Among the top.
Atticus, his reactions to the world around him is just HIlerious thoughts and actions.
He does the voices in such a realistic manner I forget its audio and can simply slip into my imagination and picture everything in my head.
Laugh, curse, rant, lol you name it.
Read the book, your life will be just a bit brighter for just having the story in your head. :)
I have read and listened to all of the Iron Druid series books. This book is the weakest. Quite frankly, I had a difficult time getting to the end. The culture references are getting old, and his eco-preaching is tiresome. Oberon's input is getting harder to like.
Luke Daniels is an excellent narrator. However, he has changed his rendering of Oberon in this book, so Oberon sounds more like Scooby Doo. Not a good change.
I got really, really tired of the interaction between Atticus and Oberon.
I hope the next book is better - I will be checking it out of the library, though - just in case.
Yes, I love listening to Luke Daniels.
I like the interaction between Atticus and Coyote.
I loved it when Oberon asked Atticus to introduce him as Snuggle Pumkin, so he could conduct his experiment.
I laughed several times. Mostly when Oberon is involved. I found myself holding my breath when Atticus had his throat ripped out and almost died.
I recommend the Iron Druid Chronicles to everyone! I am hooked.
I love SciFy and Fantasy Novels History is my second love especially the Dark ages through the Renaissance and The American Civil War
This is another very well performed installment of the Druid Chronicles.
Filled with enough wit and wisdom to make all fans laugh and go hmmmm.
I only wish they would come out faster. I simply cant get enough of AttIicus!
Every book in this series has been an enjoyable listen. Plenty of magic, & wizardry afoot. Folklore, vampires. where wolves, witches, fairies, Native American & Old Norse gods & kick ass fun. The hilarious dialogue between Atticus, and his dog Oberon alone is worth a listen. Many people compare the series to the "Dresden files." I couldn't get through the first book of that series.
I have rented over 250 audible books. This author is one of my 2 favorite authors. I was putting his books in my top 10 but with 4 books now and another one coming I am not sure which one to drop from the top 10 so that all of his can be added - maybe up it to my favorite 11.
Action, believable characters, humor - these books have it all. In general I do not like books with too much humor but I love them.
Please let the next one be published soon.
I like fantasy, I like suspense but I love the Iron Druid Chronicles. Excellent books paired with excellent narration brinks the characters to life. Like I said to my friends: If you hate to laugh, read and life in general this book isn't for you. Otherwise you should read or listen to it.
I would put "Tricked" on par with Frank Muellers narrations of the Dark Tower series.
I really haven't read any other books like it. Suspense and comedy with a fair dose of kick-ass.
I have listened to all of the Iron Druid Chronicle-books and they are all top notch.
Yes and no. You don't want the book to end but you still can't turn it off.
I love this series. I enjoy how Hearne can meld mythology and paranormal and produce a fairly seamless storyline. I am sad that Atticus has left his old life and in turn those who were left standing at the end of Hammered. Hearne creates great characters. I am glad that they included an excerpt from the next book, so I know what to look forward to- I was hooked after just a few lines. November seems too far away to have to wait. Luke Daniels is excellent and I have purchased a few other books he has narrated.
Yes, I will probably listen to the whole series again.
What doesn't I like?
one thing I will drag out is the insight into the Navajo mythology.
One of the the best thing about this series is that we get a small insight into different mythologies. Especially relative unknown like Navajo and Celtic (Irish) tho. the more common known Norse also plays a big part in the overall story thru. the books.
I have listen to all the books in the series and Luke Daniels's performances is just as good as in the other books. He really gives the characters life. .
moved me hmmm.. it's strong words. there is a moment were I feared that someone might have died, which scared me a bit. (won't go into details) But mostly I just sit with a big smile on my face.
The only bad thing about this book feels so short. The pace of the story makes time fly and I had to stop listen a few times just to make the book last a bit longer because you just want to keep listening. And if that's not enough, then you get a sneak peak on the first chapter of the next book in the end and it just make the waiting time for book 5 even more painful.
