Tricked: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 4

Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.

Publisher's Summary

Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.

But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.

    Would you listen to Tricked again? Why?

    Great storry Amazing Proformance
    At times the main character can get a bit cheeky, but this worked well with the story and I did not feel the author was making fun of me or the story. I would have to say the author has to be a complete died in the wool nerd. Just to many references and alliterations to be otherwise. I recommend this entire series.

    "Good story bad politics"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Take the global warming preaching in your face crap out.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very enjoyable


    Was Tricked worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the books a lot and they did have an extraordinary story line however there was way to much preachiness in them. I felt like someone was there making sure that it had global warming as the underlying story to the story. The reason I listen and read books is to escape reality and enjoy a good story not listen to a different story attached to a political view of the current world. This is just my opinion so do not take this as an insult that is to how it is meant.

    This series is a great read becuase it continues to surprise me and at the same time there is good humor throughout. While riding my motorcycle, I started laughing out loud at one point.

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

    I have read and listened to all of the Iron Druid series books. This book is the weakest. Quite frankly, I had a difficult time getting to the end. The culture references are getting old, and his eco-preaching is tiresome. Oberon's input is getting harder to like.


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Luke Daniels is an excellent narrator. However, he has changed his rendering of Oberon in this book, so Oberon sounds more like Scooby Doo. Not a good change.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I got really, really tired of the interaction between Atticus and Oberon.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the next book is better - I will be checking it out of the library, though - just in case.

    "Keep 'em coming Kevin!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tricked to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I love listening to Luke Daniels.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the interaction between Atticus and Coyote.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I loved it when Oberon asked Atticus to introduce him as Snuggle Pumkin, so he could conduct his experiment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed several times. Mostly when Oberon is involved. I found myself holding my breath when Atticus had his throat ripped out and almost died.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the Iron Druid Chronicles to everyone! I am hooked.
