Description:
For a two-thousand-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt—Artemis and Diana—for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is . . . run like hell.

Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok—AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living—and still have a world to live in.

Includes Kevin Hearne’s novella “Two Ravens and One Crow” in the back of the book

I read this one very fast as well because like the last one it has a lot of suspense.

I liked the POV-change between Atticus and Granuaile in the middle.

Because I like Artemis it was a bit weird to see her as one of the opponents in this volume, but still a good read.

I also liked the end with Atticus' old archdruid. Haven't read the following volume yet, but I'm looking forward to it.  ;D
