My Rating 3 out of 5 Stars
Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shapeshifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.
I love all the supporting characters. I can't get enough of Coyote and Oberon. I just don't care to much about Atticus. He's the main character but, I feel like his character is flawed. There is something wrong with him. He's old but, reminds me of an annoying teenage boy.
This story was good. Coyote's tricks are wonderful and I enjoyed him getting the better of Atticus. I didn't always see them coming. I loved the first two books. Books three and four are not quit as good but, I still enjoyed them.
