Luke Daniels is an incredibly gifted reader, and all of his voices for the various characters are both unique from one another and pleasant to the ear. It's all a bit unconventional, but I love the kitchen-sink mythology going on here. Dawson as 'a rare masterpiece that's both current and timeless. Hearne slew my heart wide-open as we lose someone dear to us. 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. Even if he is over two thousand years old.
All quotes are taken from the pre-published copy and may be altered or omitted from the final copy. He attempts to not come off sexist by making her masculine and aggressive. She knows of nothing else. The coffee is always on and she is ready to chat. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book.
I don't think it's possible for Hearne to write a bad book, but Hunted is beyond good. The only problem is that they are in Romania and their normal mode of transport teleporting between realms is unavailable, so they have to run. Try as I might, I can't figure out a way to get Goodreads to let me give this as many stars as it deserves -- 6. I love, love, love this series' My Bookish Ways 'Entertaining, steeped in a ton of mythology, populated by awesome characters' Civilian Reader 'This is one series no fantasy fan should miss. When faced with a looming fate he cannot ignore, he must rise beyond anything he's ever known. Hunted by Kevin Hearne the sixth novel in the urban fantasy series the Iron Druid Chronicles is aptly named as Atticus, Garnuaile, and Oberon flee across Europe.
Events take place six years into Garnuaile's training and between the novels, Tricked and Trapped but also help to tie up some loose ends from Hammered. This is still loads of fun. And since Atticus should have had the process of binding his aura down by the time he finished the process, maybe they could have sped up how long it takes Granuaile to do it. 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. So Hearne has the table set for high adventure and epic shenanigans!! I mean, sure, I used to do it for killing time in between Jim Butchers, just like everyone else.
Character Thoughts: I love Kevin Hearne's characters. This book has many surprises and twist. If you are a fan of this series, I don't think you will be disappointed! Luckily th After a slightly disappointing last book, I am glad to say that Kevin Hearne is back with a bang in the sixth Iron Druid Chronicle. The story is enagaging and Luke Daniels does a great job with the narration. He has been known to obsess over fonts, frolic unreservedly with dogs, and stop whatever he's doing in the rare event of rain to commune with the precipitation. He is the characters in the Iron Druid series. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide and seek, the game plan is.
Good ending and a few good parts between, but this book seemed like a link between two stories more than anything else. Their success is by no means assured, as traps and ambushes loom at every turn. I was already dislike him for his betrayal, but what he did in this book, by contracting the arcane lifeleech, Werner Drasche, to hunt Atticus in attempt to get rid of Drasche and getting closer to Theophilus just made Leif more despicable in my eyes. . Can someone turn this series into a movie because i can picture it so clearly in my head. I agree with the readers that give this installment 5 stars. A new adventure, a new demon and a new druid?! The biggest problem with this book is that even though so many fights occur during it, you don't feel like anything is actually happening.
Though honestly, the emotional and intellectual challenges he faces are probably harder for him to deal with -- his Bear charm and tattoos can't help him with those. There was even a part that I skimmed. Especially because it made Oberon so happy. If you haven't caught on to the joy that is the Iron Druid Chronicles, you should remedy that, post-haste. Tons and tons of the worst luck roll ever. 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. Brilliantly done, I could see these characters spring to life and proving once again that Hearne and Daniels are beautifully matched.
Like he took a couple chapters and stretched them into a whole book. Story Thoughts: Let me start with this, even though I did not enjoy Hunted as much as the rest of the series there was still the Kevin Hearne writing that we all know and love. The epilogue has me itching to get my hands on the next in the series. Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. We got to enjoy more time with Oberon and much Our story picks up right where Trapped left off and listening to the narration of Luke Daniels provided an addictive tale that had me biting my nails, shedding a tear and wondering how Atticus would get them out of this mess. Granuaile works on her own desert project.
