Publisher's Summary

For a 2,000-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt - Artemis and Diana - for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is...run like hell.

Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok - AKA the Apocalypse. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living - and still have a world to live in.

What the Critics Say

"An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology... [Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre." (Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked)

"Superb...eminently readable...plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting." (Publishers Weekly, on Hounded)

    "Good installment, frustrating ending"

    After struggling a little bit with the constrained feeling of Trapped (which I realize was appropriate, given the title), Hunted sucked me into the story and got me feeling “back to normal” with the series. For most of the book, Atticus, Oberon, and Granuaile are making a mad dash across Europe on foot, Atticus and Granuaile in their hooved shapes. I did wonder, a time or two, what was feeding energy to Oberon. I know Atticus and Granuaile receive energy from Gaia through their tattoos, but was the same happening for Oberon? Can a wolfhound sustain that kind of running for that long? I also panicked thinking that Oberon might be lost in the waters of the Channel. Yep, I am one of those people who are more concerned about the welfare of animals than people most of the time.

    I thought my heart was going to break when Oberon and Granuaile thought Atticus was dead. The despondency in Oberon, and then his eulogy to Atticus, about killed me. Thanks for that, Kevin! I don’t think I had cried reading the series until this point, not even at the death of the Morrigan, though that made me very sad.

    A couple of things surprised me, though they reveal more about me than the book: first, that big box sporting goods stores are so prevalent in Europe; and second, that Granuaile’s voice would be SO lyrical and poetic. Now that Granuaile is bound to the earth, we get to “hear” things from her point of view.

    The snark and jokes, especially from Oberon, are hilarious as always: The “Hump Me Oberon” doll; the Princess Bride reference; the bribing with Girl Scout cookies; the bits about human mating rituals being stupid. The descriptions of the Greek gods and the conversation with Zeus and Jupiter are fantastic and funny. The banter between the characters, especially Oberon, is so entertaining that it alone would keep someone coming back to the series. I’m thankful I’ve listed to all the books rather than read them; Luke Daniels does such a great job with all the voices, but Oberon in particular. It has to be much funnier to hear the banter than to read it.

    The ending, though… It frustrated me. Most of the book seemed to be about running from the Olympians (with dark elves and vampires thrown in for good measure). The major encounter with the Olympians ends somewhat early in the book, and then there is this bit where Atticus goes in search of Lord Grundlebeard and Midhir. He find them both dead, but that’s the end of that bit. There were never any answers about who killed them. Then Atticus and co. go off to see who the Morrigan left on the Time Islands, but we don’t learn that person’s identity, either (though I guessed it). The ending didn’t feel like an ending, really. The major story ended, and then a couple more bits were tacked on, but without any resolution. I get that these bits will be important in the overall series arc, but I guess they just seemed oddly placed. Did I not have Book 7, Shattered, to jump right into, I think I would have been highly irritated.

    In any case, I still liked the book and thought it was a great adventure. I’m invested in the characters, now and want to see them succeed. They keep getting into deeper and deeper trouble, however; at this point, I’m just hoping they survive!

    The main characters are chased across multiple countries and hunted by several gods. One god is no more, but her reason isn't fully revealed. Did she give up or did she put up a good fight.... Recommend the series.

    "They're Back!"

    I really didn't enjoy book 5 of the series and I almost didn't go back for book 6, but I'm glad Oberon lured me back. while not quite as whimsical as 1-4, it's so much better than 5!

    Nice plot twists and resolutions, new characters and old friends/foe. And of course the most excellent Oberon.

    "Always a a pleasure!"

    I love that each book can stand on its own but when read in order you get a better feel for what's going on & how everyone fits together. The wild goose chase that goes on thru the book tends to make it easy for the mind to wander a bit. Not good if you want to keep track of what's happening, but definitely indicative of what's going on in the story. I loved how Granuaile takes over the story telling from the to time. Love hearing her take in the situation.

    "Modern day romp with myths and legends"

    I am enjoying this Iron Druid series. Luke Daniels brings out the humor, sensitivity, adventure, and pathos that Kevin Hearne wrote. What a winning combination!

    "Love Iron Druid Chronicles"

    But how many times can Atticus almost die before reaching to find some life saving earth. I really like the series and Oberon is hilarious. It is just getting a wee too much. Brink of death. Saved. Brink of death. Saved. Repeat. And repeat. I will keep listening though. These are still entertaining.

    Story
    "It was so much better before"
    Would you listen to Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6 again? Why?

    Probably not...can't stand to listen to Granuaile! Her thoughts are whiny and weak...it just doesn't match with the story and the earth elementals calling her "Fierce Druid" she just sounds like a whiney indecisive girl :(


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunted: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 6?

    I can't think of one...maybe I should have given it less stars!


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

    Yes...they are good just am not a fan of his Granuaile and of the way her part is written.


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

    it did make me laugh out loud once


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so much better before adding Granuaile's voice. I wish it were a physical book so I could literally skip over her section! I did end up fast forwarding through some of it because I just couldn't take it!

    This is a fabulous series. Not as violent as the Dresden files but of a similar feel. Love Oberon the dog!!
