Release Date: November 27, 2012
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 Hunted
a lot more than I did Trapped
, even though Hunted
had a few heartbreaking surprises. I cannot believe that the Morrigan basically committed suicide!
I liked Hunted
a lot better, too. I never got around to reviewing Trapped
because I had a lot of bitterness issues with Granuaile, (Atticus is my boyfriend!) but I got over it for the most part. I guess hearing Luke Daniels (the audiobook narrator) as Oberon saying “Hello, Clever Girl” won me over at the end of the previous book. Still – too much bitterness for me to write a glowing review as a Kevin Hearne fangirl. But, OMG the Morrigan! And so early in the book, too…
*sigh* I may’ve cried a little, but it was a little overdone.
I think I may have a crush on Luke Daniels. He’s one of the most gifted narrators I’ve listened to. I continuously get surprised when he switches around in more than five accents in one book. Plus, he totally nails what I think a dog would sound like if a dog could actually talk.
Oh, I definitely have a crush on Luke Daniels! Plus, he’s also visually appealing – isn’t he dreamy?
