Kevin Hearne
Adult Fiction HEARNE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Hearne, a self-professed comic-book nerd, has turned his love of awesome dudes whacking mightily at evil villains into a superb urban fantasy debut. Staying alive for 2,000 years takes a great deal of cunning, and sexy super-druid Atticus O'Sullivan, currently holed up in the Arizona desert, has vexed a few VIPs along the way. High up on that list is Aenghus Og, the Celtic god of love. It's not just that Aenghus wants his sword back-though it is a very nice magical sword-but that Atticus didn't exactly ask permission to take it. Atticus and his trusty sidekick, Irish wolfhound Oberon, make an eminently readable daring duo as they dodge Aenghus's minions and thwart his schemes with plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.

From Library Journal:

Though he looks 21, druid Atticus O'Sullivan measures his life in centuries rather than years and hides his true calling under a wealth of tattoos and a modern identity. His disguise, however, is not enough to protect him from a vengeful Celtic god and members of the ancient Fae. Hearne's first novel introduces a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the 21st century. VERDICT A snappy narrative voice makes this series opener a savvy urban fantasy adventure that should appeal to fans of Celtic and other mythologies. (c) Copyright 2011.
