Yes, lots of subtle character relationships, smart writing that engages the listener to enter the complete world and put things together for himself. Fascinating interactions.
The narrator is a nuanced talent. Many characters and they are so well differentiated that it sounds like multiple voices. Smooth and professional presentation.
After several listens I have been impressed by how well the author ties everything together with
I enjoy the magical universe that Devon Monk has set up. She's a clever writer and, while each book answers most of the questions posed, she leaves hints to tantalize the reader to continue reading the lengthy series. The pacing of revelations is good. My problem is with the main character. One of the given parameters is that magic uses the user and there is a physical price to pay for casting spells. Allie (yes, she's coping with memory loss caused by magic) still can't seem to remember to disperse magic when she uses it. She also seems to be too stupid to realize she needs to eat more than coffee and donuts. And doesn't seem to be able to come in out of the rain all the time, either. The narrator has a nice voice but as the tension ramps up, she becomes very whiny sounding rather than the tired/dogged voice I would expect from someone trying to save the world.
Trinity Game was well-plotted, well-paced and contained characters with interesting back stories. I'm happy to see it appears to be the first of a series! Luke Daniels is really a master of dialects and portrays the differing personalities exceptionally well.
Another great addition to the humorous, magical Iron Druid series! Can't wait for the next one.
Unlikeable, self-centered heroine is annoying. And when she hooks up with hero she continually tells him "no" and he doesn't stop. "No" means 'No". I couldn't finish this one and I love her Wallflowers and her Hathaways series.
This third book in the series is a bit more serious as Atticus heads out on a quest to punish Thor for a number of egregious acts done over the years. Atticus is supported by his vampire lawyer and various legendary beings. A good story with lots of intricacies that pull together in the end.
Atticus O’Sullivan, the last Druid, continues with his magical pagan life. Supported by his intellegent wolfhound, Atticus continues to protect the earth. The narrator does a great job of keeping the story humorous and voicing the various characters. This book would be a perfect "beach listen". Lots of fun.
This is the perfect audio for a road trip to the mountains or beach. The Druid protagonist, Atticus O’Sullivan, tries to stay out of the way of various dieties while brewing healthful teas, living the pagan life with his amusing wolfhound, and protecting the earth.
Hearne's cast of characters is interesting and varied but the narrator's voicing of the wolfhound makes him irresistible.
I immediately bought the 2nd and 3rd books when I finished listening to the first one.
