Clan Rathskeller
Clan Rathskeller - Kevin Hearne I like those prequel short stories and novellas, that exist to so many urban fanatsy series. While most of them were written "after the fact", they could mostly be read without ever having read any of the novels. So they are perfect to get a feel for the series and see if one likes it: They are short, cheap and give one a far better impression of the story telling and world building capabilities of an author than any novel extract ever would.

So what could I say about this one? Well, ... it was ok. Yeah, bad word, but still. It's a little story, set some 10 month before the events of the first novel [book: Hounded] . Nothing of consequence, no major revelations er something like that. Just a small glimpse at the narrative world and it's main protagonist. It didn't enthrall me to read the novels on the spot but it didn't warn me off of either, so I'm giving at least the first two or three novels a chance.

Clan Rathskeller
Clan Rathskeller - Kevin Hearne This was a bonus short story at the end of the audibook for Grimoire of the Lamb.

Again Luke Daniels killed it with the narration! This was just a hilarious shenanigans with Atticus and Oberon involving gnomes--"No not the kind you chew up in people's yards, Oberon," elves, gods, drunk people at an outdoor mall, shape-shifting, nudity, epic drink brewing, and double crosses.

Basically Atticus and Oberon inadvertently get caught up in the middle of a double cross between the gnomes and the fae. There are elves and other supernatural beings involved, as well as a fair few drunken idiots. It's pretty humorous with a bit of excitement and action thrown in.

Kevin Hearne's writing style is so beautifully descriptive that you barely have to put effort into imagining the tale he's weaving. He has an amazing talent and I am looking forward to reading a full novel in this series. I like Atticus a lot and I think Oberon is adorable!

Clan Rathskeller (Iron Druid Chronicles, #0.5)
Clan Rathskeller - Kevin Hearne

I wanted something quick to read yesterday that I'd be able to finish before the New Year, so I hit my iPad.  This is heaps of fun in a short read (I think my iBooks said 18 pages).  Oberon is his usual witty, canine self and the story moves along beautifully.  As a bonus, it takes place during Christmas time, a happy coincidence.

 

"People used to say obvious things ironically or as a form of understatement, but in the last few decades they seem to say it with a sense of discovery, and it worries me."
