Preview — Staked by Kevin Hearne. When a druid has lived for two thousand years like Atticus, he's bound to run afoul of a few vampires. Make that legions of them. Even his former friend and legal counsel turned out to be a bloodsucking backst Iron Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, hero of Kevin Hearne's epic New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series, has a point to make—and then drive into a vampire's heart.
Even his former friend and legal counsel turned out to be a bloodsucking backstabber. Now the toothy troublemakers—led by power-mad pain-in-the-neck Theophilus—have become a huge problem requiring a solution.
It's time to make a stand. As always, Atticus wouldn't mind a little backup. But his allies have problems of their own. Ornery archdruid Owen Kennedy is having a wee bit of troll trouble: Turns out when you stiff a troll, it's not water under the bridge.
Meanwhile, Granuaile is desperate to free herself of the Norse god Loki's mark and elude his powers of divination—a quest that will bring her face-to-face with several Slavic nightmares. As Atticus globetrots to stop his nemesis Theophilus, the journey leads to Rome.
What better place to end an immortal than the Eternal City? But poetic justice won't come without a price: In order to defeat Theophilus, Atticus may have to lose an old friend.

Hopefully I will be able to winkle a copy from my husband for Valentines Day or something, but still, I totally agree with others who wonder why this book is so pricey right out of the gate.
I know I've gotten others of his Iron Druid series for much less, so I was just wondering why no trade paperback? Wdmoor Support your local libraries!
Don't buy it, check it out. Why so expensive? Emily Dejan I've noticed in several series I am following that they are being brought out in hardcover. IMO, I'll be buying more paperbacks than nook book if this trend continues. See all 9 questions about Staked…. Lists with This Book.

He's a bad ass Druid and he's always got something to say.
It usually involves fecking, shat and arsehole. He's great. Oberon a daddy. View all 28 comments. Jan 26, Lyn rated it liked it. And vampires. Lots and lots of bloodsucking, nocturnal, undead and foppishly coutured vampires.
And werewolves and ghosts and witches and gods and dwarves and trolls, etc etc. There is much good ole Irish ass-kicking and undead staking. I think it is this ancient linear connection that draws me again and again to the series.
For this reason, centuries before, the vampires had manipulated the Romans to hunt down and destroy all of the druids. Except for Atticus. And here we are. There are more than enough connections to world mythology and to cool druidic power, but there may have been a meeting with the publisher where more action was discussed. Staked is action packed from cover to cover. This is like a Schwarzenegger flik, and the subject matter fight with thousands of vampires provides plenty of opportunity for blood and guts.
Good fun. And we finally learn why Atticus does not want to be Nigel in Toronto. View all 7 comments. I don't normally add anything after I finish a book but I'm kinda pissed with how this story ended and the story in general and needed to rant even if no one will care.
Since the third book the story has been going downhill. Every book after that is just a continuation of consequences from that one book. You would think after two millennia of I don't normally add anything after I finish a book but I'm kinda pissed with how this story ended and the story in general and needed to rant even if no one will care. You would think after two millennia of existence he'd have learned to stick up for himself more rather than just accept whatever blame is heaped on him.
He needs to sack up and defend himself from everyone blaming him.
Everything he's done or been a part of stems from that action and he never defends himself from any accusations. At the end this story he gets banished from Flagstaff and Tempe, where he was welcomed for years, because "We do not want our pack to be collateral damage in his endless series of crises.
The first book is the only one that they could considered to have been collateral damage from Atticus's actions. Every time he asks for something from them he pays for it. They haven't had a significant role in any conflict since the first book. In this one it would be more Owen's fault he is the one who drew danger to them.
Since he was with them they attacked them. Her own arrogance plays a part in Hal Hauk's death. She seems to think that her and her pack are immune to strife.
They had advanced warning of possible attacks but really did nothing about it. No matter the situation if Atticus is involved she thinks it's all his fault and ignores everyone else's culpability. I personally think she's setting things in motion so that she can kill the MC or turn Owen against him. Atticus tells him there could be retaliation from the war with the vampires and he could be a target and to be prepared. After the attack he's quick to goes along with everyone saying Atticus is trouble when his own lack of preparation is the problem.
Plus he knew that it was to stop the vampires from killing ALL druids. He was going to be attacked regardless of Atticus's actions for simply being a druid and trying to train more. If he wants to start a grove and make new druids he shouldn't have been so complacent. The threat should have been dealt with before any notion of bringing children around him. He doesn't even try and help till the end is in sight and even then he makes it sound like he's only doing it out of obligation.
He trained Atticus and was a supposed to be a 'surrogate father' but he is the first badmouth him and undermine him to others. I can't recall having seen him support even one of his decisions. He might have given Atticus some belated praise in the last book but his words and actions defy it. He really needs to get his head out of his ass and treat Atticus with at least the respect of an equal. Greta is a poison and is just binding him deeper to her with making the pack children his apprentices.
I hope Atticus kills her and then at least beats him to within an inch of his life in the next book. His loyalty should be to his fellow druid and one time student but his every word and action seem to deride him. I just don't get how he can say he cares about Atticus one minute and then as soon as you turn a page he's disparaging everything he's done. At least Granuaile sometimes does something that the Atticus couldn't do to advance to story.
All Owen is, is a useless character and all he seems to do is undermine the MC to everyone else. Everything else he does the MC could do. Atticus is like Cassandra from Greek mythology warning of danger and being ignored. He excepts the banishment way to easy I get he's upset but he really should have defended himself. He warned two different people about possible danger.
A second character confirmed it. Someone should have been on the lookout for exactly what he said would happen. He's the oldest druid on the planet and presumable with all that time he has more knowledge of it the Owen. If he is removed from the education of the new batch of druids, who around Owen and Greta will be raised to believe everything wrong in the world is his fault, they will probably come to see him as some kind of enemy and will miss out on what he could add to there knowledge base.
I foresee some kind of conflict. I'm glad this series only has one more book.

