I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
Entertaining, Captivating and the Narrator Kept your attention glued. The whole series was fun and a great listen.
The dog Oberon.
Yes the previous two books in this series. I haven't heard a better Narrated book within my experience with Audible. Of course most of the books I like to get are educational and thus probably a little harder to read without any real characters to dramatize. But the Narrator does make or break the book for me and I have learned my lesson several times over, READ the REVIEWS on EVERY BOOK you want to buy and take heed when you see multiple people talking about their disappointments of the Narrator. I wish you could get your money back on them, some of which were so bad I couldn't make it through the first couple chapters. This book saved my continued membership with Audible at least for now. Awesome book.
The Thunder God.
I always look for a tidbit of truth within these books, because I know the truths of old are now hidden within stories like these. Although I found no real truths in this book, it was very entertaining. I am writing a book about a Druid Hero, It will be two books in one really. The first part is the story created for your entertainment, and the back of the book will be sectioned off training. As the story progresses, the druid goes off to be trained and returns, if the reader Chooses to evolve with the Druid, the reader can go to the back and read the section associated to that part of the hero's training. My book is nothing like this but it is my hopes that the story will be as amazingly entertaining as this series.
Travel a lot for work and spend a good deal of time in the car.
Best series! HBO please read this and make it. Something great for in between Trublood and Game of Thrones.
See my review for Book 1
Remind me again, where did I leave my ipod?
I am so glad I took a chance on this series. I haven't laughed this much or enjoyed a book so much in a long time. Hearne has created a main character that charms his way into your consciousness and takes up residence there. I find myself quoting dialogue to people who haven't read it yet, and I hate spoilers! The weather has been nasty for weeks, but when I go into the Iron Druid books, I feel as if I've been on vacation to worlds both strange and familiar and very, very exciting as well. Hammered was the best of the three, but I give them all 5 stars for just existing. I love Atticus, Oberon, and all the other wonderful characters that live within the mind of Kevin Hearne. I look forward to many years of hero worship. Highly, very highly recommended.
Also, Luke Daniels deserves a big thank you for his amazing performance -- He IS Atticus, Oberon and the gang. I don't believe I would have loved the books as much with another reader.
YES YES YES.,.,.such a nice change for my Paranormal World of reading and listening
The mix of all the magic's and haven't read much about Druid Priest...His character and relationship with his wolf hound is really - gosh don't know the word without sounded too corny..it is a very mature book (intelligent - but fun too)
Loved them all
Not good with this...
Non, but just listen and you'll fall in love with the story too
Tell us about yourself!
As a bona fide Norwegian I was very excited to hear that the next book in a series I???ve come to enjoy would feature elements from Norse mythology. Mythology and stories I???ve hear since I was a little kid, stories I???ve come to love almost as much our old folktales of many-headed mountain trolls.
And I must admit, despite the strange American pronunciations I was suitably impressed with how Hearne melds our mythology with his universe. Maybe it???s not a huge endorsement when I say that he did in fact not butcher my cultural inheritance, but that???s honestly the impression I was left with.
Now for the book itself, I was not a huge fan. It was worth the credit, but I think the author should be thankful that this is not the first book in his series. I???ll leave it at that.
This is a solid story. Just because I didn't like what happened in it doesn't mean it's bad but I really didn't like what happened.
The narrator did a wonderful job of character voices and his cadence and speaking speed are both spot on.
It is hard to point out the flaws in this series because of its highly entertaining nature. The jokes are integrated seamlessly within the narration and the story, while mildly predictable in the outcome, is delivered in such a light way that one can easily relax and enjoy it.
The reader must also be applauded for his performance. The inflections and tone of voice give the character the same level of awesomeness as Han Solo, or Indiana Jones.
If one is looking for a nice pleasant book series to listen to on a long drive, there is nothing better than the Iron Druid.
Simply too much fun despite the suspense and mayhem.
Totally upended view of Thor.
Can't go there.
Too tough to pick only one.
The Iron Druid series is delightfully perverse. The performance reader is well suited to the material and the ear. Cussler and Harry Dresden fans ought to scurry over and get in with this series!
