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"!

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.

Heads Up--There's a Second Story
"Grimoire of the Lamb" is only two hours long on this 3-hour item. I stopped in disappointment when "Lamb" ended and the narration turned to an excerpt from the soon-to-be-released sixth novel (which, like most of us who have become hard-core suckers for this series, I will probably buy in its entirety).
Then I read the review by Brian from Santa Cruz, who points out that if you skip over the 10 minutes or so of the outtake, there's a whole second story ("Clan Rathskellar") on the selection. So it's not as disappointing as I thought at first. Thanks, Brian!
Neither story is anything spectacular, just fun sidelights for us hard-core types getting our Luke Daniels as Atticus and Oberon fix.

shoulda stuck with Christopher Ragland
What made the experience of listening to Grimoire of the Lamb the most enjoyable?
What aspect of Luke Daniels’s performance might you have changed?
Lukes performance was fine.. but completely jarred when i had listened to Christopher Ragland for All the other books

Great short short story
Any additional comments?
Another great episode in the Iron Druids life. But no offence to the narrator of this episode but he hasn't got the voices right at all, especially Oberons. I really prefer Christopher Ragland's narration of the rest of he series. However this episode is Definatley worth a listen.
