It's good - don't get me wrong. I love what Kevin Hearne is doing and I think Luke Daniels is a great narrator. But this book is more about establishing the backdrop for what is presumably coming next.
I rather liked the campfire story sequence. I know others have pushed against it, but I like that story within a story mechanic.
He's just a perfect voice for Atticus. He captures his mood and feeling with the nuances of his voice.
Someone's Coming For You Thor, And This Time It Isn't Loki
This book does represent a change in tone. The first two books were more or less lighthearted in their story telling. This one starts to get a little darker and moodier. Motives aren't clear cut, Atticus isn't always a good guy, or at least not always a correct guy. The story here seems destined to be the backdrop for the remaining books in the series. As such, it's perhaps a little long on exposition, but I don't really mind that. Much like the Dresden Files fourth book, this book seems to mark a transition from what was a couple of stand alone stories to a longer form story arc. I think the lighter tone of the first two books may be lost, but I think the richer story more than makes up for it.
