The Bogeyman of Boora Bog | Kevin Hearne

The Bogeyman of Boora Bog is an interesting short, because it’s told through Owen’s eyes, it’s about his past, an anecdote of his but it also pertains to Atticus’ druidique origin.
Early on in the story, I thought it was foreshadowing the possible death of Atticus and/or Oberon’s in the next and last book – so you can imagine my panic, I love the dog lol. Then upon hearing the bogeyman ramble on about the villagers, I immediately thought “f*ck Granuaile will turn evil or some kind of eco-terrorist“. I even thought that it’s a way to help Greta forgive Atticus. All of that to say that I tried hard to look for a deeper meaning to the short. This short doesn’t move the plot forward much but it’s nice additional material.

Rating: 3 out of 5.
