Kevin Hearne

NEW YORK instances BESTSELLER • Iron Druid Atticus O’Sullivan, hero of Kevin Hearne’s epic urban myth sequence, has some extent to make—and then force right into a vampire’s heart.
while a Druid has lived for 2 thousand years like Atticus, he’s certain to run afoul of some vampires. Make that legions of them. Even his former good friend and criminal information grew to become out to be a bloodsucking backstabber. Now the toothy troublemakers—led through power-mad pain-in-the-neck Theophilus—have develop into a major challenge requiring an answer. It’s time to make a stand.
As continually, Atticus wouldn’t brain a bit backup. yet his allies have difficulties in their personal. Ornery archdruid Owen Kennedy is having a wee little bit of troll difficulty: seems if you stiff a troll, it’s now not water lower than the bridge. in the meantime, Granuaile is wanting to unfastened herself of the Norse god Loki’s mark and elude his powers of divination—a quest that might carry her face-to-face with numerous Slavic nightmares.
