Luke Daniels does and excellent job of bringing the various characters to life, various being the key word - everything from a druid, vampires, werewolves, witches, police detectives, to an Irish wolfhound. I always knew who was speaking. He also does a great job of pronouncing all the various druidic and Norse names and places.
The diverse characters and the author's knowledge of the mythologies.
Dynamic storyline which was easy to follow yet has a complex plot with twists.
Fight scenes, witty comments, pop-culture refrences.
Consistent voice, really lures you into the story and keeps you engaged. Never gives off the vibe of being monotone or boring.
Comedy, Romance, Thriller, Mystery, Everything.
Great book, enjoyed the 3rd book in this trilogy and I'm looking forward to the 4th book.
The main character sounded HOT, and the character of Oberone was classic.
Love the story
the previous ones
Good free time burner and waste time while driving

Oh Yes, my mind is not as quick as Luke Daniels
I love the word play.
His funny witty voices.
When is the next book coming out?
yes, the story comes to life.
The tye in to the first book.
I am looking foreward to book three.
This was a great sequel to the first book. I'm on the 4th book now and I am hoping they'll be more. The story is extremely well written. And I haven't heard a better narrator yet. Highly recommend this series.
He does a fantastic job seperating the characters with different voices and is consistent with his use of voices and characters throughout the entire 4 book series. I will be looking for more books narrated by Mr. Daniels
I laughed on several occassions, especially between the inter-actions between Atticus and his dog Oberon
Great Series hoping it continues with a book 5 and beyond. Definately a worthy purchase
In a genre swamped with books about vampires, werewolves, fey and wizards it was delightful to run across this entertaining series that follows the adventures and misadventures of the last Druid. Atticus was lived more than a thousand years blending into the regular mortal world, avoiding both attention and attack from various groups and individuals who feel that even a single surviving Druid is one too many. Peacefully running his occult book shop in the desert Southwest, he uses the power he can draw from the earth to heal both the land and some people who need help. He has successfully avoided notice. That is, it has been successful until the local coven of witches send hexes flying and deities from a variety of cultures start complicating Atticus' peaceful life he enjoys with friends and his faithful (and conversational) Irish Wolfhound.
While this book is engaging and often humorous as Atticus tries to solve problems without getting even more unwanted attention, perhaps the most entertaining part is having a variety of gods and goddesses from different pantheons show up complicating his life. The author has done his research so that these magically/spiritually powerful characters are recognizable from fragments of remembered mythology. Even with his Druidic Atticus has a tough time dealing with the Celtic goddess of death!
Luke Daniels brings a great sense of timing and a sure feel for comic effect to reading the book. Even with a large collection od characters to portray, it's easy to recognize which of them is talking.
It didn't bring me to hysterical laughter, but I often was so amused I chucked....and I was never bored!
