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.

    "Oberon is hilarious in this book"

    I had to pause this audio a few times so I could finish chuckling. Oberon's part in this book was most entertaining. I feel that this book went by a little quicker then the previous ones. My favorite of the series so far.

    Nope. Only listen while commuting.

    Like many of you, I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audiobooks allow me to keep up with my favorite authors. I am currently listening to 'Undead and Unstable' by MaryJanice Davidson, because 'Yours, Mine and Ours' is still not available. Grrr.

    "Humor is back."

    Atticus O’Sullivan, Oberon, and Granuaile are back and tricked into helping Coyote make the reservation a better place. Granuaile's much larger role in this book is wonderful because it leads to some epically awkward and hilarious conversations. Again, Hearne does a wonderful job mixing pop culture with mythical lore. He even references the viral double rainbow video. Hearne seems to be getting better with each book; so, pick up the first book and get started. Luke Daniels is good but he drops the ball a few times (e.g., when Atticus has a sore throat, Daniels forgets to narrate with a raspy voice for a few pages).

    "pretty good as this series goes."

    I actually enjoyed the first 3 better. The book was good but a few things were over done. Oberon the dog is a favorite part of these books. In this one he is a little too intelligent.But he was still an integral part of the story. The story brings on another source of magic which teaches the druid something he probably already should have known being 2100 years old..I felt it was a rushed job.... deadlines I guess . But it was full of twists and it did leave me wanting more. perhaps a touch too much more. But I dont regret it. It was entertaining and ingenuitive. read it .

    Story
    "These Chronicles will blow you away"
    What made the experience of listening to Tricked the most enjoyable?

    When Kevin Hearne sits down to write a book, two things are apparent that comes through in his writing. He writes for the reader who can identify quick (often obscure) references to retro and current culture, without jarring away from the story. He also writes from his own spontaneous thoughts, which is apparent in conversations between Atticus and Oberon. These ways of writing are similar to a stream of consciousness, and reads (is read) well in today's tech immersed, up to the second connected culture.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The bugs, oh the bugs!


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

    The narrator often is the 'make or break' component in an audiobook. I choose to listen to books over reading them based on this choice. After listening to Luke Daniels bring to life the most exciting literary series since "The Gunslinger" by Stephen King, I couldn't imagine anyone else finishing the series. His nuances in the delivery of lines brings out the quick wit of Atticus, and the inquisitive nature of Oberon. His performance is so good, you do not have to work hard to imagine what these characters even look like! Brilliant!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oberon's loyalty to his master. Teared up, for real.


    Any additional comments?

    I sincerely hope that the publishing company extends the 6 book contract out to include Kevin's vision to make a complete 9 book series. We can start a petition if needed! =)

    Story
    "Finally at full stride"
    Where does Tricked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    With each of the first three books of the Iron Druid Chronicles, there was always something that didn't quite ring true or just felt slightly out of place. Not so with Tricked. I feel this is definitely Hearne's best book to date. It was the first time I felt that the lead character wasn't making a completely stupid mistake that isn't in character for a man who has been able to survive for 2,000 years. It also had some great comic moments. I am absolutely eager and excited for the release of the next book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kind of hard not to love Oberon. His humor is absolutely loveable.


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

    His voices are excellent! Honest, believable, witty and engaging. He really knows how to keep the story moving along.

    "Excellent Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tricked to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. Luke Daniels is possibly my favorite narrator, rivaling even Jim Dale. His performance makes the story just perfect.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tricked?

    Any of the side commentary that Oberon provides.

    "Fun listen, good to hear more from Oberon"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have been enjoying this series overall. This book again involves Oberon the faithful hound, and Granuaile, in more significant roles. The wit, the commentary on human foibles amid the coming and going of various mythical beings is engaging.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oberon. This time it is the scoring of points between hound and Druid.

    "Great performance on a fun book."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Truly an exceptional performance on voice characterizations. Good story and interesting elaboration on a facet of some native american mythology.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Frank. Funny and wise.


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

    I wouldn't have imbued the characters with such individual voices.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.
