Review: Hexed by Kevin Hearne (Audiobook)(Rating 4.25 Wine Glasses)

Posted August 19, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 8 Comments


From Goodreads: Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty—when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II.

With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas with their special brand of deadly decadence, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt. But aided by his magical sword, his neighbor’s rocket-propelled grenade launcher, and his vampire attorney, Atticus is ready to sweep the town and show the witchy women they picked the wrong Druid to hex.

Sorry Melissa but this is a SNORT Club Member Book!

NOTE: Hexed is the 2nd book in the Iron Druid Chronicles. I am going out on a limb to say this is probably one of the funniest series I have ever read. I highly recommend the audio version as Luke Daniels does a great job with the narration.

What I Loved: Lief—seriously the last few chapters when the vampire tried to become hip had me in stitches. Oberon is still the world’s greatest dog and his moments were just as fun. Atticus had his hands full with witches in this installment and that added an interesting array of characters. There were a few very emotional moments which balanced out the lighter moments in a way I did not expect.

What I Liked: Many of the side characters that were in the first book, Hounded, reappeared in this book. They really added a wide array of personalities and made the story “pop” with layers that I did not expect. I liked that Atticus is extremely loyal to those that he counts among his friends. There were many moments that I was cheering for the bad guys to go down (channeling a little Oberon there–or at least how I think he would say it)!

Complaints: none

Why I gave it a 4.25: This was a fun addition to an already fun series. I would recommend Hexed to anyone who reads Fantasy books and even those that don’t. Please, if you can, get it on audio–YOU WON’T REGRET IT!

    Oh… I am not familiar with this series. It sounds awesome (adds to wish list) Have you read the printed book as well? I am not very good with audio – I get too distracted. thanks for the review!

    I really need to just suck it up and get myself an Audible membership. I read so many great reviews of audiobooks and they'd be great to listen to at the gym or while I'm working and then I never get around to it. This sounds like a great candidate to enjoy as an audiobook too. Thanks!
