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.

What the Critics Say

"An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology... [Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre." (Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked)

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

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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...

    "Great Story Continues...."
    Would you listen to Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6 again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoy the story (much as I thought I wouldn't).


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not just one...it can be Oberon, Atticus, etc. depending on what's happening in the story at that time. I guess that's a compliment to the writer.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Way too many!!!


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

    I did, the minute you used the "F" word. I was impressed with how well the book was written and the characters articulated their thoughts and feelings without having to do that type of cursing, and then it started a little in this book and carried on in Book 7 and 8, which I did not like at all.


    Any additional comments?

    I think the writer was doing very well getting all thoughts and feelings across to the reader without having to use curse words (i.e. the "F" word), but it seems Mr. Hearne has decided to go the easy route since there are plenty of words that can be used instead of "F....".

    "Great Series Keeps Delivering"
    What did you love best about Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6?

    Much love for the dog.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Atticus. He gets stuck in the craziest places and is able to think or fight his way out. Great hero.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    When he's does the dog's voice, I can't stop laughing.


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

    Man's best friend.

    I know really dumb, but I like it.

    "A Real Tear-Jerker"

    Another great story with more depth than the previous books. I highly recommend it. A few sad scenes had me in tears on the treadmill so read at your own peril. Don't worry it is still a great story!
