    After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave. Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief.

    Normally after the 2nd or 3rd book in a series I get bored. Not so with Iron Druid. Great story with plenty of humor.

    In that first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war.

    Story

    Fantastic! All of the characters from the first book are back, and very well developed. I mean who wouldn’t want to be a part of Bridge Four!! So glad Lopen was back- he kills me! Each main character has some flaws they try to work through- which I like. The story is incredible. I also liked the little girl that is in one of the interludes – she is “awesome” and very funny too.
    The book has a wonderful mix of chivalry, social inequality, anti-slavery, class envy, warfare, and just the right bit of humor and romance.
    I couldn’t ask for anything else from this book. Some events I certainly saw coming, but others were a complete surprise.
    I will pre-order the next book.

    For a 2,000-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt - Artemis and Diana - for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is...run like hell.

    Great book. Thought I'd start getting tired of the series - but Hearne kepps growing the series like a family. The next one in the series is gonna be awesome - we get to see how Oberion relates to new girlfriend - a grand father type - and the Irish are taking Atticus back into the fold. I will definately buy the next one that comes out.

    In a time long forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons off balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. As the cold returns, sinister forces are massing beyond the protective wall of the kingdom of Winterfell. To the south, the king's powers are failing, with his most trusted advisor mysteriously dead and enemies emerging from the throne's shadow.

    What made the experience of listening to A Game of Thrones the most enjoyable?

    It filled in the gaps that HBO left out. HBO followed book pretty close, but listening to the audiobook filled in a bit of the history and increased the depth of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    tyrion lannister then jon snow. How can you not just love the dwarf?


    What does Roy Dotrice bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Great narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    HBO- bad question


    Any additional comments?

    2-credits is steep. I'll probably switch to the LOR series now that it is out and wait to see if song of fire and ice drops in credits.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great book that combines humor, thriller and fantasy. Dog lovers will have a special place for this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tricked?

    coyote. He's not really a bad guy, kinda like a helpful neighbor who gets under your skin at times.


    What about Luke Daniels???s performance did you like?

    Excellent. Did notice a bit of a vocal change for Oberon this time. No biggy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    great series.
