  1. I really liked the first three books As I continue with the series, it just keeps getting outrageous and messy Besides, Atticus should grow up He s 2 thousand years old for crying out loud I guess if everything comes easy for you, you ll never learn how to live with the consequences of your actions I really thought it will get better, but I got Tricked Now I m Trapped with the dilemma to either continue or abandon this story With the 7th title, Shattered , I m kind of hesitant to move further w [...]

  2. Okay I m going to try something a little different One would hope, at this point, that anyone interested in reading the Iron Druid this installment specifically would have read the previous books So instead of telling you what a clever dog Oberon is he seriously deserves a treat or mention how funny it is I SO wish I could hear the story in person of The Purloined Poodle featuring two dogs and Abe Froman, the Sausage King of Chicago or how action packed it is okay, how many Gods is this Druid go [...]

  3. I got to read 5 early Ha ha Mine is an evil laugh My only regret is that I didn t read the Two Ravens and One Crow novella that Hearne put out first It s listed as book 4.5, and I think it would have really helped to bridge the gap for me When I started this one, I hit a sort of mental speed bump when Twelve years had passed It really threw me for a loop Alas, I didn t know about the novella before I started reading this one And now, even though I do know about it I probably won t be able to rea [...]

  4. 2.5 starsWell, look at that Once again, everyone s favorite druid Atticus O Sullivan somehow managed to anger just about every deity from every pantheon worshiped by mankind Well, everyone except Perun, but that s understandable Perun is Slavic and our gods are all kinds of awesome Not too bright, but awesome This is turning out to be a special talent of Atticus s, and a good thing too, or we would have nothing to read about After twelve years of training, binding Granuaile to earth should be ca [...]

  5. Granuaile gets her time.Kevin Hearne s Iron Druid series continues with Trapped, his 2012 entry into the adventures of Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon Atticus initiate Granuaile MacTiernan has been a major character since the beginning novel of the series, 2011 s Hounded, but Trapped sees author Hearne spend time with Granuaile as she works to complete her training and become a full druid alongside Atticus And while the growing sexual tension between the two is a factor in the narrative, than th [...]

  6. Number five in the series and I really enjoyed this one At last we have achieved two Druids instead of just one and Atticus has a real partner in crime Oberon is still making his smart comments, the gods are making war and the Fae are making mischief Nothing new except that Atticus is digging himself deeper and deeper into trouble with just about everyone and everything There s lots of very clever world building and plenty of action leading to a serious cliff hanger of an ending I am loving this [...]

  7. Another time I want to go slowly and carefully as many of my friends love this series Personally I ll never really be a fan I went into this series based on the same recommendation I ve had on a few other UF series, to wit if you like Jim Butcher s Dresden series you ll like these.Mostly this just proves how differently everyone sees the Dresden series.Our protagonist here is a Druid as far as he knows the last view spoiler well till we get well into the book hide spoiler who s been alive severa [...]

  8. Loved how bad ass Granuaile s become And finally view spoiler they re together Yes hide spoiler I don t know if I would say this ended on a cliffhanger but it was definitely a BIG to be continued I can t recommend the audio version of this series enough Luke Daniels is the shit He gets 5 stars for his performance.

  9. Granuaile finally gets to shine And proves that wolfhound Oberon is correct in calling her Clever Girl.To me, it feels like this series is kind of getting back on track, although Atticus is still working through the repercussions of poor choices made back in book 3 Hammered However, Granuaile has finally become a Druid in her own right and hopefully will continue to be a steadying influence on Atticus You d think a guy as old as he is wouldn t need steadying, but she keeps him focused on better [...]

  10. After the last Iron Druid book I read I wasn t super excited for the next book in the series I cannot actually remember what went wrong, but it still got 3 stars No review though tries to remember Nope It s not coming back This book does pick up where the last left off so I wasn t left wondering on that account, but not sure why I didn t rate it higher Either way I couldn t find anything wrong with this one.Action packed, humorous, well written and fun all the way If you have read any of the pre [...]

  11. When I got the email that I was accepted for a advance copy of Trapped I almost didn t believe it I stared at the email for a few minutes then quickly downloaded it to my kindle just in case they changed their minds.At that point I hadn t read Tricked yet, I have a very bad habit of hoarding series books that I love I bounce back and forth from wanting to read it terribly to wanting to wait because as soon as I read it I will have to wait FOREVER for the next installment.So after finishing Trick [...]

  12. 2,5 5Butcher keeps raising the bar for Urban Fantasy, and Hearne just provides of the sameThis series keeps getting and uninteresting, 90 % of the characters in the books are godsNot humans, but superhumans with awesome powers However all the gods seems stupid, immature, and petty and not at all powerful compared to Atticus It s not that i have a problem with the amount of respect Hearne shows for his subject matter which is close to non existing, but what do i care , it s just makes me not g [...]

  13. Its been a while old friend AND 12 years has passed for Attacus too since his last adventure It starts with an old friend dropping in on them like a bolt from the blue who finds them easy as its ok he didn t know they were supposed to be dead he d been an Eagle for a while now plot hole solved.Then we re reintroduced to a few Irish Gods fae folk which isn t apparently clear as to why then a Norse god comes a calling it goes around a bit until we get to the nub of the story then the action begins [...]

  14. 12 years laterI love the cover for this it s so nice to see Granuaile on there And it was great to be back with the trio again adding in Oberon, of course but I have to say this was probably my least favourite book in the Iron Druid Chronicles so far.I don t know if maybe it was me not paying close enough attention or if it was just a bit all over the place, but I spent much of the book a bit lost and confused, if I m honest Just sort of letting the words wash over me rather than fully comprehen [...]

