Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shapeshifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.

Was lange währt, wird endlich gut. Im April 2015 verkündete Kevin Hearne auf einer Lesung, die ich besuchte, dass er an einer High Fantasy – Trilogie schreibe. Das ist so lange her, dass ich nicht mehr so recht daran glaubte, dass er dieses Projekt verwirklichen würde, doch nun gibt es endlich konkr...
This novel is essential to pivot from the first books to the remainder of the series -- after drawing attention to himself by killing Aenghus Óg and the other shenanigans in next books, Atticus needs to disappear for a while -- but first he has a promise to Coyote to keep. When I first read this, ...
This series is great fun, but I probably liked this one the least. I think. While I generally love most stories that interweave Native American myths into the plot, I don't like the ones that rely on the protagonist being manipulated into corners by others. Which means Coyote is probably never g...
