The Princess Curse
Ages 10 and up. Twelve princesses suffer from a puzzling - and silly - curse. Sharp-witted Reveka, an herbalist's apprentice, has little use for princesses, but plenty of use for the reward money she'll earn if she breaks the curse. Her efforts lead her to deeper mysteries: a shadowy stranger as charming as he is unsettling, and a blighted land in desperate need of healing.

Hearne, Kevin  
Iron Druid #6: Hunted
Plus novella 'Two Ravens and One Crow'. Dodging the slings and arrows of not one but two goddesses of the hunt, Atticus, Granuaile, and wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha De Danann. The usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so the game plan is to run like hell. Crashing the marathon is the Norse god Loki; killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the huntresses and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living - and still have a world to live in.
