Publisher's Summary

After 12 years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave.

Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief, who all seem to have KILL THE DRUID at the top of their to-do lists.

    "Trapped in Confusion"

    This story was definitely an improvement over the last few stories. While I did enjoy it, I found much more wrong with it. (Spoilers...kinda).

    To start, I was quite disappointed that we didn't get to see any of Granuaile's training. None. And that was the biggest problem with this story. Everything else I found lacking in this novel wouldn't be an issue if we were able to see Granuaile's training. 12 years later and training complete, I find it very unbelievable that she would react the way she did in certain situations, or she would ask questions that should have been asked and answered a decade again. And, seriously? You want me to believe that she and Atticus were able to go 12 years of physical contact/marital arts training without caving to the crazy sexual chemistry?

    Another issue I have is Atticus suddenly displaying their traits or quirks that only last for the duration its usefulness and never to show up again. Back in Book 3 while he was in the Norse plane he had Spock and Kirk debates in his head. Very Angel-Devil on the shoulder style. That never showed up. This time he mentally holds conversations with the figment Archdruid mentor in his head. Now, these traits wouldn't be a problem if comments similar to "I do this when I'm bored or stressed" weren't tagged along with those traits. But they never show up again. It's nitpicky, I know, but it really bothered me.

    Anyway, I did enjoy this story. I loved Granuaile saving Atticus, although I would still love to see her training. I enjoy the direction Atticus's relationship with Leif is. He should just give in. Stop fighting it. Embrace the vampire. And I look forward to this next few stories. As long as Oberon is around, I'll still be here.

    Story
    "Feels a bit like a placeholder in the story"
    If you could sum up Trapped in three words, what would they be?

    Paranoia pays off


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    the dog, because he's full of wry commentary


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

    enjoy the whole series


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    I like this series. This particular book felt a bit more like it was a waystation between larger developments, rather than a real plot line of its own -- that is, it was a lot of things that happened around the attempt to initiate his apprentice as a druid. I'm invested in the series, so I was happy to spend time with them and see Various Crises Dealt With, but I was just more aware than with most of these books that this was part of an ongoing story rather than a tidy story in itself.

    "Still my 2nd favorite urban fantasy"

    The stories have a bit too much going on. I prefer the build up to fight one bad guy instead of four five big fights. But the charters are great. As is the banter.

    I like black tea, crossword puzzles, food, yarn, and my boyfriend. Everything else is hit or miss.

    Story
    "Stunning, As Ususal"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Trapped to be better than the print version?

    YES, infinitely so. Even if it were not for the stunning and masterful performance given by Luke Daniels, the prevalence of words, phrases, and names in other languages (especially the Gaelic ones) make this far easier to listen to than to read.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    The vast number of voices and the consistency he brings to his characters. They really are alive when you're listening, and given the sheer scope of the cast of characters in this series the fact that they all have their own voices is impressive beyond belief.

    "Must Read. MUST"

    Best book in this series thus far and by long measure. Very funny, intense action and plot formation with sexual tensions running high between the wise Druid and his lovely, badass apprentice!

    "Just when you thought things couldn't get worse.."

    In this installment our poor favorite druid, druid in training, and Irish Wolf Hound couldn't get worse. But it does. The bright side is it makes for another great read. I have already got the next book "Hunted" and can't wait to hear how they manage to get through the mess awaiting.

    "Best series in years..."

    I'm loving the relaxed style a la Dresden and the original Laurell K Hamilton novels. Unlike Hamilton, Hearne has been able to maintain badassery (in the words of Oberon the hound) without devolving into a freak show. Excellent reader, pacing, and story. Write faster. I'm catching up....

    "Excellent"

    Another fine book in the series. I'm honestly not sure whom I prefer anymore: Dresden or Atticus. Oberon really makes these for me though. Fully worth the listen.
