Atticus O’Sullivan is back in an all-new, action-packed, laugh-out-loud novella from the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles.
Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods.
Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword. The Morrigan has always taken extreme pleasure in pronouncing the Druid’s mortal danger and imminent doom, so the fact that she won’t reveal the purpose of their journey makes him very nervous. Of course, any time the Celtic Chooser of the Slain drops in unannounced, it’s never good. When she does let slip that she’ll be saving his life in the near future, Atticus is left to wonder...will he soon be giving his legions of enemies something to crow about?
Includes a preview of Kevin Hearne’s highly anticipated new novel in The Iron Druid Chronicles, Trapped!

"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 twenty-first century.... A snappy narrative voice...a savvy urban fantasy adventure." (Library Journal)

As recent fans of The Iron Druid Chronicles, my wife and I were happy to see this novella... and then we heard it. The story itself is great. Yet again we see gods of different pantheons running alongside each other and being truly vulnerable on Earth. Hearne did a great job in tying up some loose strings left over from "Hammered" and "Tricked". The problems comes to Luke Daniels voice and acting. I'm really not sure what happenned here, but the characters were changed by bad decisions. In the other stories in this series, Atticus has seemed to be a guy with years of experience, but youthful demeanor. In this one, Luke changed his voice and he sounded like he was an uptight jerk. Another voice change that killed me was Oberon. While Oberon has always been goofy, here he became an idiot as well. We're talking about the hound that was beating a 2000 year old druid in a word game with wise cracks and puns in "Tricked"! Oberon should not sound like a developmentally challenged version of goofy.
If not for a great story, I probably would have returned this one.
I think the story line in this sticks with the other books and does really good to give you some in site before jumping to far into the future kinda thing for the next book... However, I don't believe it was worth the money. It is really short and so not worth ten bucks.
The rest of the series are shorter than the books I'm used to, but I loved the stories. Two Ravens and One Crow is just way too short at just over 2.5 hours. I felt that this story should have been made part of another book, especially for the prices of a credit.
It might be short, but it is still a complete story.
The entire series...you need to start with Book 1
Great series, very entertaining.
I enjoyed it but it would be better if there was more story. It is supposed to be important to the next book coming out so hopefully I will see the pay off when I read the next one. I am a huge fan of this series so anything published is of interest to me. And it was nice to have something while waiting for the next book so I can't complain, I always enjoy his characters.
I have been trying to get Friends to listen / read the Series and everyone that I have been successful with has been hooked. Great Series which I hope continues!
This book is on the same level as all of the Iron Druid books. They are always exciting and fulfilling to listen to. A great mix of action, humor, and the plot is never boring. I have listened to all of the Iron Druid books and I have always been pleased.
The fight the Morrigan was in.
It is a toss up between Atticus and Oberon. I love them both!!
I do think that out of all of the Iron Druid Chronicle books so far, this one is my least favorite :(
Luke Daniels is an AMAZING narrator. Out of all of the books that I've heard on audible, he is definitely my favorite narrator so far.
Even though this has been my least favorite Iron Druid Chronicles book, I am still very much looking forward to the next one's release. I do hope that Luke Daniels will continue to narrate all of the future Iron Druid releases.
Atticus and Morgan
More of Atticus and the Morgan. We learn a little more about the Morgan and experience more attempts on the life of Atticus. Without giving away the story, I can still say that we learn more about the possible direction of the story in the future.
This is on par with Daniels's other performances.
The entire druid chronicles are amazing and fun, I highly recommend them to everyone.
The humanity of Atticus, not like romanitc humanity, the entire survivalist mode we all have humanity
I couln't inagine anyone else narrating thids series!!!
