Review:Hounded

Hounded (Iron Druid Chronicles, #1)Hounded by Kevin Hearne

Mass Market Paperback, 289 pages
Published May 3rd 2011 by Del Rey


Blurb:
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.


My Review:
I love Hounded. No seriously it is fantastic. Inside this book is a progressing storyline that leave you never a dull minute, is a masterpiece.

There is enough fabulous snark that you could stir it with a stick, and moody plotting characters that pop in and out of the story all of the time.
Poor Atticus (no wealthy kick arse really) just wants some down time after two thousand years to sit back, brew at his tea shop, sell at his bookshop and hunt with his wolfhound. Is that too much for a guy to ask for, it might be when you are packing a hot sword lifted from a bygone war.

Hounded will keep you reading and enthralled in its characters. I am so happy that a book per month with be released so there is no year wait between books.
Want a great new fresh read that packs a punch, then get Hounded and you wont be left unsatisfied.
