If you like urban fantasy, but are ready for something a little different; if you like humor mixed with action; and if you are ready for a man and dog team that will melt your heart.... read Hounded. Be prepared, go ahead and wishlist the next 2 in the series while you're at it.

I am enjoying this book. Atticus is great fun and I adore his Irish Wolfhound Oberon (the dogs comments and fantasies are a hoot to read). This book has all of the nods to our modern culture while introducing us to Celtic folklore.

There is an Irish pronunciation guide at the beginning of the book so you don't get lost with all the strange names. Atticus gave out information on each God and fae as he went along, so I never got lost about who was who.

I am still reading this book, but wanted to get it a quick review before it goes on sale. So far this is a great read, I'm about 1/2 way through. I can't wait to finish this one and will be on the lookout for the rest of the books.

No need for me to repeat comments made by other readers, so I'll just say that I really enjoyed reading this wonderful, irreverent story and can't wait to read the rest of the series (which I already have lined up and ready to go!)...

A wonderful story.The characters are well developed and believable. I love Oberon,he is funny.I laughed out loud a few times. I loved everything about this book. Will read Hexed next.

A recommend try for fans of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series; in my opinion the Iron Druid Chronicles are in the same style of writing, and vaguely of the same plot-type: humorous lead character dealing with a world of the supernatural. Perhaps a bit different in that the pool of mythology - highly recommended if you enjoy mythology for any culture! Often with laugh-out-loud jokes and it doesn't drag out in 'implied' drama, but keeps moving along. Possibly a few elements of exposition spread out, but I was so interested, it didn't bother me! Can't wait to read the next, and the next, etc!

If you like Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series, you must give the Iron Druid Chronicles a try. I really enjoyed Hounded and am immediately going out to get a copy of the next, Hexed.

I was disappointed. I discovered I don't really like a lot of comedy with my fantasy.
