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.

YES!! nice to be able to close your eyes and be brought into the story completly!
The morgan! she brings a great level of mortality to the series.
Luke Daniels always in thrawles the listner from start to finish. never becoming board of the stoy he is reading!
It smells like sausages!!!
As far as fantasy, this is probably one of the best series I've read. Very entertaining and very fun to listen to. Light and breezy, hilarious and full of adventure.
I read a lot of comments saying the book was too long or that people were bored, but I have to say I was thoroughly entertained from the beginning to end. I could see at one point with each chapter describing characters motives some people would get a bit itchy but it was still fun to listen to.
Mr Daniels is an AMAZING voice actor. Just amazing with his accents and his pronunciations. His pacing is good and he treats the material with enthusiasm. He's just awesome.
I am really enjoying this series. This particular book was more plot driving than the first two but it was a light, fun listen. I really enjoyed it.
Intense, funny, action-packed.
Love listening to this series with my 9 & 11 year old sons!
This book, indeed, this entire series, is one of those rare finds. Each book in this series gets better and Hammered is #3 and quite a fun time. If you like urban fantasy, you might have just found a new favorite!
Hammered could rightly be compared to the Dresden books of Jim Butcher. Witty, smart and easy-going, this book was a pleasure.
No doubt...he was a minor character, but I loved Ratatosk. Luke Daniels performance of him had me laughing out loud.
Thor pursued by Icelandic Vampire! Join Leif and his company of gods, werewolves and wizards as he assaults Asgard to meet the pantheon of Norse mythology!
Great fun! Buy this book...heck...buy the whole series.
The iron druid series is great. It is funny, witty, and overwhelmingly entertaining. I have never mixed witches, warewolves, vampires and with this a druid in such a comical format. The reader is excellent, with many different voices for each character, making them seem so life like.
This is a verry good listen. Kepted me enthrolled the entire time. I highly recommend it to everyone.
Yes, it's a very fun, action packed, hilarious ride. Hearne is very talented.
I enjoyed this book very much. Pure entertainment. Lovable main character with the best sidekick in the world, a dog that talks.
This book took us into a realm of god killing which required us to accept the far-fetched nature of Atticus regularly interacting with god-like beings from other planes of existence. Even more so than his interaction with the fae. We liked this the least.
We finally get to enjoy some background stories from the secondary characters. This was cool.
This book's story was not as engrossing as the previous books, but the endearing characters kept us moving along to the end.
He did a fine job as Atticus as usual, but we really enjoyed his Russian Storm God impersonation. He makes ya wanna grab a cold vodka and kick back for another chapter!
