Hounded Kevin Hearne
Dust jacket and frontispiece by Galen Dara.
Fans of tongue-in-cheek humor, fast dialogue, and Oberon the Wolfhound will be pleased to hear Subterranean Press is publishing a limited edition of Hounded, Book One of the Iron Druid Chronicles, featuring Atticus O'Sullivan the 2,000-year-old Druid and his wolfhound Oberon in their first adventure.
Atticus O’Sullivan has been running for more than two thousand years and he’s tired of it. The Irish gods who want to kill him are after an enchanted sword he stole in a first-century battle, and when they find him managing an occult bookshop in Tempe, Arizona, the last of the ancient Druids doesn’t want to uproot his life again; he just wants everything to end one way or the other, but preferably the way in which he can continue to enjoy fish and chips.
He does have some small hope of survival: The Morrigan is on his side, and so is Brighid, First Among the Fae. His lawyer is literally a bloodsucking vampire, and he has a loyal Irish wolfhound with opinions about poodles.
But Aenghus Óg has recruited Fir Bolgs, a former king of the Tuatha Dé Danann, and a coven of witches to help bring down the Druid, and the local police are cooperating as well. On top of all that, Aenghus has a direct line to the firepower of hell. Atticus will need all the luck of the Irish and more if he’s going to stay alive.
