Yes, despite the silly cover art it's quite an enjoyable fun listen.
Loved that this was not paranormal romance, but rather a easy to digest tale of an ancient druid living a modern day life in Arizona and the gods and monsters he consorts with.
Fabulous performance! But, and I am clearly in the minority here... I really disliked the main characters dog, Oberons' scooby doo vocal delivery. It always pulled me out of an otherwise fantastic performance and fun plot.I'd suggest you listen to a sample so you can get a taste as you might not be as bothered as I was.
I will probably read the sequels as opposed to listening, then I can bestow a more erudite tone to Oberon.
Very enjoyable tale especially if you enjoy mythology.
The characterization is flawless. Each voice can be easily distinguished.
I love his interpretation of Oberon.
I love the interaction of Atticus with Mrs. MacDonaugh and the verbal repartee between Oberon and Leif Helgarson.
It made me laugh out loud.
The premise of the 2100 year old druid kept alive by the fact that his existence pissed off a major death goddess's immortal enemy.
It was a kind of swashbuckling tale, akin to taking Lord of the Rings and having it be rewritten by Christopher Moore.
The wry humour and the different fully fleshed voices of the character, particularly the Widow McDonough and Oberon, the dog sidekick.
Very good storyline and humor, however for a 4000 year old drewid the main character has the meturaty of a 17 year old.
Great story, and the experience was greatly enhanced by the narrator. His "Oberon" voice is fantastic! As long as Luke Daniels narrates the series, I will continue paying for the audiobook instead of borrowing the books from the library.
I love a book with Duids, Vampires, Werewolves and such. Well written. Well performed. Hooked on some Kevin Hearne and his stories. Just bought the whole series.
I love how the ancient one uses modern colloquialisms. It works for me.
His fairly deadpan performance is perfect. It wouldn't work for me if he read in a more dramatic, high energy way. It just is what it is.
Yes. I was driving, so I almost accomplished that.
Yes. I really enjoyed the story; grabbed me the minute I started listening. Luke Daniels did a great job narrating. I will be purchasing the other books in this series.
One of my favorite series is Jim Butcher's Dresdin Files. If you like that series, you will enjoy The Iron Druid series.
Snarky, non-stop adventure
I loved the odd references and the different types of characters. They just all mixed so well even if they didn't play well together. I've never had so much fun listening to a book.
Oberon. I want an Irish Wolfhound now.
Yes, I've listened to it twice. The stories are great for solitary road trips and to prevent road rage in traffic.
