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.

I felt the first book was slow starting and only saved by the last few chapters. I hoped the second book would take off at a run and keep going. I am happy to report that it did! Hurray - I'm happy to recommend this one to you. I enjoyed the addition of Coyote to this story and the narrator did a fabulous job this time around. He has many accents to contend with and handled the job with great skill. I was glad that Mr. Hearne explained things about the Irish Wolfhound's life span and how this was dealt with in the book. Well done.
I cannot wait until July 5, 2011 when the next book is scheduled to be released.
This is one of the best stories I have ever listened to. The main character is smart and funny. The supporting ones are great as the writer has combined historical, mythical and interesting people that enhance the plot. I hope for many more books in this series. I think Hearne could give Jim Buthcher a run for his money.
I am giving 4 stars.
1. It is author's first book.
2. It has some good humor.
3. Main character is very cool.
4. Narrator did a good job
5. Story is not all that bad.
Had to give up. Impossible to listen to. A year-long (or felt like it, at least) discussion on how not to sound old, and Oberon read as Scooby bloody Doo. Shoot me now.
This is a quick ok read, but beware the main character is very childish. He is a 2100 year old person who looks 21, and in all ways he acts 21, so don't expect great wisdon or maturity.
I enjoy how the author weaves lore in with modern day so it takes superstitions or old beliefs and forms them into a sensible story.
Another fast paced exciting novel in The Iron Druid Series. Really enjoying Mr. Hearne's world of Vampires, witches, werewolves and gods. He spins and exciting tale and really? Oberon is one of my favorite characters!
Can't wait to continue on in the series.
Hounded was decent--ight entertainment, amusing dog and just slightly sexist which I brushed off as simply Mr Hearne writing "guy lit". Hexed takes the author's obvious woman problems to a new level. Luke Daniels is a great narrator, however.
Yes i would listen to this epic book again. Everything just flows so well together.
The dog. Nothing else need said
Luke Daniels is such an excellent narrator that he takes an 'okay' story and makes it much more. This is the second of the Iron Druid stories I've bought and enjoyed but probably will be the last. There's lots of material to build stories on and obviously Kevin Hearne researched extensively to write with the attention to detail of the different mythologies he uses but with this one I found myself anticipating what comes next instead of listening to the story so it's time to move on.
Light fun 'read' and I do recommend it if you like the witchcraft/mythology genre.
