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.

Get your Fantasy Fix!

Where does Hexed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would rank Hex fairly high on my must listen books. I will definitely listen to the next book in the series to come out.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hexed?

The dog, Oberon, provides comical commentary through out the series and definitely produces the more memorable moments in the story. His commentary encompasses every topic from bacon latte's to Star Trek and back again to a harem of poodles.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

Luke Daniel does a great reading including multiple voices for different characters.

Any additional comments?

This is a light hearted fantasy book full of modern day humor. The story touches on some history in form of bath time stories for the main character's (Atticus) dog (Oberon). I would put the book in the same category as Jim Butcher's Dresden Series. The story is a little predictable in the regard of most fantasy genre books. The good guy wins with only the loss of few minor characters. The fictional world is full of typical fair; vampires, werewolves, fairies, and gods. Overall the book is a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Both Kevin and Luke keep me coming back for more!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I listen to books while I run, and this series gets me excited to lace up every day! I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys various cultures mythologies. These books are witty and compelling, and they make my miles go by too quickly!

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

Luke does voices well and you are never left guessing who is speaking. I think this is a talent that cannot go overlooked in a narrator. His take on voices often makes me laugh out loud.

This series seems to get better with each book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Hexed to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version. BUT I feel Luke Daniels does such an amazing job of voice acting each character, I can't imagine even the voices in my head being this good!

What other book might you compare Hexed to and why?

I see it as a book akin to any of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series.

Which scene was your favorite?

The showdown with the 80s german rocker witches was pretty great!

One of the best listens I have ever had.

Would you consider the audio edition of Hexed to be better than the print version?

Yes I would, the audio version with the character voices create a vivid landscape that allows the minds eye to follow the story almost like sitting in front of a television.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Oberon would have to be my favorite character, the witty remarks made by this Dog got me laughing more than once.

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

Yes, I have listened to the whole series, Got hooked on the first book of the iron druid chronicles, and have enthusiastically followed the whole series.

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

I laughed quite a bit while listening to this book. Without the comic relief this book would have been much harder to listen to.

Any additional comments?

This series is without doubt one of my favorite, my many thanks to Luke Daniels, I have become a huge fan of his work, I especially like how he has found a way to work known mythology into a believable story line. The new way to look at old "mythological heroes" has opened my eyes to realizing that some old preconceptions about characters who generally get cast in a favorable light need not necessarily be conceptualized that way. Casting Thor as a bad guy along with the rest of Asgard was a brilliant move.
I find it hard to wait for the next book in the series, I hope this series continues for a long time. There is much back story to be told yet, and some of the characters such as the witches coven, or the wolf pack, and even the story of some of the elemental's, could have their own series of books.

Thank you so much Luke Daniels for creating a character that I can connect with after listening to this book, I am even more proud to have Irish blood.
