Fantasy Book Review: Hunted

Hunted by Kevin Hearne

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.

Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon are still on the run. Greek gods want them dead. And Atticus is trying to stop Hel and Loki from starting the end of the world. Unlike a lot of urban fantasies, these characters develop and change throughout the series. Atticus and Granuaile’s relationship has grown to more than just master and apprentice. And Atticus loses someone close to him at the beginning of the story.

This is the sixth installment in the Iron Druid Chronicles. This unique and inspired series never disappoints. From a variety of gods from all religious backgrounds to vampires and fairies – this series is full of magic, mystery, adventure, and humor. Unpredictable and impossible to put down, Hunted is fast-paced and exciting – and once again left me eager for the next in this exceptional series.

As a bonus, the previously e-published novella “Two Ravens and One Crow” is included in the back of the book.
