(The Iron Druid Chronicles, Bk #1)
By Kevin Hearne
Narrated by Luke Daniels
Atticus 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.

Viviana's Review:OMG! This was awesome. A smart and fast paced read! I didn't want to put it down! Author Kevin Hearne is a phenomenal story teller! As if the story couldn't get better, the awesome Luke Daniels is the narrator. He brings the characters to life and adds volumes to an already great story!!
A great mixture of folk lore and history. There is lots of action and the characters and story keep you intrigued and wanting more!
Atticus is not only street smart but also book smart. He's sarcastic and witty! There are moments in the story where I busted out laughing. Others I was waiting to see how he would survive!
If you haven't read this, I highly recommend it. ESPECIALLY in audio book if you enjoy/like/love them! Its an easy read and one that I'm loving!!
Luke rocks it! As I mentioned, he brings the characters to life. His performance is smooth and seems effortless. Almost as if he was just telling you things that have occurred to him vs. the fact that he's reading a book! Luke has a great range and gives each character their own unique voice and tone.
