After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave.
Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief, who all seem to have KILL THE DRUID at the top of their to-do lists.

I'm not sure I would have read every print book in the series . . . but I was DYING to for each new book in this audible series to become available . . . Kevin Hearne is the best reader. Ever.
This particular book didn't feel finished.
The main character. And then the dog.
I've coached an award winning competitive speech team for 15 years. I use Hearne's voices as examples of character development.
I've got only one word for the author: MOAR!!!
I've got four words for the narrator: DO NEXT BOOK PLEASE!!!
And you can imagine I sound like Oberon if you like. I don't care, so long as you write more!
Iron Druid Chronicles rule!
Once again a wonderful addition to this on going story. My only complaint is that I wish it were longer. It seems like you just get started and it is already ending again. I hope that the next one is coming soon. What a cliff hanger of an ending
The revenge of the dark elves
wonderful narration. I love oberon's voice and comments
I love all kinds of books but don't really read them anymore I would rather listen to them but I will still buy the book if I love it enough to collect it.
If you love books about druids magic and witches I suggest this series to you because it is a wonderful series and I got hooked on the series just by listening to the first 10 mins of the first book and I would definatley say it is in the top 10 list of my favorite books.
I'm what some folks call, "extremely average."
I wasn't prepared for the book to completely skip Grunuaile's training! I spent the first chapter in mild shock over missing 12 years of Atticuses life (hence the 4 star review). But I pretty quickly recovered and moved on, since this was another fabulous Iron Druid story.I was riveted to my speakers right up to the OMG ending! Kevin Hearne has a powerhouse of a series here, and I hope for at least a dozen more stories!

Kevin Hearne does it again. Another great adventure with Atticus O’Sullivan! The only draw back to this audiobook was the fact that Luke Daniels narration sounded different. The voice of Atticus wasn't the same as the previous 4 books. Do I recommend this title? Of course I do! I love the humor and wit Kevin Hearne gives the voice of his characters. Oberon cracks me up. Start with book one if you haven't already. Be sure and warn anyone around you who are unsure you're listening to an audiobook that there may be spontaneous moments of hilarity.
Nothing like someone reading you a story, then having a nap. What a life.
Luke Daniels does a great job in the read of the story.
The dogs voice
An audio book fiend
If they were a fan of the series then yes, but otherwise probably not.
I'm just an old goat that like magic, dragons, elves, dwarves, wizards and witches. I read for intertainment and like long fast paced books that have just a few central characters....Loved Iron Druid series and Monster Hunter series. I live on a farm in SC and have given all the birds and animals that hang in my yard names and magical powers, and sometimes it seems like they really do.
Yes I would and I'm going to.
These books are just fun to listen to and will keep your attention through out.
All 5 books in this series are great. I recommend to any one that likes Fantasy!!!!!
Get it and enjoy!!
The action is back! Compared to the previous book in the series (which I was a little disappointed in), Trapped had much more action and surprise twists and turns.
Oberon finally getting to talk to Granuaile and then giving her a hard time about her terrible hunting skills! haha I love Oberon.
He convincingly does multiple voices. Often times male actors in audio books don't do female voices very well and it pulls me out of the story. Luke Daniels does all characters perfectly. Especially Oberon.
Nobody puts Atticus in a corner.
This book gets back to what I love about the Iron Druid Chronicles, however that being said, Kevin Hearne will hopefully come up with a new way to introduce conflict into his stories. Every conflict stems from his solution to the previous conflict and a chase ensues in which Atticus out smarts and out fights everyone. I love the books, but something new has got to happen.
