Having no other choice, Atticus, his trusted Irish wolfhound, Oberon, and Granuaile travel to the base of Mount Olympus, where the Roman god Bacchus is anxious to take his sworn revenge - but he’ll have to get in line behind an ancient vampire, a band of dark elves, and an old god of mischief, who all seem to have KILL THE DRUID at the top of their to-do lists.

Not as good as some of the others in the series
I started the Iron Druid Chronicles some time ago and liked the books, but it was the narrator that I really liked. And now someone's gone and had him reading Shakespeare or something for the last six months... what happened? He used to sound like a guy, telling me his story (which was a big part of the attraction), and now he sounds like a Narrator, With Extra N, all deep, abnormal voice and over-pronunciation like I'm listening to Theatre.
Otherwise, the book was pretty good... it continues the saga into the beginnings of Ragnarok. I especially enjoyed the part where Granuaile is able to shift and Oberon is laughing at her. *I* was laughing so hard I nearly wet myself, and had to excuse myself from the office to outside.
I just wish the ending was a little more climactic... maybe it's because I'm listening, not reading, but the endings always seem so rushed. Overall, it was pretty good, though I liked some of the previous books better.

Best since Hounded
When I read the first book in the Iron Druid Chronicles, I was so happy to find a fresh story with a like-ably flawed hero and his dog. I'll be honest, I've professed my love of all things Oberon so often it's almost embarrassing. But he's here in all his bacon-loving glory. And I'll just say it - I can't stand a hero who's supposed to be hundreds or thousands of years old and has the mentality of a teenage boy. Atticus is witty, but he's not stupid. And he's often wrong, because he's human, but that's what makes it fun when the angry gods are chasing him around.
If you're reading this review, then you've probably already read the rest of the series. Maybe you got annoyed with Coyote, or didn't like the sad bits in the previous books. Trapped moves beyond that, and Atticus has to pay for his previous shenanigans with Granuaile and Oberon at his side, but it's all fun. I found myself enjoying Trapped as much as I'd enjoyed anything in a long time. Plus, there are dark elves. I'm going to keep it spoiler free, but trust me, you won't be disappointed. Five Stars.
I can't wait for Hunted.
