    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.

    Would you listen to Hunted again? Why?

    I would listen to this over and over. I'm sure it's a fine book on its own but as it fits in the overall story it brought me low and picked me up again. All the humor and action from the rest of the series with a few moments that really pull at the heart strings thrown in. I love this series and this book shines particularly.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Can't pick, love them all.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've heard the whole "Iron Druid Chronicles" but nothing else from Luke Daniels. I promise I will be looking for more of his now though. His performance in Hunted was possibly his best yet and that's saying something.


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

    Yes. I found mindless jobs at work, I cooked, and did the dishes all so I wouldn't be disturbed as I made my way through this book. I'm not proud that I shooed my wife away but some times you just need a moment to appreciate the story. She got diner and a clean sink... It all worked out fine... She was only briefly concerned about the tears. I used onions as my cover.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series. I love this book. Kevin Hearn is great and so is Luke Daniels. Together they are unstoppable.

    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 was one of the most memorable moments of Trapped?

    It was great to see the first fight scene with our newest Druid. It was a great way to show the work of 12 years not written. Perhaps though my favorite woment was when she first went hunting with the boys. My three favorite characters, humor, and both Kevin and Luke Daniels really allow you to feel like you are there with the charecters.


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

    Contact with Gear and when they are working on finishing the tattoos. She wants to drop the facade but he asks, "please, just wait until I finish" (paraphrased). It's not that he didn't love her, it's that their love was strong and they needed to wait just a little longer, finish this one tough task, ensure her safety before he could risk feeling those feelings. And they did wait. Passion is great, but when circumstance force you to hold it in, to wait, that's when you feel everything. The anticipation, the love and concern leading up to the final release.


    Any additional comments?

    Not my favorite "Iron Druid" book and it still gets 5 stars. If that doesn't show a great series I don't know what would

    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....

    What made the experience of listening to Hounded the most enjoyable?

    I wasn't sure what made it so good at first but after listening to several books I think the narrator did a fantastic job. The narrator has a great take on the main charecters sense of humor (which is my other favorite part).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hounded?

    Ghengis Khan... When you hear it, you'll know :)


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    His take on the humor of the author, as I stated before. Also, his take on Auberon reminded me of the much loves "Doug" from the movie UP. Well, a very grown up version of Doug but it worked for me.


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

    "It's time to stop running". "fight or flight... There comes a time when you have to choose" or "just another story about a man and a dog.. And some angry gods, witches, werewolves, vampires and most of all Druids". Honestly I like the second one best though. Or something like that.


    Any additional comments?

    Really, really excellent book with maybe even better narration. It is a great example of why I got hooked on audiobooks.
