Manchee fans (of Chaos Walking) - you will love Oberon!Review for the males :Atticus is a guy's guy. He's got a dry sense of humor, doesn't spew pretty language for the sake of having to impress anyone, and spends a good portion of his time communicating with man's best friend - yep, a dog. A very intelligent dog who happens to be loyal and helpful in a pinch, but would rather be eating sausages and banging french poodles. Oh yeah, and this Atticus guy carries a big sword. And works some badass magic. And makes comparisons of things and circumstances with Hot Pockets and Star Wars in random conversations. Review for the females :Atticus is smart, pulls no punches, and is going to let you know straight up if he's interested. He's an ancient druid and is the kind of sexy in a way you'd find from meeting one of those casual cool guys who knows he's all that, but doesn't seem to really care or pay attention to it.This book is an action filled, gender-neutral Urban Fantasy that will appeal to the people who are tired of fluffy paranormals. I took to Atticus and his story immediately, in a way that I wish I could have with Dresden Files (don't worry DF fans...I'll get back there eventually, I promise!).I hear the books get even better, so I'm hyped. HYPED, I tell you.
