Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6 | [Kevin Hearne]

Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6

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.

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.

    "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
    "Starting to Slip"

    I've dutifully dropped credits on all the issues of this series so far and been generally satisfied. The action has remained strong, the magical intrigue among the various pantheons is getting stronger and the the story, as always, is well paced.

    I plan to keep reading this series, but I am noticing a growing problem with Atticus, the main character. Hearne is trying hard to drive the quips and jokes through pop culture references mostly told by the Iron Druid himself. This is getting more and more forced and I think it is starting to eat the core of the main character.

    Atticus is supposed to be a 2000+ yrs. old druid with the wisdom of years and a pressing concern with preserving the health of the earth, self-preservation, and passing his knowledge on to his protege, not to mention spending quality time with his dog. He has a lot on his mind. He (including his internal monologue) talks like an idle twentysomething who spent the last three years in front of his computer all day ritualistically refreshing buzzfeed and quickmeme. Up to now, I had generally liked the way he had made such references, but now it's getting too thick. It's fantasy, and it's ok for a character from a different era to dig Coen Brothers' movies. Just don't overdo it and it will be fine.

    "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.

    "Always a a pleasure!"

    I love that each book can stand on its own but when read in order you get a better feel for what's going on & how everyone fits together. The wild goose chase that goes on thru the book tends to make it easy for the mind to wander a bit. Not good if you want to keep track of what's happening, but definitely indicative of what's going on in the story. I loved how Granuaile takes over the story telling from the to time. Love hearing her take in the situation.

    "Modern day romp with myths and legends"

    I am enjoying this Iron Druid series. Luke Daniels brings out the humor, sensitivity, adventure, and pathos that Kevin Hearne wrote. What a winning combination!

    "Love Iron Druid Chronicles"

    But how many times can Atticus almost die before reaching to find some life saving earth. I really like the series and Oberon is hilarious. It is just getting a wee too much. Brink of death. Saved. Brink of death. Saved. Repeat. And repeat. I will keep listening though. These are still entertaining.

    Story
    "It was so much better before"
    Would you listen to Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6 again? Why?

    Probably not...can't stand to listen to Granuaile! Her thoughts are whiny and weak...it just doesn't match with the story and the earth elementals calling her "Fierce Druid" she just sounds like a whiney indecisive girl :(


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

    I can't think of one...maybe I should have given it less stars!


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

    Yes...they are good just am not a fan of his Granuaile and of the way her part is written.


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

    it did make me laugh out loud once


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so much better before adding Granuaile's voice. I wish it were a physical book so I could literally skip over her section! I did end up fast forwarding through some of it because I just couldn't take it!
