I am a big urban fantasy fan and I thought I had found all the best stories in the genre. Surprise! The story is very engaging and the main character is very likable. I loved the narrator.
I'm an RN who loves listening to books on my commute in the D.C. area, not too mention at other times if they are really good! There is nothing like a really good book!
When I started listening to the story I wasn't hooked initially. I'm not sure why exactly. Perhaps it is the way the characters are developed... not sure. However, as time went on, I really began to love listening to the story. The narrator does a fabulous job with the accents of various characters, and with Oberon's voice especially. Without this type of narration, I think the story would be good, but definitely missing something important. I think he is able to bring the essence of the author's intent for his story... and now I have bought all three of the audiobooks, and have finished two thus far. I am looking forward to number three!
I listen to a lot of audio books and have found this series (am currently finishing up the third book) to be highly entertaining. The writing is both precise and 'compact' in that there are not a lot of wasted words - every sentence is descriptive and moves the story forward. The main character is interesting, intelligent, witty and very current. Plus, Oberon (his dog) is my new favorite literary character!
I highly recommend all three (if you like this sort of genre).
It's way too short.
What a great book, fast, funny, witty with lots and lots of action.
Loved it, already downloaded the other 2 in the series.
Loved this story! The narrator does fabulously, I don't know how he didn't crack up when he was trying to get through some of the wonderfully witty scenes between Atticus and Oberon, and Atticus and his Irish neighbor lady. Despite the cover art (which looks typical of the recent rash of "romance disguised as supernatural science fiction" books), this is a smart and funny book, lots of world building, and the dialogue shines. Look forward to the next two books.
Loved this one about a modern day druid with a cool dog and attorneys who are a werewolf and a vampire! Can't wait to hear the others in this series.
Great story wonderful characters and Luke Daniels made the characters come alive, I am going download everything he voices.
I love the magical aspects and the character interactions.
Every one with Oberon in it. He is the coolest dog ever.
It made me laugh out loud on the drive to work in the morning
Luke Daniels rocks!
If you want a totally engaging and entertaining read, look no further. The characters are well developed and the story is a fun and exciting ride from start to finish. It has been a long time since a book has so engaged me that I found myself lost in the story, rooting for Atticus, laughing outloud at him and his dog (especially his dog) and looking forward to the next book on pins and needles... I listened to all 3 books in as many days and am now going back to start them all over.
If you like "The Dresden Files" then you will probibly like this one. Less gritty and noir than Dresden, but the same idea. AND Oberon! As another reviewer mentioned talking animals can go horribly horribly wrong. Not so in this case. This one is written very well, caused me several spit takes and strange looks as I laughed out loud while listening on earphones.
The main character can seem a bit flat at times but that is common in the first book in a series. The book is not a deep philosphical treatse it is a light fun Fantasy novel set in the modern day, like Urban Shaman.
A fun and light read for the weekend.
I cant say enough about this book... I thought it was innovative and very well done!!!
I am not sure what else to say.. I could go on and on... but truly it would take weeks ... my husband and I really enjoyed listening to this book
