Kevin Hearne könyvei a rukkolán


Kevin Hearne - Grimoire ​of the Lamb
_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 eBook 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, two-thousand-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 preview of Kevin Hearne’s highly anticipated new novel in The Iron Druid Chronicles, Hunted!_ _Praise for Kevin Hearne and The Iron Druid Chronicles_ “Celtic mythology and an ancient Druid with modern attitude mix it up in the Arizona desert in this witty new fantasy series.”—Kelly Meding, author of Three Days to Dead “[Atticus is] a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the twenty-first century. . . . A snappy narrative voice . . . a savvy urban fantasy adventure.”—Library Journal, on Hounded

Kevin Hearne - Tricked ​- Átverve
Az ​eddigi legjobb átverésem az volt, amikor láttam magam meghalni. „Kevin Hearne remek történetmesélő, csípős humorral megáldva. Az Amerikai istenek találkozása a Dresden-aktákkal.” Atticus O’Sullivan, az utolsó druida nem maradt volna életben a kelta ravaszság nélkül kétezer évig. Így amikor a bosszúálló norvég istenek végezni akarnak vele, a még ravaszabb navahó isten, Prérifarkas segítségével elhiteti velük, hogy sikerült megölniük, felaprították az arizonai sivatag kellős közepén. De a trükkös Prérifarkas nem osztogatja ingyen a segítségét. Mire kettőt pislogna, Atticus vérszomjas, sivatagi alakváltókkal találja magát szemközt, amiket a navahók bőrcserélőknek hívnak. Amikor a druida már azt hiszi, hogy kézben tartja a dolgokat, csúnyán elárulja valaki, akiről soha nem hitte volna. Atticus elhatározza, hogy ha ezt túléli, soha többet nem hagyja magát átverni. Milyen szép utolsó szavak! „Atticus egy erős, modern hős, aki mögött nagy múlt áll, és elég ravasz ahhoz, hogy életben maradjon a huszonegyedik században is. Csípős humorral átszőtt elbeszélés… egy vérbeli, kalandos urban fantasy.” _(Library Journal)_

Kevin Hearne - The ​Squirrel on the Train
Oberon ​the Irish wolfhound is off to Portland to smell all the things with canine companions wolfhound Orlaith and Boston terrier Starbuck, and, of course, his human, ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan. The first complication is an unmistakable sign of sinister agendas afoot: a squirrel atop the train. But an even more ominous situation is in store when the trio plus Atticus stumble across a murder upon arrival at the station. They recognize Detective Gabriela Ibarra, who’s there to investigate. But they also recognize the body—or rather that the body is a doppelganger for Atticus himself. The police, hampered by human senses of smell and a decided lack of canine intuition, obviously can’t handle this alone. Not with Atticus likely in danger. Oberon knows it’s time to investigate once more—for justice! For gravy! And possibly greasy tacos! Alongside his faithful Druid, Oberon and the other loyal hounds navigate by nose through Portland to find a bear-shifter friend with intel, delicious clues at the victim’s home, and more squirrels. Always more squirrels! But will our hungry band of heroes be able to identify the culprit before someone else is murdered? Will there be mystery meat in gravy as a reward or tragedy in store for the world’s (or at least the Pacific Northwest’s) greatest dog detective? Like its predecessor _The Purloined Poodle_, the latest of Oberon’s Meaty Mysteries, _The Squirrel on the Train_, is not to be missed by fans of Kevin Hearne’s New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series.

Kevin Hearne - Raz ​wiedźmie śmierć
Druga ​księga trzytomowej serii o Atticusie O’Sullivanie. 2100-letni Atticus O’Sullivan, ostatni z druidów, odkrywa, że po zabiciu pewnego celtyckiego boga (zajrzyj do pierwszego tomu serii, Na psa urok) stał się niespodziewanie popularny.

Oto do jego drzwi puka Kojot, indiański bóg-oszust, i żąda, by druid unicestwił demona polującego na ludzi w okolicy.

A na dodatek na życie druida i jego przyjaciół dybią diaboliczne nazistowskie wiedźmy, polujące też na atrakcyjny polski sabat pod wodzą Maliny… I po czyjej stronie stanie rosyjski rabin, upadły anioł z piątego kręgu piekła Dantego?

