Oh, my dear lad, Atticus. You amuse me so. How could I have resisted reading this masterpiece when that book cover is amazing?! Hot dude with a sword, come on. I can only assume that it was probably the whole Kate Daniels fever I was on that kept me from picking it up. I wanted to keep reading about heroines and their adventures but after a few disappointments, I decided to change course and ended up with the magic of Druidry.

Atticus is the last living Druid (although I wonder if there isn't another somewhere keeping himself/herself hidden) although by the end of the book, there is a possibility that he might get an apprentice. We know that Druids were priests back in the days.. but to know that they actually really kicked ass.. damn. And I am so fecking glad to not have a refreshing cast of characters. Oberon is a joy to be around. I love his thought conversations with Atticus.

It's nice to also see the Tuatha De Danann being asses. I know they always are and their manipulative natures is clearly in this book as well. Maybe later I'll read the other books where I'll fall in love with a Fae prince. But for now, hell, Atticus is free to heal himself in my garden, if you get what I mean. HAHA.

ACTION. COMEDY. ROMANCE. Oh yeah, this book has everything.

5 STARS. Because this book deserves it and if you haven't read it, sucks for you, because you're missing out on some really great literature.
