    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.

    Story

    I absolutely love this series and I've been waiting six months for this book to finally come out. When it finally did I was just a little disappointed at how short it was. The story is great, but I can't quite say it was excellent. I really loved the story and the direction the series is heading into but I just felt like Kevin Hearne was rushing through a few of the key situations that Atticus, Oberon, and Granuaile get themselves into. It can be a long six months for me to wait for the next book.

    "My name is Kvothe. I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep...."

    Story

    this series is really great and in-depth. I listened to both books twice now and that a second listen really helped me connect some dots that seem like they will be very important for the third book. Kvothe's relationship with Denna is so frustrating because he is absolutely clueless about how to further their friendship into something more. There's plenty of action and drama in the book also which just makes it even better. I cannot wait for the next book to come out. Another thing, the books are really long but they're so good that once you're done you'll really wish there was another 20 hours left.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Story

    this series is really amazing in my opinion. There is so much foreshadowing in both of the books in this series. I listen to both of them twice and feel like I can listen to them a third time and still learn something. The narrator does an excellent job as well. The character development of Kvothe is really great. It's really fun listening to all of the havoc that he causes as well as how he gets out of it.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Story

    This is easily one of my favorite series out there. I have listened to the entire series twice and I will probably listen to it again before the next book comes out in about six months. It is so great listening to all of the action and trouble that Atticus gets into. There is also no shortage of humor in this book. The dialogue between Atticus and Oberon is pretty hard to listen to without cracking a grin. Luke Daniels also does an excellent job narrating this book. Listen to this book and you will not regret.
