    For a two-thousand-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, his apprentice 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...

    What did you love best about Hunted?

    oberon i love that character he is always a highlight


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

    christopher ragland is a decent reader he works well with the characters and if this was any other series i would be fine with him however as this series on audible was started with luke daniels who is a phenomenal reader who really brought to life the book ragland is a major downgrade so, also he makes oberon sound like scooby doo which is really annoying.


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

    yes i pretty much did the last 3 books i purchased over a couple of days and pretty much hermited myself away till i had finished them lol


    Any additional comments?

    kevin hearne, audible pretty please bring the next one out and onto audible soon

    Eff was born a thirteenth child. Her twin brother, Lan, is the seventh son of a seventh son. This means he's supposed to possess amazing talent - and she's supposed to bring only bad things to her family and her town. Undeterred, her family moves to the frontier, where her father will be a professor of magic at a school perilously close to the magical divide that separates settlers from the beasts of the wild. With wit and wonder, Patricia Wrede creates an alternate history of westward expansion that will delight fans of both J. K. Rowling and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    Alissa doesn’t believe in magic. Her father’s stories about the Hold, a legendary fortress where human Keepers learn magic from the enigmatic Masters, are just that—stories. But her mother insists Alissa has inherited her father’s magical ability, so she must go to the Hold to be trained. On her way, she crosses paths with Strell, a wandering musician from the plains.

    The hard-won battles fought in Imager's Battalion have earned Quaeryt a promotion to commander, as well as an assignment to convince the Pharsi High Council in the nation of Khel to submit to Lord Bhayar's rule, which is key to Bhayar's ambition to unite all of Solidar. Joined by his pregnant wife, Vaelora, who is also Bhayar's sister, Quaeryt leads an army and a handful of imagers deeper into the hostile lands once held by the tyrannical Rex Kharst.

    Lore says: "Quaeryt is promoted and more battles ensue."

    willam dufris is one of the better audio book readers and he always sounds good it makes a book easy to enjoy


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

    yes but that would spoil it for others :)

    Welcome to the world of the Instrumentalities of the Night, where imps, demons, and dark gods rule in the spaces surrounding upstart humanity. At the edges of the world stand walls of ice which push slowly forward to reclaim the land for the night. And at the world's center, in the Holy Land where two great religions were born, are the Wells of Ihrain, the source of the greatest magics.

    What was most disappointing about Kristina Lloyd’s story?

    i love a kinky story but this is just written so poorly any excitement you get from the situations is ruined by the continuous mentions of prophylactics (dont get me wrong i believe books of this kind do need a mention of them somewhere a disclaimer at the beginning or in one scene, but here its very repetitive and distracting) and other superfluous nonsense that the author just has to mention right then also the character come off as crude and stupid a lot of the time its a train wreck of what could of been an alright idea
    one of the few books off here that i couldn't even finish
    on top of that the narrator has an irritating accent that is rather grating when you are supposed to be reading a sexy novel

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    Steven says: "Steven Pacey is magnificient."
    "this is the best epic fantasy ive read in forever"
    Overall

    if you ever get a series off audible get this one!!! joe abercrombies anti heroes are amazing if perfect handsome heroes leave you cold and bore the pants off you his multifaceted characters with their many flaws scars and broken noses add to an amazing world of intrigue magic and corruption which drags you in with 2 clenched fist and you wont want to make it let you go
    i loved it
