Neil Gaimans American Gods meets Jim Butchers Harry Dresden.SFFWorld The downside to faking your own death is that people tend to get upset when they find out theyve been had. In Atticus OSullivans case, theyre upset enough to come after him to make sure he dies for real this time. Yet he cant remain in hiding anymore: He has to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth so that she can become the first new Druid in centuries. But the Roman god Bacchus wants mortal revenge for a slight against him, and he proceeds to act on the principle that Atticus should hate his life until it can be ended. Members of the Norse pantheon arent particularly pleased with Atticus eitherespecially one who had languished in darkness, slowly going mad, and is now free to work his mischief again. On top of that, an ancient vampire, whod like to remove Atticus and Granuaile as threats to his kind, is working on his own plan for their destruction. Forced to work at the base of Mount Olympus, Atticus and Granuaile must survive the three-month process of her binding and escape the many traps set for them. Its fortunate that they have Oberon the Irish Wolfhound on their sidebut is one good dog going to be enough to see them through it?
