Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Hounded comes an Iron Druid Chronicles short story in the captivating Carniepunk anthology.
The ancient Druid Atticus O’Sullivan gets more than greasy corn dogs and flat soda when he visits a carnival in Kansas to which his apprentice, Granuaile, drags him. He runs across a barker with a strange power over the crowd: attractive women leave their men and disappear into an unmarked tent, never to be seen again, and the men wander away, forgetting that they ever had girlfriends or wives. When Granuaile falls under the barker’s influence and enters the tent, Atticus isn’t about to forget it and move on. He and his Irish wolfhound, Oberon, pursue her and discover the horrifying secret to the carnival’s success.

Awe Really?!?!?

The story itself is ok but the narration KILLS it. Why Kevin? Was Luke busy?

Disappointing

What disappointed you about Carniepunk: The Demon Barker of Wheat Street?

The narrator for this is not the typical for the Iron Druid series. It's also part of a larger collection narrated by Kirby. That being said, I was still hopeful he could pull it off. I was wrong, very wrong. Oberon goes from being charming and funny to perv-y and weird - what a difference a narrator makes.

How could the performance have been better?

Luke Daniels - all the way.

still a great story from Kevin hearne but.....

still a great story as with all of the iron druid chronicles but, as the reader is not that from most other books in the series, it just sounds wrong with the pronunciation of words and names sounding butchered in comparison.

should have stuck with Ragland for narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

N/A

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

N/A

Could you see Carniepunk: The Demon Barker of Wheat Street being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

N/A

Any additional comments?

For those who know the 'Iron Druid' series, Chris Ragland was better, especially his portrayal of Oberon - Oberon was hilarious with Ragland but sounds like a twit with the new narrator
