"Waiting On" Wednesday: Hounded

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's "Waiting On" Wednesday selection is:

By Kevin Hearne

From Publishers Weekly~
Hearne, a self-professed comic-book nerd, has turned his love of awesome dudes whacking mightily at evil villains into a superb urban fantasy debut.  Staying alive for 2,000 years takes a great deal of cunning, and sexy super-druid Atticus O'Sullivan, currently holed up in the Ariona deser, has vexed a few VIPs along the way.  High up on that list is Aenghus Og, the Celtic god of love.  It's not just that Aenghus wants his sword back--though it is a very nice magical sword--but that Atticus didn't exactly ask permission to take it.  Atticus and his trusty sidekick, Irish wolfhound Oberon, make an eminently readable daring duo as they thwart his schemes with plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting.

I don't know if it's the fact that the main character is named Atticus, that he is a druid, or that he has an Irish wolfhound named Oberon.  But this book sounds awesome and mysterious, and it makes me think of The Dresden Files.  Here's hoping that's true. ^_^

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
