Kurzbeschreibung

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • For nearly two thousand years, only one Druid has walked the Earth—Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company.
 
Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy.
 
And Owen has some catching up to do.
 
Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse.
 
But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat.
 
As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time, three’s a charm.

Before talking about actual content, I would like to start this review with a discussion of style, and how the style of the series is further changed through this book.

Personally, I like books in first person perspective. Kevin O'Hearne has done this with his Iron Druid Series right from the start, and of course he has hit the inevitable rock bottom that is the biggest problem in every first person novel: how can he give his readers some additional information that the main character is yet unaware of?

Kevin O'Hearne has encountered this problem before, and he had a simple, yet effective solution to it: In the former book of the series, he alternated between Atticus and Granuaille by the chapter. That made for an interesting reading, and I liked it immenseley, especially since we're learning more about Granuaille. She has stopped being background, and started being a real individual.

This latest installment in the series take this even further; Kevin starts with alternating between Granuaille and Atticus, but soon another narrator is installed, making for a round of 3 (the chapters switch orderly between these narrators) - Readers, please meet and welcome Owen Kennedy, former archdruid - and now kind of student - to Atticus.

Owen brings tremendously fun to this series, with his simple wit and cunning grasp of the new situations. And he brings some secrets with him...

So, we've ended the discussion of style, and finally entered the discussion of content. I don't want to spoil you, but the heat is getting more and more intense as we learn of Lokis plans and mischevious behavour. Both Granuaille and Atticus are working on their ends of seemingly totally unrelevant events, but nothing is ever unrelated in this series.

Note: this is book 7 in an UF series with a strong overall story arc. So this is not a good place to start and the review will contain spoilers for events in prior books. So if you're new to "The Iron Druid Chronicles", I recommend to stop reading here and start at the beginning.

Review

I'm a huge fan of Atticus, his coolest wolfhound ever and the series as a whole. And I'm happy that a story thread that went on for a long time, is finally solved and questions are answered: Atticus finds out, who of the Tir Na Nog inhabitants is behind the schemes to get him and Granuille killed. And that revelation is devastating and unexpected and leaves a gap between the people of the fae plane. To be precise, it's not Attiucs himself, but Owen, his former Archdruid, whom Atticus saved from the Time Islands, who finds out about the plot. Owen, looking for an occupation and trying to get used to a life in a world totally unknown to him, sets out to visit Tir Na Nog. And while staying there, he endeavors to solve the riddle of the murder machinations. Owen's voice was one of the POVs, besides Atticus and Granuille's and I didn't really care for him. His getting used to the nowadays world wasn't all that interesting [compared to Atticus' usual adeventures].

Another thing I didn't really like was Atticus and Granuille expriencing two pretty much separate adventures. Therefore, something was missing - even the "hound banter" was less than usual. Atticus didn't come across as cool and wisecracking as he usually does and Granuille made some immensely stupid decisions, she dearly had to pay for. She normally isn't like that and it felt out of character.

The book was cool, but I missed a bit of what distinguishes the series and its characters from other UF.

Nach den Auseinandersetzungen mit der nordischen und der griechisch-römischen Götterwelt in den letzten beiden Bänden, die unter anderem ja auch den Abgang der Morrigan bedingt haben, scheinen sich die Dinge um Atticus und Granuaille zu normalisieren – soweit dies überhaupt möglich ist. Granuaille hat nun ihre eigene Hündin – und die Aufgabe, ihr das Sprechen beizubringen, so wie es auch Oberon tut – und im Auftrag Morrigans hat Atticus aus einer anderen Zeitdimension seinen alten Lehrer befreit, den grummeligen Erzdruiden, der in unserer Zeit den Namen Owen Kennedy tragen wird. Es steckt da auch ein wenig Eigennutz drin, denn nach einem seiner letzten Kämpfe sind seine Verwandlungstätowierungen beschädigt – und die kann nur Meister Owen wieder in Ordnung bringen.

Doch nun ist es so, dass Atticus der Lehrer wird, denn Owen hat 2000 Jahre in extrem verlangsamter Zeit verbracht und dadurch eine ganze Menge Geschichte verpasst – und ist eigentlich, im Vergleich mit seinem ehemaligen Schüler, absolut unerfahren. Was die Grundlage für allerlei lustige Situationen bietet in diesem Band.

Während sich Atticus also um seinen alten Lehrmeister und seine eigenen Tätowierungen kümmert, erhält Granuaille durch die vedische Gottheit Laksha die Nachricht, dass ihr Vater bei Grabungen in Indien dummerweise ein Gefäß geöffnet hat, das einen überaus gefährlichen Dämon enthalten hat, der nun in ihn hinein gefahren ist und eine Art Pestilenz verbreitet. Zusammen mit ihrer Hündin bricht sie auf, um sich darum zu kümmern – nur um zu erfahren, dass sie dazu ein Hilfsmittel benötigt, das es nur in den verschneiten Höllen des Himalaya gibt.
