The Iron Druid Chronicles #6 Hunted

Just how I like this series..... Presenting The Iron Druid Chronicles #6 Hunted by Kevin Hearne.

Here is the summary of the book:

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.

After Trapped's somewhat stale environment, the calm before the storm sort of tense environment abound, with all the hiding and the low key living but Hunted brought it back to how I liked it.... The excess running full on kick-ass Atticus, Oberon and the druidery... and the running. Artemis and Diana, Loki and Hel are behind him, mercenaries and vampires and even the dark elves are on the way. Ragnarok would commence if Atticus and party just made even the slightest of mistakes. Oh and Granuaile's a druid now too.....

Celtic, Greek, Roman, Scandinavian, Slavic, Indian and every other myths and lore beautifully mixed and matched and given the modern touch through the talented pen of Kevin Hearne. Add to that the marvelous execution of humor(normal, dry and dirty) and clever use of trivia makes it an urban fantasy worth its while.

Hunted is designed to keep you on your edge, danger is always following Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon and  you don't take that lightly when its some of the most powerful Gods behind you...... This book was everything I have come to love about the Iron Druid Chronicles, its intense action, its drama, the myths, legends & lores, the humor, the trivia..... and the most important the thrill of the chase...... Never dyll moment thanks to Mr. Hearne here.... never one second of dull.

"Exhilarating chase across the continent, the coming apocalypse and the alliance of the Gods. YOU CANNOT MISS IT"
