Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.
READ IT, TRACK IT IS A WAY FOR ME TO TRACK BOOKS FOR MY READING GOALS AND THEY WILL BE SUPER SHORT REVIEWS.
Tricked had a lot of face time with two of my favorite characters in Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles, Coyote and Oberon. Both characters bring much-needed comic relief and Luke Daniels voices them so well.
Atticus is dealing with a few things leftover from earlier books and manages to add more trouble on to his plate. With the help of Oberon and his apprentice Granuaile he lives to see another day. And the next installment, Trapped shall be interesting. But before I start it I’m going to check out a few of the short stories.
Side note – Atticus is REALLY old and watching him blush and fumble around Granuaile is just endearing.
“First, we need to get a buttload of nails.”
“A buttload? How much is that?”
Granuaile rescued me with her superior knowledge of indefinite units of measurement. “I believe that’s slightly more than a shitload but much less than a fuckton.”
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
