Atticus is back with a bang (several, actually), man, I forgot just how fun this dude can be. This book picks up right where the last left us–and all the zowie plotlines–so from page 1, Atticus & co. are in the middle of several problems, there’s no waiting around for a chapter or so to establish things.
Again, Hearne doesn’t just deal with one people’s pantheon–Tricked is a mashup of Irish, Norse and Navajo stories (with a side order of several representatives from other continents). Not to mention a returning cast of urban fantasy monsters, and plain ole humans. Of course, Oberon gets time to shine after being absent for so much of Hammered, and he steals every scene he’s in.
Great story, well-paced, dynamite action and strong character development throughout. Great, great read.
