Received an ARC of Hounded by Kevin Hearne from the Amazon Vine early reviewer program. Thought it sounded interesting, as I'm not sure I've ever read a book where the main character was a Druid!
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.
Won a copy of an eBook: A Very Merry Chase by Teresa Thomas Bohannon. Thought it was pretty cool that the author "autographed" it for me, by adding my name to the title page.
Set in early 19th century Regency England, and harking back in style to the heyday of Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland, A Very Merry Chase is a comedy of manners and errors that boasts empire fashions, dashing characters, verbal sparring matches and witty repartee mingled with just a hint of mystery, danger and intrigue.
I've heard so much buzz about The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney that I finally decided to pick up a copy and read it for myself. Love the synopsis I read, so hope it lives up to all the hype!
Freak. That's what her classmates call seventeen-year-old Donna Underwood. When she was seven, a horrific fey attack killed her father and drove her mother mad. Donna's own nearly fatal injuries from the assault were fixed by magic - the iron tattoos branding her hands and arms. The child of alchemists, Donna feels cursed by the magical heritage that destroyed her parents and any chance she had for a normal life. The only thing that keeps her sane and grounded is her relationship with her best friend, Navin Sharma.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else received this week! The IMM posts are how I find most of my new reads! :)
