Being a Harry Dresden fan I really enjoyed "Hounded" and found the similarities and differences in the worlds of these two series to be interesting. I love the characters, especially that of Oberon which had me chuckling aloud every now and then. Like others have commented, my only reservation was that I wish the book had been longer because it's one of those where you're not ready for it to end. I'm off to get the next in the series and will hope to see more.
I bought this based on the reviews, and am 3/4 through it. Pity it's so short.
Others have it right: if you liked Dresden, you'll really like this as well. The author is clever and the narrator is great.
For the record, I've been an Audible member for around 14 years, and probably have 250 unabridged titles in my library, around 200 of which I have "read."
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
I have been reading some serious fantasy for a while now (Jordan, Martin, Sanderson) and then accidently listened to a really bad one (Luck in the Shadows). Then I found Hounded. I have not laughed out load listening to a story in long time. Thoroughly enjoyable, witty and totally different from my usual meals. If you want a really nice desert, I recommend Hounded.
Truly entertaining and wonderfully narrated. I seriously laughed out loud several times, drawing stares from the customers at work.
This book was just great. Great story, great characters, great narration. Another reviewer compared it to the Dresden files, which is a good comparison. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series.
A fun, easy read. Atticus is a great fellow to follow and he is surrounded by amusing characters. You won't find any deep meanings in the text, but if you want a fun urban fantasy you won't be disappointed by this book.
If you enjoy Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden novels, you will enjoy this book.
I picked up this one just on the description not expecting alot but hopeful. I love all of the paranormal and magical themed books, so I gave it a shot. I am so glad I did. Not only does Hearne write an engaging tale, he also makes it fun and full of mythic characters in modern times. I love the character, the plot and the writer. I hope he has many more stories to come in this series or any others. Hearne is one to watch for. Just Awesome!
I loved this book. Loved the reader. Can't say enough good things about it. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out on audio.
I loved this book. It has great characters and a storey line that never gets boring. The main characters sense of humour and his dog oberon had me laughing out loud. I highly recommend this book.
