Thanks to his relationship with the ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan, Oberon the Irish wolfhound knows trouble when he smells it--and furthermore, he knows he can handle it.

When he discovers that a prizewinning poodle has been abducted in Eugene, Oregon, he learns that it's part of a rash of hound abductions all over the Pacific Northwest. Since the police aren't too worried about dogs they assume have run away, Oberon knows it's up to him to track down those hounds and reunite them with their humans. For justice! And gravy!

Engaging the services of his faithful Druid, Oberon must travel throughout Oregon and Washington to question a man with a huge salami, thwart the plans of diabolical squirrels, and avoid, at all costs, a fight with a great big bear.

But if he's going to solve the case of the Purloined Poodle, Oberon will have to recruit the help of a Boston terrier named Starbuck, survive the vegetables in a hipster pot pie, and firmly refuse to be distracted by fire hydrants and rabbits hiding in the rose bushes.

At the end of the day, will it be a sad bowl of dry kibble for the world's finest hound detective, or will everything be coming up sirloins?

The Purloined Poodle is another exciting novella entry in Kevin Hearne's New York Times best-selling Iron Druid series.

Love reading Kevin Hearne and this was no exception. He gives characters such life one expects to meet them someday. A quick read, but quite entertaining. Kevin makes one wish to be a Druid like Atticus.

This was fun! I kind of jumped ahead by reading this one when I did but I have no regrets. I needed a shorter audiobook that both my daughter and I could enjoy on a short road trip. We started another book and both hated that narrator so I downloaded this book and decided to give it a try. I think it worked well out of order although a few things in Atticus's personal life were different than in the earlier books. We both had a lot of fun going along for the ride as Oberon worked to solve the mystery with a little help from Atticus. I have enjoyed the books that I have read in the Iron Druid Chronicles so far. My favorite part of the series has been Oberon from the start. When I found out that there were stories from Oberon's point of view, I knew that I had to have them in my life. It turns out that this story was just as good as I had hoped it would be. I just love the Oberon looks at the world. Oberon and Atticus learn that several champion dogs have gone missing and they decide it is time to help figure out what is going on. It was a fairly involved mystery that involved a lot of pretty awesome dogs and a lot of excitement. It was great meeting Starbuck and I thought he was the perfect addition to the cast. I loved the way that Oberon and Atticus worked together along with Starbuck to get to the bottom of the missing dogs. Luke Daniels did an amazing job with this story. I think that he does a great job giving a dog the voice that is just perfect for his character. I could have easily listened to this book in its entirety if my life would have made it possible. I thought his delivery was very well done and I love the way he delivered the more comical parts of the story. I would recommend this book to others. I think that readers of the series are not going to want to miss this one. Readers new to the series could start with this book but it is really best to read these books in order. I can't wait to read more of this exciting series.

Mr. Hearne is a true master of telling an awesome tale. This has been the greatest series I have read yet. Even the novellas have made this a fun and exciting adventure but this was my favorite one.

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2 Awesome as always!!!! I loved this novella that Mr. Hearne wrote for us. The Purloined Poodle is told from Oberon’s point of view. Oberon is one of my all time favorite character!! So listening to him tell this story was great. Of course the amazingly talented Luke Daniels narrator this book when makes just that much better. So in the Purloined Poodle Oberon and his trusty sidekick Atticus are on a mission to solve a murder. It was a fun journey! It was also great to see all the wonderful places in the Pacific Northwest that showed up in this story. The only thing that made me sad was that this story was short. I can’t wait for the next installment in the IDC and I hope that we will get more of Oberon's Meaty Mysteries Disclaimer: I purchased this book from and this is my honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

I just LOVE Kevin Hearne. Can I say that? Literary references, historical references, RPG references, sci-fi TV show references. Specific episodes, even, like the X-files episode with Big Mike. I just want to hug this guy and call him family. Yes, all those references are made in The Purloined Poodle, in addition to it being a great mystery. Oberon, Atticus’s Irish Wolfhound and comic sidekick, gets his own story from his own point of view, and it’s wonderfully done. From the inaccurate sense of time to the obsession with meat to the ongoing battle with squirrels and other distractions, we really get a sense of what it’s like to be Oberon in Atticus’s world. The book had me laughing the entire time; but I cannot WAIT for the audio! I feel sorry for Luke Daniels, as voicing Oberon for a whole novella has got to kill his voice for a few days. But OMG it is going to be so epic. Lots and lots of geeky love for this awesome novella.
