Hunted by Kevin Hearne, 384 pages, read by Elizabeth, on 07/16/2013

I just finished Hunted by Kevin Hearne, the sixth in the Iron Druid Chronicles. It was, like the previous books in the series, absolutely fantastic. This is urban fantasy at its best.
Hearne’s series tells the story of Atticus O’Sullivan (an alias for Siodhachan O Suileabhain), a 2100-year-old Druid who finally stands up to one bully only to find himself in deeper and deeper trouble. Atticus has a faithful companion in his Irish Wolfhound Oberon, whose hilarious comments provide much-needed comic relief in the midst of Atticus’s life running from one disaster to the next. Atticus and Oberon also have a new companion, a newly minted Druid named Granuaile with whom Atticus is in love. In Hunted, Atticus, Oberon and Granuaile find themselves in the familiar position of running, this time from angry Olympians out for blood.
The story is action-packed, full of twists and turns, smart and funny. I absolutely loved it. My only complaint is that now that I’ve finished it, I have to wait for the next Iron Druid story.
