The Iron Druid Chronicles #4.5 Two Ravens and One Crow

Some Iron Druid goodness before I begin the next book Trapped. Presenting The Iron Druid Chronicles #4.5 Two Ravens and One Crow by Kevin Hearne.

Here is the summary of the book:

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!

Kevin Hearne never disappoints and I think I liked Two Ravens and One Crow better than all the other novellas of the series. This short novella is the bridging gap between Tricked and Trapped. We all know what happened at the end of Tricked. This one bridges the gap and shows the time with Atticus almost off the radar. Keyword there - 'almost'. But a summons from Morrigan is not something you ignore. And it turns out that almost willingly and sometimes rather unwillingly gets himself into another promise to fight alongside the Norse Allfather against Hel's forces. And as always it almost goes downhill with another God hell bent on exacting revenge upon Atticus for the love ones he killed. Exciting as always.

Hearne included everything here and it didn't seem overbearing at all. Their is Oberon's hilarious commentary....and Atticus' 'CARNAL DESIRE' for his apprentice Granuaile.....Oberon's words not mine....and even his rich and long history with mother Earth. And not to mention the action-packed confrontation with the Goddess.......I'm officially on the road to reading Trapped now and totally excited....

"Informative, hilarious, tense, and action packed....A perfect packaged deal from Hearne....raising your CARNAL DESIRE for the next book effectively"