Kevin Hearne - Delilah S. Dawson - Chuck Wendig - Three ​Slices

Kevin Hearne - Hounded ​- Üldöztetve
Atticus ​O’Sullivan, a druidák utolsó képviselője, békésen éldegél Arizonában, és egy ezoterikus könyvesboltot vezet. Szabadidejében pedig alakot vált, hogy ír farkaskutyájával vadászatra induljon. Szomszédai és vásárlói abban a hiszemben élnek, hogy ez a helyes, tetovált, ír srác egy nappal sem több huszonegy évesnél – pedig éppen huszonegy _évszázada_ él a földön. Azt már ne is említsük, hogy energiáját a földből nyeri, éles nyelve van, és egy még élesebb varázskardja: Fragarach, a Válaszadó. Csak az a probléma, hogy egy fölöttébb dühös kelta isten is szemet vetett a kardjára, és évszázadok óta üldözi érte. Ez a kitartó istenség Atticus nyomára lelt, és barátunknak minden erejére – továbbá egy csábító halálistennő segítségére, vámpír és vérfarkas ügyvédeinek falkájára, egy szexi csaposlányra (akinek fejét egy hindi boszorkány bérelte ki), és egy adag régimódi, ír szerencsére is – szüksége lesz, hogy szétrúgjon néhány kelta ülepet, és megszabadítsa magát a gonosztól… _"Kevin Hearne új lelket lehel az ősi mitológiába, és egy hátborzongatóan ismerős, mégis ijesztően eredeti világot alkot." - Nicole Peeler, a Tempest Rising írója

Kevin Hearne - Hammered ​- Elkalapálva
A ​norvég mennydörgésisten rosszabb minden kötekedő rohadéknál - ő ugyanis életek ezreit tette tönkre, és ugyanennyi ártatlannal végzett. A viking vámpír, Leif Helgarson több évszázad után elérkezettnek látja az időt, hogy bosszút álljon rajta, de a norvég lidércnyomásba csak barátja, Atticus O'Sullivan, az utolsó druida segítségével juthat el. Atticus első számú túlélési stratégiája a következő volt: a lehető legnagyobb ívben kerüld el a villámokat dobáló ürgét!. De Atticus hazai pályáján sem túl rózsás a helyzet: vámpírháború közeleg, a magukat Isten Kalapácsainak nevező orosz démonvadászok pedig egyre többen lesznek. Atticus és Leif egy vérfarkas társaságában minden figyelmeztetés és várható következmény ellenére elindulnak Asgardba, a norvég panteon síkjára, ahol kommandójuk kiegészül egy varázslóval, egy orosz mennydörgésistennel és egy kínai vándorral. És megindul a felejthetetlen harc a valkűrök, a feldühödött istenek és a mennydörgésisten ellen.

Kevin Hearne - Hammered
Thor, ​the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully—he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare. One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. Plus things are heating up in his home base of Tempe, Arizona. There’s a vampire turf war brewing, and Russian demon hunters who call themselves the Hammers of God are running rampant. Despite multiple warnings and portents of dire consequences, Atticus and Leif journey to the Norse plane of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry Norse gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself.

Kevin Hearne - Hounded
Atticus ​O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a sexy bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

Kevin Hearne - Staked
When ​a druid has lived for two thousand years like Atticus, he’s bound to run afoul of a few vampires. Make that legions of them. Even his former friend and legal counsel turned out to be a bloodsucking backstabber. Now the toothy troublemakers—led by power-mad pain-in-the-neck Theophilus—have become a huge problem requiring a solution. It’s time to make a stand. As always, Atticus wouldn’t mind a little backup. But his allies have problems of their own. Ornery archdruid Owen Kennedy is having a wee bit of troll trouble: Turns out when you stiff a troll, it’s not water under the bridge. Meanwhile, Granuaile is desperate to free herself of the Norse god Loki’s mark and elude his powers of divination—a quest that will bring her face-to-face with several Slavic nightmares. As Atticus globetrots to stop his nemesis Theophilus, the journey leads to Rome. What better place to end an immortal than the Eternal City? But poetic justice won’t come without a price: In order to defeat Theophilus, Atticus may have to lose an old friend.

