Book Description

25 Jun 2013 Iron Druid Chronicles (Book 19)

For a two-thousand-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, his apprentice 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.

About the Author

Kevin Hearne is a native of Arizona and really appreciates whoever invented air-conditioning. He graduated from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and now teaches high school English. When he's not grading essays or writing novels, he tends to his basil plants and paints landscapes with his daughter. 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 enjoys hiking, the guilty pleasure of comic books, and living with his wife and daughter in a wee, snug cottage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended with some reservations 2 July 2013
Format:Paperback
It's an another example of classic urban fantasy and an excellent read on its own, but the truth is, I'm getting tired of never-ending game of hide and seek. I miss the days when Atticus owned his shop, had a bunch of friends and a pretty waitress to ogle while they were out for a beer.

The tone of the series in general became much darker and in the process a lot of the lightness and humour which so attracted me in the beginning were lost. Don't get me wrong, it's a very entertaining series, but you do get tired of constant running and fighting for everyone's life. I also don't get why everyone is out to get the poor Druid, especially the vampires? He is only one man and he certainly follows the rule of "live and let live" as in you don't try to kill him and he generally leaves you alone. So, what the hell?

If you read Trapped already, you know that it ended with the beginning of a great chase by Olympians. Most of Hunted Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon spend running from Artemis and Diana, vampires, dark elves and Loki, which is a lot to handle. Atticus also tries to unravel the intrigues behind his back in Tir na nOg while simultaneously attempting to stop Ragnarok.

That's enough to make you head hurt.

There are couple of heart-breaking moments in the book, and a slightly bizarre few chapters from Granuaile's point of view, and while it's a gripping and action-driven urban fantasy, my rating is lower than usual because I think that the series in general took a downturn. I personally would love to see Atticus and Granuaile settle down somewhere and chill the hell out for a few years.

The only one with a stellar performance as usual is Oberon. He should get an Oscar for his "get to the choppa!" speech. Recommended with some reservations.

3.0 out of 5 stars series that has lost its mojo 15 Aug 2013
By Nick Brett TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In a continuation of the previous books, Atticus (along with Granuaile and Oberon) are on the run. A significant character is dead and they need to race through Europe to get to England. The first two thirds of the book is the chase through various countries. And then the showdown is in Windsor Great Park.

For me this never got above okay and the series seems to be declining. I'm sorry about that because it was a good idea and initially very well delivered with wit and clever application. But I tire of Oberon's sausage and poodle jokes and the current story thread has run on a little too long (although in fairness the author does close it down in this book).

So, a chase wrapped around some God politics and bad guys. It lacks the interaction with real people and the usual clever ideas so it is okay but not much more than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than sausages 25 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is one of my favorites. A great premise, a 2000+ year old druid and his faithful hound. Its fast paced, funny and full of interesting characters.

The series is about Atticus, the Iron Druid, a follower of Tuatha de Danann. It is an urban fantasy and based in our world. All the gods and monsters are real, from Loki to Zeus with a supporting cast of gods and devils from every pantheon.

This story continues from the last installment with Greco-Roman pantheon still chasing Atticus, his wolfhound Oberon and Granuaile, his old apprentice and now newly minted druid.

The story for the most part focuses on their attempted escape and evasion from Diana and Artemis. For the first time since the short story Test of Mettle we get to see things not only from Atticus' point of view but also from Granuailes. There are some emotional sucker punches in this book which caught me by surprise but for the most part this is more of the same Iron Druid that I know and love. It is quick, humorous, full of magic, meat products and more than a little cheese.

This is one of the rare authors who actually makes me laugh out loud.

If I have to criticize, which is difficult as Kevin Hearne is one of my all time favorite authors, the series can occasionally stagger under the weight of all the panthea and monsters it has introduced. Thankfully, very few more were added in this book.

I would strongly advise that you read the books in sequence from Hounded rather than start here but be warned you will never look at an Irish Wolfhound the same way again.

Overall, its better than sausages.

3.0 out of 5 stars hard going 5 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am sorry to say that this one was the hardest to read so far. I like the characters (and the dog) but feel they were more interesting in earlier books. The dog veered further into slapstick, which was a mixed blessing. Where I found it particularly difficult was the plot...

It basically boiled down to a chase that lasted for 4/5ths of the book, with various walk on parts by different Irish, Norse, Greek and Roman pantheon gods. None of them hung around long enough to be more than cardboard cut outs. The last 1/5th of the book became more interesting, and opened up some interesting plot opportunities, but (sad to say) it didn't make up for the rest of the book.

If this was an episode in a tv series, it would be 'a filler episode' where they are saving up for a big series climax, make a few simple, cheap episodes in the middle to cut down on costs and special effects.

On the other hand, I still like the writing style, the main characters and the world.

Will I read the next in the series... Maybe...
