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? 1. Language: English.

A fast-paced fantasy prequel in the world of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, whose gripping conclusion, A Shattered Empire, released September 13th, 2016. Ten years before A Crucible of Souls... In the bustling capital city of the Mahruse Empire, Felicienne Shyrise spends her days as a talented investigator, taking on stolen goods and missing person cases and the occasional murder the city guard are too incompetent - or too lazy - to resolve. During the nights she hones her skills playing Dominion, a board game almost as complicated as life itself. She dreams of making a name for herself and becoming the richest woman in the Empire. But when she´s roped into a murky investigation by a First Adjudicator to the immortal Emperor himself, her life is thrown into disarray. Will this be the perfect opportunity to showcase her skills and make valuable connections, or will her future now be in the hands of political powers that can never be denied? Working against her will, and afraid of the consequences of refusing the commission, she uncovers evidence that points to an attempt on the Emperor´s life. Felicienne rapidly finds herself a target and must use her considerable wits to uncover the plot of an unseen enemy who always seems to be one step ahead of the game. 1. Language: English.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER For a two-thousand-year-old Druid, Atticus O´Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he´s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt-Artemis and Diana-for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is . . . run like hell. Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok-AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living-and still have a world to live in. Includes Kevin Hearne´s novella ´´Two Ravens and One Crow´´ in the back of the book Don´t miss any of Kevin Hearne´s phenomenal Iron Druid Chronicles novels: HOUNDED HEXED HAMMERED TRICKED TRAPPED HUNTED SHATTERED STAKED Praise for Kevin Hearne ´´It may be possible that Hearne and Atticus are the logical heir to Butcher and Dresden.´´?SFFWorld ´´An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology . . . [Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre.´´-Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked ´´Superb . . . eminently readable . . . plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.´´-Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Hounded Praise for Hunted ´´Hunted is the best by far! . . . Storytelling doesn´t get much better than this, folks. The author has caught lightning (pun intended) in a bottle and he keeps doing it again, and again. If you haven´t caught on to the joy that is the Iron Druid Chronicles, you should remedy that, post-haste.´´-My Bookish Ways ´´Hunted is everything you´ve come to expect from an Iron Druid book, and then some. I give Hunted [a] five out of five.´´-Roqoo Depot ´´A fun, action packed book that delivers some great sequences, and some superb narrative with some great humour.´´-The Founding Fields ´´Hunted is filled with everything I love about the series. Snark runs rampant, action is non-stop, the world building is phenomenal, and the characters are ones that you would love to sit down and have a drink with.´´-Mad Hatter Reads ´´Hunted is an adrenaline-filled read with tons of action, fantastic mythology and some real twists. The epilogue has me itching to get my hands on the next in the series.´´-Vampire Book Club
Here he is, husband and father, scruffy romantic, a shambolic scholar - a man adrift in the wake of his wife´s sudden, accidental death. And there are his two sons who like him struggle in their London apartment to face the unbearable sadness that has engulfed them. The father imagines a future of well-meaning visitors and emptiness, while the boys wander, savage and unsupervised. In this moment of violent despair they are visited by Crow - antagonist, trickster, goad, protector, therapist, and babysitter. This self-described ´´sentimental bird´´, at once wild and tender, who ´´finds humans dull except in grief´´, threatens to stay with the wounded family until they no longer need him. As weeks turn to months and the pain of loss lessens with the balm of memories, Crow´s efforts are rewarded and the little unit of three begins to recover: Dad resumes his book about the poet Ted Hughes; the boys get on with it, grow up. Part novella, part polyphonic fable, part essay on grief, Max Porter´s extraordinary debut combines compassion and bravura style to dazzling effect. Full of angular wit and profound truths, Grief Is the Thing with Feathers is a startlingly original and haunting debut by a significant new talent. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jot Davies.
