A very light and easy to listen to fantasy. If you are a dog person, the dog's comments and views are worth the listen alone.
The narrator was great, the story was great, the characters were good. I had a lot of fun listening to this one and the ending was just fantastic. For comparison, I found the writing style to be a less alien Gaiman; that is, the gods tend to be less bizarre and instead merely ancient and thus a product of their age. I fully intend to read the rest of this series.
Yes, the narrator is talented. I loved how he made all of the characters come to life.
Atticus's explanation of other life forms to the widow.
No, Mr. Daniels is an excellent narrator. His voice is captivating. I would love to hear more of his work. He is the male Loreli King.
Yes, the writer created a fantasy with a seamless storyline that held my interest.
I can't wait until the next installment, Tricked, is available through Audible.
Luke Daniels does a great job putting soul and depth behind each person's dialog, giving you a true sense of listening to real people and different people throughout the book. The story, while predictable, is still fun, witty, and a laugh. The mixture of witty remarks, and timing of Luke, make Kevin Hearne's Chronicles a must listen for anyone who is even a slight nerd of the fantasy genre. As said in the book, "Monty Python quotes will... make them loose their nuts.."
The witty remarks by the wolf hound to help break the book up from its serious nature, which is a constant theme in the book. Even while reading it, the main character doesn't even take himself serious, which makes this all the funnier, and easier to read.
Its worth the listen if you are a fan of anything slightly nerdy. Its fun and quick, and will make you laugh out loud in many places. You find yourself rooting for the heroes, even though the villains are not well rounded, and more mellow dramatic than anything. But an hour in, I had already bought the rest of the released series.
I was skeptical I admit-a Druid? But this book was really entertaining and I became hooked and listened to the rest of the series in short succession. I can't wait until the 4th book now and am in Atticus withdrawal. Do yourself a favor and get this book.
Excellent narration. The action scenes are exciting, the humor is laugh out loud funny.
The dog, the narrator does a fantastic job.
Keep them coming. I love these books.
sly humor and an easy going narrator, a little too casual sometimes
probably, its not great literature, but its a fun listen, and a good way to get a break from heavier stuff
comic timing, and a kind of surfer dude sarcastic tone that can be fun to listen to
not sure, haven't finished yet
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.
