the structure/framework of the story, nice character development, too
Highlander, Dresden Files
all nicely done
will most likely listen to the rest of the series
Unique twist on the Fantasy genre with the ancient druid still living in Arizona, kind of like Doctor Who the last of his kind who choices to stay and help us out.
Dresden Files and Doctor Who
The Irish Wolfhound who's child-like view of the world is communicated perfectly by the narrator.
Adventures of the Last Druid
The characters could use a little more development so you care for them more when their lives are on the line. If he had combined Hounded and Hexed into one book it would have been much better.
This book is a refreshing fantasy story for one who is worn out from exhausting, multi-arc epics. One need not keep track of 3, 4, or 5+ story arcs like one might find in George R. R. Martin's or Tolkien's epics. Very refreshing to hear a tale that does not get convoluted or become a quagmire of details one must keep track of.
The book is narrated well. Some listeners might not appreciate the narrator's accent or snarky sound, but I say that it parallels the narration found in the Dresden novels.
The book combines pantheons and mythos similar to the Dresden universe, by far my favorite (new found) way to present high fantasy instead of a singular pantheon/mythos setting.
This is a great series,really fun read.The talking dog could have been left out.but reccomend this series.
I did not read the print version, but I loved Luke Daniels voice, inflection, and....we everything... I think he added as much to the book as the story itself.
I can't pick one thing. I love the characters, the unfolding of the story, the action, and the humor.
They are all equally amazing. After listening to this story, I actually go out of my way to select stories he narrates.
I laughed a lot, was tense, and very emotionally invested in the ride (it's a ride more than a read)
I listen to audiobooks when I'm in the car. This series is my only exception -- I actually carry it around with me and listen to it everywhere because I can't walk away from it.
Interesting characters, frequent action and adequate history combine to pull the reader/listener in. The current-day Arizona setting is novel for fantasy. Hearne is really funny, but he can also capture a poignant moment, lending the book a touch of gravity that I wasn't expecting and found pleasantly surprising. I devoured this one and went straight through the remaining 3!
Kevin Hearne's writing is witty, creative and speaks to my own snarky sense-of-humor. The narrator, Luke Daniels, enhances the novel and helps make the main character as endearing and sarcastic as he's meant to be. Well done!
Yes, I listen to this series on my long commute to work and I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the car. Traffic was a breeze when listening to this series!
Yes, I would listen to Hounded again. It was a very good story, and there were parts that just cracked me up. I really enjoyed Oberon.
I am not sure which book I might compare this to, but I loved that the setting was present time with th traditions, gods and creatures from history.
I liked Atticus, but I loved Oberon. I felt like Luke Daniels did an amazing job narrating this story.
I loved the relationship between Atticus and Oberon.
Just very entertaining.
This was a truly unique book. Loved the main character, and his dog. Interesting combination of druids, Greek and Roman Gods, wherewolves, vampire (minor character) and witches... in a totally modern setting. I'm looking forward to the next one of the series.
