Hexed by Kevin Hearne REVIEW

Hexed by Kevin Hearne (Iron Druid Chronicles #2)

library copy

Synopsis from Goodreads
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.

With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.

Iron Druid Chronicles are swiftly turning into one of my favourite series. These books are lively, quick witted and humorous. 

Atticus might look like a simpleminded surfer dude, but he is a very cunning 2000 year old man, the last Druid on Earth. Don't expect "dark, gloomy and dangerous" vibe from him. He looks like a golden boy, he tries to feel happy all the time and makes friends wherever he goes.

His dog, Oberon, was a stroke of genius from Kevin Hearne. He is outrageously  funny, you can't help but love him.

However, don't think, that it's all fun and games for Atticus. He is surrounded by jealous goddesses, death and destruction, he can be ruthless and swift in delivering his particular form of justice, and he is practical in what he needs to do to survive. I guess it comes from working with Earth and connecting to it all the time.

“They'll have to bring in Mulder an' Scully, because there ain't no CSI on the planet that'll ever be able to explain this.”

Hexed is choke full of action, brilliant dialogues and it's bittersweet. I cannot wait to get my hands on book #3! Recommended for any fan of Jim Butcher and Ben Aaronovitch.

Ещё одна остроумная, замечательная книга о друиде Аттикусе. За что я люблю Кевина Хеарна, так это за то, что Аттикус выглядит как золотой мальчик и глуповатый раздолбай, но на самом деле он решителен, жесток и практичен до неимоверности.

2 тысячи лет выживания среди ревнивых кельтских богов и различных монстров с тобой это сделают. Однако не смотря на всё, что последний Друид на земле пережил, он улыбчив, обладает шикарным чувством юмора, верен своим друзьям, терпелив и добр. Практически его характер схож с атрибутами самой Земли, с которой он постоянно работает.

Его пёс, Оберон, и его молчаливые телепатические разговоры с Аттикусом, - это нотка гения со стороны писателя, и Оберона невозможно не полюбить.

Однако не думаёте, что Хроники Железного Друида - это сплошные разговоры и смех. Здесь полно действия, разрушения и смертей. Люди и монстры умирают направо и налево с варварской лёгкостью, и книги Кевина всегда несут в себе горечь. Он выживает, но по какой цене?

Рекомендую чрезвычайно для всех фанатов Джима Бутчера и Бена Аароновича!

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
