Publisher's Summary

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"!

What the Critics Say

"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 21st century.... A snappy narrative voice...a savvy urban fantasy adventure." (Library Journal, on Hounded)

Novella, Side Adventures Before Book 1

In this novella there are two stories and an excerpt for book 6 hunted (about 8 minutes). Both stories have a little of Oberon in them in case you are wondering. They take place before Granuaile as well.

The primary story involves an ancient book in Atticus's collection that leads him on a journey to Egypt. Here he must deal with Bast, God of cats, Sobek, God of crocodiles, evil wizards, and demons. This one was a lot of fun and anything that involves Oberon and cats is always a good fit.

Next, a short chapter presenting a preview of hunted is given. Then the last story is about clan Rathskeller, which takes place ten months before the book hounded. This one is about gnomes and fairies and is about fifty minutes long.

This may not be the best value for your buck on audible, but well worth it if you enjoy the series thus far. I liked this novella better than his last. Again, these are prequels to the current book and I hope Kevin Hearne in the future makes more of these side adventures.

The narration is always excellent. I don't think we could stand for having anyone else but Luke Daniels for the voice of Oberon.

**Do not read 0.5 first! Start at Book 1(Hounded)

What did you love best about Grimoire of the Lamb?

I finished the six books and decided to try the novellas in the series. I enjoyed this one. I liked getting a little glimps of what all went on in his life before the big adventure he is on now. Its a cute little read and it goes right along with what you would expect him to get caught up in


What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

He makes the Series. Ill never be able to listen to him read another series now, he is Atticus.


Any additional comments?

******************* I understand that it is book 0,5 because it took place at the begining of his adventures, but I just want to maybe recomment changing that. It was a great story, but its really not anything compareable to book 1, and I think when people go to start the series they follow the books in order. Might just be me but I am not sure if 0.5 would have hooked me on the series if I had started with it. Book 1 was so much more in depth, and made you want to read more. But thats not to say I didnt enjoy it :)
