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
    "A joy to listen to and laugh out loud funny"
    What made the experience of listening to Hammered the most enjoyable?

    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.

    Story
    "Gratiuitous killing of deities, no plot movement."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No.

    This book seemed pointless. It doesn't feel like it belongs in the series. I muddled through it hoping that at some point it would make sense, but it never did.It felt like only 1/4 of the story moved the main characters along in their journeys. The rest was a weird fanastical side trip that I almost expected Atticus to wake up from, home in his bed having dreamt it all. I'm on the fence as to whether I'll get the next (final) book in the series.


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

    Meh.

    "Excellent story with a FABULOUS narrator!"

    Another very solid addition to The Iron Druid chronicles. I'm not sure I liked this one as well as the last two, but still, a very good book. Kevin Hearne is a real linguaphile - the guy loves words. And he's got a great sense of humor. So I always find his writing enjoyable and intellectually stimulating. In this case, Atticus, our favorite Druid, goes on a dangerous quest with some very interesting companions. The set-up took a while, and then we went through a section where the companions were telling each other the stories of why they were participating in this particular adventure. I found all of that to be a bit slow, but ... once the action got going, it went! And don't spare the body count!

    I would be remiss not to comment on the narration by Luke Daniels. This is my third audiobook narrated by him, and he is FABULOUS!! Great voices and accents, very clear, easy to listen to, gets the characters and the story, and just makes the whole thing a wonderful listening experience. I would recommend these books just to listen to him, and you would get a great series in the bargain. :-) I'll be on to Tricked shortly!

    "Hope this continues"
    Would you listen to Hammered again? Why?

    As the third book in the series, you would think you knew most everything but you are again taken on a wonderful journey. Hope the series continues...

    Story
    "THE ONE TO PUT YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT!"

    THIS, the third in the series is the one that put me into such heart racing excitement that I literally could not wait for the fourth book...and I only had a few weeks to it's release! By the time I got here, Atticus and Oberon were part of my permanent library, this story I will listen to over and over. Everyone should have the audible version with this narrator, he's as excellent as the story is! Five stars to the author and the narrator both, you will agree once you listen. Atticus and Oberon have a knack for getting into and out of trouble with ease all the while entertaining us at the same time!
