Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.

Yes!!!! Likable characters, epic battles, great dog, very funny! Best narration!!!
Seriously everything! Norse gods, Coyote, the battles, the dog Oberon.
Oberon makes me laugh so much. The best dog and comic relief ever!
Laugh and enjoy the epic battles, then wish the author would release the next book sooner!!
If you like epic battles, great humor and a strong main character, then stop right now and buy this book!
I really like how he cannot use magic to solve every problem. He has to think. Also like the interplay between the Atticus and Oberon
Great storry Amazing Proformance
At times the main character can get a bit cheeky, but this worked well with the story and I did not feel the author was making fun of me or the story. I would have to say the author has to be a complete died in the wool nerd. Just to many references and alliterations to be otherwise. I recommend this entire series.
Take the global warming preaching in your face crap out.
I liked the books a lot and they did have an extraordinary story line however there was way to much preachiness in them. I felt like someone was there making sure that it had global warming as the underlying story to the story. The reason I listen and read books is to escape reality and enjoy a good story not listen to a different story attached to a political view of the current world. This is just my opinion so do not take this as an insult that is to how it is meant.
This series is a great read becuase it continues to surprise me and at the same time there is good humor throughout. While riding my motorcycle, I started laughing out loud at one point.
Among the top.
Atticus, his reactions to the world around him is just HIlerious thoughts and actions.
He does the voices in such a realistic manner I forget its audio and can simply slip into my imagination and picture everything in my head.
Laugh, curse, rant, lol you name it.
Read the book, your life will be just a bit brighter for just having the story in your head. :)
I have read and listened to all of the Iron Druid series books. This book is the weakest. Quite frankly, I had a difficult time getting to the end. The culture references are getting old, and his eco-preaching is tiresome. Oberon's input is getting harder to like.
Luke Daniels is an excellent narrator. However, he has changed his rendering of Oberon in this book, so Oberon sounds more like Scooby Doo. Not a good change.
I got really, really tired of the interaction between Atticus and Oberon.
I hope the next book is better - I will be checking it out of the library, though - just in case.
Yes, I love listening to Luke Daniels.
I like the interaction between Atticus and Coyote.
I loved it when Oberon asked Atticus to introduce him as Snuggle Pumkin, so he could conduct his experiment.
I laughed several times. Mostly when Oberon is involved. I found myself holding my breath when Atticus had his throat ripped out and almost died.
I recommend the Iron Druid Chronicles to everyone! I am hooked.
I love SciFy and Fantasy Novels History is my second love especially the Dark ages through the Renaissance and The American Civil War
This is another very well performed installment of the Druid Chronicles.
Filled with enough wit and wisdom to make all fans laugh and go hmmmm.
I only wish they would come out faster. I simply cant get enough of AttIicus!
