I would rank Hex fairly high on my must listen books. I will definitely listen to the next book in the series to come out.
The dog, Oberon, provides comical commentary through out the series and definitely produces the more memorable moments in the story. His commentary encompasses every topic from bacon latte's to Star Trek and back again to a harem of poodles.
Luke Daniel does a great reading including multiple voices for different characters.
This is a light hearted fantasy book full of modern day humor. The story touches on some history in form of bath time stories for the main character's (Atticus) dog (Oberon). I would put the book in the same category as Jim Butcher's Dresden Series. The story is a little predictable in the regard of most fantasy genre books. The good guy wins with only the loss of few minor characters. The fictional world is full of typical fair; vampires, werewolves, fairies, and gods. Overall the book is a thoroughly enjoyable listen.
A great performance never though I would start looking for books based on the performance and not author, subject or story.
I listen to books while I run, and this series gets me excited to lace up every day! I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys various cultures mythologies. These books are witty and compelling, and they make my miles go by too quickly!
Luke does voices well and you are never left guessing who is speaking. I think this is a talent that cannot go overlooked in a narrator. His take on voices often makes me laugh out loud.
I haven't read the print version. BUT I feel Luke Daniels does such an amazing job of voice acting each character, I can't imagine even the voices in my head being this good!
I see it as a book akin to any of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series.
The showdown with the 80s german rocker witches was pretty great!

Yes I would, the audio version with the character voices create a vivid landscape that allows the minds eye to follow the story almost like sitting in front of a television.
Oberon would have to be my favorite character, the witty remarks made by this Dog got me laughing more than once.
Yes, I have listened to the whole series, Got hooked on the first book of the iron druid chronicles, and have enthusiastically followed the whole series.
I laughed quite a bit while listening to this book. Without the comic relief this book would have been much harder to listen to.
This series is without doubt one of my favorite, my many thanks to Luke Daniels, I have become a huge fan of his work, I especially like how he has found a way to work known mythology into a believable story line. The new way to look at old "mythological heroes" has opened my eyes to realizing that some old preconceptions about characters who generally get cast in a favorable light need not necessarily be conceptualized that way. Casting Thor as a bad guy along with the rest of Asgard was a brilliant move.
I find it hard to wait for the next book in the series, I hope this series continues for a long time. There is much back story to be told yet, and some of the characters such as the witches coven, or the wolf pack, and even the story of some of the elemental's, could have their own series of books.
Thank you so much Luke Daniels for creating a character that I can connect with after listening to this book, I am even more proud to have Irish blood.

Action, page turning, engaging!
The imagination of Kevin Hearne is incredible. Every part is riddled with mystery, magic, action, and fantasy
I love the way the characters are growing, and progressing
The narration is spot on! Luke Daniels is Atticus for sure!
Having a male lead in this role was such a nice change of pace!
The layering of plots and charters and the way it came together cohesively.
His Irish Wolfhound
Not as much as the third one
Yes. G vs. E with humor
Yes. I am on book # 4 in the series. I like his voice for this series.
The presentation of this book is excellent, as is the whole series
The journey with the druid
Luke Daniel's performance is one of the better of any other Audible book. He has a gift in portraying each character.
Good action story
The fight against a coven of German witches
The book didn't make me laugh or cry.
This is the 2nd boook in the series that I have read. His relationships with his dog, a werewolf, a vampire (both his 24/7 lawyers), his apprentice and a coven of witches are aspects I am looking forward to hearing develop. I am not a big fan of sword and sorcery, but this is a normal life with a smidgeon of the supernatural to add the spice of adventure - a good read.
