Hexed (The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book Two) [Kindle Edition]

Hexed brings Atticus back in a much more complex and Dresden-esque plot. Readers of the Iron Druid series will be pleased at the more mature writing style and character development in this sequel. It is obvious that the series is growing older and better, just like the rest of us...

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.

With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.

I still recommend this book for younger readers, especially those that enjoy the Dresden series by Jim Butcher. It is far less appealing to the glitter-vamp crowd of urban fantasy readers, but I've think fans of the glitter-vamp genre are all demented anyway.
