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"!

What the Critics Say

"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)

    Any additional comments?

    I rather enjoyed the story and Luke Daniels as Atticus however I did not like his Oberon voice. This is the first audio version of these books I have listened to. I have read all the main story line except the current (2016) novel. I know people have different takes on character voices but I always imagined Oberons voice as kind of dopey but also intelligent and much deeper, he is a big dog after all. The way Luke does it makes Oberon sound very simple, almost idiotic (in my opinion). I am not saying his voice is wrong or bad just simply not what I imagined it to be. Otherwise Luke did an amazing job voicing the other characters. His Atticus is spot on and his accents are very well done. Overall I enjoyed the book and would recommend either version (audio or print) to anyone who is a fan of the main story line.

    "Not the best, but still fun."

    Although not my favorite IDC, this story was a fun interlude. I greatly enjoy the character development and is one of the few times we really see Atticus's owl form in action. It also provided a fun preview of future characters we would soon be introduced to.

    Luke Daniels of course is a fantastic narrator and as the voice of Oberon he is second to none!

    Kevin Hearne rocks. The narrator TOTALLY rocks. His full length novels are better, but that is no insult! Enjoyed this greatly.

    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.
