50 Page Fridays: Kevin Hearne


Every Friday, we here @ Del Rey Spectra will place a 50 page excerpt of a selected title on Unbound Worlds. Whether it is science fiction, epic fantasy, alternate history, horror, urban fantasy, paranormal, the possibilities are endless.

The fearless Atticus O’Sullivan is back in TRICKED, Kevin Hearne’s newest novel in his Iron Druid Chronicles Series. Read on as DRS editor Tricia Narwani shares with us just a few of the reason why she recommends this series so highly.

“Here’s a greatly abbreviated list of the reasons Kevin Hearne should be your #1 must-read this year—(greatly abbreviated, because, why are you reading this silly list when you could be reading Kevin Hearne?):

-A badass 2,000-year-old Druid hero who looks like a young rock star
-A wickedly seductive death goddess
-A talking Irish wolfhound
-Really good beer
-Epic battles with gods from all the world’s pantheons—and Shakespearean quote duels with Icelandic vampire lawyers
-MST3k and Monty Python references
-Scenic trips to Asgard and Tir na Nog
…and not to mention the smartest, funniest writing in urban fantasy since Jim Butcher.

is the fourth book in the Iron Druid Chronicles starring the unforgettable hero Atticus O’Sullivan. If you’re already a Kevin Hearne fan, you’re probably already tearing into this first taste of the latest Atticus adventure. If you’re a newb, you can find samples of the first three Iron Druid books in the Unbound Worlds 50 Page Fridays library. And be sure to visit KevinHearne.com and friend Kevin on Facebook for plenty of wit, wisdom, and giveaways.”

A big reveal comes at the start of the fifth chapter, so unfortunately this week our excerpt falls a few pages short of the normal 50-page count. But doesn’t that just entice you to read more?
