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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved Loved Loved Loved Loved Hexed is the second book in Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles and boy, is it awesome! I can’t get over the characters he’s created and the world they live in. And how smart and clever this series is! Okay, honestly, Kevin didn’t create many of the character. The Morrigan, Coyote, the Virgin Mary and such were not originally written by him, but the spin he puts to them is new. They read like new characters and I love it. His idea of writing that each and every god or goddess from every religion ever and of making each mythological creature ever as all being real and that they are all still around is so much fun. There is a scene in this book where Atticus is talking to the Virgin Mary while Coyote overlooks. It’s so so clever, I just loved it! Nicole Peeler quotes on the back cover of Hexed “Kevin Hearne breathes new life into old myths, creating a world both eerily familiar and startlingly original.” She hit the nail right on the head with that quote. Atticus is totally going to be added to my favorite characters list – when I have the patience anyway because that page is a pain to edit! He deserves it. If a man can have sass, Atticus has it. I know I keep saying this, but he is such a smart character. And funny! There are times while reading the first book that I found myself giggling quietly. While reading Hexed, there are times I broke out in a loud bark of laughter. You know the kind when you just shout out one big laugh unexpectedly. The kind where if there are people around you, you get strange looks. The kind where if caught, you will sometimes try to cover your laugh-bark with a fake coughing fit? Yeah, that kind. Book one was funny but I found book two to be even funnier. The villains this time around were witches. And let me tell you, Atticus hates witches. I think it’s neat how Kevin writes all different sorts of witches. None are ever cute and sweet. None. They are all creepy in their own right, just some are less creepy. The final fight scene was really exciting and that’s all I’m going to say about it. *g* Oberon, Hal, the widow, Leif and Granuaile are all extra wonderful secondary characters. All offer laughs and each bring lots to the overall story. Oberon (Atticus’ wolfhound that can communicate with him through his thoughts) is, simply put, freakin’ adorable! Not only should you read this book for Atticus, but you should also read it to experience all the other characters that Kevin has wound into this series. As you can tell, I thought this book was just okay. No…I thought it was awesome!! Hexed didn’t end with a cliffhanger but it did end with a clear-ish idea of where the next book, Hammered, will be going. Atticus and Leif are going to fight Thor! In Hounded and in Hexed, no one likes Thor. He is said to be a bit of an ass-hat. I can’t wait to meet Kevin’s take on Thor and to see how that battle will turn out. I know Atticus is going to be alright since Kevin recently announced that he’s been contracted to write three more books in the Iron Druid Chronicles (Woot!), but it will be neat to see how he gets out of this one. Overall, if you enjoy Urban Fantasy you must check out this series. Read them in order so you don’t miss any character development. The characters are one of the best part of this series and you don’t’ want to miss a thing about them. Pick up Hounded then read Hexed. Do it. Do it now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Fun Continuing the adventures of Atticus O'Sulllivan, last of the Druids, this entry introduces a group of bad witches [and I mean BAD] to counterpoint the good [ish] ones from the first book. Hearne expands the cast of characters, and manages to make The Morrigan almost a sympathetic Goddess. I enjoyed the book, especially the author's own sly dig at the his syntax in the first book ["You need to use more contractions when you speak!"]. Two issues: It suffers a little from "Laurell K. Hamilton Syndrome" [i.e. Intro the villains at the start, then wander off on personal character-based stuff for the next 90% of the book, then say, "Oh, yeah! The villains!" at the end and wrap up the conflict a bit too quickly]; and the author obviously knows as much about martial arts as I do, because the fight scenes are only very basically described [thebig final battle is only 5 pages long]. But I liked it, and look forward to book three, "Hammered".
