This 7th book in the Iron Druid Chronicles is the first to be published in a hardcover edition. Word-of-mouth on this excellent and witty urban fantasy series has finally put Druid Atticus O’Sullivan and friends on the map. Fans of Jim Butcher, Kim Harrison and Seanan McGuire will enjoy the adventure, wit and the pantheon of heros and gods that challenge Atticus and his faithful and hilariously chatty Irish wolfhound, Oberon, from book to book.
*****Some Spoilers After the Jump******
There is a lot of back and forth between the three narrators (including the new character of Owen) and timeline overlapping in the chapters of this book that can be a little confusing at times, but the way the threads weave together towards the final battle of this book is worth the wait.
The new mystery in the final pages brings us all one step closer to the showdown with Loki, and the long, long wait until the next book.
