Iron Druid Chronicles is a urban fantasy book series by Kevin Hearne.
Like it’s author it is unbelievably likable and catchy book series!
“Kevin Hearne is a middle-aged nerd who still enjoys his comic books and old-school heavy metal. He cooks tasty omelets, hugs trees, and paints miniature army dudes. He lives with his wife, daughter, and doggies in a wee cottage.”
It is fun and fast paced story of a modern day druid and his considerably entertaining adventures. Main character is Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids. He lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old – when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old.
With two thousand years behind him he’s gathered quite a bit of enemies and slowly they all start showing up to set the record straight.
The series is full of interesting characters coming from many known and some less known mythologies all around the world.
This book series has 6 books and the seventh one Shattered is coming soon!
With the addition to the books there are two super fun novellas about Atticus: Grimoire of the Lamb and Two Ravens and One Crow that came out as ebooks.
This is one of the rare series I read together with my boyfriend – we both like it and that is no easy feat for a book to achieve.
I will mention that any book about Atticus that comes out in print is automatically on my wishlist.
Also there are certain fan products that I want to get my hands on! Like this one that describes motto of the Iron Druid:
The fun to be had for all readers of the series is amplified by fan organized events like this one!
