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!!
This book took me a little while to get into, but when I did, I was hooked. I am an eclectic reader, but avoid romance and was pleased to find this one did not fall into the thinly disguised romance that a lot of this type of fiction has generated. I think the characters could be fleshed out a little more, hopefully this will be so with upcoming books. Plot was a little thin in spots but still an enjoyable read. The performer does not do accents well, but I did not really mind. His portrayal of a dog was humorous to me. I wish you a pleasant few hours listen.
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
I really love this series. It's fast, funny and fresh. Just what I needed. Oh, and it has a talking dog. You're going to LOVE the talking dog.
A fine read with wit and humor. The side conversation with the dog provides some of the best lines in the book. This is light reading with an excellent narration. The mythology is well researched even with the occasional cheap shot at Thor. I thought the lawyers were well and properly portrayed.
I'm not a fan of urban fantasy but I liked this one! The main character is a pleasant guy with its strengths and weaknesses and there's a batch of Celtic gods and goddesses which happen to take a trip to Arizona...
I liked the reading and particularly the way Luke Daniels makes Oberon sound : with an immediacy which allows to feel the lack of reflection in the dog - no second thoughts here.
And that dog is hilarious. I'll have to track down the passage about Mary Poppins turning to the dark side of the Force! it's worth its weight in gold.
Their relation is very sweet. One can feel Oberon is the only character which Atticus feels really attached to after all these centuries of existence.
Its a wonderful tale.
Also if yer in Tempe do try the fish and chips at Rula Bula.
Irish reviwed. Irish approved...
I enjoyed the humor, story line, characters, and the narrator. I would suggest you not compare these books with the Dresden stories, for you would be missing very different nuances and start off on the wrong foot with Mr. Hearne. I am a fan.
