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.
I love the Iron Druid series, but the narration is awful. I won't get any book in this series on Audible. I had to turn it off after one paragraph.
His voices were poorly done and overacted.
I think I listen to these just for the narrator's Oberon voice.
the story is fun too, doesn't feel like it follows a conventional plot, which can be jarring at times, but I enjoyed the book all the way through
The author really outdid himself this time. Snappy dialogue, incredulous villains, and finally an answer to what will happen between Attics and his beautiful apprentice!
"Feels in the moment" reviewer. No long, analytical reviews from this girl.
This story was definitely an improvement over the last few stories. While I did enjoy it, I found much more wrong with it. (Spoilers...kinda).
To start, I was quite disappointed that we didn't get to see any of Granuaile's training. None. And that was the biggest problem with this story. Everything else I found lacking in this novel wouldn't be an issue if we were able to see Granuaile's training. 12 years later and training complete, I find it very unbelievable that she would react the way she did in certain situations, or she would ask questions that should have been asked and answered a decade again. And, seriously? You want me to believe that she and Atticus were able to go 12 years of physical contact/marital arts training without caving to the crazy sexual chemistry?
Another issue I have is Atticus suddenly displaying their traits or quirks that only last for the duration its usefulness and never to show up again. Back in Book 3 while he was in the Norse plane he had Spock and Kirk debates in his head. Very Angel-Devil on the shoulder style. That never showed up. This time he mentally holds conversations with the figment Archdruid mentor in his head. Now, these traits wouldn't be a problem if comments similar to "I do this when I'm bored or stressed" weren't tagged along with those traits. But they never show up again. It's nitpicky, I know, but it really bothered me.
Anyway, I did enjoy this story. I loved Granuaile saving Atticus, although I would still love to see her training. I enjoy the direction Atticus's relationship with Leif is. He should just give in. Stop fighting it. Embrace the vampire. And I look forward to this next few stories. As long as Oberon is around, I'll still be here.
