I absolutely love Kevin Hearne's style of writing his series of Iron Druid Chronicles. They are laced with lots of humor that is current as well as "aged," yet the humor doesn't distract from the stories.
When you couple Luke Daniels as the narrator with Hearne's style, it's a perfect match. His voice impressions of each character adds to the humor and it's hard to imagine an Iron Druid story without Luke Daniels as the narrator. Luke Daniels is to Kevin Hearne as George Guidall is to Craig Johnson (Walt Longmire series). To use a different narrator would be very hard to get used to.
If you liked the previous books, you will surely like this one just as well. I just hope Kevin Hearne keeps adding more and more books in this series.
I loved the series the most when Luke Daniels either remembered what each character sounded like and read with enthusiasm and heart instead of whoever is reading now. This guy sounds like a graduate of the talking-head school of elocution with every sentence weighted for posterity. Kevin. . .get Luke Daniels back, please!
I'm not sure I would have read every print book in the series . . . but I was DYING to for each new book in this audible series to become available . . . Kevin Hearne is the best reader. Ever.
This particular book didn't feel finished.
The main character. And then the dog.
I've coached an award winning competitive speech team for 15 years. I use Hearne's voices as examples of character development.
I've got only one word for the author: MOAR!!!
I've got four words for the narrator: DO NEXT BOOK PLEASE!!!
And you can imagine I sound like Oberon if you like. I don't care, so long as you write more!
Iron Druid Chronicles rule!
Once again a wonderful addition to this on going story. My only complaint is that I wish it were longer. It seems like you just get started and it is already ending again. I hope that the next one is coming soon. What a cliff hanger of an ending
The revenge of the dark elves
wonderful narration. I love oberon's voice and comments
I love all kinds of books but don't really read them anymore I would rather listen to them but I will still buy the book if I love it enough to collect it.
If you love books about druids magic and witches I suggest this series to you because it is a wonderful series and I got hooked on the series just by listening to the first 10 mins of the first book and I would definatley say it is in the top 10 list of my favorite books.
I'm what some folks call, "extremely average."
I wasn't prepared for the book to completely skip Grunuaile's training! I spent the first chapter in mild shock over missing 12 years of Atticuses life (hence the 4 star review). But I pretty quickly recovered and moved on, since this was another fabulous Iron Druid story.I was riveted to my speakers right up to the OMG ending! Kevin Hearne has a powerhouse of a series here, and I hope for at least a dozen more stories!

Kevin Hearne does it again. Another great adventure with Atticus O’Sullivan! The only draw back to this audiobook was the fact that Luke Daniels narration sounded different. The voice of Atticus wasn't the same as the previous 4 books. Do I recommend this title? Of course I do! I love the humor and wit Kevin Hearne gives the voice of his characters. Oberon cracks me up. Start with book one if you haven't already. Be sure and warn anyone around you who are unsure you're listening to an audiobook that there may be spontaneous moments of hilarity.
Nothing like someone reading you a story, then having a nap. What a life.
Luke Daniels does a great job in the read of the story.

If they were a fan of the series then yes, but otherwise probably not.
