The writer is great, so much so I had high expectations for this book. However, this book felt a little "phoned in". Why? Because the book was choppy. It appeared to be more of a series of stories than one cohesive book. Further, the author used a LOT of "Filler" - meaningless dialogue between the main character and his dog and others that did not serve to further the story line or character development. There is a lot of interaction with between the main character and his dog that could easily have been cut out without any affect whatsoever on the story. The first three books were excellent. This one was average at best to slightly below average. The author moved the ball forward on some things, but not enough to take the book out of the just o.k. category. He needs to push the development of lines that show new skills, new objects, and take a stab at putting together his disparate universe of gods, magic etc. It's loose. We are told that everything that is believed exists (including gods from every religion. But we are not really told how or why all of this can be reconciled. Further, his manner of dealing with threats is routine in some cases and new in others. It would be far better for the reader if new and interesting ways of dealing things are the main focus. I would recommend the earlier books, but not this book. It is ok. The author should not just listen to those who say everything is great, because with this last book, he stumbled.

When it comes to Kevin Hearne, after his fantastic debut last year and the two sequels released in quick succession, it was hard not to be enthralled by his creations. With the epic climax of Hammered, fans everywhere were waiting to see what direction Kevin would take Atticus and Oberon next. Tricked was written and ready to be released and so when I got the opportunity to get an ARC for it, I was over the moon.

Tricked is a hard book to review because of two reasons namely, it's the fourth book of the series and secondly because a lot of its plot details are spoilers for the preceding three titles. I must warn readers that I'll be trying to avoid spoilers as much as possible however there will be some minor spoilers and those readers who haven't read the first three books can avoid the review ahead.

Tricked begins with a short soliloquy similar to the first book however this one is even more outrageous than its predecessor, it begins with the following lines:

"The best trick I ever pulled off was watching myself die. I did a respectable job of it too - the dying, I mean, not the watching!"

With such a terrific line begins the fourth entry of the chronicles of Atticus the lone druid who's witty, versatile and now hunted by the thunder gods of various pantheons for his actions across Hammered. He however has a couple of tricks up his sleeve and he turns to one of the ultimate tricksters of yore to help him in his task. This of course works on "scratch my back and I scratch yours" principle and while Atticus thinks he has it under control. Coyote of course manages to one up him with his version of a request. Not to add to his troubles is his past catching up in the form of the widow Mrs.

In my opinion Kevin Hearne was one of the best new urban fantasy writers in 2011 (and if you want my honest opinion one of the best new writers period in 2011). His books are exciting, full of intricate characters with well written dialog, and are jam packed with nonstop action. And Tricked, the fourth book in his Iron Druid Chronicles series, is no exception to this.

Tricked's action and issues spring primarily from the ramifications of Hammered. Of course, unlike most books that act as a bridge for a significant change in the story arc, Tricked is an amazing book in its own right. That's not to say that readers should not read the previous books in the series first, (being the fourth book in the series, not reading the other three books first would severely harm the reading enjoyment.) No, what is meant is that this book, like its predecessors, is well written, exciting, and full of fantastic characters, making it a must read for any fan of urban fantasy.

While so many things are incredible about Tricked and the entire series, what truly impressed me is how well Kevin Hearne balances humor, action, and a well developed plot. I honestly found myself laughing out loud at parts of Tricked (especially in the conversations between Oberon and Atticus), but at the same time couldn't put the book down because it was too darn exciting.

Hearne delivers a whole new batch of interesting gods and creatures for Atticus to deal with in this book, which really spice up the story and establish a whole new storyline for readers to get into. That brings me to another thing I love about the series and Ticked specifically, how well Hearne melds the different myths and religions while not detracting from the overall story.

Atticus O'Sullivan is the only living druid and would like to stay that way. Some Norse gods want revenge and have hunted down Atticus in retaliation for his recent escapade. So he is appreciative when the Native American god Coyote disguises himself as Atticus and lets the Norse gods murder Coyote in his place. As Coyote can regenerate his body after every death. When Coyote asks a favor from Atticus, he soon realizes it's not as simple as it seems. And the trickster god Coyote has tricked Atticus into fighting nearby evil skinwalkers for him. And unfortunately, that won't be the only betrayal Atticus will soon face.

Hearne's fantastic characters, pop culture references, and satirical wit have made this one of my favorite new series. Atticus' latest adventure doesn't take him far from home, but gives him new challenges just the same. His relationship with his apprentice has been handled well. There is attraction there, but their mentoring relationship has made any chemistry between them fizzle and seem awkward.

The fourth installment in the Iron Druid Chronicles is action-packed and even-paced. With overwhelming odds, creative use magic, and his trusty sidekick Oberon - Atticus never fails to entertain. With a new supply of new magical bad guys to fight while trying to hide his presence from the rest, Tricked is another engaging and entertaining read. Don't miss this incredible urban fantasy series.
