From the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles comes a rollicking, all-new urban-fantasy adventure featuring Atticus O’Sullivan. Atticus has a history of messing with the gods, and in this original novella, he’ll have to outfox a deity at her own deadly cat-and-mouse game.
When he’s not vanquishing villainous gods or dodging demons, 2,000-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan can be found behind the counter of Third Eye Books and Herbs in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, literally minding his own business. But when an evil sorcerer - and amateur shoplifter - snatches an ancient Egyptian tome of black magic, The Grimoire of the Lamb, Atticus is not sheepish about pursuing him to the ends of the earth...or at least to the Land of the Pharaohs.
Unfortunately Atticus already has enemies in Egypt - including cat goddess Bast, who wants her own book of mischief back from the Druid. In the streets of Cairo, she sends a feline phalanx after Atticus and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon. With fur still flying, Atticus must locate the sorcerer’s secret lair - where he will face killer crocodiles, spooky sarcophagi, and an ancient evil Egyptian who’s determined to order the sacrificial lamb special tonight.
Includes a bonus recording of the short story "Clan Rathskellar"!
Grimoire of the Lamb is a novella introducing us to Atticus O’Sullivan a Druid who has a puncheon for messing with the gods.
This novella was a blast! It was so much fun and a great introduction to The Iron Druid Chronicles. In a way it reminded me a little of Jim Butchers, The Dresden Series, but more light in tone with lots of action.
Atticus is a lot of fun. He’s a book collector and seller. Some of his items are rare and dangerous. He receives a call about a rare Egyptian cookbook that he stole, called The Grimoire of Lambs. He won’t sell it to just anyone and so he has the collector come to him. Things don’t go as planed and he must get the book back.
Kevin Hearne is a talented author. I was captivated from begging to end with this novella. I enjoyed the adventure we are taking on in stoping the bad guy and introducing us to the world. My favorite character is Atticus’s Irish Wolfhound, Oberon. He is just a hoot. I laughed every time he talked.
Audio: I’m so glad this novella is in audio. Luke Daniels brings Atticus and his hound, Oberon, to life. It’s a quick listen and a good glimpse into the world.
The Grimoire of the Lamb is perfect for fans of Urban Fantasy. I’m looking forward to continue my listen of The Iron Druid Chronicles.
