ShatteredShattered by Kevin Hearne is out today. This is the seventh book in The Iron Druid Chronicles.

For nearly two thousand years, only one Druid has walked the Earth—Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company.

Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy.

And Owen has some catching up to do.

Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse.

But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat.

As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time, three’s a charm.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond. Lots of news this week with Star Wars Rebels, but also a lot of other news in the book realm and elsewhere.

Book News

  • This one falls more under rumor than solid news as it’s a very strange find, but Knights Archive spotted an Amazon listing for an untitled Ballantine Star Wars book with “(Star Wars: Jedi Academy)” in the listing. The hardcover has a November 4, 2014 release date with LucasBooks as the publisher. Placeholder mess up? Re-release of Kevin J. Anderson’s classic trilogy? Or something genuine and new? Who knows, but it’s interesting.
  • Other new listings on Amazon include Star Wars Costumes by Brandon Alinger coming from Chronicle Books in October, and the next book in the Star Wars Art series Star Wars Art: Posters which is also set for October.
  • Kevin Hearne has posted tour dates for his next Iron Druid Chronicles book Shattered.
  • The cover for Jason Fry‘s next book has been revealed – The Jupiter Pirates: Curse of the Iris.
