Hearne has an almost limitless world he’s made for himself, but he seems intent on refusing to use it.
I think though, more than being angry at the abusive relationship the author is pushing, I’m angry about something else. View all 3 comments. Customers who bought this item also bought. And I adore her. She’s upset that all the ancient gods she’s meeting are not like Jesus. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? It’s ridiculous, and beneath the reader’s intelligence. I do like the binding ritual — I though Granuaile’s animal shapes were great and I loved it when she was practicing to shift.
Oberon is still making his smart comments, the gods are making war and the Fae are making mischief. I also have a feeling that Ragnarok is on its way, especially if the next book is truly the last in the series. Hearne has escalated the action along a linear path of gods opposing Atticus and him figuring ways around them killing some, neutralizing others, pissing a lot of them off.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Makes my job a lot easier! Acting more like a ten year old throwing fits, than a grown woman. Atticus salivating over Granuaile is just disgusting. I don’t know if maybe it was me not paying close enough attention or if it was just a bit all over the place, but I spent much of the book a bit lost and confused, if I’m honest.
He uses Jesus as a character putting words in His mouth and ranking Him with mythological deities. It’s listed as book 4.
Hearne has made Atticus face the consequences and to try to make amends. Old grandpappy goes after MUCH younger woman and wins her. Oberon can be quite the card. But I didn’t think it was and hadn’t had that expectation, so their development of a deeper relationship fit in nicely and I was glad Hearne chose to go there. Second is the interspersed short stories. No trivia or quizzes yet. Good fun, more developed than some the previous novels and still with Oberon the Irish Wolfhound getting the best lines.
For the most part I think Ania has already nailed the strengths and weaknesses of Trapped in her review.

But I can still see some good things in this book. On the downside, the book was predictable, especially with dragging out the binding. I will also say this as it annoys me personally and I think some would like to know going in. The universe in the series, withstanding the magic, is strongly rooted in our reality.
Our protagonist here is a Druid as far as he knows the last view spoiler [ well till we get well into the book hide spoiler ] who’s been a Another time I want to go slowly and carefully as many of my friends love this series. No, it’s not cool to sleep with your students, Hearne.
Trapped (Iron Druid) by Kevin Hearne : Book Review
None of that bothers me, but here the writer lumps Christianity and Jesus Himself into “mythology”. He also thinks tacos are a pretty nifty idea. How did you know? Blood of the Rtapped. Fantasy women that you want to tup have no place in a novel. Oberon is the way and the truth, Bacon Testify!
Not enjoying Trapped 5. Because men apparently just can’t control themselves around women. English Hhearne a language for shopping. Jan 12, Kimberley doruyter rated it really liked it. Action packed, humorous, well written and fun all the way. You’re concentrating far too much on Gods. And be sure to bring extra sausages for Oberon! Read the Magic Rises review. Atticus, it’s got me!
She became an amazingly strong individual and I totally have a girl crush on her now.
