I'm an instructor in the business college at a university in the Pacific Northwest. Enjoy hard scifi and books about how the brain works.
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.
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
I like mysteries (particularly British ones, historical fiction and nonfiction, science fiction and fantasy.
I'm not sure if I liked the book or the narrator better. In my experience it is not easy for a male to do female voices. Lots of times they get overplayed. But Luke Daniels in this unabridged production of Hounded does an excellent job of portraying all of the characters. His characters appear to be understated which counteracts that somewhat overblown plot involving a 2100 year old druid, his Irish Wolf hound, a coven of Polish witches, a pack of werewolves, a vampire, and assorted Celtic gods and goddesses.
Atticus O'Sullivan, the above mentioned Druid, has made a peaceable life for himself in Arizona where he owns a small shop selling herbal teas and books on mystic subjects. Then one day the Morrigan in her battle crow shape blows into his shop and things quickly become a lot less peaceable. Atticus had in the distant past earned the undying enmity of Angus Og the celtic god of Love (don't think Cupid) when Atticus manages to make off with a magic sword that Angus Og himself wanted. Now Angus is making a major push to get it back-- as well as create a conflict among the Tuatha Dé Danann.
One thing I really liked about the narrator was his ability to use the sometimes tongue twisting names of the characters with a confidence that made me feel that he was doing it correctly even if he wasn't. Actually, from my experience reading books from the Celtic revival of the late 19th and 20th century, he was doing pretty good with the Celtic ones.
It took me long enough to getting around to listening to this one, but I'm definitely going to pick up the other two both available from Audible read by Luke Daniels.
I like urban fantasy and this one is great. Love the narrator and his Oberon voice. Enough subtle humor to make it a pleasure to listen to.
I love Druid stories and this is an exceptional piece. I look forward to the rest of the series!!
