In this engagingly fast-paced romp, Atticus is a handsome and witty narrator with a knack for getting himself into trouble — and back out of it again. The worldbuilding is excellent and the existence of gods from multiple belief systems is delightful and well executed.
Atticus O’Sullivan is the last of the Druids, content to run a small occult bookshop in Arizona. He draws his power from the earth and wields a legendary sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately for Atticus, his past is catching up with him. An angry Celtic god has decided that it’s past time for Atticus to surrender the sword to its rightful owner (the angry Celtic god, naturally). Atticus has an impressive array of allies at his side: the Celtic death goddess, a possessed bartender, a werewolf pack and an Icelandic vampire. (DEL REY, May, 320 pp., $7.99)
