    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.

    Where does Trapped rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have greatly enjoyed this series. It has other beings like werewolves, and vampires oh my. It has a quirky sense of humor that had me literally laughing out loud as I drove.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I absolutely love the apprentice. (can't spell her name because I've only heard it, not read it). However, Oberon has to be my favorite. I love how he has grown as a character, with a much greater vocabulary.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices! I know who is speaking by his portrayal.

    When mechanic and shapeshifter Mercy Thompson attempts to return a powerful Fae book she'd previously borrowed in an act of desperation, she finds the bookstore locked up and closed down. It seems the book contains secret knowledge - and the Fae will do just about anything to keep it out of the wrong hands.

    I "accidentally" bought this book for my daughter when it first came out because she was a Twilight fan. She refused to read it, so I did. I loved it! Now that the movie is about to come out, I wanted to re-read it, but my sit down time is limited. I do drive a lot, though, so I got the audio version. I was not disappointed. Good performance. Good listen. Great story. Highly recommend it. Nothing like Twilight. Plenty of action, great plot.


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

    No. Too long. But I did it over 4 days while driving or cleaning my house.

Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    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?

    I have thouroughly enjoyed these books. I bought the first one on sale and then had to have the rest. There is a fifth book in the series. Now I need to know when it will be available.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character development is wonderful. I love the dog's voice. I have always spoken to my dogs and get answers from them, so it works for me.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Everything.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sometimes I laughed and sometimes I shed a tear. Which makes it a perfect book for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I want the fifth volume ASAP please!

    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....

    Where does Hounded rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love a book with Duids, Vampires, Werewolves and such. Well written. Well performed. Hooked on some Kevin Hearne and his stories. Just bought the whole series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hounded?

    I love how the ancient one uses modern colloquialisms. It works for me.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    His fairly deadpan performance is perfect. It wouldn't work for me if he read in a more dramatic, high energy way. It just is what it is.


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

    Yes. I was driving, so I almost accomplished that.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Completely Smitten to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version so I can't compare.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I don't think there is one, but more the interaction between Kevin and Haley.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    I've heard her work before and enjoy it. She portrays 'quirky' very well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was aware of how sometimes even the smallest of decisions can impact a life in a big way. I could also understand just how Kevin felt in the bar...cranky at what was happening in the bar.
