    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.

    What would have made Trapped better?

    Less comic book action, the entire point to the amazing character development in the series was lost.


    What could Kevin Hearne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I loved the conversations and character development in the series. But that was lost when it turned into Kill Bill meets Die Hard.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    First two chapters... down hill from there.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trapped?

    It was well edited, the premise of the book was the issue. It lost focus and started building toward body count.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a huge fan of the series, and I will continue to be. However, in my mind the series will end at book 4. (This is very similar to the Eragon Series, I didn't even read the final book in that series, although I'm still a fan of book one.)

    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

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

    Yes. While it is not on my top 20 must listen list, it is both an entertaining and rewarding story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Fleet: Dauntless?

    It's a guilty read, no deep thinking required, so its more about the emotions than the memories it creates. It hits all of the right 'guy' buttons.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a simplistic story that has been told before in various forms, but is an entertaining listen and I've downloaded the rest of the series. Highly recommend this series for a 'mulit-tasking' day.... yard work, etc.
