This is an eBook novella on sale at Amazon, B&N, Kobo, iBooks, etc., for $2.99. It’ll be available in the UK, Australia, and affiliated territories too, albeit with a different cover, and I believe (but haven’t confirmed) that it will be on audio too in the US & Canada. Keep checking with Audible on that. Pre-order is now available for Kindle, Nook, and iBooks, and should appear on the Kobo site as well in the next day or two. Thank you in advance for reading!

Oh yeah: There’s a preview of HUNTED included in the back!

So what’s this about? Here’s the “back cover” copy Del Rey wrote up:

When he’s not vanquishing villainous gods or dodging demons, two-thousand-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan can be found behind the counter of Third Eye Books and Herbs in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, literally minding his own business. But when an evil sorcerer—and amateur shoplifter—snatches an ancient Egyptian tome of black magic, The Grimoire of the Lamb, Atticus is not sheepish about pursuing him to the ends of the earth . . . or at least to the Land of the Pharaohs.
Unfortunately, Atticus already has enemies in Egypt—including cat goddess Bast, who wants her own book of mischief back from the Druid. In the streets of Cairo, she sends a feline phalanx after Atticus and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon. With fur still flying, Atticus must locate the sorcerer’s secret lair—where he will face killer crocodiles, spooky sarcophagi, and an ancient evil Egyptian who’s determined to order the sacrificial lamb special tonight.

It’s set in 2005, four years before HOUNDED. Aenghus Óg hasn’t found him yet, Granuaile isn’t bartending at Rúla Búla, but we do get a cameo from the widow MacDonagh. Hope you dig it—please share and spread the word! Rock on—

    I preordered it. The cover is great. I can’t wait to read it even though Bast is one I my favourite goddesses.

  3. Cantaloopy says:

    Ooooh, nice! Atticus keeps getting sexier and sexier. ;)
    Good work, Kevin and the talented artist (sorry, forgot the name…).

  5. Ann Videan says:

    Cannot wait for Oberon’s take on Egyptian cats. [I bet he could beat Anubis in a sausage-eating contest any day, too, should that ever come down. :)]

  6. Ricardo says:

    Awesome indeed. Will there be an audiobook version also?

  7. Clem Morton says:

    Sweet! Can’t wait, I sure hope its on audiobook! NEED something great to listen to this summer while shoveling out horse corrals, and taking care of little campers!
    So excited, if its releasing in may probably right around my birthday it could not be better.!

  8. Kevin says:

    Yes. Luke Daniels will be recording it.

    This is great news. Atticus and the gang are the most entertaining and interesting crew of the decade. Decades of science fiction writers have left a legacy that enriches our minds and imaginations every time we visit their worlds. This series of books is part of the future, I can’t wait until my grandchildren are old enough to read this for themselves so that it becomes part of their own journey into the wonder of great writing.

    In all the years I’ve loved reading I’ve never looked forward to a new book in a series more than with The Iron Druid books. This kind of writing should never be limited by genre, it’s expansive and gripping and should appeal to anyone who loves a good tale well told.

  10. Ricardo says:

    Great news all around then. I’ll be very much looking forward to it.

  11. Karen says:

    YAY! The widow is back! I’ve missed her.

  12. novisha says:

    Huzzah! And i do soooooo miss the merry widow!

  13. Roy Ayres says:

    Not showing on yet :-(

  14. Kevin says:

    It’ll be there soon, and definitely before the publication date. No worries!

  15. Ed Bunyan says:

    Yesssssss!!!! Can’t wait to get my eyeballs (Kindle) and ears (Audible) around this one. Can’t wait to tell my Mummy it is coming out soon. Sorry, couldn’t resist, I had to take the wraps off the mummy line.

    Can’t wait. I’m pre-odering on payday. That is when, Zephyr my dog can get more treats and I can treat myself too.
