Publisher's Summary

For a 2,000-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, 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...run like hell.

Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok - AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living - and still have a world to live in.

"Superb...eminently readable...plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting." (Publishers Weekly, on Hounded)

    "Jumped the shark"

    Read all the previous books in the series and enjoyed them enough to keep coming back. This will be my last. It was not good at all. So much worse than the previous installments.

    **SPOILER ALERT**

    There is no story here. He is chased across europe by a a pair of olympic gods who are beaten and respawn multiple times. Various other enemies randomly pop up for battles along the way. They get where they are going take a vacation and it's over. Nothing much happens. Nothing is resolved. We don't even find out who is the mastermind behind it all. It was boring , though short, and extremely disappointing.

    Oberon has become nail gratingly annoying and now in about every scene. I used to like the small bits of dog comic relief but in this book Oberon just irritates. I was hoping he would get killed off.

    Speaking of, the best character in the series does get killed off in a very sudden and unspectacular manner. Why? Don't get it.

    There is just no reason to read any more of these for me. Another reviewer was correct, Dresden is a far superior series. Those books just keep getting better.

    The Iron Druid books are out of gas as far as I'm concerned.

    Sorry.

    "My least favorite of the series"
    Any additional comments?

    The story was missing direction and flow, just seemed scattered. If you like the series then I would certainly get it, however if you decide to forgo this one, you won't miss much.

    "running out of steam"
    What did you like best about Hunted? What did you like least?

    I loved Luke Daniels' narration. It was PERFECT! Flimsy plot/storyline. same old , same old. We've seen this in EVERY book of (Iron Druid). No character development AT ALL!! I just don't care about them anymore.


    Has Hunted turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Just this series.


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

    I would NOT read these ; only listen to with Luke Daniels.


    Was Hunted worth the listening time?

    Yes, it was quite short. However, I certainly do not think it's worth the $19+


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointed. It's like the author just gave up! And so will I.

    "Kevin + Luke= Amazing!!!!!"

    This is my favorite series right now. I cannot wait to see what Ragnarok and the Norse pantheon will throw at our heroes. I am saddened by the death in the beginning but excited by the two new characters introduced at the end. The bit where Granuaile gets her own chapters is a little weird, but I get why. I wonder if it will be the same in the next book. Luke Daniels is the perfect narrator for these books. He is pretty much spot on all the way through. Awesome addition to the series, but it just makes waiting for the next installment that much harder.

    "Battle after battle after battle"

    Not a book that could stand on its own, I felt I needed to go back and listen again to #4 and #5 in the series in order to make sense of why the heck everyone was after the two druids.

    I really enjoyed the first few books in the series, but by book 4 was starting to have doubts as to the legs this story arc might have. Sad to say that, as talented as Kevin Hearne is as a writer, Book 6 left me...well...bored.

    A primary sub plot character is killed off early in the book-no spoiler here..I won't name names. This character is a real loss to the series. s/he was a spark that livened things up.

    If you absolutely love The Iron Druid series, you'll buy it but perhaps be prepared for disappointment - and maybe relisten to 4 & 5 prior to Hunted.

    The dogs part is a bit smaller-thanks Mr. Hearne. I, for one, was a bit tired of his slobbering Scooby-Do voice and continual whining....reminds me of my daughters needy black Lab.

    It's a Meh of a listen...

    "Every book in the series tops the prior"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6 to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. Luke Daniels does a fantastic job with the characters (really, characters, not just voices).


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6?

    +10 for citing Wheaton's Law. Grinned from ear to ear hearing this.


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

    Yes, and not just with this series. This pairing of author and narrator is perfect. Only a few chapters into Book 1 of the series I knew I'd have to just buy the book in print if the narrator was changed for any subsequent volume.

    "continues to be brilliant."

    I have yet to be disappointed in the writer, or the narrator. Great story, told by a very talented voice actor.
