This was a true amazing modern fantasy book! Excellent opening that drew you in and kept you hooked with action humor and great references. It gave a new look at an often over looked mythology and did a jaw dropping good job with the Gaelic phrases and names.
Short mythological fun
Oberon and his obsessions.
No I have not but he does such a GREAT job in this book.
The single basic concept inherent in this series of books, that all the
It's entertaining and very much a keeper
The story is great and the narrator (Luke Daniels) was SO natural and entertaining to listen to. I listen to many audiobooks (while I am working and also for relaxation) and this book had many characters totally identifying by voice and accent and I loved the hound.
yes. It was fun, the narrator's voice for the dog was hilarious.
Hard to say, the main character was very cool. I liked the little old lady in the village, I could identify with her....
Yes, I would listen to this book again. The dog is the best charater in this series. He is really very funny.
This series is very much of the genre I like to listen to and read. I prefer almost all the books I purchased regarding magic, esp, or paranormal. This book is comparable to the Sookie Stackhouse series and just as funny.
I think that Luke Daniels did a great job and really brought the charaters to life.
I did listen to this and the other books in one sitting.
Perhaps - in a couple of years. It was immensely entertaining, and the references (although dated) would still make anyone who lived through the 90s and 00s laugh.
Monster Hunter International - Faeries (/Monsters) are real, and they are a real B. That pretty much sums up both series of books, and the humor is pretty congruous.
Oberon the dog. The right combination of lovable and dependable. Perfect.
It definitely made me laugh uproariously two or three times. More than most books, I have to say.
When first listening to this book, I got about an hour in then put it down for a number of months. Simply put, it requires a leap of faith pretty much immediately, and I sadly wasn't able to make it the first time. Fantasy set in the modern context is very difficult for me to get into, and I suspect it's the same for a lot of other dyed-in-the-wool fantasy lovers.
The writing, however, which is in many ways a tad unpolished, makes up for itself in its sheer blunt and brutal force. Both combat and comedy are treated with all the elegance of a spaghetti western, and you quickly learn to love it. Definitely an unexpected gem - and to round out the cliches, sets itself up as a diamond in the rough for what is sure to be an enthralling series.
The narrator, Luke Daniels, although a tad samey in some of his performances, delivers with the level of gusto and bravado essential for this novel. An excellent job all round.
Just about everything. Poorly written and read.
Jonathan Maberry, Simon R. Green or Jim Butcher
Maybe added a little more life or spark to the narration.
Disappointment and boredom
This book ranks around the middle of the pack in my listening experience. It moved quickly and was an entertaining listen. I bought it to try out the series and was priced right.
The final fight scene with the werewolves, witches and Atticus's arch enemy was pretty good
Although I rarely listen to an audio book in one sitting I did go through this one in three days.
Entertaining short listen
the characters, the old lady, the dog, their dialog was great!
The casualness of the old lady to what was taking place around her..
He had a young voice of someone the age of the druid. How he made the dog sound was hilarious and of course, the old lady. All of his characters were great. I've already listened to the second one and will purchase the third in the series. I hope they keep coming.
I always enjoy it when books portray magic in inventive ways, ways that make it believable, but still magical, and the druidic powers and magical lore in hounded fit in perfectly, which is particularly hard to do in an urban fantasy book. Anyway, the story's good, the performance is great, and the jokes are extreamly clever and outright hilarious. This book is awsome, period.
