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.

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.
Trapped is a quick, fun listen. It's a good light book!
Oberon is my favorite character because of the humor he brings.
Oberon! I love the voice he puts to him.
I didn't want to stop listening! I would take longer walks just to keep listening to it!
After the long wait, I got to finally hear the continuing story of Atticus and Graunuele, but mostly Oberon.
Oberon, Oberon, Oberon, I totally love that dog. Reminds me of my dogs, if they could talk that is. My female is all about them belly rubs.
"Waxing poetically" is another term for running at the mouth for 20 minutes. I found the guys story to be quite long and boring. Sorry, bad with names but when you get to this part, you'll know exactly what I mean.
While the last two books seemed to get a bit bogged down in exposition, Trapped seemed to bring back some of the energy from the earlier Chronicles. More Oberon - always a plus - and Granuaile's training finished between books. (That could have been a HPDH camping nightmare. Yeesh.) As with the rest of the series, Luke Daniels is an amazing narrator.
My reading and listening tastes are eclectic.
Well, the Iron Druid is back. Luke Daniels has become my favorite narrator. Kevin Hearne has written a series that is just excellent, and every new book he has written just builds on the previous books in a positive way. I listened to this the week it came out, and I have listened to it twice since then to just enjoy it again.
Yes, because the book makes me laugh and has a touch of romance between Atikus and Gronuail that I'll be back for more. Hope this is not the end of the series or he starts another that is just as fun. I almost hate to stop cleaning and it is my least favorite chore.
These were a first for me and got me started on the fantasy genre
Just about any part with Oberon and his wit. He is so in love with sausages.-Lol.
This is a great series. The characters make this story a joy to read and to listen to. But, what happened to the narrator? I had to check the credits to see if he was the same from the previous audio books. His performance of Atticus and Oberon has changed significantly. Consistency is out the window on this book and I very much enjoyed his previous performances. I hope they consider this feedback for the next book. Still, it's a great story and thanks to Kevin Hearne for being such a prolific talent.
