You know how it is, sometimes you are just so caught up into a series, that you are reading them (or listening to them) so fast that you have barely time to review them. Then, add the a serious tight review schedule and … there you go, you forgot to review books you absolutely loved and truly enjoyed! That’s why I bring you today a series review. (You can read this one savely, there are no spoilers in this review! Be warned, this is a big post and … there is a giveaway at the end!

Witty and downright hilarious
“Now go and stake some vamps. Especially the sparkly emo ones.” Hammered, Book 3“The tendency of modern American women to exclaim ‘Hiiiiiiiiiiii!’ in soprano octaves and hug each other upon sight can be disconcerting to those unfamiliar with it.” Hexed, Book 2
“Whoa. He had ghouls on speed dial. My lawyer kicks so much ass.” Hounded, Book 1
Love – or the lack thereof!
With me being me, I have to say a few words about love and romance. There is not much, there are always little small innuendo’s but there is no bog glowing romance in this series. It makes me sad, but knowing me and the fact that I still give this series a full raving review and rating should tell you how epically awesome this series is. However, looking at the cover of the upcoming book 5 “Trapped” there is a girl on the cover. Dare I to hope for romance? Anyhow, the readers knows who is the girl on the cover: It’s Granuaile the girl he meets in book 1 Hounded and who became his apprentice. There was some tension between them in book 4 Tricked which I hope will explored more! However, this is not a romance story and love in any case will only play a small part of this story. This lack however, does nothing to my utter enjoyment of these book!
yep… you got that right, totally deserves the magic rating of awesome!
The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne rocks big time and has everything from witty dialogues,awesome storylines up to epic characters that kick ass! The Iron Druid Chronicles is one of the best series for both male and female with Urban fantasy and supernatural elements combined in a utterly unique and refreshing way. Woman will fall for Atticus and men will admire his bad-assery – together with the incredible humor in the series, this is a must-read. Period. Each books has a mystery to solve but there is a transporting and underlying storyline that glues all the books together!

He not only gave Atticus the perfect voice, but gave Oberon the best voice ever!! If he wouldn’t be already so incredible funny, Luke Daniels would do the job for him. Considering that I often listen to audio’s in public, I know get the funniest look when laughing out lout, or trying to surpress a giggle!
