Hunted - Kevin Hearne The Iron Druid Chronicles is one of my most recommended series and for good reason: it is entertaining and fun + it has broad appeal. This series is the kind you recommend to readers and non-readers alike. It's "if you're only going to read one book this year, make it an Iron Druid book" good.And Hunted is no exception to the Iron Druid awesomeness factor. It's probably also one of the most hard-hitting books to date. Which makes it hard to write a review without giving anything away.But I shall try.To fall back on an oft used and well loved (by me, anyway) phrase: THINGS HAPPEN. Hunted is aptly named, with Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberon being chased across Europe by the Olympians. (And other enemies. And frenemies. Annnnd...Atticus knows a lot of people.)One aspect that I love about this series is how conflicts in previous books come back to bite Atticus in the ass, but in a way that is completely natural--as if we're reading one long story rather than different books.Pretty sure Kevin Hearne is a genius. An adorable one, but one nonetheless.Though the world doesn't necessarily get more complex, the Ragnarok situation does complicate already complicated matters. This story arc is far from over, and we're introduced to a couple more characters that could have interesting implications for future stories. And I like it. I like it a lot. I'm ready for the seventh book.PS. And Oberon? Just plain rocks. Love that dog.