Kevin Hearne - Kijem ​i mieczem
Piąta ​księga cyklu KRONIKI ŻELAZNEGO DRUIDA – serii o Atticusie O’Sullivanie, ostatnim driudzie i najśmieszniejszym, najbardziej zwariowanym i najbardziej zapadającym w pamięć bohaterze urban fantasy od czasów Harry’ego Dresdena! Po dwunastu latach nauki Granuaile jest wreszcie gotowa, by podwoić światową populację druidów. Wystarczy tylko, że Atticus splecie ją z ziemią… Tymczasem jednak, choć jedni bogowie już szykują z tej okazji cenne podarunki i uczty, inni nie cofną się przed niczym, by druidzi stali się gatunkiem wymarłym. I tak Atticus, Oberon i Granuaile lądują, chcąc nie chcąc, u podnóża góry Olimp, po czym z przerażeniem stwierdzają, że wrogowie zmienili się nie wiadomo kiedy w wymagających przyjaciół, nie wszystkie psy są kochane, nie wszystkie wiewiórki bezużyteczne, bywają koty współpracujące z psami, krasnoludy lepiej, żeby nie goliły brody, a klauny nie chodziły do sklepów sportowych. Czas na walkę kijem i mieczem. Kevin Hearne urodził się w Arizonie. Uczy angielskiego, a kiedy nie sprawdza stosów prac domowych i nie pisze powieści, hoduje bazylię i maluje pejzaże z córką. Ponadto lubi robić piesze wycieczki, czytać komiksy i mieszkać sobie z rodziną w tycim, acz przytulnym domku.

Kevin Hearne - Hexed
Atticus ​O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to “make nice” with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial non-aggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. The new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of WWII. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch-hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.

Kevin Hearne - Hunted
“It ​may be possible that Hearne and Atticus are the logical heir to Butcher and Dresden.”―SFFWorld 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.

Kevin Hearne - Shattered
For ​nearly two thousand years, there was only one Druid left walking the Earth—Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword kept him alive while pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do. Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse. But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat. As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time . . . three’s a charm.

Kevin Hearne - Tricked
Druid ​Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shapeshifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.

Kevin Hearne - Getrickst
Atticus ​O’Sullivan steht auf der Abschussliste sämtlicher Donnergötter. Um ihrer Rache zu entkommen, lässt sich der Druide auf einen Deal mit Coyote ein, dem Trickstergott der Navajo. Als Gegenleistung erwartet dieser auch bloß einen klitzekleinen Gefallen – Ehrenwort. Coyote hilft Atticus, den eigenen Tod vorzutäuschen und danach unter zutauchen. Es dauert nicht lange, bis Atticus begreift, dass der trickreiche Gott ihn übers Ohr gehauen hat. Statt mit seiner Auszubildenden Granuaile und seinem Hund Oberon die neugewonnene Freiheit genießen zu können, ist er nun dazu verdammt, blutrünstige Gestaltwandler in Colorado zu bekämpfen. Falls Atticus je wieder lebend aus dieser Sache herauskommt, schwört er, sich nie wieder austricksen zu lassen. Aber von überall droht Verrat – auch aus den eigenen Reihen.

Kevin Hearne - First ​Dangle and Other Stories
Owen ​and his sloth, Slomo, are off to see the world when Coriander, Herald Extraordinary of the First among the Fae, interrupts to ask for the tiny favor of solving a supernatural murder. That sets the pair off on a trail that leads from Granada, Spain, to London, England and then to Austin, Texas. Owen and Slomo will have to outwit an Irish goddess of wisdom, some nasty spriggans, and streak across the Kew Gardens to find the culprit. They're going to see the world after all—just not the way they thought. This collection also includes other Iron Druid stories. "The Naughtiest Cherub" is narrated by Loki and takes place directly before the events of Scourged, book 9. "The Waters" is narrated by Granuaile and takes place after the events of Scourged. And "Friendly Emily" is a piece of science fiction that appeared in Fireside magazine. The audiobook edition will also include a recording of "The Chapel Perilous" recorded by Luke Daniels for the first time; that story is sold separately in ebook.

