Publisher's Summary

Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.

But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.

    Story
    "Another fix for us dedicated Atticus junkies."

    I was happy to return to the world of Atticus O'Sullivan and friends but at times the story felt rushed. It is often said that the second book or movie of a trilogy is lacking because it is just a glorified segue...on a few occasions that is the way this book felt. I would be hard pressed to call it either forced but some of the developing stories and loosens were handled in a manner I would call...indelicate.
    That being said, it was awesome to see Atticus going up against something that was completely out of his element!
    If you have enjoyed the previous Iron Druid Chronicles, this installment will not disappoint.

    Story
    "I love this book"
    What made the experience of listening to Tricked the most enjoyable?

    Luke Daniels is a great voice actor. At times I am so drawn into this book and the other Iron Druid books that I forget that there is just one person speaking for all of the characters. The story line in interesting, the writing is funny and witty, and the fast past action in addicting. I have listen to each book in the chronicles at least twice and I am likely to listen to them again.


    What other book might you compare Tricked to and why?

    Its hard to say, I would say that the Iron druid chronicles is a grown up version of the Percy Jackson books. They both are set in today's world and they deal with the idea of having the Gods of old being alive today. This a more adult book due to the blood and gore and sexual tensions between characters.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    I love Oberon, he is a great comic relief and they ways he speaks often reminds me of what I think my dogs would say to me.

    Story
    "Still one of my favorite series in the genre."
    What made the experience of listening to Tricked the most enjoyable?

    That's tough. The story is pretty good. You don't notice many plot holes or inconsistencies due to the wonderful character development. I have said this about other books in the series, but if you like the Dresden Files from Jim Butcher you will probably like this series.<br/>It's a lot of fun. Witty and involved.


    What other book might you compare Tricked to and why?

    The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher is one. American Gods by Neil Gaiman. There is also one called Coyote Blues which is similar, to a point.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    Oberon. Coyote is also a good character.

    "Not as good as previous but good."
    What did you love best about Tricked?

    This story was not as as good as the previous but still a good listen. If you have read/listened to the series then by all means this is one to continue the saga.

    Story
    "Perfect Marriage between material and reader."
    What made the experience of listening to Tricked the most enjoyable?

    Great story, perfectly read. Good combination of action, fantasy, and humor. I really like that there are rules to the magic and the exposure to all the different pantheons is fascinating.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Too many favorite parts to pick just one.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    I loved all of them, but Oberon makes the whole series work.


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

    Laughed out loud several times. I really appreciated the Doctor Who reference as well as the Princess Bride quotes.


    Any additional comments?

    Some relationship changes in the last book and this one. While I see how they were necessary, they were uncomfortable and sad - a sign that I am falling in love with the characters. Well written, well read.

    Story
    "Another Brilliant Adventure"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tricked to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition and print version of Tricked are equal; however, Luke Daniels is EXCELLENT at representing Mr. Hearne's characters. Mr. Daniels brings another dimension to Mr. Hearne's fantastically multidimensional writing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Too many things to list.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    I greatly appreciated Mr. Daniel's versatility of accent and voice. There was no struggling to know which character was talking and when. For anyone who is on the fence about hiring Mr. Daniels to portray their work, you should know that I actually purchased other audio books specifically because Mr. Daniels was the narrator. Listening to Mr. Daniels is like watching a movie with my ears!


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

    Yes! I listen while driving. I believe I added an extra block or two to my commute to prolong my listening pleasure.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Hearn's writing is like MSG for the ears. When you are finished with his book, you always want more. Tricked was no exception. I am anxiously waiting for the next adventure.

    Story
    "Luke Daniels is the Perfect Narrator"

    The Iron Druid Chronicles are romping stories full of wry humor, fast-paced action, social commentary, and cameos from the stars of many pantheons. With Princess Bride quotes. But it's Luke Daniels' great performance that really makes these books wonderful for me. His pacing, his sense of the story's arc, and his characterizations (particularly a wonderfully-doggy, somewhat slobbery, thoroughly endearing Oberon) carry the Iron Druid Chronicles to a new level of enjoyment.

    "excellent"
    Where does Tricked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The 3nd book in the series was good but not as great as the first 2, so I held off on this, the 4th. I should not have, it rocked! More Oberon!! Love that dog, I use the voice now for my own dog, I may even name my next one after him! Can't wait for the next in the series, coming November 2012.<br/><br/>Summary of story to me: its hugely FUN. The light friendly telling of the story is GREAT, It makes Atticus feels like a friend of yours, I want to find out what happens next throughout, and I kinda wish Druid-as-a-career could be an option in RL! I would sign up in a minute, lol.
