Audio Book Review:
Tricked by Kevin Hearne is the 4th book in his Iron Druid Chronicles. Tricked rekindled the passion and unique characters I have come to love so much. Thank Goodness! In Tricked Atticus’ life was thrown into the ringer. Truly. Everything is in the air and Mr. Hearne did a great job with so many changes going on. Coyote was as tricky as ever and I enjoyed the Native American aspect in Tricked. We learn a little more about Atticus’ history in Tricked and I am enjoying the relationship progression between him and Granuaile. The skinwalkers in Tricked were things straight out of some kind of nightmare and added a great element of terror to the book. All in all this was a good addition to the series.
The audio was brilliantly done. I don’t think anyone does it better than Luke Daniels. Luke Daniels has narrated all the books in this series and did not disappoint in Tricked.
Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shapeshifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.
I rate Tricked 4 out of 5 Bullets
