At first I didn't think I would like it, but the more I read, the more I really liked it!.... alot!
The use of all mythology
No I haven't and Luke is awesome at narrating!
Laugh alot, it's a fun book with lots of room to grow
Loved it! Clever characters and story line -- the dog steals the show! Good-hearted and scary with a protagonist I'd love to have as my neighbor.
Luke Daniels reading and being able to pronounce the foreign languages...very cool
Of course it's Oberon, who doesn't want to be able to talk to their dog? I found myself talking to my own dog in the same voice Luke uses for Oberon...OK, I am a nerd.
I wanted the story to be longer, I am looking forward to this series going on for many years to come!
I love it, when at the end of a book, I want to go out and wield magic or a sword or talk to my dog,. That is what this series does to me. I wonder if their is a Druid out there in need of an apprentice? Yeah, like I said, I am a nerd.
So many fun things to do so little time
So i started listening to this book not expecting much. WOW was i surprised. I started it in the morning and i just had to finish it that same day. I wanted to just keep listening. I was laughing at least once each chapter. I also just loved the story because it started pretty quickly but also just kept building up and has those good peaks and valleys you find in any book. If you like a good laugh and enjoy fast paced books you will probably like this.
If you have nerdy interests at all you will like this series. I was on the search for a modern fantasy series - not the paranormal romance that seems to be everywhere now - and this series was an unexpected find. There are laugh out loud moments, smart characters, and an engaging, fast paced plot. This is the first book in the series, and I plowed through the first three in one weekend - buying the next as soon as I was done with the one before. Had to wait a few weeks before book 4 came out - I was biting my nails every day in anticipation! The best thing is that one night I was listening out loud in bed, and my boyfriend got sucked in too - he doesn't listen to audio (would much prefer to be on his computer or playing a game) but started laughing at the characters and we had to go back to the beginning. Now we're listening together - his first audio experience! Nerdtastic writing, and the narrator does a great job with voices for unusual characters. I will never be able to look at an Irish Wolfhound now without hearing Oberon's voice in my head.
The reader brought this story to life. It was full of adventure yet there was a genuine storyline and realistic characters with character development and interaction. In order to keep reading it was funny, sad, and inviting. I plan on reading more of this series.
Maeb was a great character but the most fun was the dog.
I would definitely recommend this book. It is clever and imaginative, and funny.
While in a potential life and death situation, the main character seems to be able to find humor no matter what is going on. More than once I laughed out loud at the clever observations or word play.
excellent funny gripping
the talks Adicus has with the dog
sitting on the widows front porch sipping whiskey
great read and can't go wrong with a narrated book by Luke Daniels
The narrators performance of Oberon's voice.
Oberon. He brought a new and unusual idea to the mix.
