If you were saying to yourself, “I need more Atticus.” I need more of the witty humor, the big exotic tales, the sexiness that is the millennia old druid…well Kevin Hearne fulfilled your fantasy. It’s what we call Lagniappe in New Orleans, a little extra. Eight tales from the Iron Druid Chronicles, told from Atticus’ POV and also from Owen’s POV and one from Granuaile and Perun. Lots of fun. They are all sitting around and telling stories, and you feel like you could be sitting there with them.
I won’t go into detail with each story, this is going to be a short review. If you are a fan of the Iron Druid Chronicles you will not want to miss this one. If you haven’t read an Iron Druid novel – you should get on that right now. You will not want to start here, this one should be read after book 8, because some of the stories happen after that timeline.
This series the epitome of AMAZING URBAN FANTASY. Everything you want from the genre. I’m always impressed with Hearne’s attention to detail, his intuitive study of past, which he casually slips into his novels. BESIEGED was no different. Why are you hanging around here?? Go read these books.
“For all that we are social creatures, we are too often shoved into solitary confinement by circumstance. The color of our skin isn’t like everyone else’s, or our language is different, or our religion isn’t the one that gets us invited to dinner by the neighbors. That last one has kept me alone for a long, long time.”

Harry Dresden meets American Gods in this collection of all-new stories set in the bestselling world of The Iron Druid Chronicles, starring 2,000-year-old Irishman/Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan.
The Iron Druid Chronicles is a hilarious and action-packed urban fantasy set in a modern world in which all the gods of every pantheon are alive and well, as in American Gods; its hero is a smart-mouthed, buttkicking magician, like Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden. But it’s told in a smart, witty, unforgettable voice that’s all Kevin Hearne—a star in the fantasy world. This addictive and wildly imaginative series stars hero Atticus O’Sullivan: a handsome, tattooed Irishman who looks like a young rock star, but is in actuality a 2,000-year-old Druid with extraordinary magic powers. In Besieged, Atticus’ adventures throughout history are told in a collection of nine new and original short stories.
