Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.
With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.
I liked the audio version of the first entry in this series enough to rank it as one of my best reads/listens of 2015 so I’m planning to return to the chronicles every few audiobooks.
Having set up the main characters in the first book, this sequel, set almost directly after the events of the last, hits the ground running. Hopefully, it keeps this speed up. The narration, just like in the last, is great, full of character and animation and provides a comfortable familiarity.
It’s been a neat ride so far and I can only hope it continues this way.
