Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles book 1) by Kevin Hearne (book review).

As we approach the publication date for the final book in the ‘Iron Druid’ series, I thought it was finally time to pick up the first book. ‘Hounded’, and see what all the hype has been about. It’s an urban fantasy series and, as that’s one of my favourite genres, I had high hopes for […]
