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)
Pandemonium (one word suffices)
What I like about this series is it's different from others I've read. I really don't want to compare it to anything else. It's fun, you don't have to think a lot, and it mixes in a lot of mythology. If I absolutely had to compare it, it would have to be close to the Percy Jackson series but for adults
Only the others in this series and he does a great job
When Atticus dies
This is by far the best of the series to date. I still think that without oberon as the comic relief, it wouldn't be as great. The writer has done a better job than with the previous books. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Great series about a dog....wait, its not about a dog? I guess that depends on who you ask. Either way Mr. Hearne has given us another great book from the Iron Druid Chronicles. I simply LOVE this series. I love the mythology and lore. I love getting to hear Oberon's point of view. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE listening to Luke Daniels narrate! I would listen to this man read his grocery list. This series is worth the listen, its worth a credit. If I didn't have a credit I would still purchase this book.
Great book. Thought I'd start getting tired of the series - but Hearne kepps growing the series like a family. The next one in the series is gonna be awesome - we get to see how Oberion relates to new girlfriend - a grand father type - and the Irish are taking Atticus back into the fold. I will definately buy the next one that comes out.
This book is excellent. It is action packed and rates as one of the best in the Iron Druid series.
The whole story involves Atticus and crew sprinting across Europe.
Luke Daniels is one of the best I have ever heard. All his awards are justified.
The ending is quite interesting.
BUY ALL KEVIN HEARNE'S BOOKS. He is my favorite writer.
I enjoyed all the books in this series and I really hope there are more to come.
I love the way Luke Daniels brings all the characters to life. The second he starts "talking", you know exactly which character is speaking.
Latest in series does not disappoint. I laughed, cried and cheered through book six. Keep them coming.
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
I would whole heartedly recommend this book. This book has everything I look for to like a book. It has an intriguing storyline, it has really loveable characters, it has an abundeance of action toward a goal, and really great sounding narrator. Who could ask for more? Well I could, I'm so looking forward to the next book. The ending here really shocked me and I have to find out how this goes. Come on Kevin, when's the next book coming out?
Avid audible listener!
Luke Daniels makes this series exceptional. I can't think of another narrator I would prefer. And of course, Kevin Hearne is a great storyteller.
The most memorable moment was about the Morrigan. I was surprised and saddened that it happened.
His ability to create a visual of the characters. There is never any doubt which character is speaking, even when there are many in a scene. I especially love his interpretation of Oberon.
I wouldn't want it as a movie. Movies are NEVER as good as the book they are based on.
This is my favorite in the series so far, and I am really looking forward to the remaining books.
I have a 40 minute commute each way and with out Audible, I'd go crazy! My fav genre is fantasy and I love a great series!
I LOVE this series! I waited very impatiently for this latest book to come out! It was not as strong in story as I had hoped, but it was still a good story, continuing to develop the characters and keeping the world alive and the humor and wit were enjoyable. If you like this series, you'll be pleased with this new addition.
I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
While book five was a departure from the series's writing style, book 6 is not. Atticus is back and almost in his full glory. Oberon is back and almost in his full glory. Granuielle is back and fierce. This book is good in that it ties up many loose ends from book 5, but I just don't like the trajectory the series has taken. The love story has come to the forefront and seems to have tainted all the characters by somehow making them more two dimensional. Luke Daniels does try to compensate for the lackluster character development and is brilliant again.
