    HoundedHounded by Kevin Hearne

    Synopsis:
     
    Tempe, Arizona is as far removed from paranormal activity as is possible. And that’s where Atticus O’Sullivan, rare book salesman, herb peddler, and 2,000 year old Druid – the last of his kind – has decided to set up shop. He’s been on the run, guarding a very powerful sword from a very angry ancient Celtic god for over two millennia now. But while these years have been good to him – Atticus has become more powerful than he could have possibly imagined – The Morrigan, a very old god of death, has predicted death and doom for our hero, and it’s up to Atticus, with help from a pride of werewolves, and a gorgeous bartender possessed by an Indian witch, to stay alive, hopefully for another thousand years.
     
    Teaser from Chapter 1
     
    I had left my back open to attack by lunging to the right, so I spun and raised my left forearm high to block the blow I knew was coming.  Sure enough, there was a sword about to arc down into my skull, and I caught it on my arm on the top of the swing.  It bit down to the bone, and that hurt a lot, but not nearly as much as it would have if I had let it fall.  I grimaced at the pain and stepped forward to deliver a punishing open-hand blow to the faery’s solar plexus, and he flew back into the wall of my shop, the wall ribbed with bar of iron.  Three down, and I smiled at the remaining two, who were not so zealous as before to take a shot at me.  Three of their buddies had not only been physically beaten but also magically poisoned by physical contact with me. My cold iron amulet was bound to my aura, and by now they could no doubt see it; I was some sort of Iron Druid, their worst nightmare made flesh.
     
    This has been a great listen so far, very entertaining!  What do you have for this Teaser Tuesday?
