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.

With this the 2nd book in the series the world expands and the story, writing and telling get better. As a fan of Jim Butcher, I agree that these books echo some likeness to the Dresden Files, but the humor is different and this world has a lighter and sometimes more laid back feel to the main character. Guess this happens when you are this old, and have probably seen it all, several times. I am enjoying the Series very much and look forward to more from this author and narrator.
I like the book. It is a good continuation of the first with the same characters and a few new one. I just love Oberon. The story is good, keeps you want to come back for more. I you are into this type of stories, you will love it.
Atticus has a good sense of humour. But with Oberon, they are the best.
Very good. The voice change and the way he does the book is very good. He is among the better narrators
I have read the 3 books and just can wait for the 4th.
Absolutely. The numerous historical references to events, characters, and places keep you on your toes; the dialogues between the druid and his dog are so funny they’re worth a second listen.
The Iron Druid series reminds me of the Harry Dresden series: lots of action, excellent running commentary, and very funny. Also with an excellent reader.
The tone, the pace, the voices (the dog!). Excellent timing.
Should a druid offer tea, coffee or beer to gods showing up at his door?
Can’t wait to read more in the series.
I am really enjoying Kevin Hearne's books and the narration by Luke Daniels. I have listened to each book twice so far. Still get a chuckle in parts, still engrossed in the story.
I laughed out-loud and with some embarrassment. I was reluctant to like this series as I am a devout Jim Butcher- Harry Dresdan fan. Kevin Hearne with the help of Luke Daniels have caused me to unfaithfully dream of Atticus O'Sullivan -the Red Headed Druid as my magical savior, should I be set upon by the demons of hell, witches, or a nosey neighbor. The character is funny and cleverly written. Lots of myths and fairy lore explained through out much like Butcher's Dresdan, but with a unique celtic theme, that has caused me on more than one occasion to stop listening and consult the internet on my phone for more information. Like Moore his repeated pokes at modern day vernacular have been the cause of my irregular outbursts of laughter in public places. FUN series, I hope for more from this author past the third book.
All three of the books in this series are some of the best books I've listened to in a long time. Great story and great narration. I couldn't put any of these books down for long. After the first book, I was hexed for the rest.
yes, the whole story draws you in.I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next
the continuation from last book
Absolutely, I think this is one of the best stories I have read. If you are looking for incredibly deep and twisting plots, this isn't the story for you, but if you like good characters, witty dialogue, and sticking it to the man, this is your story.
fun, fast, weird
The story is fast, there is always something going on, always some suspense. The humor in the book can make you laugh out loud and therefore I recommend not listening to this audiobook in public or with company, to avoid strange looks and comments. ;-) The narration is great really adds to the story and characters.
The talks with his companion are always fun and some of the thoughts the main character has are just to strange and funny.
It definately made me laugh!!
Can't wait for the fourth part of the series.
It is up to you to use your powers for good!
This story continues to pull me in with its own planetary gravity. Luke Daniels pumps pure life into this book and the entire series! Kevin Hearne tells a fabulous tale, but Luke Daniels is it's heartbeat. I've listened to it twice (the entire series so far) and it doesn't disappoint nor become stagnant. Kevin Hearne has inspired me to brush up on my Norse mythology. You wont be disappointed - even if you've never had the fish and chips at Rula Bula :)
Brilliantly read and brought to life by Luke Daniels, this is a witty and entertaining fantasy series, cleverly constructed and filled with interesting characters, not least Oberon the food-obsessed dog. The central character Atticus is an ancient but unaging druid - the last of his kind - whose survival into modern day America has relied largely on keeping his head down and staying under the radar of various gods and other supernatural entities only too keen to take him out.
Audible UK dropped these titles for a while, so I hope they get them back and fill out the series with the later entries and forthcoming novels
