Atticus is so likable and I do like Granuaile's zest for life and learning.
I listened to the other books and was pleasantly surprised I have other books waiting for me in my library that he narrates.
I absolutely love all the characters and the relationships between Atticus and each one of them. I simply love Oberon and the Widow MacDonagh. The wit and sarcasm of the characters makes these books fun to read.
This series keeps calling me back! I love mystical creatures in both normal imagined worlds and this cute Druid is so interesting!
I truly enjoy this series and I really truly enjoy the audio version. Luke Daniels is excellent. I highly recommend all of these books.
I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!
Wouldn't know as I've not read the printed version.
Honestly couldn't compare it to any other book for it is unique compared to most books I've read. Outside of books I might say its comparable slightly to the TrueBlood TV series due only to character association. Basically meaning that any mythical creature Vamps, wolves, gods, Druids, witches, demons etc are all alive & well & possibly living right next door to you!
Personal opinion would be Luke Daniels brings life & personality to the characters with his Voices & the way he narrates the story. The Iron Druid is a great idea a well thought out & written series! With that said I believe that Luke Daniels brings a certain something to every book he narrates, his reading style & voice over for Characters allows the listener to easily identify who's speaking, what's going on & makes immersion into the world of the Iron Druid all that much easier.! My applause to Kevin Hearne on a masterpiece of a series as well as a great choice of narrator by choosing Luke Daniels to breathe Life into Mr. Atticus O'Sullivan & The Trusty wise cracking WolfDog By the name of Oberon. I'm sure narrators like artists fetch varied commissions for their work. One one end you may have Myself who would be the equivelant of a child's finger painting, having hard time giving the finished product away all the way up to Luke Daniels being the equivelant of a Picasso or Micheal Angelo capable of a Masterpiece.! I appreciate Hearnes Love of his series & his insistence on having it one of the Best in the Buisness narrate it into a reality.! Bravo!
No spoilers, this series has moved me in many ways as I've finished book 6 prior to writing this, its been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. Happiness, sadness, fear, anticipation, confusion, anger, frustration so on & so on.! The point being this: The pairing Of Hearnes story telling abilities with Daniels Narration Skills allows, NO leaves you helpless to not become emotionally involved with these Charactors, rooting for your favorites & against those you've villianized.! I find myself upset there isn't another book to move onto.!
Said it before & Ill say it once more risking seeming like I have a "Man Crush" or something.! That isn't the case at all...! Hahaha its more that Ive been listening to audio books nonstop since finding Audible some 2 years or so ago. During which time Ive gone through possible close to 400 books. Some have been good, some have been ok.. Some have been bad & then some Horrible. I've heard great stories Butchered by cheap, half effort editing & Narration? then Mediocre stories made much better with Top Notch narration.! Then every once and a while I find the perfect combo of Story writer & Narrator which together creates "The Perfect Storm" & Like Peanut Butter & Jelly when they get together you end up with something Classic.! Something that will never get old no matter how much you have of it.! Its Satisfying & you want more & more, can't get enough.! Thanks to both Hearne & Daniels for a superb job throughout this entire series!
Fan of mystery & romance -- particularly of historical persuasion!"
Kevin has done a terrific job with these books, and Luke Daniels does an amazing job with the narration! My husband and I both strongly recommend this one!
Immigration lawyer in Kansas City. I like Character driven dramas, fantasy (monsters, magic and witches oh my!) and coming of age stories. Favs include: The Book Thief, The Game of Throne series, Harry Potter Series, Dresden Files, Nightside series, anything by Neil Gaimen, 100 Years of Solitude.
I can't say enough great things about this series. It is creative, it has supernatural fantastic-ness, werewolves, and vamps and witches oh my. And a talking dog, who happens to be my favorite character. I can't wait to listen to more. I love the narrator too.
Yes, it's always good to read book 3 before 4 and after 2 LOL!
If it's Iron Druid then yes, I'm new to listening to his stories but so far I love the dry sense of humor and characters so I would be open to other series of his.
"Bacon Lattes? Why haven't you served me one?" "Because they don't exist!""Yes they do, you just mentioned it so there for they do exist! Werewolves exist, vampires exist so then Bacon lattes exist! Let's go to Starbucks and get one RIGHT NOW!"
Yes and b/c I'm not too happy with the cliffhanger ENDING!!! Warning! Get book 4 to immediately read (listen to) after 3, it's a shocker!
I lost focus on some of it just b/c it wasn't keeping my attention and the traveling before the battle went on too long in my personal opinion while shoving other new characters in to the mix to where I would have to back up a few times to figure out who XYand Z were again but mainly those that you already know and the lightening God are the important ones anyways so don't be discouraged to the point of skipping or giving up on it b/c it does have vital information and funny stuff to continue on the journey with Atticus!
Mom of 3 saved by her audiobook addiction!
I enjoy getting to know the characters a little more with each book. Atticus is one of my favorites. Definitely read from the beginning.
Quirky and funny. Luke Daniels does a great job narrating! The whole series is fun and has all the usual supernatural suspects. Definitely worth the credit.
