Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Hearne, a self-professed comic-book nerd, has turned his love of awesome dudes whacking mightily at evil villains into a superb urban fantasy debut. Staying alive for 2,000 years takes a great deal of cunning, and sexy super-druid Atticus O'Sullivan, currently holed up in the Arizona desert, has vexed a few VIPs along the way. High up on that list is Aenghus Óg, the Celtic god of love. It's not just that Aenghus wants his sword back—though it is a very nice magical sword—but that Atticus didn't exactly ask permission to take it. Atticus and his trusty sidekick, Irish wolfhound Oberon, make an eminently readable daring duo as they dodge Aenghus's minions and thwart his schemes with plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review

“A page-turning and often laugh-out-loud funny caper through a mix of the modern and the mythic.”—Ari Marmell, author of The Warlord’s Legacy

“Celtic mythology and an ancient Druid with modern attitude mix it up in the Arizona desert in this witty new fantasy series.”—Kelly Meding, author of Three Days to Dead

“Kevin Hearne breathes new life into old myths, creating a world both eerily familiar and startlingly original.”—Nicole Peeler, author of Tempest Rising

Présentation de l'éditeur

This ebook edition includes a special preview of Kevin Hearne’s upcoming novel A Plague of Giants.

HOUNDED

Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.

Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries. Now the determined deity has tracked him down, and Atticus will need all his power—plus the help of a seductive goddess of death, his vampire and werewolf team of attorneys, a bartender possessed by a Hindu witch, and some good old-fashioned luck of the Irish—to kick some Celtic arse and deliver himself from evil.

Don’t miss any of Kevin Hearne’s phenomenal Iron Druid Chronicles novels:
HOUNDED | HEXED | HAMMERED | TRICKED | TRAPPED | HUNTED | SHATTERED | STAKED

J'ai adoré !
Il y a longtemps que je n'avais pas lu un livre avec autant de plaisir.
Si je devais faire une comparaison, ce serait avec la série des Carnets de Dresden.
L'humour est là, fin et constant. Les dialogues d'Atticus avec le chien Oberon sont très drôles, l'univers est riche, un peu deroutant pour les noms, mais tout y est, et les personnages bien campés.
Je recommande vivement !

Si vous en avez assez des héros habituels toujours avides de risquer leur vie pour sauver le chat du voisin, voilà un bon bouquin. L'humour est un peu du genre Bruce Willis dans piège de cristal.
Comme l'a dit un autre commentaire, il y a beaucoup de lecture qui concerne surtout l'univers du personnage et moins l'action. C'est un univers riche, il faut bien çà. Et c'est un "défaut" qui disparait dans les tomes suivants puisque l'auteur vous a présenté son univers. (Au passage la suite est beaucoup moins affligée du défaut que se traine certaines séries qui consiste à faire des copier-coller de passages entiers des tomes précédents pour que le lecteur qui commence la série par le milieu ne soit pas trop paumé. çà permet de rajouter la mention "stand-alone" pour vendre plus... Donc conseil pour cette série : commencez par le début)
Pour ceux que ne rebute pas la culture celtique, livre à recommander.
Personnellement, j'ai lu toute la série, je les ai tous appréciés et j'ai beaucoup rit. L'écriture est fluide et plaisante et rend la lecture plutôt immersive.

Very nice, entertaining and catching story of an ancient, irish druid who doesn't age and fights ancient evil monsters, witches and gods in a modern setting in America. It is written with a lot of humor and is just a lot of fun to read.

Par Lady Lama TOP 500 COMMENTATEURSMEMBRE DU CLUB DES TESTEURS le 18 septembre 2011
Format: Poche
Deux tomes des "Iron Druid Chronicles" sont déjà parus:
- tome 1: "Hounded" (le présent livre)
- tome 2: " Hexed "

Cela fait un mois que j'ai commencé "Hounded". J'ai encore essayé ce weekend, et finalement je renonce, 100 pages avant la fin (ma version Kindle est en 452 pages).

Je me suis accrochée car au-delà d'un excellent premier chapitre, très prometteur (je pense que l'écrivain a sué sang et eaux dessus!), je trouvais qu'il y avait de l'idée (du déjà vu, mais du potentiel). Le héros tient une boutique d'ésotérisme dans un coin paumé des Etats-Unis. Atticus est un druide qui s'est dissimulé dans une région qui lui semble relativement à l'écart des dieux et autres créatures extraordinaires diverses, y compris le Dieu chrétien, Jésus et Marie ("Mostly she sits around looking beatific and full of grace. Keeps calling me `child,' even though I'm older than she is"). J'ai bien apprécié ce point, les auteurs anglo-saxons ayant un gros tabou vis-à-vis de la religion. Atticus s'efforce de se dissimuler des dieux car certains lui demandent des comptes depuis longtemps, notamment un dieu irlandais à qui il a volé une épée.

