Hunted - The Iron Druid Chronicles ™ Book 6
Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Atticus and Granuaile have to outfox the Olympians and contain the god of mischief if they want to go on living—and still have a world to live in. Hunted is the sixth Iron Druid Chronicle and it would be extremely ill advised to jump into the series with this book as the plot has a ton of references to the many events and characters in the preceding books.
Cover art is provided by Gene Mollica. When we last left Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon , they were just about running from certain doom in the form of two huntresses that were facsimiles of each other across languages and cultures.

Hunted opens up with a very tense situation wherein our favorite two Iron druids and their dog are running across planes while the Morrigan is trying to buy them time. The Greek and Roman pantheons are pissed that Atticus has managed to trap Bacchus in a time trap of sorts. So Diana and Artemis have been sent to capture the recalcitrant druid and bring him to heel.
Atticus also has Granuaile and Oberon with him across his trek across Europe and he will also come across previous enemies turned allies like the Polish witch coven and surprisingly an ally turned enemy that is Lief Helgarson. Hunted is many ways a thriller of a book than just a regular urban fantasy book. What I really enjoyed about this book is that not only do we get Atticus in all his snarky glory but also Granuaile who gets to be a major POV character with this book.
Previously she only had a POV in a short story but with this book due to certain events, it becomes highly imperative for readers to see what she thinks. Like I mentioned previously this book reads much more like a thriller and kudos to the author for structuring this book this way. The author also brings to the fore several storylines that have been fermenting across the last two books and a novella.
I was very concerned about this book after the less than fun experience I had with its predecessor. This book does overcome the problems faced by Trapped but not the extent that I would have liked. The book very early kind of splits up into two plot threads and then continues before joining up again in the middle.

This move along with the plot twists does help in making this book much more unpredictable than its predecessors. I've a similar complaint like my colleague Casey in regards to a certain plot twist that occurs in the start and then the author tries very hard to retroactively show how it all fit in the past. Overall I would easily rate this below the first three as that trio has set the bar really high for the sequel books and it remains to be seen how much the last three will adhere to the awesomeness of the first three books.
I was expecting Ragnarok to happen in this book, but it looks like we're not there yet. Plot happened, but the overarching story didn't move very far. The last two books have felt very middle-book-of-the-series to me. After read On one hand, we get more interesting foes and mythologies, some new magic, Granuaile starting to come into her own, and Oberon , who is always delightful. On the other, once the main conflict of the book is dealt with, Atticus promptly ditches Granuaile and Oberon to try and deal with it on his own.
The outcome of that doesn't really bother me, except that there's a whole lot of time spent in this book on action sequences with no particular bearing on character development. In this book, we also got chapters from Granuaile 's perspective. Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher.
Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat. Plenty of action, humor, and mythology keep this book fun and interesting. A snappy narrative voice. Make that legions of them. 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.
But his allies have problems of their own.
