This was a pretty decent first book. I liked the humor and various references throughout. I'm not sure exactly how to feel about Atticus, yet, but he seems like an alright guy. Oberon is the best, though.

I think the main reason this series appeals to me is all of the mythology and fae popping up throughout. I love stuff like this.

I tried not to let some of the reviews I've seen about the way the female characters are depicted in this series. Most of them aren't very likable at all. I do like The Morrigan, though as she has a dark sense of humor. In a way, though, I am reminded of how all of the powerful members of the opposite sex tend to want to want to sleep with Atticus and how the guy is practically unbeatable. I was actually surprised when he had a little bit of trouble at the end, but that was due to a power drain caused by power that was not initially his own. I kind of hope that things go a bit more difficult for him in the future. He is a crafty guy, though. I have to give him that. He finds some handy ways to get himself out of danger. Though he got played by Brighid, Morrigan and Flidais pretty thoroughly.

I'll keep reading the series as really, the premise is interesting as hell. Maybe the female characters won't be quite so annoying in the future.
