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.

    "Not bad, just not my favorite installment."

    I am having a ball listening to the Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. The narrator, Luke Daniels, does a fantastic job with all the voices, especially Oberon, the Irish wolfhound and Perun, the Norse thunder god. Being a fan of cultures, I’ve always liked stories of the Celtic, Greek, Roman, and Norse pantheons, so it’s fun to see them all come to life and interact in the petty and political ways they do in the myths.

    However, I have to admit that I struggled with Trapped. I’ve listened to it twice and just didn’t get caught up in it as much as I have the others. I’m not sure why, exactly. Maybe I miss the bookstore, Hal, and the Widow MacDounagh. Maybe it’s because Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon spend the book running from place to place so the story never feels “settled.” Maybe it’s because I just want to smack Atticus upside the head for being a dufus.

    In Trapped, LOTS of people come gunning for Atticus: Baccus, the svartálfar, a contingent of greek vampires, Artemis and Diana, Loki and Hel. In every case, Atticus is being hunted because of something stupid he did in the past. One would think that after living SO long, one would learn how to take the long view of things. But nooo. Not Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the druids.

    Atticus is NOT the last of the druids by the end of the book, thank goodness. After twelve years, Granuaile finally becomes a full druid and does she ever kick ass! I think Granuaile is my new hero.

    Because I could, I jumped right into Hunted and I’m already caught up in that one pretty hard. Now I’m just hoping my favorite redheads both come out of their latest predicament alive. I did notice that Granuaile is NOT on the cover of Hunted! 8-O

    "Segue"

    Another exciting adventure in this mystical series. The beginning was a little slow for me, hence the 4 star rating, but it takes off, has a good ending and a great lead into the next book. Kevin Herne and Luke Daniels make an excellent duo, between the writing wit and creative voices it makes for a funny and entertaining ride. Oberon is laugh out loud funny, "unless you are a cat person", wink, wink. To get the most enjoyment out of all the fantastic characters, this is a series that should be read in order.

    "Another great iron Druid story"

    Atticus takes us on another amazing trip through mythology and his crazy life as the iron Druid. But after 2000 years what would you expect?

    "not the best in the series. still listening"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    i liked the series. I just wished they didn't change oberon's voice.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kevin Hearne before, how does this one compare?

    this was my least favorite in the series.. I wished when when going to terlanogue ( sorry for the spelling) they didn't go into detail about the different realms. I wanted to hear about the different fey that lived there beside the characters already known.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    im not sure if it the same narrator as the previous books.. if not please use him again.


    Was Trapped worth the listening time?

    yes

    "The Voices Changed"
    What aspect of Luke Daniels’s performance would you have changed?

    I've only just started this book and the voices are throwing me off. He lost the sexy druid voice and sounds more like his impersonation of Capt Kirk and Oberon sounds like an idiot (like the creepy weasel in Ice Age) instead of the happy, funny dog we've come to love.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm hoping he relaxes as the book carries on and goes back to the voices he's portrayed in previous books in the series. You would think he would listen to the previous books and get his accents flowing smoothly prior to starting the next book.

    These books are like a summer action movie. Nothing deep, but plenty of good fun. I'm looking forward to the next one.
