So, let’s celebrate the book and the author and
wish them a happy Book Birthday.
So, are you ready to celebrate???
This is the week of sequels.. 

The most exciting book for me this week is :

Hammered by Kevin  Hearne
(Del Rey)

Linkies: goodreads, author website, amazon (paperback, Kindle and audiobook)

Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully—he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.
One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona. There’s a vampire turf war brewing, and Russian demon hunters who call themselves the Hammers of God are running rampant. Despite multiple warnings and portents of dire consequences, Atticus and Leif journey to the Norse plain of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself.

Kevin is the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, an urban fantasy series published by Del Rey Books. The first three books of the series will be released in May and June of 2011.
An Arizona native, Kevin got hooked on comic books at an early age and embraced his inner nerd. Later he got hooked on coffee, but that did nothing to ameliorate his nerdhood. He spent time as a singing waiter in college and also contributed to the college newspaper as an editorial cartoonist and feature columnist. It was during this time he got the writing bug, thanks to Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.
He now teaches high school English, reads lots of fantasy, and paints miniature dwarfs because the redundancy amuses him. He’s currently working on the fourth book in The Iron Druid Chronicles.
Happy Bookobirthday to Kevin, Atticus, Oberon and Hammered !!
I could dance around in excitement and can’t wait
to start litening to the audio.
Because, the audio is fanfreakintastic!!
Epic awesomeness!
