Publisher's Summary

Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully - he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.

One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona. There’s a vampire turf war brewing, and Russian demon hunters who call themselves the Hammers of God are running rampant. Despite multiple warnings and portents of dire consequences, Atticus and Leif journey to the Norse plane of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself.

    Story
    "Gets off to a very slow start"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There's so much exposition and so little interaction between characters. Not up to his usual standards, and I almost decided not to finish it.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kevin Hearne before, how does this one compare?

    Not as good


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He does a great job. Great voice, and he doesn't sound like the usual baritone voice-over guy.


    Do you think Hammered needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if he gets back to a better mix of FUN vs lectures...

    "Great Series"
    Where does Hammered rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am hooked on the Iron Druid series. The narrator is very expressive and the storyline just pulls you along.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the author's irreverent sense of humor.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only the ones in this series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed a lot.

    Story
    "Really, about 3 1/2 stars"

    In a previous review I mentioned that I felt that each subsequent book got a little bit worse (or perhaps I should say not quite as good as the preceding book). I still stick to that. And after having read the 4th one, it continues true to form.
    The story is enjoyable, but not much to it. Luke Daniels does a fine job of narrating and Kevin Hearne brings a lot of life and humor to the characters.
    As the other books in the series, if you're looking for an entertaining book with a good, but not too deep story, check this one out. If you're looking for a great literary work ,you might want to look elsewhere.

    "fun series!"
    If you could sum up Hammered in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting series!


    What other book might you compare Hammered to and why?

    Dresdin files, Him Butcher. Lead characters are similar. Both work with magic and fight evil!


    What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice puts life into the characters. Especially like how he narrates the Irish wolfhound.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, just enjoyed the story.

    "Excellent and well worth it"

    I've become a huge fan of Kevin Hearne and Luke Daniels thanks to the Iron Druid Chronicles. I hate it when one book ends because I can't wait to get to the next one... I would love to see the series become films, but I fear they wouldn't do the books justice. Fantastic characters, great writing, excellent performance. GET IT!!!

    Story
    "Not quite as good as the first two, seems rushed"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have liked the author to spend more time developing the plot. The book contains a whole lot of back story, which is likeable, but there just wasn't enough action. There hasn't been any twists, turns, or surprises, which is disappointing. The first two books did a better job of incorporating action and suspense. It seems like the author rushed this one a bit.


    Would you recommend Hammered to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend Hammered because it is one part of the series, which as a whole has been very enjoyable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The chase scene with Bakas.


    Was Hammered worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The widow McDunna is still by far one of the most genuine and fun characters.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, the story is gripping and the narrator is excellent.


    What other book might you compare Hammered to and why?

    It reminds me of role playing fantasy.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    The narrator changed his voice for different characters. I looked up other books that he narrated and enjoyed them also.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were several times that the story swelled towards humor or excited danger.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is excellent. My son came visiting and I introduced him to the first book and he raced through the series in days.
