The second book in this series, while still short, manages to give us an interesting story and begins to build the characters.
Narrator: Luke Daniels
There is nothing funnier than a story from the dog’s point of view, especially one as complex as Oberon.
Nightshades is too short to meet its potential. It attempts to be unique but is mostly the same old, same old vampires story. It could have been so much more if only more time was spent developing the characters and the plot.
An amazing new series by Kevin Hearne chockfull of wonderful and compelling characters. A captivating story full of excitement, danger and sacrifice. I was so invested that I absolutely hate the fact that it ended and I have to wait for two more stories to find out what happens. This is a Must Listen To Audiobook since Luke Daniels once again brings an over the top performance and he split the narration with Xe Sands. This is my first Xe Sands audiobook, but I am going to look into her other narrations.
Atticus gets a magical stake and it’s time to take on the vampires.
It is time to meet Atticus’s archdruid, Owen Kennedy and life will never be the same.
I love this series and Oberon is a big part of that love. I love having the whole story told from a dog’s perspective, including explaining the importance of butt sniffing in solving crimes.
Hunted was a non-stop chase. Trying to find places to stop was painful. Atticus and Granuaile were on the run from the Goddesses of the Hunt, Diana and Artemis, and they can’t shake them, especially when they find vampires, dark elves and assassins in their path. Tensions stay high and also be read for a period of mourning.
I love the change up of the storylines in this series as well as the proper balance of pantheons. I have forced myself to put this series aside for a few books so I don’t catch up too quickly. I still have four more books to enjoy before the next in 2017.
Hammered wasn’t as good as the prior two novels, but it is important in that what happens here has a significant impact on the rest of the series.
