I am always on the hunt for new fantasy series authors to listen to, this is a good one. The Irish theme and crossover is very interesting. I must admit Oberon, the Irish Wolf Hound is my favorite sidekick!
Ideal for a road trip, or another activity that doesn't need full, deep concentration. This is a really fun book, and teens/adolescents/young adults will like it.
Tell us about yourself!
Great opening to the series. The author and the narrator do no take themselves too seriously which allows this book to be fun and memorable.
This book is hilarious. Let me say that again, hilarious! It's a light-hearted tale of swords and sorcery set in modern day Arizona that pits a two-thousand year-old druid against a Celtic God who's out for revenge. The premise may be incredible, but the characters and plot are not. Atticus' voice is snarky and humorous and combines the mundane and the magical in a seamless blend. Bonus points for the narrator who makes the characters and story come alive.
Atticus' dog Oberon was easily my favorite character. He was so expressive and funny.
Luke Daniels makes the dog, Oberon come alive in such a way that I never would have reading the book on my own.
A tale for the ages.
If you're in doubt, get this one!

Actually I did listen to it during a long drive - both directions.
I'm hooked on the series!
It's one of the best. I love a good series, though I sometimes have trouble getting into a book if the setting is unfamiliar to me. The author overcame that fairly quickly by making the opening chapter very interesting.
I would definitely recommend to others who enjoy this genre.
The performance was one of the best ones I've listened to. It was very easy to identify the different characters based on listening to the narrator's voice. This makes it an
Books have replaced TV in my life.
The story had me interested from the first and I loved the narrator.
I haven't read or listened to anything quite like it before - usually I look for a little romance to keep me interested in the characters lives.
His performance made the story listenable. Is that a word?
It was intense with the battles - but I must admit I laughed when 'death' laughed at the irony of the final battle.
I have mixed feelings about continuing with the stories. Love makes the magic work for me and I wonder if it is worth reading further without it.
Interesting, entertaining and funny!
The hound...........all his moments were great!
He is a very talented orator, he brought all the characters to life for me.
This book made me laugh and made me want to hear more of the Iron Druid series!
I wish the book was longer, I enjoyed it that much. I look forward to the rest of the series!
I bought this book for a change of pace and I got it. The story revolves around a druid (the last one, we're told), his relationship with various Celtic gods and the intrigue going on among said gods. The characters include powerful druids, pretty but deadly witches, sort of friendly werewolves, a hilarious wolfhound and a sweet little old Irish lady who is especially sweet to people who kill Englishmen. There's not a blue ton of depth here, but if you're looking for straight-ahead entertainment value, The Iron Druid: Hounded is for you.
