HOUNDED by Kevin Hearne

Book 1: IRON DRUID CHRONICLES

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 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.

Teenagers?Yes
Adults?Yes

Comments: SO a disclaimer with this one. I listened to this book and since I have recommended it to A LOT of people I have come to know that the audio has influenced my rating of this book. Other's who have read it liked it but were not as enthusiastic as I am. I LOVED THIS BOOK. It was SOOOO funny. It had a bit of everything in it. I loved the idea that anything goes, what ever anyone has imagined is real and alive in some plane of existence and a Druid can travel between them. So many interesting (and some a tiny bit sacrilegious) characters make appearances in this series. The author does my exact type of humor. I just laughed my head off the whole way through. But in-between all the humor and cool characters was a druid I came to love. He is just an awesome hero. The morality of this book is questionable in parts especially for young teens. I cannot condone the morality for older readers either but I read it and I laughed. (oops!) So, unfortunately it must be put in the garbage. p.s. The real mover and shaker of this book is Oberon. I love that hound.
