My husband and I and our 14 year old grandson are enjoying this series together. Love Oberon.
A fast moving tale of a modern day druid dealing with ancient threats. Atticus,slogs his way thru ancient gods and evil witches with style and a rather snarky wit. Rife with some fun pop culture references, it's a great modern take on the typical fantasy read. My favorite part is the faithful wolfhound, Oberon, which the narrator brings to life with perfection!
What an entertaining book. The many references to modern culture, the slang, and the occasional bit of foul language, all had me laughing out loud. This is escapism at it's very finest.
Listens to audiobooks while travelling to and from various countries in Europe.
This is one of the most enjoyable audiobooks I have listened to. The story is okay but no award winner by any stretch of the imagination. Still the story is entertaining enough.
The narration of Luke Daniels and humour in this audiobook really sells it. On the basis of this audiobook I've listened to the other books as well, and though they are also very good, this book is the best of the series so far. The dog was without a doubt the real star of the book.
The book is well paced, very clear, very easy to listen to when travelling or at home. As a fan of the genre I'd say this is one of the better books you can buy.
Very humerous and action packed! A great listen for any audience...
Oberon the dog - His thought process is simple like that of a dog but also complex and humerous!
This series is just excellent! I loved the narrator and the story especially the dog!
Atticus is such a great guy and I love the dog Oberon, the whole tale was excellent.
All of the characters were excellent, but I think Oberon was the best.
I really enjoyed listening to the story and loved the reader Luke Daniels
I want to hear more of these ones!
Absolutely, already have recommended it to several of my friends. Great story, perfect timing, and read beautifully.
Had to laugh every time his hound spoke.
The writer has used celtic history and modern slang in such a way that it continually surprizes and delights. A druid that is over two thousand years old has a "new age" shop in a college town in America. From the first chapter where he feeds a couple of fairies to an elemental you know this isn't going to be your average fairy tale. (The fairies were attacking him.) I love the voice of the dog, an Irish wolfhound, in this book. The narrator gets the voices of all the characters so distint and perfect. I don't think I'd enjoy reading this book, but I loved listening to it.
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!
