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.

A number of words were mis-pronounced, To much profanity for my taste. Doesn't any know how to write without swearing?
If you can get past the vulgar language it's a good book.
Always looking for a great Fantasy Series... Please do make suggestions...
Luke you are the man... woman... dog... god... well ummm love your characters. You and Kevin need to start an Oberon Advice Podcast Series...
Love, love, love this series!!!! Great Urban Fantasy... Great Author, Great Narrator, Great Series!!!!
Just as good as the first! The narration is the best! Couldn't imagine the story read by anyone else!
finished 3 today and am exiced to move on to 4. nothing has been lost as I move on to each book. I am loving this serious!
Love the combanations of beleafs and Gods in this book. drinking with Jesus was great!
all of it
This book is structured a bit differently from the first two, in that the fight doesn't come to Atticus, he goes to the fight. I enjoyed this book, and there are some fantastic moments (Jesus and Atticus doing shots in the pub, for instance) but it's not my personal favorite. There's a little more depth and consequence and a little less Oberon that the first two.
That being said, it is still a good lot of fun. I really enjoyed the fourth book in the series, Tricked, and there are things in that book that will make no sense without having read this book. And even though he does leave Arizona for a lot of the book, he still spends like 70% of the book in Tempe with all the regular characters. And of course his time in Tempe is never laid back and care free, so there's plenty of action throughout.
Of all the series, this has been my favorite. The history of the characters that unfolds was wonderful.
Oberon.. I want a hound like him :-)
When the widow was saying goodbye the emotion was clearly portrayed
Entertaining, compelling and fun.
I don't know about moved me, but I love the interaction between him and his pup.
These books are just fun to read, I've enjoyed every one of them and am looking forward to Book 4.
This entire series is one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in quite some time. The approach to the gods of all religions is rather unique and done with great equanimity. The story is entertaining and keeps you listening. I often caught myself laughing out loud while listening to this book. Kudos to Luke Daniels for excellent narration and to Kevin Hearne for being able to get on a roll and never let up.
