I have recommended this, and the others in this series to a friend. This story was just as good as the last two, but it wasn't as light. Some serious stuff went down in this installment. I enjoyed it very much.
This book is unlike any other series I've read before, it's unique and it's good.
Luke Daniels is brilliant and amazing. I love his voice and I love the vitality he gives to all the characters.
The stories that the victims (of Thor's bad behavior) told to each other, along with the battle scene, those were moving moments of this story.
I can't wait to get into the next book.
Good god, I freaking love the way Mr. Daniels narrates the story. His voice acting is superb, and the story was great! Some parts were a little ridiculous, but the humor was well done, and I highly recommend this series. :)
Say something about yourself!
I've listened to three books in this seies. While there are moments of real creativity, I think I'm done. It's a comic-book approach to subjects that could support much better stories. Jesus Christ shows up and stops a bar brawl. A vampire kills Thor (spoiler). Writing this, I regret listening to it..
Mainly a sci-fi, and fantasy junkie who also enjoys horror, whodunnits, and books about animals and sports. I'm also an amateur filmmaker.
I really enjoyed books 1 and 2, but not this one. In fact I was really bored with it by the time it ended and considered aborting it before then. The whole quest seemed really pointless and petty. I'm uncertain whether I'll continue this series now after listening to this book.
I think it would be about the same.
It would be hard to pick one. There are a number of colorful charactors.
He does a good job on the narration. I think it fit the book well.
No extreme reaction but it was a fun book.
I found this author through searching for Luke Daniels. What an awesome pair! The truth is that I typically dislike genre very much and if the author and narrator were anyone else, I doubt I'd find it interesting...that being said, for a fast paced and hilarious getaway, this series fits the bill.
Between a talking dog that should have his own stand-up comedy tour, pretty women and a drunk Jesus eating fish and chips, what's not to love?? Luke Daniels narrates these books with epic perfection and although I'm sure many women will like these books, there is no mommy porn to be found thankfully. Just as much written for men as women, if not slightly leaning towards being a more man oriented series.
So, my overall is based on my taste and "Hammered" has been a little to close to how real life works. I suspect I will continue the series, but not for a while.
Hearne keeps his characters true to the insights he's shown us. In "Hammered", we get to hear the stories behind Atticus' friends Lief's and Gunnar's hatred of Thor, plus we are introduced to a couple of other legendary characters.
The story is good, laying the foundation by creating character personas that I would like to read more about and culminating in the battle royal. Luke Daniels bring the characters to life too well.
Promise are made that can't be broken and slow spiral for Atticus that began in book 2, Hexed, continues. Just like Atticus, I think I see where this is headed. I am sure Kevin Hearne will cleverly pull this out, though I am not ready to read who we lose as we get there.
I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.
Atticus and a band of mystical beings set off on a mission to take down Thor, The God of Lightning. Thor has been terrorizing innocents for centuries and all of his misdeeds are about to come to an end. While Atticus helps the group travel through realms the avengers all tell their stories of how they were wronged by Thor. A great adventure with both new and returning characters. Atticus knows that upon the completion of this trip he will have to move on out of Arizona, not only because this is the life of a timeless Druid, but he also feels that a dark force is coming. He, his apprentice and his magical dog are off to a new place and a new beginning. I am definitely looking forward to joining them in the next book. This series never disappoints and the narration is so good it is like a character itself.
The first two books in this series were excellent and well worth the credits. Do yourself a favor and stop listening after book two. In this book we listen to Atticus make stupid mistake after stupid mistake. He kills needlessly, shows no remorse, and there is a tenth of the humor and funny antics you find in the first two books. I found myself hoping the book would end hours before it should. It became far too awkward and depressing. I started rooting for the "bad guys", a.k.a the Norse, and actually went out of my way to avoid listening to the book when the occasion arose. I'm truly disappointed in this book and wish this series had gone in a different direction. It had such potential.
it was the same story as the previous books, just with more F bombs. In this one they just go after Thor, but otherwise it is all the same. Nothing special here.
Thor. And Coyote.
stupid. a waste of my time. bleh.