Kevin Hearne - Zbrodnia ​i kojot
Kolejny ​tom przygód druida w wielkim mieście. Druid Atticus O'Sullivan nie przeżyłby dwóch tysiącleci, gdyby nie jego celtycki spryt. Toteż kiedy bogowie piorunów szukają zemsty, Atticus – z pomocą indiańskiego boga oszustw Kojota – postanawia dać im się poćwiartować na arizońskiej pustyni. Upozorowanie śmierci wydaje się wielkim sukcesem. Lecz Kojot jest kuty na cztery łapy i Atticus odkrywa nagle, że został uwikłany w walkę z krwiożerczymi, pustynnymi, zmiennokształtnymi istotami, które Nawahowie nazywają skórokształtnymi. Właśnie kiedy druidowi zaczyna się wydawać, że rozgryzł już swojego dwulicowego znajomego, zdrada nadchodzi z zupełnie nieoczekiwanej strony. Atticus poprzysięga sobie, że jeśli uda mu się to przeżyć, nigdy nie da się więcej oszukać. Doskonałe ostatnie słowa…

Kevin Hearne - Chuck Wendig - Lila Bowen - Death ​& Honey
Death ​& Honey contains three novellas by New York Times bestsellers Delilah S. Dawson, Kevin Hearne, and Chuck Wendig. Each of the stories features a full-color, full-page illustration by Galen Dara, who also contributed the cover and a full-color frontispiece. In _The Buzz Kill by Kevin Hearne_, Oberon the Irish wolfhound and Starbuck the Boston Terrier sink their teeth into a new Meaty Mystery when they discover a body underneath a beehive in Tasmania. It's been badly stung, but the bees aren't at fault: This is homicide. The hounds recruit the help of their Druid, Atticus O'Sullivan, and the Tasmanian police to track down the killer in the interest of a reward—but this time, they want more than food and justice. _Grist of Bees, by Delilah S. Dawson_ writing as Lila Bowen, follows Rhett Walker, who has given up his destiny as the monster-hunting Shadow to settle down with his beloved Sam. But when the call to action grows too strong, Rhett saddles up to follow a peculiar bee into the unforgiving desert. The bee leads him to a weeping mother in a strangely prosperous valley, and Rhett has no choice but to hunt the creature that's stolen her child—even if it destroys a land of milk and honey. _Interlude: Tanager by Chuck Wendig_ returns us to the world of Miriam Black. Lauren “Wren” Martin is a young psychic woman who can see the stained souls of killers; it is her gift, or as she sees it, her curse. And up until now, it has been her mission to kill those killers, to remove them from the pattern so that they may not murder again. But now, after a death that may not have been deserved, she's left rudderless, without plan or purpose, until a woman with a strange power of her own takes her in and gives her a new mission—and a new target.

Kevin Hearne - Kronika ​wykrakanej śmierci
Szósta ​księga cyklu „Kroniki Żelaznego Druida” – serii o Atticusie O’Sullivanie, ostatnim driudzie i najśmieszniejszym, najbardziej zwariowanym i najbardziej zapadającym w pamięć bohaterze urban fantasy od czasów Harry’ego Dresdena! Jak na dwutysiącletniego druida Atticus O’Sullivan całkiem szybko biega. I dobrze się składa, bo musi właśnie uciekać nie przed jedną, ale przed dwiema boginiami łowów – Artemidą i Dianą, wspomaganymi przez Olimpijczyków. Umykając przed ich ostrzałem, Atticus, Granuaile i wilczarz Oberon pędzą jak szaleni od Rumunii przez Polskę po Francję, by prosić o pomoc przyjaciela Tuatha Dé Danann. Zamiast jak dotychczas grać z bogami w chowanego pozostaje im grać w… wiej ile sił w nogach. Cały ten radosny maraton panteonów psuje nordycki bóg Loki. Wystarczy przecież, że zabije w końcu tego uprzykrzonego druida, a będzie mógł rozpętać wreszcie swoją małą apokalipsę – Ragnarök….

Kevin Hearne - Delilah S. Dawson - No ​Country for Old Gnomes
Go ​big or go gnome. The New York Times bestselling authors of Kill the Farm Boy return to the world of Pell, the irreverent fantasy universe that recalls Monty Python and Terry Pratchett. The Skyr is a rich, verdant land claimed by both halflings and gnomes. For centuries, the halflings have worked to undermine gnomish power structures and seize total control--through legal means, certainly, but more insidiously through their extensive organized crime network. Now, threatened with being pushed out entirely, the gnomes are desperate and ready to fight back. Gustave the Goat King faces his first test as a leader: Can he bring peace to a fraught region or will a civil war consume the entire kingdom?

Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge—but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief, who all seem to have KILL THE DRUID at the top of their to-do lists.

W nowym cyklu utalentowany pisarz tworzy własną mitologię, w której nie zabraknie zmiennokształtnych bardów, walczących ogniem olbrzymów i nastolatków rozmawiających z oszałamiającymi stworzeniami.

Delilah S. Dawson - Kevin Hearne - The ​Princess Beard
Shave ​the princess? Inconceivable! The hilarious bestselling authors of Kill the Farm Boy and No Country for Old Gnomes are back with a new adventure in the irreverent world of Pell. Once upon a time, a princess slept in a magical tower cloaked in thorns and roses. When she woke, she found no Prince Charming, only a surfeit of hair and grotesquely long fingernails--which was, honestly, better than some creep who acted without consent. She cut off her long braids and used them to escape. But she kept the beard because it made a great disguise. This is not a story about finding true love's kiss--it's a story about finding yourself. On a pirate ship. Where you belong. But these are no ordinary pirates aboard The Puffy Peach, serving under Filthy Lucre, the one-eyed parrot pirate captain. First there's Vic, a swole and misogynistic centaur on a mission to expunge himself of the magic that causes him to conjure tea and dainty cupcakes in response to stress. Then there's Tempest, who's determined to become the first dryad lawyer--preferably before she takes her ultimate form as a man-eating tree. They're joined by Alobartalus, an awkward and unelfly elf who longs to meet his hero, the Sn'archivist who is said to take dictation directly from the gods of Pell. Throw in some mystery meat and a dastardly capitalist plot, and you've got one Pell of an adventure on the high seas! In this new escapade set in the magical land of Pell, Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne lovingly skewer the tropes of fairy tales and create a new kind of fantasy: generous, gently humorous, and inclusive. There might also be otters.

Kevin Hearne - Two ​Ravens and One Crow
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!

Szalona mieszanka mitów i współczesności, bohater obdadrzony ciętym dowcipem, niespodziewane zwroty akcji - to dość, by rozchichotany czytelnik przeczytał powieść jednym tchem.

Kevin Hearne - The ​Chapel Perilous
Ancient ​Druid Atticus O’Sullivan has had plenty of adventures during his long life, and in “The Chapel Perilous” he shares one of them with his apprentice, Granuaile. He lays out the true story of the quest for the Holy Grail, in which he was personally involved—and the events of which are quite different from the Christian tale most people know today. While on an errand for Ogma to recover the Dagda’s Cauldron, Atticus confronts evil at a mysterious chapel, takes the first steps to becoming the Iron Druid, and learns the shocking truth about goblin fashion choices. He was, of course, in terrible peril. Originally published in 2013 in the Unfettered anthology edited by Shawn Speakman, now offered singly with cover art by Galen Dara.

Kevin Hearne - Delilah S. Dawson - Kill ​the Farm Boy
In ​an irreverent new series in the tradition of Terry Pratchett novels and The Princess Bride, the New York Times bestselling authors of the Iron Druid Chronicles and Star Wars: Phasma reinvent fantasy, fairy tales, and floridly written feast scenes. Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, a hero, the Chosen One, was born . . . and so begins every fairy tale ever told. This is not that fairy tale. There is a Chosen One, but he is unlike any One who has ever been Chosened. And there is a faraway kingdom, but you have never been to a magical world quite like the land of Pell. There, a plucky farm boy will find more than he's bargained for on his quest to awaken the sleeping princess in her cursed tower. First there's the Dark Lord who wishes for the boy's untimely death . . . and also very fine cheese. Then there's a bard without a song in her heart but with a very adorable and fuzzy tail, an assassin who fears not the night but is terrified of chickens, and a mighty fighter more frightened of her sword than of her chain-mail bikini. This journey will lead to sinister umlauts, a trash-talking goat, the Dread Necromancer Steve, and a strange and wondrous journey to the most peculiar "happily ever after" that ever once-upon-a-timed.
