Acclaimed author Kevin Hearne spins a new novel in his epic urban fantasy series starring the unforgettable Atticus O’Sullivan.
For nearly 2,000 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’ 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.

"Clever, fast paced, and a good escape." (Jason Weisberger, Boing Boing)
"[Atticus is] a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the 21st century.... A snappy narrative voice." (Library Journal, on Hounded)
"Superb...plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting." (Publishers Weekly, on Hounded)
Say something about yourself!
I love the added dimensions from more that just Atticus and Oberon!!!! Another exciting work!!! Turn and burn through the next book!
This series is very addictive and worthy of repeat listening. I just finished my 4th round from book 1 thru 7. I am highly anticipating the next release! Excellent author, story, and narrator!
Favorite character of course is Oberon the hound! :)
Also, these books do have some cussing but no sex details.
Listening to good books from around the world, in the comfort of home....
Some characters should never meet the light of day...and the Kennedy that was brought back from exile should have been left marooned on that desert island...I am through with this series,,,I am done...I am such a fool I kept on to the bitter end...no more sequels for me in the Iron Druid Chronicles after the first 2 save your credits
you can have reading! Rich characters explore all pantheons in a romping rolic featuring druids, irish wolfhounds with sausage fetishes..find it all here in this unique and imaginative series
Congrats to Kevin on his movie? deal...can't wait to see it!! ALWAYS said this would make a great series!
I stumbled across this series by accident and I am so glad I did. Shattered continued with the humor and action that I have come to expect and love. Can't wait for the next installment.
Retired teacher and interpreter. I read classic and contemporary fiction, as well as Mystery/Suspense/Horror, Fantasy&Sci-fi.
Honestly, I put off buying this newest sequel, worried that the introduction of another hound and yet another Druid signaled the downward spiral a series often gets as the author tires of his subject matter. I was therefore pleasantly surprised by this one.
There was trouble brewing for our protagonists and the build up to the finale was interesting. There's so much mythology, combined with the sly pop culture references, wordplay and the kick ass female characters and balanced view of the world...
If you've made it this far with the series, this book delivers everything you've come to expect from Kevin Hearn.
i loved this so much I didn't want it to end. I loved the characters and the storyline, but I especially loved the voices that Lukes Daniels gave to each and every character or the book. so talented! can't wait for the next book!!!
