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.

    Story
    "Perfect Marriage between material and reader."
    What made the experience of listening to Tricked the most enjoyable?

    Great story, perfectly read. Good combination of action, fantasy, and humor. I really like that there are rules to the magic and the exposure to all the different pantheons is fascinating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Too many favorite parts to pick just one.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    I loved all of them, but Oberon makes the whole series work.


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

    Laughed out loud several times. I really appreciated the Doctor Who reference as well as the Princess Bride quotes.


    Any additional comments?

    Some relationship changes in the last book and this one. While I see how they were necessary, they were uncomfortable and sad - a sign that I am falling in love with the characters. Well written, well read.

    Story
    "Another Brilliant Adventure"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tricked to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition and print version of Tricked are equal; however, Luke Daniels is EXCELLENT at representing Mr. Hearne's characters. Mr. Daniels brings another dimension to Mr. Hearne's fantastically multidimensional writing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Too many things to list.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I greatly appreciated Mr. Daniel's versatility of accent and voice. There was no struggling to know which character was talking and when. For anyone who is on the fence about hiring Mr. Daniels to portray their work, you should know that I actually purchased other audio books specifically because Mr. Daniels was the narrator. Listening to Mr. Daniels is like watching a movie with my ears!


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

    Yes! I listen while driving. I believe I added an extra block or two to my commute to prolong my listening pleasure.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Hearn's writing is like MSG for the ears. When you are finished with his book, you always want more. Tricked was no exception. I am anxiously waiting for the next adventure.

    "Luke Daniels is the Perfect Narrator"

    The Iron Druid Chronicles are romping stories full of wry humor, fast-paced action, social commentary, and cameos from the stars of many pantheons. With Princess Bride quotes. But it's Luke Daniels' great performance that really makes these books wonderful for me. His pacing, his sense of the story's arc, and his characterizations (particularly a wonderfully-doggy, somewhat slobbery, thoroughly endearing Oberon) carry the Iron Druid Chronicles to a new level of enjoyment.

    Story
    "excellent"
    Where does Tricked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The 3nd book in the series was good but not as great as the first 2, so I held off on this, the 4th. I should not have, it rocked! More Oberon!! Love that dog, I use the voice now for my own dog, I may even name my next one after him! Can't wait for the next in the series, coming November 2012.

    Summary of story to me: its hugely FUN. The light friendly telling of the story is GREAT, It makes Atticus feels like a friend of yours, I want to find out what happens next throughout, and I kinda wish Druid-as-a-career could be an option in RL! I would sign up in a minute, lol.

    Story
    "Worth waiting for..."
    What did you love best about Tricked?

    It was not predictable and it picked up right where Hexed left off. Atticus seems to find himself in one adventure after another. The use of mythology is awesome. This is the chronicle that never ends, there is always something new and unexpected happening. I LOVE Oberon.


    What other book might you compare Tricked to and why?

    I can't, this series is not like anything I have listened to before. It is unique and thus even more entertaining.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, and I was impressed by his perfomace in this book and the last three in the series. Each caharacter has its own voice and personality. There is no confusion about which character you are listening to like some other books I've listened to.


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

    Yes! You never know what will happen next and how Atticus will deal with it. Characters and events seem to be tied together in one way or another which keeps the reader thinking and wondering...


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next Kevin Hearne book!

    "Hearne doesn't disappoint!"

    I love this series. It is well written, has a great use of language and the narrator has wonderful voices for everyone. I especially like how he portrays Jesus' voice and have pondered on how long it must have taken him to figure how what He should sound like. :) As a Druid, myself, I enjoy the way Hearne brings in the various Celtic deities as well as other pantheons- hopefully todays young people will find the glimpse into a classical education interesting.

    I look forward to the next book! Thank you for the pleasurable story.

    Story
    "Kevin Hearne does it again"
    Would you listen to Tricked again? Why?

    I would probably listen to Tricked again sometime - although I seldom read books over again. I love the Iron Druid series, and their high entertainment value should be experienced more than once.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Although Kevin Hearne creates marvelous characters all around, with flaws and strengths that make them feel real, I must say I have a special place in my heart for Oberon. His hilarious antics, sausage obsession and loyal heart (well, he IS a dog) and unending projects based on the stories Atticus tells him, make him the sweetest thing you ever did see (or hear). Also, Luke Daniels has made an excellent voice for him.


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

    The voices he has made for the different characters fit perfectly. I read the first three books, but now I'm considering buying them in audio version as well - he's that great a story teller. The only one that doesn't fit in my head is the Morrigan - but who can properly make a voice that sounds like it comes from a grave vault?

    He also pronounces the Norse words correctly, so I assume he does it for the other mythology words as well. Always nice to hear them said the right way.


    Any additional comments?

    I love this urban fantasy - the wittiness and the pace, the great characters, and the plot that involves different mythologies. Kevin Hearne has done his homework for the background stories and history, and that takes this series to the "excellent" level for me.
