An Iron Druid Novella #4.5

Two Ravens and One Crow

Two Ravens and One Crow by Kevin Hearne

Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon—and he must also leave his sword. The Morrigan has always taken extreme pleasure in pronouncing the Druid’s mortal danger and imminent doom, so the fact that she won’t reveal the purpose of their journey makes him very nervous. Of course, any time the Celtic Chooser of the Slain drops in unannounced, it’s never good. When she does let slip that she’ll be saving his life in the near future, Atticus is left to wonder . . . will he soon be giving his legions of enemies something to crow about?

Odin wants nothing more for Atticus to pay for killing one of his pet ravens in the fight against Thor, but instead of exacting punishment, he proposes that Atticus take the place of Thor in Ragnarok in the battle with Hel, assuming he will be destroyed then.
My rating: Liked it!