  15. I ve really been enjoying the Iron Druid Chronicles series If nothing else, just the dialog between Atticus and his wolfhound Oberon has made the books worth the read Unfortunately book five, Trapped, was a bit of a disappointment Atticus apprentice, Granuaile, has finally finished her training and is ready to be bound to the Earth and become a full fledged druid But when his many enemies learn that he s not as dead as they all thought he was, his life gets complicated So what did I not like abo [...]

  16. As usual, this was exciting book, full of interesting action and unexpected twists but I got mad by the way the business with Atticus and Granuaile got resolved When I read a book in the first person, I expect to know something about that person s emotions but the author spent time on wisecracks that on really revealing Atticus feelings.I don t know why I keep getting disappointed with the continued lack of emotional disclosure by Atticus It s clear that the author is just not going there with [...]

  17. note all phrases in brackets are thoughts from my favorite dog, OberonNALLY There were a few big finally moments in Trapped One of the biggest finally moments I refuse to spoil for you, but I think it s safe to mention that Granuaile finally became a full fledged druid in this book because we ve been waiting for it a long time and knew it was going to happen eventually Yay for her getting her animal forms Granuaile s joy at this new form elicited an extremely loud road, startling Oberon and me a [...]

  18. See this review and others like it at BadassBookReviews This book was fun trapped between a cover I was skeptical when I saw Trapped would take us twelve years in the future, but I ve learned not to doubt Kevin Hearne This book was exciting, sexy, hilarious, tense, and everything in between It is definitely one of the stronger entries in a consistently strong series.We find Atticus and Granuaile still in hiding, but Granuaile has completed her druidic training and is ready to be bound to the ear [...]

  19. Now that I am caught up to real time with this series, it seems like a good point to assess it as a whole In previous reviews, I have praised two things that are starting to become formulaic, and hence losing their luster First is the idea that Atticus s actions have consequences While I still love that their is significant plot development and that everything does not just reset to normal at the end of each book, I am starting to see a plot loop that looks something like this 1 Atticus needs he [...]

  20. I was excited to see Atticus was ready to bind Granuaile with Gaia making her the first new Druid in over 2,000 years Unlike, Atticus who carries an ancient sword, Granuaile has a tricked out staff thanks to some crafty Fey We see significant growth in this feisty, fearless young woman who smells like strawberry lip gloss It was exciting to see what animals forms she would receive and watching her experience each for the first time was both humorous and amazing.Of course, Hearne brought danger t [...]

  21. While enjoyable, this was not as good as the previous Iron Druid books that I ve listened to It centers around the initiation process of Atticus s apprentice, Granuaile, and his efforts to bind her to the earth and make her a full fledged Druid There is plenty of action but that appears to be thrown in just to provide, well, plenty of action As always, Luke Daniel s narration is excellent and, once again, he has managed to turn Atticus s mangy wolfhound, Oberon, into a comic genius worthy of sta [...]

  22. Let me start off by saying, by now it s getting pretty boring It s mostly all the same crap, with none of the fun or interesting elements thrown in.However, it s better than the last book.But then, the last book was mostly just a giant cultural insult.The power ratios are getting fairly stupid Atticus is constantly cheat coding everything that moves There re no stakes in any of the fights at all And even Atticus fun personality can t do anything to make those action sequences less boring.The cha [...]

  23. I probably would have at least TRIED to finish this, but I left it at the beach, and have no interest in going to the trouble of finding another copy The juvenalia type humor would be fine in small doses, but apparently this one wasn t edited, and I kept rolling my eyes at the one too many jokes.I cant beleive that when I first read Hounded I would have ever wanted Oberon to shut up.ry sad day.

  24. Okay, this one is of a running run than anything resembling a plot Atticus and Granuaile are coming out of the 12 year fade from the end of the last book This is a wise decision though I sense some short stories fit in there , as Granuaile needed those years for training and there s a limit to how much you can interrupt that or drag it out in a series And Granuaile the graduate druid is nineteen kinds of awesome.At least some of my trouble with the book is that Granuaile s binding is a lengthy [...]

  25. Full mini review now posted The time has come for Atticus O Sullivan to bind his apprentice to the earth Unfortunately, there are a lot of deities and magical beings out there that want him dead, and aren t courteous enough to stop trying to kill him during the three months he needs to do so How rude and inconsiderate.After twelve years in hiding with almost everyone believing him to be dead, during which he trained the first Druidic apprentice in a millennia, Atticus is shoved rudely back onto [...]

  26. After loving this series for 4.5 books, this time I hit a bump I don t know if it because I was in the wrong mood but the book felt off Or maybe because of the 12 years time jump Atticus still likeable but Oberon was slightly annoying I didn t find his quips as funny as the previous books In fact, most often, his quips felt like filler, just an annoying background noise I wasn t impressed with supposedly romance plot too PROBABLY because for the last 4.5 books, Atticus and Granuaile weren t into [...]

  27. This book jumps a whole decade It takes 12 years to train a druid apprentice and Granuaile is just about done with her apprenticeship with Atticus They just have her binding to the earth to do They ve been in hiding most everyone, including the gods, think Atticus is dead But just as they start Granuaile s binding, they are discovered Atticus has many who wish him dead, including a few different gods and the dark elves.This is my favorite Iron Druid Chronicle so far What I really enjoyed about i [...]
