This book seemed pointless. It doesn't feel like it belongs in the series. I muddled through it hoping that at some point it would make sense, but it never did.It felt like only 1/4 of the story moved the main characters along in their journeys. The rest was a weird fanastical side trip that I almost expected Atticus to wake up from, home in his bed having dreamt it all. I'm on the fence as to whether I'll get the next (final) book in the series.
This writer is totally funny, the humor in his books is nothing short of healing with laughter. The narrorator is OUTSTANDING. we can't wait for the rest of his books and will be looking for more by this author.
Another very solid addition to The Iron Druid chronicles. I'm not sure I liked this one as well as the last two, but still, a very good book. Kevin Hearne is a real linguaphile - the guy loves words. And he's got a great sense of humor. So I always find his writing enjoyable and intellectually stimulating. In this case, Atticus, our favorite Druid, goes on a dangerous quest with some very interesting companions. The set-up took a while, and then we went through a section where the companions were telling each other the stories of why they were participating in this particular adventure. I found all of that to be a bit slow, but ... once the action got going, it went! And don't spare the body count!
I would be remiss not to comment on the narration by Luke Daniels. This is my third audiobook narrated by him, and he is FABULOUS!! Great voices and accents, very clear, easy to listen to, gets the characters and the story, and just makes the whole thing a wonderful listening experience. I would recommend these books just to listen to him, and you would get a great series in the bargain. :-) I'll be on to Tricked shortly!
As the third book in the series, you would think you knew most everything but you are again taken on a wonderful journey. Hope the series continues...
THIS, the third in the series is the one that put me into such heart racing excitement that I literally could not wait for the fourth book...and I only had a few weeks to it's release! By the time I got here, Atticus and Oberon were part of my permanent library, this story I will listen to over and over. Everyone should have the audible version with this narrator, he's as excellent as the story is! Five stars to the author and the narrator both, you will agree once you listen. Atticus and Oberon have a knack for getting into and out of trouble with ease all the while entertaining us at the same time!
Maybe in a few years
Style and swagger
Sure If I had the time. Never really slow in pace
I really love this book and have listened to the whole series already.. I love the narrator he does a awesome job with the voices and every character.. I cant wait for the next book in this series.. Yeah! Kevin Hearne
The relationship between Oberon and The Druid.. it's awesome and funny!
Yes... i did! Couldnt help it.
Awsome awsome awsome
There r none for the characters r portrayed unlike any other story I've entertained extremely entertaining great story telling an again Luke Daniels perfomance is unchallenged
His personalized characters he gives each character their own personality bringing each one to life an he improvs each emotion with with true reverence
Lime all the rest this story kept me on the edge of my seat and is comical at times though in this story I really despised Thor
Great storry Amazing Proformance
At times the main character can get a bit cheeky, but this worked well with the story and I did not feel the author was making fun of me or the story. I would have to say the author has to be a complete died in the wool nerd. Just to many references and alliterations to be otherwise. I recommend this entire series.
If you like fantasy this is the series for you. I like to read history and mythology - everything matches up. Great listen.
