Kevin Hearne – A Real Find
Kevin Hearne – A Real Find avatar

Like many other people, I was getting tired of the run-of-the-mill vampire/werewolf books that seemed to be taking over the fantasy field. Then, based on review by Charles de Lint in Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine, I decided to try a writer I had never heard of: Kevin Hearne. I was delightfully surprised by this series of novels about the last of the Druids, Atticus O’Sullivan.

Hounded by Kevin HearneIn the first book, Hounded, the reader is introduced to all the vampires, witches, werewolves, gods, and demons anyone could want. The difference here is in the humor, the up-to-date tone, and the likeableness of the characters (especially Atticus’ dog, Oberon). It’s very rare to find a book that is as fast-paced, laugh-out-loud funny, and hard-to-put-down as this one.

I was a little worried that Hearne wouldn’t be able to keep up the high quality of the jokes, plots, and characters but that was a needless concern. I have read all of the first four Trapped by Kevin Hearnebooks, one after the other, without losing interest. In fact, I can’t wait for number 5 to be published in Nov. 2012.

I hope Mr. Hearne’s muse isn’t killed by one of the characters in his books (like so many other supernatural beings have been) and that he continues to write for a good, long time.
