BOOK.FAVE.RAVE: HEXED (Iron Druid Chronicles, #2)

Hexed is just plain AWESOME.

If you would like to read about one kickass druid, a totally funny dog, witches, vampires, werewolves and even normal helpful people... you gotta read this.

Atticus is MY BEST HERO now. He's smart, super funny and friggin strong. His age made him very wise, thus, his inner ramblings and paranoia. I pretty much like the way his mind works. It's like he predicts the next steps. His fighting strategies are just weirdly great. The way he always gets his ear destroyed is truly annoying, yet funny too. The only awkward thing here is his constant battle against his attraction to his apprentice, which by the way, based on the book, is really hot and beautiful. I don't know why he just doesn't pursue her? I mean, he doesn't seem to have any problem with other women.. hmm.. are druids not allowed to have a relationship with their apprentice?

I can't say that the plot of Hexed is better than the first book... I think it's just about the same. My excitement with both books are the same. I'm not a big fan of witches, but they sure made this novel more action packed and hilarious. Throw in werewolves, coyotes, demons vampires and a couple of priests... perfect!

The author is soooo great, he even made me look forward to the next book... There were some questions left unanswered

>Golden apples? 
>the ear again? 
>two goddesses having turf war? 
>Atticus' love life? ;p

I wanna read the next book right away, but I also want to slow down since I don't know what to read after I finish the next two books...... hmmm.. Anywayyy.. 5 stars for ya my Atticus!!! ^_^


  1. hi :) whatta list you have here. you read all those books shown on the right side? i wish more ebooks were available back then when i'm still studying and got LOTS of time reading...

    anyway, i dunno where to put this comment so I hijacked this post. haha! it might be nice if you have a widget for this so readers of your blog can comment how nice your list is :)

    also, it would be nicer if you add a widget for easier subscription, like the 'follow by email' or the other one (sorry, dunno the name)'s like blogger's native follow me widget? not really sure.

    keep on writing reviews about the books you read. i enjoy reading them, most of the time they made me wanna read the books too. :)

  2. Hello! So glad you hijacked this post! Thank you for reading my thoughts about books that I love. ^_^

    Yes, I've read them and lots more. What can I say.. I spend A LOT of time reading. It goes to show how addicted I am to books eh? ;p

    This blog is actually my own personal diary of likes. I never thought that people would actually read it.. which is why I didn't put message boards or anything. Anyway, I followed your suggestion to put things like that here. I hope they'll be useful. ;)
