Trapped: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 5 | [Kevin Hearne]

Trapped: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 5

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.

    "I can't wait for the next part"

    This was definitely an exciting installment. Oberon is by far my favorite character. I like how Granuaile had a bigger presence in the book. Her reaction to somethings that Atticus thought she'd marvel at in Tir na nOg like the time islands was interesting. She has a much more modern mind set. It's also great to see such a strong female character. This book will also confirm for those who already don't like them, that clowns are evil. I'm glad to see Leif getting back into the story and I'm interested to see just who's side he's really on.

    Any additional comments?

    Standard serving of awesomeness! There was a point where the story got a bit confusing. Too many enemies out to get Atticus for even his paranoia to account for!! Hearne did a good job of weaving the plot back together though. I was concerned about how the end of Granuaile's apprenticeship was going to play out, but it wasn't horribly painful. I have to say I don't like her character. She is very flat, not much personality. There isn't any real chemistry between her and Atticus, no witty repartee. Very little spark to her dialogue or actions. Perhaps its just the way that Daniels performs this character. I don't think I will like the remaining books in the series if they focus more on her. Oberon is all the side kick that Atticus needs. Granuaile adds nothing to the story. Thank the LORD they don't get too much into the love interest part of their relationship.

    If you could sum up Trapped in three words, what would they be?

    Oh My Gods! ;)

    This takes place twelve years since Tricked and 6 years after Two Ravens and One Crow. Luke Daniels once again narrates the story so that you are on the edge of your seat thanks to the awesome story written by Kevin Hearne.

    Even in its slow moments the story kept me listening, wanting to finish it all in one sitting even though I knew that when it was over I was going to have to wait for the next installation. I laughed, I cried and nearly choked on my coffee in places. So if you enjoy urban fantasy and like humor mixed in with your action and drama try the Iron Druid Chronicles from the beginning! If you've read or listened to the previous books you won't be disappointed with this installment!

    I'm a college student at Eastern Washington University with a major in psychology. I'm a quadriplegic and audio books help me make it through the day and give me something interesting to listen to while getting there.

    "An excellent addition to the iron Druid Chronicles"

    I absolutely love this series and I've been waiting six months for this book to finally come out. When it finally did I was just a little disappointed at how short it was. The story is great, but I can't quite say it was excellent. I really loved the story and the direction the series is heading into but I just felt like Kevin Hearne was rushing through a few of the key situations that Atticus, Oberon, and Granuaile get themselves into. It can be a long six months for me to wait for the next book.

    "Good continuation of the series."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trapped to be better than the print version?

    The audiobook version is worth it for Oberon alone, everything else is just sweet sweet gravy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Like the rest of the series it's funny, fast paced and well written.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Seems to be fairly consistent quality, and well voice acted between all characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Feels like it cut off in an odd spot, but very well done and wish the next one was out already.

    "Another great story in the adventures of the Druid"

    As with all the books in this series, once started I couldn't put it down. What more could you ask for in a SF series than a reserve superhero who thumbs his nose at gods, elves, elementals, Witches, vampires, Dwarves, etc. He real doesn't seek confrontation but it just seems like as a result of having lived so long he has annoyed them and they want him dead. He's training an apprentice and she's no slouch. He's already a force to be reckoned with, what in the world will happen when there is two of them?

    "Kevin Hearne is amazing!!!!"
    If you could sum up Trapped in three words, what would they be?

    Incredibly, Awesome, and Fun!


    What other book might you compare Trapped to and why?

    none other


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I can't imagine anyone else as the narrator, nor would I want too. He is Atticus.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I did.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the series. I don't recommend books or series often, but I have too with this one. It's a great ride, a brilliant read, and you care about the characters. I can't say enough.

    "Best Audio Series!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trapped to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely! I was sent an advanced copy of the book for review, but about 10% through I knew I had to use one of my precious credits to get the audiobook.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oberon, not only do I think he is the funniest character, but come on a talking dog?


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Luke Daniels does an amazing job with each of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I was actually sent an advanced copy of this book for review, but about ten percent through I knew I had to use one of my precious audible credits and get the audio book. Luke Daniels has done an amazing job with this audio series and it has by far become my favorite to listen to. The story itself is so much fun, from the beginning Atticus is thrown into another instance where his mouth has brought doom upon his head. With excellent comedic timing both by Kevin Hearne and through the narration of Luke Daniels along with the fast paced action this is a great read. If you are a fan of any mythology Kevin Hearne has you covered this entire series covers ancient Gods from Norse to Christian each with their own unique personality that the author has brought to life in a remarkable way and Luke Daniels furthers this with his dramatization. The only thing I didn’t like was that Luke Daniels changed the voice of Atticus’ mentor whom he frequently has arguments with inside his mind, this book he wasn’t as high pitched and sounded much more serious than he has in the previous books, not bad just not as funny. This is by far one of the best audio book series and one of the best story lines I have come across I cannot wait to see where Kevin Hearne will take us next.
