Hounded by Kevin Hearne – The Iron Druid Chronicles
Remember me saying I needed two books on that Amazon order. Hounded has also been on my recommendations from Amazon and it is the other book I used to fill my order. Let me start by saying that Hounded is a paranormal not a paranormal romance. Don’t let that keep you from reading the book. Hounded is a great story.
Kevin Hearne has created a world filled with Celtic mythology set in modern Arizona. When Atticus O’Sullivan is tells people he is 21 they think years, he means centuries. Atticus is just the first of a large cast of wonderful characters. There is a very angry Celtic god that wants a sword belonging to Atticus, a goddess of death, a vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender who shares her body with a Hindu witch and best of all is Oberon, Atticus’s Irish wolfhound, a dog that can communicate.
Filled with well-developed characters, a great story line, and fast paced action Hounded kept me reading. This is the first of a series. Books two and three, Hexed and Hammered, are on the list for my next order. Book four, Tricked, will be out in April of 2012.
