Another fun read, actually better than the first since we didn't have so much back story to deal with. I like Oberon. A bit over done, but that's part of the fun.

As urban fantasies go, this one is a bit different from most I've read lately. While it has some kick-ass girls, vamps, werewolves & such in it, the guy is a very good, quite human one for all his age & powers. This one, as the title suggests, concentrates more on witches & he brings a lot of interesting lore to the table. ( )

Much better storyline than number 1. Still an easy read without too much going on. Slightly better written. ( )

Atticus can't seem to catch a break. Sure, he kills a couple of the gods of the Tuatha &Dacute;e Danann but that just makes him a target for other gods who would like him to do the same to their enemies. He is also torn between the Morrigan and Brighid as they struggle to fill the gap left by Atticus.

Of course, Atticus also has witch troubles. He is all set to sign a mutual non-aggression pact with the local witches when some witches from out of town show up. Not only do they want the local witches dead, but they'd love to kill Atticus too.

It doesn't help that the werewolves are angry because of the actions in the previous book and aren't willing to get involved in this new trouble. Then there are the leftover demons from the actions in the last book. Coyote is quick to assure Atticus that it is his problem to solve.

The book is filled with action but there is still time for some of the snarky dialog between Atticus and his dog Oberon and between Atticus and his new apprentice Granuaile. Atticus is not a typical urban fantasy hero. He would be more than willing to live and let live. However, his enemies keep forcing his hand.

This urban fantasy series keeps getting better and better. I can't wait to read book 3. ( )

Druid Atticus O’Sullivan makes nice with a coven of witches and signs a treaty with them just as another, much less friendly, coven shows up to make trouble for all. These books are all very similar in style and voice, but are a lot of fun. I wouldn't go to them for gravitas and emotional investment, but for a whirlwind trip through the world's mythologies, it's a great ride. And Oberon is always worth his share of the sausages and bacon! ( )

Fun. I liked getting to know the witches and the attorneys better. I love the conversations with the dog. Liked the descriptions re the three story building assault. Interesting with the witch from NC who will divorce her new husband. Scary re the witches from LV with pointy teeth at the dance club. Lots of bodies piling up in this series.The character makes me think of what Harry Dresden might be like in twenty centuries. Love the widow. The gods-meh. But I like Coyote. ( )

Book description
Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.

With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.
