Book Description

Atticus O’Sullivan is back in an all-new, action-packed, laugh-out-loud novella from the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles. Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods.
 
Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon—and he must also leave his sword. The Morrigan has always taken extreme pleasure in pronouncing the Druid’s mortal danger and imminent doom, so the fact that she won’t reveal the purpose of their journey makes him very nervous. Of course, any time the Celtic Chooser of the Slain drops in unannounced, it’s never good. When she does let slip that she’ll be saving his life in the near future, Atticus is left to wonder . . . will he soon be giving his legions of enemies something to crow about?
 
Includes a preview of Kevin Hearne’s highly anticipated new novel in The Iron Druid Chronicles, Trapped!
 
Praise for Kevin Hearne and The Iron Druid Chronicles

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice intermediary novella September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
ANALYSIS: As far as the sub-genre of urban fantasy is concerned, Kevin Hearne is counted as one of its upcoming stars and the Iron Druid Chronicles is named by many to be one of the best series out there currently. With four books released, the story has been progressing at a rapid rate and the world and mythologies introduced have made the read very riveting so far. However with the fourth book TRICKED, the story concluded the first arc of the series and began a dozen year gap in which Atticus begins the Druidic initiation of his protégé.

This novella is set exactly in the middle of that initiation phase, six years have passed after the events orchestrated by Coyote. Atticus is realizing some of the difficulties involved in the training process which he did not imagine would arise. He's managing to get by with Oberon's help though, and it's absolutely hilarious to read about it, especially with Oberon's witty repartee. Their semi-idyllic training is interrupted by Morrigan's arrival, who demands that Atticus accompany her immediately. Faced with no choice, Atticus is forced to tag along and leave his sword and other precautionary measures as well. He will have to learn more about Morrigan's plan and also ferret out where she is taking him. The novella deals with the rest of the events that develop, including how a certain pantheon plans to involve Atticus in forthcoming events and what are Morrigan's ultimate plans for him.

This novella was a doozy, not only does it give the reader a fun read of about 70-odd pages, but it also reveals a secret about Atticus's past in regards to his long life. This novella though serves as a huge spoiler for events in HAMMERED and TRICKED and therefore should not be read by readers who are unfamiliar with the aforementioned books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Superfluous Story Filler October 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two Ravens and a Crow nicely moved the Iron Druid Chronicles story along, but it felt superfluous as a stand alone product. It comes with kindle purchase of Hunted so don't waste $3 on it as a stand alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seemed like a way to pad the coffers December 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wasn't a bad story, but for the money, just seemed like a way to bilk the public out of some cash for a moderate tale at best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Iron Druid 4.5 September 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Set 6 years after the events of Tricked, this is a little 90-odd page kindle-only novella, really a story of Atticus and the Morrigan dealing with old complications, and setting the scene a little for Book 5, Trapped, coming in November 2012. There is very little Oberon the wisecracking dog (although he does steal every scene he is in) and even less Granuaile. But there is method to this supposed madness of leaving out everyone's favourite sausage-loving canine and red-haired apprentice: we get to really focus on Atticus' past life, how he became the man he is, and his relationship with the Morrigan.

There a few interesting revelations, and some nice little character moments. Importantly too - and on a spoiler-free basis - some past history gets cleaned up in a more or less satisfactory and realistic fashion (given we are talking urban fantasy with gods and the Wild Hunt here).

Really, if you read and liked the Iron Druid Chronicles so far, this is worth reading: for a fistful of dollars you get an hour or so's entertainment, and a nice little look ahead at some of what will probably be relevant in book 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terribly fun! September 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As usual, Kevin delivers a mix of humor and action with Gods, magic, sex and one liners in this novella. It is a perfect bridge between the novels and I highly recommend it to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love your Druid today! December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
this book is for anyone that is into mythology, celts, living gods, and any combo of all of the above. Oh, a semester of humor and joy in talking dogs is also needed. In the series the protagonist gets to hang out or outsmart all the different pantheons, mythical creatures, etc. what more can a fantasy reader want?

3.0 out of 5 stars Two Ravens and One Crow Fills a needkl April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I overlooked this short novella as I read through the Iron Druid Chronicles. It was clear that I had missed a key plot point. This story provides that, and it is a good enough read. I'm not sure, though, why it wasn't included in one of the longer novels, in the same way that the story of his apprentice meeting the two Celtic gods was in one of the earlier volumes.

I'm not a fan of short stories or novellas. Especially when their published to bide the time between novels in a series. Regardless, Hearne makes this one very entertaining. It only made me more eager for Iron Druid 5.
