Publisher's Summary

Atticus O’Sullivan is back in an all-new, action-packed, laugh-out-loud novella from the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles.

Two-thousand-year-old Atticus may have outwitted and outfought everyone from Odin to Bacchus, but in this eBook original, he’s about to discover what comes around when you go around messing with gods.

Six years into the training of his beautiful apprentice, Granuaile, a large crow swoops down and transforms into none other than the Morrigan, a goddess who insists that Atticus come with her at once. He must leave his apprentice behind, along with his Irish wolfhound, Oberon - and he must also leave his sword. The Morrigan has always taken extreme pleasure in pronouncing the Druid’s mortal danger and imminent doom, so the fact that she won’t reveal the purpose of their journey makes him very nervous. Of course, any time the Celtic Chooser of the Slain drops in unannounced, it’s never good. When she does let slip that she’ll be saving his life in the near future, Atticus is left to wonder...will he soon be giving his legions of enemies something to crow about?

Includes a preview of Kevin Hearne’s highly anticipated new novel in The Iron Druid Chronicles, Trapped!

"[Atticus is] a strong modern hero with a long history and the wit to survive in the twenty-first century.... A snappy narrative voice...a savvy urban fantasy adventure." (Library Journal)

    "I like it but...."

    If I didn't like this series so much I would have felt I over paid. It was way too short, honestly if it weren't for book 5 being out I would whine more. There was a few good parts but I felt it was just a little slow. by the time it started really getting interesting it was over. ARG! After I read book 5 I will re-review this book and see whether the added information here was that important. I also thought that Luke was reading a little slow in the beginning, like he just woke up. It was still good.... hmmm yaaa...ahh Mostly. :)

    Don't dis-me I gave it 5 stars... :)

    "Nice story"

    This is a fun, tight little story. I almost didn’t pick it up because of the price vs length, but it is worth it. It is a good half step between book four and five (where there are a full twelve years).

    Voracious reader/listener: I usually have one ebook and one audiobook going at a the same time. I'm a very eclectic reader so I tend to switch genres after every book. I'm open to most genres but my favorites in audio are mystery and fantasy (epic and urban both).

    Story
    "Good but too expensive for a novella"

    As 12 years pass between the events in Tricked (Bk 4) and Trapped (Bk 5), this novella is set right in the middle timewise and sets the stage for Ragnarök (the showdown between the Norse gods and some really bad people) and some very interesting alliances between Atticus and some gods. We also learn how Atticus and Granuaile are dealing with their 'working' relationship and some very revealing tidbits about Atticus' past.

    I wouldn't say the book was boring but it didn't have excitement of previous books, specially because most of the action occurred during a formal dinner - and we hear descriptions of every course.

    Luke Daniels did a bang up job with the narration as usual but I don't know that I'd recommend anybody to pay the current price of this audiobook (which is $9.80 for Audible members.) I think it's a definite must read but I think the ebook will suffice.

    But of course, I'm a big fan of this series and I'm sooo looking forward to Trapped. Like the last few books in the series, I'll probably buy the audio the day it comes out

    Story
    "Fairly lame Novella of the Iron Druid series"

    I wasn't impressed with this just over 2 hour short story. For one thing, Luke Daniels voicing of the Druid wasn't of the same intonation as in the first 4 books and Oberon the dog was morphing into an intelligent sentient being instead of a dog...the dog has been given more and more voice as the books progress and, frankly, it's getting a bit thick. No longer cute and funny, Oberon has become slightly annoying.

    The plot was simple and slightly out of purpose.

    I bought this because I'm a fan of the first 4 books but after listening to the preview of the new actual book coming out in November I sort of doubt that I'll bother to buy it.

    As I suspected when first listening to this series,which in fact started out very funny and light in key, that it might not have the legs to go on for too long.

    Too long might have come IMO. It's gotten old and Oberon has become the fall guy too many times, he's the Jerry Lewis to the 'Druids' Dean Martin. Slobbery dog can go away now-thank you.

    The novela wasn't worth the credit I spent.

    "Meh. $4 book at best."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you are an Atticus junkie, it's a must-have, but for the price, there are much better values on this site.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kevin Hearne? Why or why not?

    I'm almost ready for this series to be over with... I realize this was only a novella, but I felt like this one was totally just phoned in. I'm really at odds with myself on these books, it's almost to a "guilty pleasure" status. The pop culture references were a bit comical at first, but it's like Atticus is Abbott, and Oberon is Costello, and when Atticus does the funny bit, it kinda falls flat. I've enjoyed this series thus far, and I'm sure I'll see it through to the end, but this one definitely left me wanting. I wished that it would've provided some interesting back-story, to maybe Atticus' relationship with the Morrigan, or solely Atticus and Oberon. If I'm gonna fork over $10, I'd happily do it for 3hrs of Atticus and Oberon interaction.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    I would have cast Luke Daniels from a couple of books ago. I would equate his narration of this, to Roy Dotrice in "A Feast for Crows". (For any George RR Martin fans, you know what I'm talking about!) I've enjoyed him in the other books, as best I can recall, but the first 10-20 min of this is utterly painful (as you can tell from the preview).
    After some time, it gets a little better, but it's under 3hrs, so by the time you grow accustomed to it, it's over. Honestly, I heard the preview for the next book at the end of the last book, as well as this one, and if Loki is going to be an active character, I'm not sure I'm going to like the next book either.


    Do you think Two Ravens and One Crow needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Absolutely. I guess it is only meant to serve the purpose of a little filler, or a "tide-me-over" until the next book. Maybe I had my expectations too high, I dunno.


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be priced under $6, there far better books for less money out there.

    "OK, not necessary to overall story, but ok."
    What made the experience of listening to Two Ravens and One Crow the most enjoyable?

    The narrator, as always, was great! Every person and animal has their own identity.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As with the previous reviews-the Dog!! Oberon is great!


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

    All of them, he is truly a trained vocal performer.


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

    Yes. But a warning, it was a good story in itself, but unnecessary in the overall scheme of the longer books. You won't miss anything if you don't buy it.
