In the aftermath of his defeat of Aenghus Óg (the Celtic god of love) in the first book Hounded, Atticus O'Sullivan has taken up a Druid initiate and hopes that life with his dog Oberon can return to some normalcy. Still wielding the magic sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer, O'Sullivan soon discovers that the notoriety that comes with dispatching a deity often does more harm than good. With two Celtic goddesses vying for his affections and alliegance, as well as two covens of witches hell bent on destorying each other, O' Sullivan will need more than a magic sword and a quick wit to fend off evil.
