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 plain 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.
This is book three of the Iron Druid Chronicles series. If you would like to hear more, you will find the first chapter of book four at the end of this recording.

It goes without saying the best part of Christophers performance is Oberon. If you haven't read any of the books you won't understand but you can feel this character as he reads it.
No, I normally limit to hour stints. Although I suppose if you had good stamina, one sitting might be possible.
This book has a lot of monologging. While it read well in paperback, in audio it seems to drag on. This is really my only negative on the story.
I love Iron Druid. they are Funny, cool, and the 3 Book hold the styles
"Great series getting a little lost with this book"
What the hell was going on with this book. The first two were extremely enjoyable, with a lot of humour and action and following a little formula.
This book seemed very disjointed, from the very first chapter.
OK, we know from the last book that Atticus has promised to get some enchanted fruit. So the story starts there. No introduction, just the start of the theft. Once that was done i thought we would get back to the main thrust of the story - which we did - but it was not the story i was expecting.
Atticus leads a group to Asgard to slay try to slay Thor. We have gone from a light hearted series to a fairly serious story about the group ready to kill. We have stories about their past, and big serious fights were a lot of entities (people, supernatural, gods etc) are killed.
This book lacked the satisfaction i got from the first two. Hopefully the next book will be better and back to formula with the right amount of geeky humour back.
"Best group of books since Game of Thrones"
At least in the top 10! But, bear in mind I've listened to all of Game of Thrones, all of which are amazing! This is the best group of books since them!! Its taken ages to find a good set of books to get addicted to since GOT and these are brilliant!
Lord of the Rings meets World of Warcraft!
Excellent a brilliant performance, all the voices are wonderful and animated.
