NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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, 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.

I enjoyed this book! I have been slowly working my way through this series over the past couple of years so I was eager to pick up this installment. It was so easy to slip back into this world and I had a great time going along on this adventure with Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon. This is the sixth book in the series and I would recommend reading this series in order. I found this to be a very solid installment in the series and I was entertained from beginning to end.

After a battle, Atticus and crew are told that they need to run across Europe. This would be challenging enough on its own but they must avoid being killed by the Olympians, Artemis and Diana. There were a few times that things looked really dire for Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon. It is always interesting to see how Atticus is able to get out of some of the situations that are thrown at him. It was great seeing Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon working together as a team.

Luke Daniels does such a great job with this series. I love the voices that he uses for the various characters. I think that the voice that he uses for Oberon perfectly captures his personality and adds just a bit of humor to the story. I thought that he was able to add just enough excitement and emotion to the story to keep me glued to my headphones. I believe that audio is the way to go with this series.

I would recommend this series to others. I found this installment to be filled with fantastic characters and plenty of action. I cannot wait to read more of this wonderful series.

  1. I like it when I can slip back into a series so easily–it helps when I don’t wait so long between books like I sometimes do though. LOL I haven’t tried this series before, but I think I would like it if I did. I am glad you enjoyed Hunted, Carole!
