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 liked the series. I just wished they didn't change oberon's voice.
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.
im not sure if it the same narrator as the previous books.. if not please use him again.
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.
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.
Fantastic story, fabulous Narrator Luke Daniels!!! I have a huge library and this series is my top favorite series! If you have a boring personality, don't bother, way too much excitement and awesomeness for you! Everyone else please enjoy!
I had a long car ride and it contained lots of action and not much deep thought to remember story lines and characters. It was great for a day of driving!
I think I'll give this series a rest for a while. The story line, while entertaining in the first few books, is too much like a quest in a video game form the 90's... Find the special sword, kill bad guy with special power, hide from other bad guys in secret passage under a mountain... I think I've been there before.
Listened to several other iron druid books, outside of that, I'm not aware of any
I love audio books. Makes driving so much more entertaining.
Wonderful writing and the narrator does great voices. My husband doesn't like to read but these books he loves to listen to.
