Publisher's Summary

Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it - and furthermore, he knows he can handle it.
When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!
Engaging the services of his faithful Druid, Oberon must travel throughout Oregon and Washington to question a man with a huge salami, thwart the plans of diabolical squirrels, and avoid, at all costs, a fight with a great big bear.
But if he's going to solve the case of the Purloined Poodle, Oberon will have to recruit the help of a Boston terrier named Starbuck, survive the vegetables in a hipster pot pie, and firmly refuse to be distracted by fire hydrants and rabbits hiding in the rose bushes.
At the end of the day, will it be a sad bowl of dry kibble for the world's finest hound detective, or will everything be coming up sirloins?
The Purloined Poodle is another exciting novella entry in Kevin Hearne's New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series.

Very cool story by Kevin and amazing storytelling

Kevin and Luke always keep me wanting more. I suggest listening to the entire Iron Druid Chronicles but only if you enjoy good stories and like to laugh.

Enjoyable but not essential reading

If you could sum up The Purloined Poodle in three words, what would they be?

An enjoyable distraction

What did you like best about this story?

Everyone loves Oberon, so it's nice he gets to be the star.

Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've only listened to other Iron Druid but he does those superbly.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

a few chuckles and smiles.

Any additional comments?

It doesn't really add anything new to the Iron Druid series, just an amusing little aside.

A lot of fun!

A fun story told from a dog's point of view. I especially loved all of the literary and pop culture references sprinkled throughout the story.
