Anyway, this nearly perfect book begins when Atticus - our hero and druid extraordinaire - discovers his old nemesis, Aenghus Og, wants a particular sword that Atticus happens to be in possession of. On Atticus' side are some pretty powerful beings, like the Morrigan (Chooser of the Slain and goddess of war), Brighid (goddess of poetry, fire, and the forge), and Flidais (goddess of the hunt). He's also got Oberon, a wolfhound he can converse with, not to mention 2,000 years of experience. Oh, did I mention that part? Yeah, he's been around a while so he has some skills not to mention a few other interesting allies. Of course, Aenghus has some friends of his own, including some double-dealing witches, Death on a pale horse, and a bunch of nasty demons. But like Atticus says, "Bring it, muthafuckas. Bring it."
