I LOVE this series - its the only books that I can think of where a secondary character is able to totally steal the show from the main character almost every time they are in a scene!


He remains Atticus'S faithful dog in this sophomore addition to the Druids series, and continues to be such an amazing piece of comedic relief that he has completely endeared himself to me much more than Atticus or any other character in the books could ever hope to do.

I mean come on a character who creates the word "fetishistically" and then uses it correctly in a sentence deserves some major praise (or at least a yummy bacon treat!)

But in an effort to gush about things other than Oberon, let me just say that this book felt a little bit like a filler book to me. The main bad guys were secondary to other plots taking place in the book and were totally thrown in at the end. I was expecting a whole different group of people to be the major bad guys in this book. Thus it was a bit hard to feel a lot of animosity towards them since I didn't even know about them for 75% of the book and therefore did not have time to truly dislike them. Otherwise this was a fantastic book. The action was intense, the dialog fantastic, and beyond hilarious at times, plus the relationships grew a bit, and we learned a lot more about Atticus.

All in all, Kevin Hearne is proving himself to be an amazing author totally worthy to be read, and I am super excited to learn that there will be another 3 books in this series.

Seriously, y'all! READ THESE BOOKS!
