The dialogue between the characters is also a big strength, the speech is funny and witty while remaining natural extensions of each character, and it is never used as filler material or for info dumping.
Another example of mean humor that I just did not enjoy, was the giving of wedgies to the paramedic. For the most part, Hounded is a delightful, action-packed urban fantasy novel with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, interesting characters and witty banter.
His writing also suffers from being too precise, and Hearne ends up doing a lot of telling rather than showing. I’m a big fan of the smaller urban fantasy novels that take a magically gifted character living in a mortal world while secretly interacting with a magical beyond normal comprehension.

Interview with David Dalglish Interviewed by Mihi Oh, he one bad magical power wielding dude, but without the flash and sparkle you see now of days with other books and characters.
Twenty-one hundred years old and talks like a lamebrained kid? I love to laugh. It’s a fun intro into the world, but I wouldn’t say it’ll blow you away.

Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles) by Kevin Hearne: Book Review
It gave the reader time to fours more on the ongoing story. Nor do I think it is funny to read dialogue that includes making fun of the way somebody looks.
