    Story

    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.

    Nicholas says: "Hooked in an Instant"
    "An absolute must-read - even for non-fantasy-fans"

    Story
    Would you listen to Tricked again? Why?

    Absolutely. I think I missed a few nuances the first time around.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The humor. Kevin Hearne is a funny, funny, funny guy. The glimpse into Navajo traditions was interesting too.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Oberon. Amazing character - and Luke just nails it!


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

    Never Trust a Trickster God.


    Any additional comments?

    This book felt very much like a "bridge" story. The end of the last one, Hammered, was kind of epic, and you knew there were going to be some drastic changes in Atticus' life. Those changes aren't manifested in this book as much as I thought they would be; rather, this felt more like a setup for the next phase in Atticus' very long life - and in the lives of Granuaile and Oberon. That didn't make it any less enjoyable; rather, I'm glad Kevin didn't try to top the "epicness" of the last one. There's a teaser at the end of the book for the next one in the series, due out in seven months (squeeee!), and that teaser confirmed my suspicion. No spoilers, but it's COOL. @kevinhearne, you're my hero :-)
