Hey everybody! Rock Chick here! It's May and to start this month right, I want everyone to remember this, or give this book a chance!
I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Everyone, I give you... HOUNDED!
The first novel in an original, back-to-back three-book series The Iron Druid Chronicles--introducing a cool, new, funny urban fantasy hero
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old--when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.
Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power--plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish--to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.
THIS SHOULD BE MADE INTO A MOVIE!!!
THIS SHOULD REALLY BE MADE INTO A MOVIE!!!
I REALLY WANT TO SEE THIS IN A BIG SCREEN!!!
I really do think that this would make a great movie since it's full of action. Lots of effects can be put into it. It also doesn't hurt that the personality of the main character is utterly... awesome. ;)
By the gods Atticus! You are one seriously hot, badass and SUPER SMART druid!!! This book made me squeal with delight, fist pump with my sister (after Atticus beat the bad guys) and hug our dog wishing he could also talk like Oberon. I love every word here. No time wasted. Atticus is very very hilarious and I think, he passed that to his dog/friend, Oberon too. I love how Atticus thinks. He's always either very smart, one step ahead his enemies or sarcastic in a really funny way. I like it that his character was built to withstand gods and goddesses. I love it that he stands up for what he vowed for and what he believed in. This novel couldn't have been more perfect when it comes to the plot.
The author to me, is a real genius. The mixture of paranormal beings here is just... amazing!
I think I have a new favorite now, sorry... Harry Potter. Atticus' powers are just more entertaining than yours. ;p
Anyway... I would love to steal Oberon from you, Atticus. But I figured, you'll miss him... so maybe next time.
ON TO THE NEXT BOOK, I MARCH! hahaha
