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.

“Kevin Hearne breathes new life into old myths, creating a world both eerily familiar and startlingly original.”(Nicole Peeler, author of Tempest Rising)
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!
Best series I have listened to in quite a while. Excellent reader. Wasnt sure i would like it... was a pleasant surprise.
The first quarter of the book was heavy on the Celtic mythology it made the flow of the story bog down.
I have the whole series that Audible has available,and I am waiting for the next book to be added to Audible library
The war scene when Atticus helped his friends get justice but they died after accomplishing their goal.
yes as long as the first part of th book was left out
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
some series i lose interest in but the iron druid series just keeps coming at you making you crave more its a must buy
Highly recomened, this book is a brillant squel i would urge to buy the other books of this chronicles.
A story full of bad ass characters what more do you need, I recommend you pick the Luke Daniels versions (narration)
