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.

How he brings magic into our world and not a fictional world
Anything with Oberon
Laugh and excited
I believe a story should be interesting enough to absorb me, not bore me. I live reality daily. And many times reality is brutal. So I look for a book that makes me forget. It has to absorb me into the pages. Kind of like going on a mini vacation. I like stories that make me laugh. I like stories that make me look for the next episode.
Good job Luke! Good job Kevin! Okay this story was not as good as the other books in this series. However, I'm in love with the narrator's voice. Talented with all the different voices. He makes the book live.
I love this series! The narrator really makes these books come alive. Looking forward to the next book.
I didn't read the print version but the reader really brought the characters to life in a way I think would have been missed in the print version. I also appreciated the pronunciation of many names and places that would have been difficult to read.
I love all the characters but Oberon is by far my favorite.
I laughed out loud quite a bit during the whole series.
I came late to this series and was so addicted I listened to one right after the other. I can't wait for June to hear the next one. I highly recommned this series.
This is a great adventure. I love this series
I love the characters. You actually have a real affinity for them The dialog is always intriguing. Oberon the dog is hysterical Love him The whole series is just very clever.
There is nothing to complain about with this series. Each book is fun, fast paced, and engaging. The lore is fascinating, and the action and drama are constant. If you are awesome, you will love this series.
The Narrator Luke Daniels is great and story line is easy to follow.
Oberon - great character. Of course I am a dog lover so that was a given.
Oberon..he does a wonderful job.
No...it is fiction...I laughed a lot.
I am ready to ready the next book when it comes out in June?
Absolutely. Books 1 and 2 introduce the characters. Book 3 gives us the match to the fuse. Book 4 sets the stage. Book 5 is where the overall story arc really starts. I think that the books from 5 through the end will form one coherent narrative to take us to the end.
Ummm ... that thing I wanted to have happen, that almost *had* to happen finally happened.
Also the fleshing out of Tir Na Nogth was nice - getting a feel of the place and the inhabitants gave it depth.
As usual, Luke Daniel's does a magnificent job.
See liked best #1.
Still going strong, though as with the last couple of books, a little less Oberon would be appreciated. Moving from loyal hound to sausage snarfing Yoda has been a little jarring.
I don't usually listen to fiction more than one, so doubtful
Inflection, pacing, character vocalization, all spot on...
Would, but never can...
