Giveaway: Two Ravens and One Crow (Iron Druid #4.5) by Kevin Hearne

From Goodreads:

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?


This series is so much fun! It is packed with humor and action, mythology and magic, it is a treat! I just introduced my husband to it on our vacation since he was a captive audience and we listened to the first book all in one day. I just love the style of humor and the banter between characters, the characters themselves, especially Oberon, Atticus' Irish Wolf Hound! You just want to cringe every time the Morrigan shows up (as does Atticus) because you know chaos is about to ensue.

Two Ravens and One Crow is a novella set between books 4 and 5 in which Atticus is called to answer for some of his past deeds by Odin. We also learn the story of his youth-preserving Immortali-Tea, and of course, there is mayhem! I think it would read fine on it's own even if you haven't read the series, but it will cause a few spoilers as it is based on events that happened in previous books. However, if you'd like a taste of the series and the characters, you get a little bit of everything in this novella and it will definitely be a good test of whether the series is for you.

I would love to help you out with that "taste test" so I'm going to give away a copy of Two Ravens and One Crow, maybe more than one if I have a lot of people interested. I will offer it in Kindle or Nook versions since it's only available as an ebook. Give it a try!

  1. Right now I'm reading The Woman Upstairs by Claire Messud and like it a lot. I have a Kevin Hearne book on audio (Hounded -- I think the first in the Iron Druid series?) that I need to listen to soon! I bought it quite a while ago after reading a review on The Guilded Earlobe that said how funny the author was.

  2. I am participating in a Christmas in July Read-a-Thon, so I am reading "Bite Before Christmas" by Lynsay Sands and Jeaniene Frost. I am listening to "Cedar Cove Christmas" by Debbie Macomber.

  3. Right now I'm reading Blame It on the Mistletoe by Joyce Magnin for Christmas in July, and I'm trying to finish One Day the Ice Will Reveal All Its Dead by Clare Dudman so that I can get it in the mail to Candy. It is a very good book, but so introspective and poetic that I just can't read it quickly no matter how hard I try.
