Hounded by Kevin Hearne

Although this first instalment to The Iron Druid Chronicles was reviewed by Laura a while ago, I decided to give Hounded by Kevin Hearne a try for myself.

This Druid is currently known as Atticus O’Sullivan, who appears to be eternally twenty-one and has specifically chosen this area to be free from fae and godly interruptions. There is one particular Celtic God…

I love the Mercy Thompson series. Night Broken might be the book eight, but the writing is still crisp, the action thrilling and even though Mercy is now married, the romance is as engaging as it’s ever been.

Don’t be deceived by the woman on the cover though, we’re led through this tale of murder, mystery and romance by a distinctly male voice. It’s a great start to the…

He repeatedly keeps secrets from her, and in her line of work she needs to know every intricate detail of a case to close it. This time around, when the killings continue to rise, she…
