Besieged by Kevin Hearne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is pure candy. What else can we expect out of a collection of novellas and short stories set in between the long-running Iron Druid series? Of course, we need to have some passing familiarity with the events, but for the most part, these snap right along and give us cute, sometimes, funny, and sometimes horrific scenes of an immortal druid battling demons in the wild west or taking on carnies.
Well, yeah! And running from Bast in ancient Egypt! Oops. Well, we always knew that Atticus was a dog person. Right, Oberon? Want some meat, my immortal Irish Hound? :)
There's even a short with the knock-off thundergod sporting black leather and hunting down a wizard perv. You gotta love these.
Gods and goddesses are everywhere and Atticus always makes such GOOD friends with everyone.
This is great for all of us who miss the series. Fortunately, I'm enjoying Hearne's new fantasy quite a bit, so I'm not going to cry. Too much.
