The first novel in the original, six-book Iron Druid Chronicles—introducing a cool, new, funny urban fantasy heroAtticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, 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. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

"Hounded" is a perfectly adequate and entertaining book in the speculative fiction genre. While I realize that it is getting raves from most readers, I for one, found it to be a bit too much like Jim Butcher's "Harry Dresden" with a dash of C E Murphy's series. The saving grace would be that it has ...
Keeping this brief so I can catch up on other things, I posted a few quick thoughts about the book previously -- and that still covers most of my thoughts: It took no time at all for this book to grab me, and another 15 pages for me to fall in love with this. Right off the bat we get a solid action ...
