|Atticus O’Sullivan, his apprentice Granuaile and wolfhound Oberon are racing across modern-day Europe to seek the help of a friend, Tuatha De Danann. They are being chased by two goddesses of the hunt, Artemis and Diana. The goddesses are seeking revenge and other gods and powerful beings are getting in on the action. Some to aid Atticus and some to aid the goddesses. Still others just for their own amusement. Atticus's usual magical druid option of shifting to another plane is blocked so now all they can do is run and hope to reach safety.|
Then Loki decides to get in on the fun. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok and the end of the world.
This series is full of Celtic, Norse, Greek and other ancient mythology as well as plenty of adventure, but my favorite part is Oberon who Atticus can communicate with magically. Seeing all of the adventure and chaos happen through the eyes of a loyal dog companion just adds to the fun.
