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.

"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)
Laughed out loud, cried a little, and loved every minute of this adventure! I seriously can't listen to Oberon without smiling!
Is you even sort of like this series (I don't understand how anyone would not like it) you need to listen to this one! I didn't want it to end!
Absolutely. Luke Daniels does a fantastic job with the characters (really, characters, not just voices).
+10 for citing Wheaton's Law. Grinned from ear to ear hearing this.
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.
Okay, so the first three books had me binge-listening, and LOVING every second of it. Granted, Oberon's 'voice' was the most-anticipated for me, but the stories were awesome and the narrator superior.Then, book four, and I had a meh reaction to it. It was okay, but truly felt like a prelude to book five.Which brings me here, to "Hunted"...a good story, not a great one, good action, not great, good plot lines, not great, Oberon..well, he's always great...and Granuaille. She sounds like a hippie. A true barefoot dancing, bell-bottom wearing, trippin' through life, hippie. I know, because I'm old enough to remember hippies. And, it.is.sooo.annoying. She needs to be tougher, more like..well, more like Atticus.I am hoping book six brings me back into the "shut up and take my money" fold for the series, because this last one has me wondering.
This book had me enthralled with the first chapter. I had to finish it, couldn't stop listening.
Yes, the series is very good and a lot of fun.
Luke Daniels is always a treat, I couldn't imagine anyone else doing Sheahan
I am not Kevin Hearne's number one fan, mostly because I think Atticus is too much of a hipster, and to me, often seems over powered, but I will say that this is my favorite book in the series thus far and that it left me wanting more, which is the mark of good literature.
