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 have a nap.
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.
I'm just an old goat that like magic, dragons, elves, dwarves, wizards and witches. I read for intertainment and like long fast paced books that have just a few central characters....Loved Iron Druid series and Monster Hunter series. I live on a farm in SC and have given all the birds and animals that hang in my yard names and magical powers, and sometimes it seems like they really do.
Yes I would and I'm going to.
These books are just fun to listen to and will keep your attention through out.
All 5 books in this series are great. I recommend to any one that likes Fantasy!!!!!
Get it and enjoy!!
The action is back! Compared to the previous book in the series (which I was a little disappointed in), Trapped had much more action and surprise twists and turns.
Oberon finally getting to talk to Granuaile and then giving her a hard time about her terrible hunting skills! haha I love Oberon.
He convincingly does multiple voices. Often times male actors in audio books don't do female voices very well and it pulls me out of the story. Luke Daniels does all characters perfectly. Especially Oberon.
Nobody puts Atticus in a corner.
This book gets back to what I love about the Iron Druid Chronicles, however that being said, Kevin Hearne will hopefully come up with a new way to introduce conflict into his stories. Every conflict stems from his solution to the previous conflict and a chase ensues in which Atticus out smarts and out fights everyone. I love the books, but something new has got to happen.
Trapped is a quick, fun listen. It's a good light book!
Oberon is my favorite character because of the humor he brings.
Oberon! I love the voice he puts to him.
I didn't want to stop listening! I would take longer walks just to keep listening to it!
After the long wait, I got to finally hear the continuing story of Atticus and Graunuele, but mostly Oberon.
Oberon, Oberon, Oberon, I totally love that dog. Reminds me of my dogs, if they could talk that is. My female is all about them belly rubs.
"Waxing poetically" is another term for running at the mouth for 20 minutes. I found the guys story to be quite long and boring. Sorry, bad with names but when you get to this part, you'll know exactly what I mean.
While the last two books seemed to get a bit bogged down in exposition, Trapped seemed to bring back some of the energy from the earlier Chronicles. More Oberon - always a plus - and Granuaile's training finished between books. (That could have been a HPDH camping nightmare. Yeesh.) As with the rest of the series, Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator.
My reading and listening tastes are eclectic.
Well, the Iron Druid is back. Luke Daniels has become my favorite narrator. Kevin Hearne has written a series that is just excellent, and every new book he has written just builds on the previous books in a positive way. I listened to this the week it came out, and I have listened to it twice since then to just enjoy it again.
