Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it - and furthermore, he knows he can handle it. When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy! Engaging the services of his faithful Druid, Oberon must travel throughout Oregon and Washington to question a man with a huge salami, thwart the plans of diabolical squirrels, and avoid, at all costs, a fight with a great big bear. But if he's going to solve the case of the Purloined Poodle, Oberon will have to recruit the help of a Boston terrier named Starbuck, survive the vegetables in a hipster pot pie, and firmly refuse to be distracted by fire hydrants and rabbits hiding in the rose bushes. At the end of the day, will it be a sad bowl of dry kibble for the world's finest hound detective, or will everything be coming up sirloins? The Purloined Poodle is another exciting novella entry in Kevin Hearne's New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series.

What is my purpose? How do I find my passion? Most people wake up and drive to a job that they hate. Think about your five closest friends. Are they happy? Do they live their lives with purpose? Do you? We put on a fake front for what we want people to see and think about us, but the reality is most people arenât happy. Weâre lost. We settle. We arenât happy with where we are. You canât be happy if you donât know your purpose. Itâs not possible. You want more but you donât even know where to start. You know there is more out there. You see others having success and you want it, too; there is nothing wrong with that. You just need help finding your purpose, so you can find the success you see all around you. You can be productive, crush your goals, pretend that all the things that youâve acquired actually mean somethingâ¦but at the end of the day, if you donât know your purpose, youâll always feel like thereâs something missing. Youâll know that youâre capable of more and that youâre not living the life you should be. You might be fooling the world, but youâre not fooling the person looking back at you in the mirror. You need to find your actual power source. Your purpose is your source of power. Once you find your purpose itâll fuel you for life. Youâll do things that you never thought you were capable of. Achieving your purpose will force you to morph into a stronger version of yourself. Youâll have to push through fears, insecurities, and doubts that held you back. But somehow itâll all feel possible and necessary because youâre purpose-driven nowâ¦and thatâs the only thing youâll ever need.
