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)
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
Some sense of humour added into a rollicking good ride. They remind me of the Dresden Files. These books won't stretch your grey matter but they are fun.
available to be chosen but not obligatory.
according to the definition I found online, this is the opposite of optional. I like leaving positive reviews, but I have neither the time, nor the inclination to wax poetic... unless I'm beginning a snide arse.
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.
