Hexed: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 2 | [Kevin Hearne]

Hexed: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 2

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, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

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.

    Story
    "Good fantasy world"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hexed to be better than the print version?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Atticus has a good sense of humour. But with Oberon, they are the best.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Very good. The voice change and the way he does the book is very good. He is among the better narrators


    Any additional comments?

    I have read the 3 books and just can wait for the 4th.

    Story
    "A smart and funny druid"
    Would you listen to Hexed again? Why?

    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 The numerous historical references to events, characters, and places keep you on your toes; the dialogues between the druid and his dog are so funny they’re worth a second listen.


    What other book might you compare Hexed to and why?

    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.


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

    The tone, the pace, the voices (the dog!). Excellent timing.


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

    Should a druid offer tea, coffee or beer to gods showing up at his door?


    Any additional comments?

    Can’t wait to read more in the series.

    "Another excellent read/listen"

    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.

    Story
    "Dresdan meets Christopher Moore"

    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.

    "Best new trilogy in a long time"
    Would you listen to Hexed again? Why?

    Engaging
    Fun
    Modern


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.

    "Another Excellent Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    Story
    "Warning do not listen in public"
    If you could sum up Hexed in three words, what would they be?

    fun, fast, weird


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The talks with his companion are always fun and some of the thoughts the main character has are just to strange and funny.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It definately made me laugh!!


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the fourth part of the series.

    "Captivating and Refreshing"

    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 :)

    Story
    "Interesting twists and I couldnt wait for more!"

    It is a good continuation of the story which began in the first book . The story is very well planned and you can tell someone did his homework before writing this. The narrator does an excellent job keeping the characters voices correct. I love the dog,Oberon. He is so funny and his personality is very much like a real Irish wolfhound. I know because there are two in my family. If you read the first book you definately dont need me to convince you to read this one. If not, let me say its better to read them in order but the author can get you up to speed if you just want to start here. Read it. Love it and laugh at it. Dont miss this one.

    Story
    "excellent series"

    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
