Hunted is the sixth and latest book in Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles. It picks up immediately after the events ofTrapped, the previous book. Atticus (The 2000+ year old Druid,), Granuaile (the freshly made druid), and Oberon (Atticus’s Wolfhound) are literally on the run from Artemis and Diana—the Greek and Roman goddesses of the hunt. But, like with all the other books in this series, those two goddesses aren’t the only ones after our heroes. He also still has to deal with a traitor among the Tuatha Dé Danann, he still has to worry about Loki and Ragnorok, sprinkle in a few angry vampires, and you have the usual host of characters who want to kill Atticus.
I have to give some major kudos to Hearne. This story had one particular part that I was totally NOT expecting. Both the event and the resolution caught me by surprise, which is not something that happens very often. Of course I’m not going to say what it is here. It’ll just have to suffice for me to say that I was left speechless and wondering for a couple of chapters.
Hunted, like all of the other books in the Iron Druid Chronicles, is a fast-paced, exciting, and comic adventure. I’m a bit disappointed that I’ve caught up to the series and must now keep waiting in between book releases to continue the story.
