This series is most excellent! This particular book may not stand alone. References to past events seem to be more about memory triggers for series readers than filling in the new reader.
Each bin is lively, interesting, action-packed and worth the time!
Hearne creates an interesting world and magic system. His characters are interesting with (mostly) slow and steady character development
Daniels performance is excellent with great voices for each character.
Kevin Hearne has great ideas. he executes them fairly well. but he slips some details and parts that would really flesh it out into a great story. his books need to be longer in order to fully get enjoyment out of all his ideas. I almost feel robbed of the rest of a great story.
Book Addict and a Fantasy Fanatic!
So in this installment of the Iron Druid series Atticus is has finished training his apprentice and is ready to bind her to the earth. Unfortunately, there are those who do not wish for another Druid to exist. On top of that, Atticus has made more enemies than friends in the last 13 years and they seem to eager to see him dead.
To my utter disappointment the love connection between Atticus and his apprentice is at its peak. I was hoping the author would do something different. It was too obvious from the moment she was introduced. Plus I don't like her and that should count for something ( LOL ) Atticus is special and one of a kind. He should have been paired with one of the Goddess... my hope was the Morrigan. And boy did I get some jaw Dropping news with that story line. It was the best revelation IN THIS WHOLE SERIES!
This book is packed with action. The author goes back to his writing style in HAMMERED and does alot of storytelling. It isn't bad but to me it didn't add ant real value. He could have had the characters summertime what happened but instead we get small short stories. Again they are bad, just seemed to be fillers.
Luke Daniels does an excellent job and has taken the spot of Top Male Narrator in my eyes.
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry.
Some sense of humour added into a rollicking good ride. They remind me of the Dresden Files. These books won't stretch your grey matter but they are fun.
Love this series . & the narrator does a fantastic job - I esp. love his "Oberon " voice - adds extra levels of humor . Highly recommend the whole series .
The actual book, yes. Not the audio books.
So tired of the dog. Too bad the lightening bolt didn't kill it. This one is way better than the last filler book (#4) - complete Native American cultural appropriation.
I realized if I were reading the books I wouldn't hear that annoying voice for Oberon. Whoever said that was a good choice for Oberon was wrong. Too bad I can't pick up the books now without hearing it.
Not if the annoying dog was in it.
It's a really good story and quick paced - not borring at all. Just wish that dog weren't part of it or it had a different voice. If my dog could talk, he would be cool and wise - not like Obe. Despite the performance I'll try one more book.
Love the narrator in the first 4-not in this one-he is just downright annoying and full of bravado. His personality change 180 degrees for no good reason.
