Publisher's Summary

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.

With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.

    Story
    "Another fun romp with the old Druid"

    Kevin Hearne writes a fun novel-not literature-he's not Neil Gaiman but his second novel made me laugh and sometime thats enough.

    I like his characters, and though the protagonist, who looks to be in his 20s also acts a lot like a 20 year old..he isn't what you would call mature even though he's a couple of thousand years old.

    The plot kept my attention and continuing character development made for a strong second book in the series.

    Worth the credit..

    Oberon ;)

    Story
    "Hearne does it again."

    I admit I had my doubts about whether Hearne would be able to keep up the fast-paced, hilarious, lovable, puckish pitch of Atticus O'Sullivan from HOUNDED and was prepared for the second book to be a let-down.

    It wasn't.

    HEXED did what a second book should do--it deepened the problems from "that sucks" to "OH S--T", tangled Atticus up in even more problems, introduced even more lovable and hateable characters, and continued adding layer after layer of complexity to the story. Hearne weaves his tale both backwards and forwards, deftly showing where Atticus has been before, and giving us delicious hints and portends (through the various pantheons and divinations) of what to expect in the future.

    Atticus's draw is undeniable, and if you're not sure whether to invest in the second book or not, I will put my full weight behind shoving you off the precipice of doubt. This book is worth it, and having listened to all four books that are currently out, I can definitely promise you won't want to miss this.

    Luke Daniels is an extremely talented voice actor as well. His accents are impressive despite an extreme variation, and I especially appreciate the way he reads female characters--without resorting to the falsetto or extreme breathiness of other male voice actors. Yet somehow, I can always tell when a woman is speaking. I hope we get to hear Daniels read quite a bit more--he's fast approaching my favorites list.

    "Great Second Book"
    Where does Hexed rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It's definitely one of my favorites- the story is good and the characters make you laugh!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Oberon was my favorite character and the narrator did a great job with his voice, he spoke and acted just how I would expect a dog to (if they could communicate in our heads of course...)


    Any additional comments?

    I really loved the first book and was worried that I'd be disappointed with the second but I wasn't.

    "Narrator brings characters to life"

    Kevin Hearne does a great job of blending fantasy and modern times and throws in some good, dry humor. I especially like the coversations between Atticus and his dog Oberon. I find myself laughing aloud as I listen to these conversations in my car. Luke Daniels has brought Kevin's characters to life for me. Not since listening to James Marsters narrate the Dresden FIles have I been so entertained and lost in the story and characters.

    "much better performance than the 1st book"

    I found the reading of the first book a little flat, however this book was MUCH better. Much more emotion in the reading and Luke Daniels seems to become Atticus. The voice and inflection he uses when voicing Oberon is excellent.. The story is even better than the first or maybe Ive just become more involved with the characters. Really enjoy this series and I will be downloading the third one. If you enjoy mythology, a bit of philosophy and some magic you will enjoy this series! Its very smart!

    "The narrator breathes life into this great story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Hexed the most enjoyable?

    The narrator carries you through this story from the different characters (love love love the dog's voice and antics!) The writing is witty and easily sucks you into the experience. And it is an experience. Know I will be listening to this series more than once!


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

    Yes! Couldn't put it down and my poor family was beginning to think the earplugs had become permanent. When it ended, I wanted more more more.
