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)
I have listen to Two Ravens and One Crow thrice over already. I love the way Luke Daniels reads. His voices, whether male, female or animal are all believable and true to the character.
The story, as all of Kevin Hearne's books was fun and amazing and way too short. I want more! but then that's the mark of an artist...making you want more!
While trying not to create any spoilers, I'd have to say the meeting between Atticus and the Morrigan, and Odin and Frigg.
His voices, the flow of dialog, the vocal acting. What's not to like?! Seriously, I would consider buying a book I'd never heard of because Luke Daniels was reading it.
Buy. This. Audible. Book. You won't be sorry.
This feels more like the first two chapters of the book. Left me wishing I hadn't bothered until the rest was out.

I loved the jokes, from oberon, the voice actor brings that dog alive.
When oberon says he is out of dog treats.
Oberon, by far my favorite character.
I laughed at quite a few parts.
The story of this series seems to be moving in a disturbingly more raunchy direction. Hopefully this trend does not continue.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
I wasn't impressed with this just over 2 hour short story. For one thing, Luke Daniels voicing of the Druid wasn't of the same intonation as in the first 4 books and Oberon the dog was morphing into an intelligent sentient being instead of a dog...the dog has been given more and more voice as the books progress and, frankly, it's getting a bit thick. No longer cute and funny, Oberon has become slightly annoying.
The plot was simple and slightly out of purpose.
I bought this because I'm a fan of the first 4 books but after listening to the preview of the new actual book coming out in November I sort of doubt that I'll bother to buy it.
As I suspected when first listening to this series,which in fact started out very funny and light in key, that it might not have the legs to go on for too long.
Too long might have come IMO. It's gotten old and Oberon has become the fall guy too many times, he's the Jerry Lewis to the 'Druids' Dean Martin. Slobbery dog can go away now-thank you.
The novela wasn't worth the credit I spent.
Love sci-fi books, romace books. I love to get lost into a good book.
all of Kevin Herns books
All charlen Harris books
none, he is original and really good...
Love that I tried something new, and started listening to his book. Can't wait for the next book.
Luke Daniels is amazing.
The beginning had tears rolling down my cheeks. It was so funny, both in writing and in performance.
Luke is the voice of Atticus.
I really like the humor that Kevin Hearne inputs into the story. It makes the book a really fun read.
Luke has a very easy voice to listen to and I will look for other books that he narrates!
I liked the Moragan a bit more after listening to this one. Her reaction to baseball was amusing and by the end of the scene I felt a bit sad for her. She seemed so lonely. Then she returned to her usual self. It was nice change. I also like the scene when Atticus turned into an otter in the middle of the road. I thought the book was an interesting set up for the next book.
I'm a bibliophile since early childhood. Love speculative fiction, odd premises, mystery novels that teach about different places and times.
I think most novellas suffer from being shorter than might work.
This does. It's got some lovely funny moments (falling from the sky as an otter being the best of them). I miss Oberon in this story. Atticus is much better with his sidekicks.
But it's a fairly good read. Just a little thin around the plot line.
None of that means I won't be looking for the next sequel.
