Book Description

With a sly blend of fantasy, humor, and paranormal adventure, Kevin Hearne is the trickster god of action-packed mash-ups. In The Iron Druid Chronicles, Atticus O’Sullivan is a folk hero for the twenty-first century, battling legendary beasts, shadowy mystics, and demonic demigods from around the world. Now get Hounded, Hexed, and Hammered all at once in this eBook bundle, a triple dose of mayhem straight out of Hearne’s genre-smashing imagination.
 
Includes a preview of the fourth book in the series, Tricked, as well as two bonus short stories set in the world of The Iron Druid Chronicles: “Clan Rathskeller” and the eBook exclusive “Kaibab Unbound.”
 
HOUNDED
 
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Tempe, Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time. A handsome, tattooed Irish dude, he looks like he’s about twenty-one years old—actually, he’s twenty-one centuries old and he wields a magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and now Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, and a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.
 
HEXED
 
Atticus doesn’t care much for witches, but he’s about to make nice with the local coven when suddenly the witch population in Tempe 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. But with a fallen angel feasting on local students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.
 
HAMMERED
 
Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is a blowhard and a bully, and Viking vampire Leif Helgarson has asked his friend Atticus for help taking down this Norse nightmare. As a rule, Atticus generally tries to stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. Soon, though, Atticus and Leif are off to the plane of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Iron Druid Chronicles 1-3 April 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I absolutely love this series!! The characters and world that Mr. Hearne created are strong, fun, and complex. The books are so well-written that they just draw you in and you believe. The interactions between the characters feels so genuine and sometimes had me howling with laughter! I love Oberon (Atticus' Irish Wolfhound, with whom he can speak telepathically) and the widow next door. The author has a gift with dialogue, world, and character building that will take him a long way. I will definitely read The Iron Druid Chronicles over and over again! Please pick up this series and let it captivate you, too! Great news, too! Book 4, Tricked, is due out in April 2012!!

The Iron Druid Chronicles Series: Clan Rathskeller (0.5), Kaibab Unbound (0.6), Hounded (1), Hexed (2), Hammered (3), A Test of Mettle (3.1), Tricked (4), Trapped (5), Hunted (6)

Great books but again the 3 book bundle costs more than the 3 books individually. Plus Kindle handles 3 individual books better than a bundle. Go buy them for $5.99 individually and save a few cents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like my childhood dreams came to life May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had seen these books pop up on the various YA/Supernatural book blogs I read and was always intrigued. Druids have always been one of my favorite magical beings. I used to have tons of research books on them when I was a kid and I always play a Druid in D&D or a Verbena in Mage.

I like the series so far as a whole. It's a cool world, the author has done well with mixing different types of magic and magical beings. He slowly builds more on details of the main character, well paced through all of the books.

The first one, Hounded, was a good intro to a new world. Just enough explanation that the reader doesn't get lost, but not too much that he or she is overwhelmed. I like the background characters as well, they are written interestingly. It focuses mainly on the world and religion of the Druids and the Fae (from where their magic comes from). This version of Druid I can easily see 10 year old me pretending to be as I run around though the woods of northern Wisconsin.

Hexed, the second one, expands on the world, bringing in some of the other beings that exist in this version of the world. It also brings in some more depth to some of the back ground characters, making the reader care for them more and be affect by deaths and hardships.

The short story, Clan Rathskeller, is a good glimpse at the main character's life before the big upheavals that come from this series of books. Good world building piece.

Hammered diverges and at first made me worried that I wouldn't like it, since it involves more travel and major changes in the life that has been built by the Druid. But the stories told by some of the secondary characters give a lot more back ground on the other races and continue with the great world building. I am also not thrilled with how much of the world is changing with this book. I was just starting to enjoy it.

Overall, a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's so pretty April 10, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
And not just because of Atticus O'Sullivan, the guy on the cover. For starters, the shipper did probably the best book wrapping I've ever seen. There was NO WAY this book was getting damaged before it got to me. I love reading on my iPad, and that is where I read these books - I'm still in the middle of "Hammered" - but when I really value a book I will buy it in hard cover, and this was the best of all worlds.

What these books lack in depth, they make up for with funny and likable characters. They make for a fast enjoyable read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A little too Superhero meets Superego January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have only read the first of the three, so please do not take my word on the whole set.

The story is decent at best, but for a character that has been around for over two millenium he seems easily deceived and manipulated.

Hearne's main character, Atticus, lacks the nobility and hero qualities of looking out for the little guy, as he is fine allowing regular people to perish over his involvement.

His dialogue is chocked full of pop-culture references, which can be hit or miss depending upon the circumstances.

Overall, it's ok but I am in no hurry to see how it progresses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story May 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this set last Friday, now, five days later, I have not only finished the three books in this set, but I have also polished off the fourth book, Tricked.

These stories will keep you turning the page with a heady blend of fantasy, humor and characters that are interesting to get to know.

The highest praise I can give is to say that after four books I'm still left wanting more and judging by my disappointment that the fifth book isn't yet ready highlights to me just how good this adventure has been.

So I completely recommend these books, if only so that Mr. Hearne can continue writing these great books at such a rapid pace. I know that I will be hungrily waiting for the continuing tails of the Iron Druid and his friends and trying to get everyone else to see what this is all about.

Great intro to a highly entertaining urban fantasy series - the books are lightning paced, well plotted, and outrageously funny, but also deeply introspective. Well worth reading.

Nice books and extremely cool characters (especially the dog). Enjoyed this thouroughly. Fantasy with a hint of "I-don't-care" Irish mentality.
