After reading some of the reviews I did not consider buying "Hounded". I completely skipped over this book and bought another author's book. Then I am ashamed to say it was on sale so I thought "why not?".
This book is freaking awesome, I even went on Facebook and liked the author and told him so.
NARRATION COMPLAINTS: Luke Daniels has a dry voice. If I had not heard him narrate a previous book I would completely understand how people are put off by his voice. TRUST ME when I say just push past it. It is like dry humor. It will grow on you and you will be rewarded with a story that keeps you hooked by moving modern day with all folklore characters. Vampires, werewolves, gods, goddess, and last but not least by any means...his dog (Odeon)!
This book had me cracking up that the people around me gave me the "Are you crazy?" look several times and not to say I woke my son up laughing at 1 o'clock in the morning.
This is the second time I have ever wrote this long of a review on a book. That should tell you something right there.
On to the next book!
Truly a wonderful read it kept me engaged and I didn't put this away until it was finished. Concentration was at an all time high so intriguing that the author developed a story so modern and full of history! I loved Oberon and the final moments of the book are worth the entire reading alone.
Don't know. Never read the print version.
Loved the dog. Funny, hungry, and horny. What a great combo.
Don't want to spoil things, but the end battle was great.
I was laughing at the dog parts. I thought it was going to be a little silly, but it was pulled off as being really funny. I liked that.
Please give this audio book a try. I know there's more in the series and I hope the remaining ones are just as good.
I really liked this book. I just downloaded #2 in the series and re-listened to this so I'd be up on the story. The plot was engaging, the orator was excellent, the characters weren't super predictable, and occasionally I snickered out loud at one of the quips in the book. I do believe I'll pickup #3 while the Christmas sale is on.
I am not a fan of fantasy, and the rapid fire reveal of a the many fantasy elements of this book had me worried at first, but the well written, well plotted and sometimes over the top hilarious parts of this book had me hooked pretty quickly. A hilarious dog, vampire and werewolf lawyers that actually earn their pay, and a little old lady that is willing to bury bodies in her backyard for you.... all make it easy to glide through this book quickly and happily.
I listened to this straight through. I was hooked from the opening chapter. So laugh out loud funny at times I'm glad I was alone in my car. Don't know why it took me so long to find this.
About to understand a little. Weird!
Must be a lot of better books. If you enjoy stupid, might be a little fulfilling.