Atticus semble avoir 21 ans. En fait il a plus de 21 siècles d'existence: " When I go to the grocery store, for example, and people see my curly red hair, fair skin, and long goatee, they suspect that I play soccer and drink lots of Guinness.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great start to introduce a new series. 11 mai 2017
Par Marty T - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The adventures of Atticus and his Irish Wolfhound, Oberon are entertaining and fast paced reading. This is a good start to a new series about Atticus a several thousand year old Druid, and how he stays looking like a 23 year old college student. To try to avoid some bad guy God's, Atticus lives in Arizona, but is found and used as a pawn by several gods that have him in mortal danger several times in this book to achieve their ultimate goals, not caring about the end results for Atticus. Atticus isn't thrilled to find out just about every one of his old acquaintances has used him some way or another, but he holds to his word, and we meet several characters that I hope to see in future stories, be they werewolves, vampires or old Irish widows. Enjoyable fast read, once it gets going hard to stop until the end.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 If James Bond were a Druid 14 mars 2012
Par New in VT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I read Book 1 of the Iron Druid Chronicles a few weeks ago and am struggling to recall enough details of the plot to write even a brief recap. And perhaps that is all the recap you really need.

Atticus is a super hot druid (see cover) which is impressive as he is actually thousands of years old. He lives in Arizona selling tea and tarrow cards to old people and college students (respectively) while romping about the desert with his talking dog/banter buddy Oberon. Ages ago he managed to get his hands on the legendary sword Fragarach and now Aenghus Og, the powerful Celtic God and original owner, has decided he wants it back.

Atticus is the James Bond of Druids. He's powerful, routinely underestimated, has lots of nifty cool gadgets, and women frequently drop their panties for him. Although Atticus doesn't have much time for lady-fun because has his hands full battling the minions of Aenghus Og. Luckily for Atticus he is near-immortal due to an arrangement he made long ago with Morrigan, Celtic Chooser of the Slain, who has agreed to not come for him. So that's handy.

Seems like a decent setup for a fun romp. But too many things bothered me about Hounded:

1. It reads like watching a video game. Atticus battles increasingly challenging minions until finally facing the big bad. Also, like video games, Atticus regenerates life points quickly by sleeping next to mother earth.
2. The ability to regenerate quickly and being near-immortal frankly removes a lot of the tension from the battle sequences.
3. There are never any consequences to things Atticus does. The most obvious example was when Atticus beheads a baddie in full view of a mortal neighbor who basically shrugs it off because Atticus is a good guy and wouldn't have done so without a good reason.
4. Atticus has no personal or emotional journey. In fact he doesn't really seem to want for anything beyond being left alone to play with his dog and hang out in his shop. He's simply reacting to the stream of baddies that show up on his front door.
5. Is there such a thing as too much action? There is so much action going on that I started skimming. It wasn't like I was worried about how it was going to turn out (see point #1 & #2).
6. I think the dog (Oberon) is supposed to be funnier than he is. Yeah Oberon is continually asking for a harem of french poodles to frolic with. Eh...OK.

This is a hugely popular series that gets rave reviews on Amazon. It is definitely better than your average Urban Fantasy, filled with lots of action, a large cast of immortal characters, and snappy banter. If you're looking for fun, light, accessible fantasy, this definitely fits the bill. But it's also sort of forgettable. I considered buying the second book in the series but I suspect it's probably a lot like the first (if I'm missing out on greatness, please let me know). I figure I could save $8 by just putting this on the shelf and re-reading it in a year or so.

Urban fantasy isn't my thing. I love the Kate Daniels/Magic Bites series. But generally most of what I've read (Patricia Briggs, Jeaniene FrostKaren, Marie Moning) has left me cold. So maybe this book is better than I think it is, and it's simply just not my thing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A little Iron Age fun in the desert 26 novembre 2014
Par N. Trachta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I'm a geocacher and my caching name is Pohka. Many of my caches are inspired by Irish Celts and I'd placed a new cache named Samhain and because of this a friend suggested that I read this series so I decided to get Hounded and see what it's like; WOW!! A great opening to a series. I'm very impressed with Mr. Herne's look at the Celtic religion and other religions and their interoperation. With the gods being alive and interacting as they do it makes for a fun and great story. Yes, the question is out there that if the gods interact the way Mr. Herne suggests why don't we know of them more than we do; I write that off though as Atticus being a focus to their and other (witches, vampires, and werewolves) creatures actions. For me this is a 5 star book due to the writing style, interesting characters, and just general fun of the book; I'd love to see this one turned into a movie or tv series!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 When modern day meets Celtic past 17 mai 2017
Par Linda Romer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I really enjoyed reading Hounded. It was unlike anything I have ever read. It's full of humor and exciting adventure. This story is about a Druid named Atticus O'Sullivan who has been trying to stay alive for about 21 Centuries. The book contained Celtic Mythology while Atticus himself is as modern as the day. Great characters, Witches, Werewolves, Vampires, Gods and Demons.
Atticus and his sidekick Irish Wolfhound Oberon will keep you entertained in this Mythical, Modern Fantasy. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

I give Hounded 4 stars for it's funny Fantasy read.
I would recommend this book to Fantasy Fans.

I am head over heels in love with this genre of writing. Giving all the mythological figures life and voice and with humor included? What a ride! The only thing I hope is that Oberon remains alive because if he doesn't, I'll have to cry my eyes out. I found nothing that I did not like about this book. Oh my, everything moves so quickly here wound be descriptive of the writing also. I get an uncomfortable feeling about the widow down the street. Watch out for her author/Druid.
