Genre: Adult

My Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

For a two-thousand-year-old Druid, Atticus O’Sullivan is a pretty fast runner. Good thing, because he’s being chased by not one but two goddesses of the hunt—Artemis and Diana—for messing with one of their own. Dodging their slings and arrows, Atticus, Granuaile, and his wolfhound Oberon are making a mad dash across modern-day Europe to seek help from a friend of the Tuatha Dé Danann. His usual magical option of shifting planes is blocked, so instead of playing hide-and-seek, the game plan is . . . run like hell.
Crashing the pantheon marathon is the Norse god Loki. Killing Atticus is the only loose end he needs to tie up before unleashing Ragnarok—AKA the Apocalypse. 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.

I was on the fence about writing up a review on this book. I was on the fence about the rating I would give it as well. I decided I would just do a mini review and I thought perhaps I would edit my original rating as well.

Originally I rated Hunted 2 stars but after deliberating on it for a few months now I decided I would give it one extra star. My 2 stars was based on my initial feelings on the book.

Hunted was still full of drama and action. The snark was there although it felt a bit off. The entire world of entities with special powers including representatives of all pantheons was in this book and after Atticus. He’s done pissed off errybody! He’s on the run with Granuaile and Oberon not far behind. Being on the run is what provides most of the action. This novel is broken up into alternating POV going between Atticus and Granuaile. Although some people are liking the female touch, I am not. I didn't like it.

My biggest aggravation is coming from a place where I feel like it’s all been done before. It’s more of the same and I didn’t feel like the story went anywhere. It did but it didn't.  I’m also finding an emotional connection missing from this whole thing. For the longest time Atticus has been about himself and Oberon. I get that he’s been around for a very long time but I remember thinking that when he was talking about his kids, it didn't feel as if he loved them. I’m feeling the same way about it with Granuaile. We know they are together, we know they should have this crazy connection but I’m finding it hard to believe. Crazy thing is I don’t doubt for a second that he loves his dog, Oberon. Maybe the author struggles with human love? I don't know...

Final verdict:

2 Stars Because that’s how I felt and still feel.


1 Star Because it wasn't a bad read I’m just frustrated right now.

I’m still a fan but I might not read the next one right away.
