Book Addict and a Fantasy Fanatic!
Kevin Hearne has exceeded my expectations for a good writer. He is not just good. This story puts him on the next level. I don't know exactly what that is... but he is there. When I think of the amount of research he must have done... Wow. He has proven his ability to mix and match these ancient characters into a "believable" story that doesnt come across as tacky or stupid. It's quite entertaining.
Now to the story ... at this point I will assume if you are interested in this book then you are familiar with the series. So I will proceed with that in mind. This 6th book of the series is the best in the overall categories. It isn't the funniest or the most action packed but it has all of it in the right ratio. I'm emotionally destroyed about the fate of the Morrigan and there damn well better be a better explanation later in the series. I don't like that the love interest of our Druid was so normal and predictable. This is a 2000 year old Druid in the world of Gods and Demons, yet he falls for a pretty bartender who is a goodie-2-shoes who annoys me as much as Anastasia in 50 Shades of Grey. That's actually who she is... gosh she is awful. She wants to be a Druid but she only wants the good stuff where she plays with the elementals and sleeps in a meadow.
Why couldn't he have loved the Morrigan?
I'm enjoying this series for the 2nd or 3rd time, and it's just as delightful this time around. Hunted is an epic story with plenty of danger and destruction - the Druids are certainly busy trying to stay one step ahead of their foes. Luke Daniels' narration get even better with each book in this series - he does a great job with the women's voices, and his Oberon is brilliant and endearing. This novel is a great example of the synergy created by an excellent, well-crafted story matched with a talented narrator.
Wonderful, ingenious, creative. As always, I was laughing out loud and couldn't wait to hear more. very situation is crazy but the solutions are believable. And of course, Oberon is my favorite!!
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
Some sense of humour added into a rollicking good ride. They remind me of the Dresden Files. These books won't stretch your grey matter but they are fun.
available to be chosen but not obligatory.
according to the definition I found online, this is the opposite of optional. I like leaving positive reviews, but I have neither the time, nor the inclination to wax poetic... unless I'm beginning a snide arse.
