    "Better than a novella"
    Any additional comments?

    This is one of my top all time favorite series. There are different stories told from different perspectives and a redo of The Demon Barker of Wheat Street by Luke Daniels (Thank the Gods!). Luke Daniels is spectacular with all the voices, it seems to me as if he truly enjoys this series and characters, especially Oberon. The stories are all interesting and add to the stories past and the current storyline. Listening to these stories makes me truly anxious to hear the final book. I pray that Hearne reconsiders and keeps writing IDC novels. Hearing Atticus and Owen swear put a smile on my face all day!

    "A Collection of Short Stories"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The format is a collection of short stories which bounce around in time. Each new story is prefaced with the books that they are before and after. The transitions which attempt to link the stories can be awkward but they are not too annoying. The stories themselves are solid short stories. It's definitely not as good as the Iron Druid books, but it's worth 1 credit. The on benefit of this format is that it's easy to pick up and put down.

    "This is a collection of short stories"
    Any additional comments?

    I thought I had pre-purchased the next installment of the series, not a collection of short stories. I DID enjoy the short stories, just not what I expected.

    "Disappointed"

    I really enjoy this series and enjoy listening to Luke Daniels performances. I really didn't enjoy the short stories that jumped around. I was looking forward to the continuation of the story where it left off from Staked. This book feels, rushed, thrown together and is not up to the authors usual story telling. Parts of it are fun but I feel like this is the Phantom Menace of the series. A book I'll listen to/read once or twice but not one I'll come back to over and over again.

    "Love the stories"

    Amazing thing that I have found about The Iron Druid Chronicles is the sheer amount of backstory and options for the characters. Almost any character can have its own entire series.

    "Really good"

    The stories were great.

    2 complaints. 1 I thought this was a continuation of the story line. I am happy how staked ended and would have been fine if that was the finale.
    2. Since this was a series of novellas I wish they would have included all of the published ones to date.

    Overall very good stories. I hope we get a standalone trilogy of Owen or more Oberron.

    Luke Daniels is awesome as ever. I hope he does many more of hearne's books.

    "Vintage Poodles & Cuddle Dungeons"

    There is nothing better than an author filling in the amazing universe he has created. This collection of shorts is exceptional in that regard. Hearne's characters are friends, family and frenimies and now we know a little more about what shaped and drives them. And we've got a good foreshadowing of the end thats coming in Scrouged.

    I will be terribly sad to see IDC come to an end but hope we might get another collection like this in future.

    "I wasn't expecting just a collection of stories. "

    I genuinely struggled to finish this. Thanks stories could've been leaked out over many other books, but instead we're all put in here. I was hoping for a continuation of the current story line, not bits and pieces of stuff that happened between the different books.
    I am VERY disappointed in this book.
    This book, to me, was like the final end credit scene in Spiderman Homecoming with Captain America. it was funny, at first, and then you realized you spent all this time waiting for something that just wasn't there.
    I Love Luke Daniel's narration, but the while book was a let down.
    I highly DO NOT recommend spending your money on this book, it's not what you're going for....

    "Awful voice acting!"
    What made the experience of listening to Besieged the most enjoyable?

    Great story. really adds more detail to the series


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Poor voice acting. Accents were terrible. Irish accent sounded like someone doing a bad Jamaican accent! Couldn't tell the difference between male and female characters. Christopher Ragland is 100%better! Too bad he didn't do this book


    Any additional comments?

    Keep Luke Daniels as far away from this series as possible
