Publisher's Summary

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!

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

    "Can't wait for November!"

    With the exception of 2 other authors, I stay away from short stories written in between full length novels. They're never very good and I almost always walk away feeling hosed. They gloss over plot points and just aren't enough to satisfy. Thankfully this one was different. This was pretty good. It gives an explanation as to what happened to Odin after the last book. I was surprised that they recorded an audiobook over what was a 60-ish page short story. Surprised but not disappointed as I am going through Atticus withdrawal. They added the preview of the next book with this as well, I'd heard it before but listening to it again makes November seem like its so far away. Luke Daniels did a nice job. The first few minutes were weird because he was a little too dramatic, but it got better.

    "Just a Taste Before the Next BIG Release."

    For those of us that have been craving more of Atticus and Oberon. I would have loved to seen more of Oberon but we don't have to wait too long for the next installment in the Iron Druid Chronicles. This takes place 6 years into the future from the last book and is a good set up for the next book.

    Treat yourself with this small taste of whats to come.

    Story
    "A Little Interim Fun"

    There are only two things I would do to make this novella better: make it longer and put in more more more of Oberon ;)
    Kevin Hearne gives us lots of humor, interesting backstory , and lots of action. Luke Daniels gives us the wonderful voices we fell instantly in love with from the first time we read "Hounded".

    Whether this novella is intended as just a filler story, or it merely didn't fit into the next novel, "Trapped", it still provides the kind of fun and inexplicable god behavior Atticus has been dealing with for 2100 years. It has plenty of the Morigan--don't ask her for any favors, trust me--a very Celtic style tale regarding the origins of Eterna-Tea, and a meeting with powerful enemies that probably sets up Atticus' role in the future.

    There is too little Oberon--Note to Kevin Hearne: Next time, give us a novella of all Oberon, all of the time, with a few French poodles along the way ;P--but what we did get was classic Atticus/Oberon interaction.

    Whether as mere filler or as a bridging short story to explain background information for the next book, Kevin Hearne and Luke Daniels have paired again to give us a fun and fulfilling experience.

    "worth the price? Maybe not on audible.."

    We get a little follow up from what happens in book three. However, 16 minutes of this is yet another preview of chapter 1 for book 5. Maybe if you are a true Kevin Hearne fan like I am this is worth the 10 dollars. There may be some crucial information in this book to future story lines if Hearne decides not to recap. So, if you decide not to check this one out I will include below what basically happens.

    (SPOILER) Atticus accompanied by the Morrigan have dinner with Odin and Atticus makes a pact to serve in place of the Norse he killed for Ragnarok as well as recruit others for this war against Hell. During the meal Atticus reveals a tale about how be found the recipe for immortality. An assassination attempt on Atticus's life interrupts the meal and after a following pursuit Freyja is found to be responsible for trying to kill Atticus.

    "It was worth the price !!!!!"

    Short story set between book 4 and 5.
    In truth I Liked it 25% more than book 4.
    Let's hope book 5 will be the same quality.

    Story
    "The Morrigan Shows Her Nicer Side...."
    If you could sum up Two Ravens and One Crow in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, Adventurous and Outstanding!


    What other book might you compare Two Ravens and One Crow to and why?

    Kate Daniels series...the interrelation between various worlds, planes, and magic crashing together through thin "walls" where animals, gods and mortals literally clash.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I love the way Luke portrays both Atticus and Oberon's voices/personalities. After hearing him read the Iron Druid books I couldn't imagine any other reader doing them justice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Many parts of Two Ravens and One Crow made me laugh out loud, and again, much of that is how Luke managed to spin the content. The Morrigan's antics with Atticus were amusing in the extreme...no spoilers here but she tried very hard to play nice....


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a great continuation of the Iron Druid series and if you haven't read any of these books yet, please, begin now!

    I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.

    "I don't normally buy short stories but...."
    What made the experience of listening to Two Ravens and One Crow the most enjoyable?

    The storytelling and narraration are excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Ravens and One Crow?

    Having dinner with Odin.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    he does an excellent job throughout this series. I have heard him in other books and he always delivers a great performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It wasn't really long enough for that.


    Any additional comments?

    To paraphrase the Dos Equis Man.. I don't normally buy short stories, but when I do I prefer Kevin Hearne.

    "Kevin Hearne An Iron Druid short story,enough said"

    Kevin Hearne.....an Iron Druid short story, you're sold. Right? ;)

    Luke Daniels makes the audio version a delightful addition to your collection.
    Plus, we get to see a surprising side to The Morrigan. And of course, it is Kevin's way to set the pace for the next book .
    This is a very good short story and you will need to read it as a bridge to the 12 year jump between "Tricked' and 'Trapped'.

    I love to read and since 2011 I have been mostly listening to audiobooks because oftentimes there is nothing like a good narrator.

    Story
    "A taste of things to come!"

    I'm thinking that this novella might have made a nice, albeit a little long, Prologue to the upcoming book in the Iron Druid Chronicles. The author, rightly so in my opinion, however chose to give us the Novella insead of making us wait.

    I don't want to give away any spoilers so I'll just finish with this; if you like the Iron Druid Chronicles then you'll enjoy this title. It's an appetizer for the upcoming 5th book Trapped.

    For the record I only gave it 3 stars on the story because, being a novella, it was too short.

    "Good but not my favorite"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The byplay between Oberon and Atticus is always hilarious, and this novella is no exception, but most of the book is about Atticus and the Moragan.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The first one.


    Any additional comments?

    This fills in some backstory, but is very minimal and certainly not necessary for continuity for the series.
