Tempe, Arizona is as far removed from paranormal activity as is possible. And that's where Atticus O?Sullivan, rare book salesman, herb peddler, and 2,000 year old Druid ? the last of his kind ? has decided to set up shop. He's been on the run, guarding a very powerful sword from a very angry ancient Celtic god for over two millennia now. But while these years have been good to him ? Atticus has become more powerful than he could have possibly imagined ? The Morrigan, a very old god of death, has predicted death and doom for our hero, and it's up to Atticus, with help from a pride of werewolves, and a gorgeous bartender possessed by an Indian witch, to stay alive, hopefully for another thousand years.
