You know I LOVE me some Atticus and Oberon stories, but this book was just too expensive for me right now. Hopefully I will be able to winkle a copy from my husband for Valentines Day or something, but still, I totally agree with others who wonder why this book is so pricey right out of the gate. I know I've gotten others of his Iron Druid series for much less, so I was just wondering why no trade paperback?

The kindle/nook price seems to be midway between the hardcover and the paperback price. IMO, I'll be buying more paperbacks than nook book if this trend continues.(less)
Wondering about starting this series, but with 8 editions, thats a serious commitment, cause my list of books to read is big, probably just like everyone elses. Like dragons of Pern and David Eddings. Did read the city of glass, etc, series. How would this match in with that? Looking for encouragement to read.

I bought and read about 4 of them on my Nook that then died. I decided to go with the Kindle so will not be able to read those first 4 again. So I went and bought them all. In real book form. Because they are that good. How do they stack up to McCaffrey and Eddings? They are set in our world, with a lot of attention paid to almost all mythology/belief systems out there. I loved the first say, 10 of McCaffreys and the first 3 and the individual books of Eddings. So I know what you are asking. I can't say they are fantastic world building like those two authors, because one of the great things about this is its setting in approx current times. I really don't want to throw any spoilers your way, can you tell? I will tell you that the 8th book is possibly the last in this series. A lot of stuff gets wound up satisfactorily for it to be the end of this series (Please don't let it be!). Though there is lots of room for stories set in other times. It is witty, complex without being stupidly so, and has one of my favorite characters ever in it. Do yourself the favor. I didn't even take time off to read the newspaper until i finished all 8. Cuz i had to reread the beginning ones, right? Actually, I may have missed a sentence or two. Maybe i'll start at the beginning again.....(less)

I love these books, but i have one complaint vA man who's been alive 3000 years, an Irish man, mind you, a clans man, a man whose heritage is mythology that tells of driving the people before them underground, enslavers of st patrick and countless others, feels the need to lecture his readers about the evil Americans that fought Indians and had black slaves? Seriously? Just stfu and tell the story.
