Waiting On...TRICKED by Kevin Hearne

Another urban fantasy series that I adore is the Iron Druid series by Kevin Hearne. He blew me away last year by releasing his first three books in quick succession and had me drooling for more (ooh, Atticus, you hot druid, you). While the cover's a little busy, I like the coloring and the spot of power and runes coming out of Atticus's hand. Plus, it follows in the footsteps of the other three in this series, which I always appreciate (call me anal retentive--I prefer to have my covers match. It looks prettier on my bookshelves that way.).
Urban Fantasy (adult)
384 pages, paperback
Releases: April 24, 2012
Publisher: Random House

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.

So, what are you waiting on?
