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)
The stories are awesome alone. However, Luke Daniels adds another layer of awesomeness to the stories. He is by far and above my favorite male narrator. I like him so much that I sometimes but audible books just because he's reading them!!
Makes the half hour drive feel like 10 minutes! This is the best way to listen to books... driving to school with my moody teen, and we both just sink into a story and relax. Then right before school we talk about what we listen to and how cool the story was.
work with children and dogs, so fantasy is a wonderful distraction!
As always, the plot is well thought out and delivered. Can't get enough of Oberon!
I am a bigger fan of the Dresden Files, but while between books I decided to devour this series. It's improving as it goes and while it's not the same, it's strangely satisfying when I crave simple fantasy. Terrific performance makes all
If a book can make me laugh out loud, then its doing something right. This series does a lot of things right. I enjoy the characters in this series, even when they die. The cornucopia of mythological references is great fun, and the narrator, while not always perfect with pronunciation, does such a great job with each individual voice that I don't even mind. Great pairing,.Well worth investing the time to explore this series.
The story was great, characters and their personalities fantastic and Luke Daniels tied it all together as one incredibly amazing Narrator. So far in all the books I've listened to there's been only one other narrator that I found as a must have. She was great Luke is OUTSTANDING!
Everything! His talent to create individual voices for each character to the point that I knew who was speaking without having to be told blew me away. I've wanted to be a narrator and if I had to have a teacher I would beg for Luke Daniels!
Can't wait for more......
This book is fast paced and full of action. Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon literally run acroos Europe in order to survive their latest antics. The plot is darker and sadder than previous books. There is a lot of growth and development with the characters. I look forward to the next book.
