Kevin is the NYT bestselling author of the Iron Druid Chronicles, as well as two forthcoming series: The Seven Kennings, an epic fantasy trilogy, and Tales of Pell, a fantasy series co-authored with Delilah S. Dawson. Books 1-8 of the Iron Druid Chronicles are out now; BESIEGED, a collection of new Iron Druid stories, will be out July 11; A PLAGUE OF GIANTS, the first book of The Seven Kennings, will be out Oct. 17.

Soon! So sooooon—yea, April 3!— thou canst enjoy the final volume of the Iron Druid Chronicles! (Yes, indeed, it’s the last book of the series.) Lots of loose ends wrapped up, obviously, and lots of causes from previous books have their effects here. What I’m very happy about is how the novellas and short stories tie in—not only the stories in Besieged, but Grimoire of the Lamb and “The Chapel...

Dana Happy New Year, Kevin! I wish you and Atticus and Oberon a great year!

message 17: by Sarah

Sarah Stevens Atticus O’Sullivan is the last of the Iron Druids. As an Iron Druid he is more or less a wizard, charged with the protection of the Earth. In Hounded, Atticus and his hilarious dog Oberon (who chats with him through a telepathic link only they share) ally themselves with and oppose both gods and witches in a very action packed saga where Atticus has a knack for getting into trouble even as he is escaping it.
My favorite part of these books is the imaginative characters and the witty remarks Oberon makes.
My least favorite is that it can be so action packed . That should be a good thing but my mind starts to wander after so many battles. If I catch my mind doing that and redirect it back however, I find that I was missing out on some pretty awesome stuff.
The narrator and voice of Atticus in the audio book, Luke Daniels, is a perfect fit.
If you like fantasy battles in a Lord of The Rings style but with a humorous twist, you will adore these books. I hope someday they make a movie out of one of these books, I think it would be a hit!
Since the newest Star Wars just came out, I feel I should mention that author Kevin Hearne has also written a Star Wars book called Heir to the Jedi. I haven't read that one, but hey if thats your thing maybe you should check it out. I have however, read all the Iron Druid chronicles as far as they have been published first on kindle, have the newest on pre-order, and am re- reading them now on audible. So yeah, I'm a fan.

Michelle Hey Kevin,
So sorry to see the last Holy Taco Church newsletter. I had a great time reading them and discovering new authors. Looking forward to your next venture with good ol' Oberon, and the audio release of the next Iron Druid -- the pre-order is all I want for Christmas!!

Carmen Hello from Spain XD, thaks for the friendship, for writing the Iron Druid Chronicles and started me in Urban Fantasy!!

Neveen Badr Hello Kevin,
I just wanted to tell your books are the best and perfect books within the Urban Fantasy world; I think I shall never find an Urban Fantasy book with this perfection.
Your ruined them all but for a great cause and now I need your very own recommendations for something as half good as your books...

Thanks for writing The Iron Druid Chronicles...


Scott (Ozziespur) Hello from Australia Kevin !

I have red all your books bar the latest one in very quick time. Love them !
I read somewhere (and i could be mistaken) that you're not a fulltime author, that you work as a teacher or the like. Please stop & write more !!

Cheers mate.

Jonathan Merry Christmas!

message 11: by Alexia

Alexia Purdy Thanks for adding me!!! I'm a huge fan! :D

Stephanie Thank you for the friending me. I'm almost done with Hounded and really enjoying it. I'm looking forward on finishing it and starting the next.

Heather The Trapped cover looks amazing.

message 8: by Jess

Jess Thanks for friending me! I have been listening to the Iron Druid Chronicles on audiobook- and the mix between your sense of humor and Luke Daniels' narration is keeping me in stitches! It's been a long time since an author has made me laugh so much- so thank you! Keep up the good work!

message 7: by Mary

Mary Thanks for accepting my friend request! =)
Have a great day & Happy Reading!
Cheers, Mary

message 6: by Maren

Maren I've been reading an awful lot of urban fantasy this last year, and I wanted you to know your series is my absolute favorite. The sense of humor, literary & pop culture references, Oberon, the different pantheons all wrapped up in a tidy and exciting plot with engaging characters... oh, I can't wait for the next ones! Thank you!

message 5: by Sarah

Sarah Thanks for accepting. I'm finishing off "Hammered" as we speak. The relationship between Atticus and Oberon is possibly my favourite aspect of your books.

I hope there will be more to come.

Oh, and I'll cry like a baby if anything ever happens to Oberon.

 Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books) Hi Kevin. Thanks for accepting my friendvite. I am looking forward to reading your books. I love urban fantasy!

Heather Thanks for accepting my friend request.
