2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 5 Nov 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
The "difficult second book". Hexed is the follow up to the rather entertaining "Hounded" and thankfully it is almost as entertaining as the first one. This time our Druid hero is attacked by some rather nasty witches and has to make some deals and alliances in order to be able to go on the offensive. One of those deals will be resolved in the next book, but Hexed is a self contained and enjoyable urban fantasy. I particularly enjoyed a brief cameo from the Virgin Mary, but that might not be to everyone's tastes! But I think it is a clever and fun series which doesn't take itself too seriously but it is not superficial at all, both effort and research has gone into this - and it shows. Looking forward to the next one already.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a great second instalment to this exciting new series. Just as strong as the first if not stronger.

The storyline focuses mainly on the witches this time. Atticus hasn't survived two millennia by being overly trusting, and when he's approached by the local witch coven to sign a "play nice" treaty, he's dubious to say the least. It seems that the witch coven, who call themselves The Sisters of the Three Auroras, has recently been attacked and lost one of their own. Malina, the head of the coven, wants Atticus to help hunt down some German witches known as the Daughters of the Third House, as well as fight off Bacchants, rogue demons...you know, just the usual.

There are great action sequences to be found, some laugh-out-loud funny lines (cue Oberon, the mind-talking dog), and great mythological elements. Kevin Hearne is excellent (and I mean EXCELLENT) at incorporating myth and legend into these modern tales. Atticus as a character is an example of this perfect blend of old and new in that he is an ancient druid with all the wisdom, knowledge and experience that that entails, yet can do an impression of a teenage student stoner like the best of them. I'm mean, like, todally dude!

Oberon still steals the show for me in these books, and if I'm honest, I would still prefer Atticus to form some closer relationships (with someone other than Oberon, that is) as I mentioned in my review for Hounded. Maybe his new apprentice could fill the role if he'd let her? She seems to think he's got a nice bum....that's a start, right?

I'm greatly looking forward to the next one: Hammered. And happily, three more books have been announced for this series: Tricked in May 2012, Trapped in December 2012, and Hunted sometime in 2013. Yay!

This is my favourite cover thus far. I'm loving the tattoos on the forearm there. Very cool.

Be honest, how many authors do you know who can mix Celtic magic, Polish witchcraft, Demons, Werewolves and Vampires?

In this book, the second of the Iron Druid Chronicles, Kevin Hearne's hero, the twenty-one centuries 'young' druid Atticus O'Sullivan, is beset by party-hearty harpies and a particularly nasty coven of heart-stomping witches. Fortunately Atticus, with over two thousand years of experience and magic-slinging is not without his own friends and resources, including his new apprentice, his blood-sucker of a lawyer, and Oberon, his talking Irish Wolf Hound, who steals every scene he appears in.

This is such a good book I would recommend it to anyone. The blending of humour and action, sadness and grim determination makes you rush through the pages, and leaves you wanting a whole lot more.

I'll stop here as I don't want to ruin any surprises. I hope you enjoy reading this story, roll on the next book, Hammered!

Awesome. I loved the first book and I'm really got the second one as well. The story continues, it's all there in the synopsis. Atticus is developing nicely and I'm still intrigued at the ideas that come from a 2000yr old Irishman with a talking hound.

I like the style of writing, it keeps me entertained and it's a way to pass an hour or two. I'll admit, I bought this in blocks after the first one, so I'm binge reading them :) And that alone is it's own review I think. If you bought the first one, this is more in a similar theme with some new bits thrown in. If you haven't read the first one - go read it first and then come back to this one.

Another cracking book from Kevin Hearne.
This time we see Atticus up against German witches with all manner of mythical and mystical creatures popping up as well.
This is my second reading of this series and it improves even more this time around

Format: Paperback
Book two of the Iron Druid Chronicles picks up pretty much right where the first book left off, following up on some of the hanging threads and rushing into new plots. A group of evil witches is coming to town, and they aren't the only threats that the last Druid will need to deal with.

I though that the first book in the series was fantastic, and so the second had a lot to live up to. Overall I don't think it quite makes it, feeling rushed and having too many elements to make a consistent narrative.

There were interesting developments and more was revealed about some of the characters, but it feels more of an action thriller with scene after scene of fight interspersed with witty banter. There's also something of a middle book feel, with the impression that it's working more to set things up for the third book than to have a single plot of its own.
