Journal, on Hounded)

    "Reads and sounds like a first writing"

    It's good but not as good or polished as his other books. It's worth a listen but you may find with a critical ear that it isn't quite as good as Hounded or Hexed.

    "Fun story, but not worth a credit"

    This is a filler story which fleshes out some characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it wasn't worth the cost. Luke Daniels does a fine job as the reader, and he is definitely in my top 10 list. It really boils down to the fact that the cost was higher than the enjoyment I got out of it. Others may feel differently.

    "way too short"
    Any additional comments?

    I've read the entire series and thoroughly enjoyed it. This story was good, but it is only two hours long. The last hour is a preview of another book in the series. I don't think that it was worth a credit. That's one person's opinion.

    Story
    "Waste of Money"

    *That* was a total waste of money. The story isn't central to the ongoing events; it takes place in the past, probably about the time of the first book. The voice of the dog is always entertaining, but that didn't make it worth almost $10. Save yourself some money and buy it on Kindle for $3. It would be a quick read; I'm guessing about an hour. Shame on you, Audible, for charging so much for it.

    "Very disappointed"
    Any additional comments?

    I have been really enjoying this series so thought I would pick up the .5 prequel. I found it very disappointing.

    The book started out well enough and then got bogged down into painfully detailed descriptions of what are supposed to be exciting chases and battles, detailed to the point of describing EVERY SINGLE SECOND. Every blow. Every "new bloom of pain." Every counter-blow. Every stagger. Every rising back up. Every counter move. Falling down again. Another pounce. Then another. Another blow. Another recovery. Plus every thought that occurs to him though the entire sequence.

    Yes, it was just as boring as what I have described here. I suspect that it would have been exciting if filmed but this sounded like a director's blocking out of every bit of action. To be fair, it was not helped by Luke Daniels matter-of-fact delivery of the chase and/or fight scenes, but I believe the main fault was with the editor. They should have advised Hearne to cut it by at LEAST half.

    The rest of the books are much better so I would advise just skipping over this one and going right to Book 1.

    I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.

    "Cute as a button"

    This is a shorter work, but it's darling. It has Oberon with Atticus, and that is a grand combination. This is the first time I've seen Atticus work with Egyptian gods, but it's very fun, light and witty. A good read.

    Story
    "I wish it was longer"
    Would you listen to Grimoire of the Lamb again? Why?

    Sure I would listen to it again. If you like the Iron Druid series it is another bit of entertaining story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The parts of the story that involve Atticus interacting Oberon are always my favorite parts.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I am used to his voice as the narration of this series. He does a good job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah, I get sucked into these, "popcorn", entertaining stories. I do it for entertainment, so I can turn my brain off and relax. Most of the time that means I listen until the story is over or I fall asleep because its 3AM.

    "Favorite Novella"

    This is my favorite novella out of any author I have read. it is fast passed and sassy. I love how the sterotype of Ancient Egypt is turned on it head too. The creativity and wit keep me laughing. I lost count of the number of times I have re-listened to this book.
