Publisher's Summary

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.

With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.

    "Terrific story and looking forward to more books."

    I'm not really in to science fiction, fantasy books, or supernatural subjects. Well, except for Stephen King and Dean Koontz I suppose. But, when I saw Hounded - The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 1 on a list of books that were on sale and read the reviews, I thought I'd give Hounded a try. I loved the book so much that I decided to buy the other two books immediately. That's where Hexed - The Iron Druid Chronicles comes in to play which is the second of three books that are currently found at Audible. My review could apply to the other books equally as well.

    I'm sure glad I bought the first book! With the writing style of Kevin Hearne and the absolute top notch reading by Luke Daniels, this is a book you should not miss. Lots of humor, especially between Oberon and his master Atticus - the last Druid on earth, makes this book and the other two (Hammered and Hounded) three of the best stories I've read..... errr, heard... in a couple of years now.

    I really didn't expect the stories to be as good as they are since I haven't listened to fantasy before, but what a pleasant surprise. You should just go ahead and buy all three books, Hounded, Hexed, and Hammered and read them in that order since the story line will make more sense. Each one can stand on its own as a great read, but reading them in order will make the journey even more pleasant.

    So don't even think about it (as this 62 year old reader did), just go buy the books and enjoy them one after the other. I can't wait for the next book and hope that Luke Daniels continues to narrate the story because he is Atticus, and Oberon, and all of the other character voices that he reads so very well. Absolutely great books!!!

    "Brilliant story and perfect narrator!!!"
    If you could sum up Hexed in three words, what would they be?

    The author has put together a very crafty main character and the narrator's voice has the right amount of irony in it to deliver! The story moves along smoothly. I didn't ever get the impression that he was rushing the story or making


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Atticus without a doubt!


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

    No, but it is worth checking out... his timing and delivery are right on!


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

    YES!


    Any additional comments?

    Have listened to all 3 and can't wait for #4 in April!

    "Best Fun Ever on Audible"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book provided me with a wonderful distraction during the time that I listened to it and the other two books in the series. I could not wait to return to the story and one night stayed up much later than I planned simply listening to the story. I live in the Phoenix metropolitan area and enjoyed all the references to local restaurants and other locations in the book. I must have eaten next to the author given all the times we go to the Irish Pub Rula Bula in Tempe, a location mentioned and beautifully described many times in the book. The fourth book in the series is coming out soon but I discovered tickets to meet the author at Rula Bula's have long been sold out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hexed?

    It is difficult to separate particular events as I listened to all three books sequentially at once. Any moment with spent with Atticus O'Sullivan's


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

    His voice is perfect for all characters both men and women and is ability to perform accents is marvelous. I cannot imagine anyone else doing the voice of the dog Oberon. I am finding it difficult to decide whether or not to read the new book or wait for it to be on Audible.


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

    Included with the wonderful humor and laughter in this story is a very deep well thought out viewpoint of religious concepts-God, gods and goddesses, demons, and the basic tenets of religion cleaverly interwoven together can elicit some moving moments.


    Any additional comments?

    I notice that this book seems to be recommended to younger men. As a 61 year old female I found it one of the best experiences I have had yet with Audible. I would recommend this to anyone of any age that has the capacity to enjoy fantasy.

    "Great Story"
    If you could sum up Hexed in three words, what would they be?

    Imaginative, Exciting, Humorous


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the characters. The characters in the story have the right balance of funny/lightheartedness and serious/tension. Oberon is my favorite character.


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

    I've listened to all the Iron Druid books. I think he does a fantastic job in all of them. Great narration!


    Any additional comments?

    I've gone though the mistborn series, the kingkiller chronicles, the song of fire and ice, and lots of other fantasy series. I think this one is my favorite!

    "Extreme Entertainment!"
    Would you listen to Hexed again? Why?

    Again, and again! Luke Daniels is wonderful and gave every character a life of its own. Especially Oberon, Atticus' Wolfhound. Most of the time, I almost laughed right out of my chair. The book is so well written and Luke reads it so well, I have told all my friends it is a must read or listen.


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

    It is a huge toss up...Oberon, Atticus, Leif...they are all great.


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

    Most definitely!
