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.

    "The Iron Druid rocks on!"

    This is a great series. Funny, exciting, different, well read. My only complaint with this particular book is that Oberon, the Irish Wolfhound, is not there much and I LOVE him! New book in this series coming out soon-- can't wait!

    I am an electrical engineer and have served a stint in the Navy. I own a company that installs custom home theater systems and other home entertainment products. My favorite books tend to be action fiction or fantasy. I like some romance but not too mushy

    "Fantastic Book Series"
    Would you listen to Hammered again? Why?

    Probably Not, but I am not one to listen to any book again. However, there are parts of this book that I have played for others because I thought they were so good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that it was told from a more manly perspective. Many of the werewolfe/vampire books of late have been mushy romance books or written for teens.


    Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favorite?

    My favorite character is Oberon and I would read these books if nothing more than to listen to his quick wit and personality. Luke Daniels did a great job with all the characters, but especially Oberon. I was simply amazed by his performance and I have recommended this series to my son. However, he will read the books instead of listening, so, I'm not sure that he will enjoy as much without Luke bringing the characters to life.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next release and I hope that the Audio performance will have Luke Daniels again.

    Story
    "Superb light urban fantasy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was an amazing story line with a witty main character, and terrific supporting characters. There are many such series with female mains, but few male, and this one hits it right on. Unlike some urban fantasy which tend to tote magic and end up with straight combat and only a one or two magical displays this is rife with combat and magic throughout.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The hound of the main character delivers some of the best one liners in this book, making the supporting characters just as engaging as the main.


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

    The narrator puts just the emphasis and gives perfect sub tones to match the sarcastic flare of the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    Though the third in the series leaves a little hanging, the first and second books both end the plot line making the reader still interested in the characters and their future but not leaving you with the incomplete emptiness that some series books do.

    Story
    "Amazingly Written & Brilliantly Read"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hammered to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print, but the narration is half of what made this book so great. I couldn't imagine the print being better.I couldn't even imagine another narrator being better, Luke Daniels makes these books come alive in a fun and creative way.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Besides the story being so good in itself, Kevin Hearne took a look at god, mythology, religion and the supernatural from what I consider to be a imaginative new perspective. I loved what he did with the historical mythology. And of course the relationship between Atticus and Oberon.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    He brought so much energy to the book. He made the story his to tell. I loved the laughter, it seemed to real, especially when he was talking to Oberon. He really brought a mood setting while narrating. (If that makes sense). This are one of the best series I've ever listened to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The tag line would be- STAY HOME AND LISTEN TO THE AUDIOBOOK- I hate books made into movies.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly reccommend this series.

    "Love Oberon!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A very clever book with great characters. Full of humor, including a few groan worthy puns. An entertaining read that might just give you some enlightenment in unexpected ways. One of my favorite characters is the wolf hound, Oberon. You will just have to listen to a book (he is in all of them) to appreciate him. All the characters are interesting and continue to develop through the series.

    "Great Listen"
    Would you listen to Hammered again? Why?

    I would definately listen to another book by this author. I thought it was very inventive .


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is the first one


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

    I loved the references to hospitatlity even to people that were trying to kill you.

    Would you listen to Hammered again? Why?

    Yes, I would read the whole series again and again. The story is so exciting and fun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's hard to choose. I love Oberon, but it's hard not to love him. I really like the main character. His personality and his magical abilities are well developed. The mythology in the book is great.


    Any additional comments?

    I can hardly wait for the next book in the series!
