When he’s not vanquishing villainous gods or dodging demons, two-thousand-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan can be found behind the counter of Third Eye Books and Herbs in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, literally minding his own business. But when an evil sorcerer—and amateur shoplifter—snatches an ancient Egyptian tome of black magic, The Grimoire of the Lamb, Atticus is not sheepish about pursuing him to the ends of the earth . . . or at least to the Land of the Pharaohs.
Unfortunatel,y Atticus already has enemies in Egypt—including cat goddess Bast, who wants her own book of mischief back from the Druid. In the streets of Cairo, she sends a feline phalanx after Atticus and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon. With fur still flying, Atticus must locate the sorcerer’s secret lair—where he will face killer crocodiles, spooky sarcophagi, and an ancient evil Egyptian who’s determined to order the sacrificial lamb special tonight.

Events are fast paced and the story is excellent; my only complaint is the graphic consequence...
Rating: 3.6* of fiveThe Publisher Says: There's nothing like an impromptu holiday to explore the birthplace of modern civilization, but when Atticus and Oberon pursue a book-stealing Egyptian wizard - with a penchant for lamb - to the land of the pharaohs, they find themselves in hot, crocodile-infe...
Atticus heads to Egypt with Oberon for an adventure filled with ancient gods and mysteries. I love his interaction with the tales of long ago. His interaction with one catty god is purrfect.
Writing: 3Story/Plot: 3Depth/Detail: 2Enjoyment: 3Another quick novella in the Iron Druid universe. I enjoy episodic novellas - quick, dirty, and nice little adventures are fun and enjoyable. I REALLY enjoy Peter V. Brett's episodic novellas from Arlen's travels as a messenger, for example. But as w...
