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.

Once again, this was an awesome ride. I had my concerns: 1) 12 years since the last full novel?!? 2) Was Kevin Hearne going to turn Granuaile into some badass magic user without an appropriate transition period? 3) I was deeply concerned that Oberon, an Irish Wolfhound, wouldn’t make into Book 5 as Irish wolfhounds have a short life span. So, first off, Granuaile still has much to learn about slinging magic. Yet she has spent 12 years working on staff and throwing knifes, so she isn’t completely defenseless against minor deities, vampires, and other such pesky bad guys. Yes, Oberon is in Trapped and I absolutely love his simple take on the world �" as long as there is sausage, all is right with the world. The passage of 12 years did not disrupt the series.

Once again, this is a very fast-paced urban fantasy. I loved that much of it took place in Greece, which allowed for a more worldly take on things. There were more moments of bare-ass shenanigans (which happens every book and a book without such shenanigans wouldn’t truly be the Iron Druid Chronicles). While there was plenty of humor, there were also several moments of greater seriousness adding weight to the underlying premise that Loki truly threatens the existence of everyone �" mortal and immortal alike. Yet another excellent read from Kevin Hearne that had me laughing out loud and finding ways to waste a little more time on the computer as I listened to the book.

Once again Atticus is running for his life as we step back into the world of the Iron Druid. After faking his death 12 years ago he thought that things would be easier. But now as he gets ready to bind Granuaile to the Earth/Gaia as the first druid made in over 1,000 years (second druid living after Atticus) he is bombarded by more death threats once word of his non-dead status circulates. This book was extremely good fun throughout it's entirety. I especially liked how Granuaile has matured and finally come into her own as a person and a druid. Oberon's commentary is as colorful as always and provides much needed humor. Which is especially hilarious in the presence of Gods & Goddesses who can "hear" his thoughts. In addition we also get reacquainted with some of the divine beings who do not have a grudge to bear against Atticus (Manannan Mac Lir and Fand, among others).

Overall the story was awesome and of course the ending will leave you exasperated and begging for more. Which will have you marking your calendars to get a hold of Hunted (Book 6 of the Iron Druid Chronicles) when it makes its debut on June 25, 2013.
