a great story but the change from Luke Daniels is a little jarring. love the fact there was more Coyote
A great story well read and brought to life by Christopher Ragland
Having finished the book I look forward the the next chapter and the continuing antics of The Iron Druid
Simple as that.
Any additional comments?
The openning gambit ushers the reader with Coyote in the central stage. Pairing "Coyote" and the title "Tricked" gave me a pretty good idea of what this story is gonna be... and I was right, giving an element of predictability in the book which I did not notice in previous books. Another thing new about this book is that I struggled to get through the first few chapters. I've had this book since it was published but I couldn't seem to get through it! I keep putting it down. Which is surprising because Kevin Hearne's story telling quality has always been compelling to me... except the first half of this book. So in the end I bought the audiobook version and I finally finished the book. However I found that once past the halfway mark, the story flowed in an even tempo and it was easy going until the end. It was just the first half that was hard work, but I persevered because I know that this author delivers. And, because I am an old fan of this series and I wanted to read the rest of the The Iron Druid books, and to understand the rest of the books I must read this book too. So that contributed to my persistence. Which paid off because Kevin Hearne did deliver in the end!

As always, Kevin Hearne doesn't disappoint! This series gets better and better as the books continue. Christopher Ragland rocks as the narrator!
Big fan of the series! This one is probably the least a favourite of them. There was a bit of a lull after the opening chapter, but then the story really picks up again later in the book.
I look forward to reading/listening to the next one.

I like this series, just wish the narrator would get the Irish pronunciation correct as a fluent speaker I strain to understand and cringe at the leprechaun imitations and lovely as he is I wish the bloody dog would shut up, it begins to seriously detract from the story, maybe it would be better if read but the "Barney the dinosaur with a speech impediment" voice drives me nuts. That said, it's generally a well spun tale and always enjoyable. Worth a listen to fill the Dresden shaped hole in recent releases !
