With all the five dollar words, multiple story lines, the vast amount of information on pantheons and even a meeting with Jesus to get boozed up and eat fish and chips and the constant and extensive violence- a person would assume that Kevin Hearne is writing these books for late teens and adults. Yet, after 4.5 books, and patiently waiting for when he and his apprentice finally get intimate- it was like reading someone that was 8 years old. It was a non-event. At the very least he could have described how he felt when he kissed her after waiting 12 years. Kevin spent more time describing baseball than what was supposed to be the culmination of his feelings for Gronuaile. Not the way a 2000 year old Druid would approach sex or love. I felt that this book was thin on plot, and the violence is just getting 'same old-same old'. I agree with others that this series is very similar in nature and pace to the Dresden series, but Jim Butcher has done a better job of character development and writes more comfortably and creatively about emotion. Not sure if I will continue with this series.
Luke Daniels did a wonderful job of reading this book and portraying the characters well.
