After centuries of running and hiding, Atticus has once again been discovered by the Irish god who wants him dead, only this time he's tired of running. Of course that means facing off with an angry, super powerful god, and that's only if he lives through all the lesser bad guys headed his way.

Meet Atticus O’Sullivan, the last surviving druid in a modern world where Druids are all but forgotten and beings far older and more powerful roam unnoticed.

Hounded is a fast moving, action packed story with an interesting setting and colorful cast of characters. While the ending may seem relatively conclusive, this is the first book and readers who continue on will find the series big on consequences.
