Atticus O'Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn't care much for witches. Still, he's about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they're badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor's rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked up the wrong Druid to hex.--From back cover.

Enjoyed this second in the series. The supporting characters such as the widow with her wicked sense of humour and getting "mellow" for church services plus Oberon's predilection for chicken and apple sausages are nice touches.

Hearne's books are addictive and great fun. Definitely a must read.

Fun, solid second installment. I formally retract my initial accusation of the Iron Druid series being too derivative of Dresden Files; the snark is definitely a commonality, but Hearne's characters are OLD beings and act with a wariness that shows their age and an adaptability to the times that shows their cunning.

No comments. Another enjoyable read from this new-to-me author. Although I do find myself craving sausages more than usual… :o)

Great series of light, funny reading. The character Atticus O'Sullivan and his friends are entertaining. The story is simple. The whole package is kinda like an action-comedy movie you will watch when it comes on cable and maybe even pay to see in a theatre if you are in the mood for fluff.

Another winner from this author. This series is so much fun to read because of the wit & all the random references to everything from music lyrics & social culture to Shakespeare. There's something for all.

what a fun fast-paced romp. lots of action (it was so non-stop that i did have to actually take a break from the book occasionally to regroup). tons of humor, too, with plenty of modern day references to today's movies and culture. really smart and witty characters as well so you definitely root for them. nothing would be worse than having a 2100 year old druid and his friends make stupid mistakes that only dumb mortals would make. the heroes in this book are appropriately skilled, smart, and wise for their ages. interesting to read about ancient cultures, too. the author is apparently a fan of that stuff, too.

More good fun. Hearne balances humor and adventure with smart storytelling and makes it seem effortless. He includes a lot of mythological and historical elements without lecturing and pop culture elements without pandering. And Oberon the dog is a great bonus. It's just good fun, everything I look for in a book.