I enjoyed it immensely in the beginning but now I've had to force myself to finish this story. I know almost no one will care for my opinion and I'll more than likely get trashed for it but I really needed to rant to someone. Thanks for listening. View all 13 comments. Mar 10, Bradley rated it it was amazing Shelves: There's a lot to love here and a small portion of sausage, too.
Or actually, there's a ton of sausage and other massive meat products being consumed in this novel by a certain hound, but more importantly, this novel is practically All Meat. I mean, aside from a few Doggie BathTime stories, we're inundated with action, action, plot development, a bit more action, and a big hunking slab of action to go down with not a single piece of lettuce.
No buildup required or necessary, assuming you've been r There's a lot to love here and a small portion of sausage, too. No buildup required or necessary, assuming you've been reading all these novels up to now, and you know that it's WAR. Of course, it's a one-Druid war against a world of undead because of the mass of interlocking promises and treaties he's been forced to make just to survive all his other misadventures, and of course this little nightmare is spilling over into his old Master's Druid Training Camp and his onetime apprentice is getting into her own messes, but this is a remarkably straightforward and readable adventure with loveable characters and an occasional vamp lord needing a vicious unbinding.
There's really no downtime except at BathTime, and that's fine. The sub-stories are interesting enough, but I was actually pretty damn amazed at the quality of myth research involved in this series. At a few points, I was struck with mute wonder at the complexity and ease with which it all poured out of the page, but it was never so much that I was drowned. Hearne has a particular gift, here. Aside from making wonderful and snarky characters, of course. Atticus is getting less face time because Granuaile and his old Master Owen and Oberon have almost equal page-space.
I can't say I dislike it at all. Even Haggis. It's quick and fun and easily one of the best crazy UF's out there. I'm actually rather sad that all the plot-lines are getting wrapped up, but not that sad. Nothing's worse than a frayed edge to a great series. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads.
The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book One
Atticus and Oberon have jetted around most of the globe and several planes; however in this installment they visited Canada, and tons of familiar cultural references ensued including a visit to Timmies and the hound discovering his new favourite dish: Listening to Oberon explain to the archdruid how modern tech works was priceless. Owen on the other hand is an absolute peach!
I like the direction that his tangent has taken, and of course Oberon is still the bestest of sidekicks. Luke Daniels is THE man for the job with regards to narrating this series. In this title he dabbled with some French, and even though he botched one word pronunciation, I give him full marks because the rest was on the nose.
His rendition of Owen is SO good, and the last scene with Oberon and Orla is as close as humans will ever come to dog speak. View all 3 comments. May 18, Phrynne rated it really liked it Shelves: The problem with using alternating POVs is that if they are not equally appealing to the reader then the overall book can be spoilt.
As a long term Atticus fan I enjoyed this book despite the fact that Granuaille got far too much air time. She becomes increasingly annoying with her endless lecturing about saving the earth.
I actually agree with her philosophy but do not like being lectured in a novel. Nevertheless I enjoyed the rest of the book extremely. There's an enormous amount of action and The problem with using alternating POVs is that if they are not equally appealing to the reader then the overall book can be spoilt. There's an enormous amount of action and a huge number of nasty vampires are turned into puddles of goo. Oberon is as witty as usual and discovers new delicacies to eat in each country they visit.
Then right at the end I thought the best thing was going to happen when view spoiler [ Atticus felt that his relationship with Granuaille was cooling hide spoiler ]. I got quite excited but it did not happen. Maybe in the next book View 1 comment. Feb 14, Abbie Kline rated it it was ok.
I am annoyed. I may revise my stars upwards once I actually get to finish this book. Unfortunately I had to stop reading almost as soon as I started. Because if you haven't read the novella "A Prelude to War" buried within the Three Slices anthology you're missing the first chapters of the damn story. I got maybe minutes into this book, went back to Shattered the previous book , and still couldn't figure out why I was SO confused. Then I did some googling and discovered that you I am annoyed.
Then I did some googling and discovered that you have to read the novella to truly understand how we get to the beginning of this book. Now I love me some strong female characters. I own everything Tamora Pierce has ever written. But Granuaile has yet to have a scene where she doesn't just creep under my skin and drive me insane.
To borrow from video games- she is grossly over powered.
And Atticus is far too obsessed with her and her supposed perfection. She just doesn't come off as real. ALL of her shape shifted forms are powerful and fast and amazing. She's a fantastic fighter with all sorts of weapons better than Atticus after only 12 years.
And then, when she finally does make a mistake she wallows in self-pity and philosophic musings. It's driving me up the freaking wall. Owen isn't a bad character. I like his crotchety nature. However, I'm getting sick of jumping between points of view. Atticus reeled me into this story. He was sarcastic, witty, and confident. He was comfortable walking the path that led to survival, not manly bravado.
