Trapped | Kevin Hearne

Trapped (The Iron Druid Chronicles #5) by Kevin Hearne published 27 November 2012

After twelve years of secret training, Atticus O’Sullivan is finally ready to bind his apprentice, Granuaile, to the earth and double the number of Druids in the world. But on the eve of the ritual, the world that thought he was dead abruptly discovers that he’s still alive, and they would much rather he return to the grave.
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.

How was it? Contrary to Tricked, who was kind of – much needed – swerve from the “main story-line” Trapped is that breath of fresh air The Iron Druid Chronicles needed. In this book we are smartly lead to the a place that would revives some old story-lines. It’s a whirlwind but one hell of an entertaining one. It’s face-paced with exciting passages, some serious action that is thrilling. There are frustrating moments a few that would make you think “Jeez let a beech get bound.” Or funny exchanges like “Poochism” and many others. Oberon is in top form in this one, he’s seriously the heart of this book series, it doesn’t work as well without him.

Trapped has depth, a great dose of culture, amazing geeky references, action and fun. It might be the one book that I might return to revisit in its entirety.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
