Publisher's Summary

The acclaimed author Kevin Hearne returns with a brand-new novel in his epic urban fantasy series starring the unforgettable Atticus O'Sullivan.

For nearly 2,000 years, there was only one Druid left walking the Earth - Atticus O'Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword kept him alive while pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he's got company.

Atticus' apprentice, Granuaile, is finally a full Druid herself. What's more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern name Owen Kennedy.

And Owen has some catching up to do.

Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus' chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury's still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki - or merely a pain in the arse.

As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they're hoping that this time three's a charm.

FINALLY MADE IT!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A chronicle of the druid, centered on the druid, not on the female druid, which every appearance was cheesy, boring, and tiresome. I fast forwarded a lot....

What do you think your next listen will be?

I do not know, but not from Kevin Hearne

Have you listened to any of Christopher Ragland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

As a narrator, he is pretty good, but the story is not

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shattered?

I would not have published this book at all!
It has became a soap opera.

Any additional comments?

He finally did it, I'm out of here! no more druids, and no more Kevin Hearne.

Great story

Great story, and Ragland is always a pleasure to listen to. Real voice actors who actually put effort and emotion into their work make such a difference.

It is Atticus' story - not Granuaile's

Really enjoyed the book, and the four stars are credited to the story of Atticus, Owen and Oberon. They are truly fun characters. It feels like Kevin Hearne has some real life characters he can look at when writing their stories. They are truly funny, and I like the addition of Atticus' arch druid. Owen Kennedy is brilliant in his simple approach to everything. Oberon is as always funny with his sausages, and his self proclaimed poodle addiction really made me laugh hard. They are worth listening to.

That is not the case with Granuaile.

Granuaile is boring. I do not get why she is there, and the story about her father quickly becomes a little annoying. The way her story is tied back into Atticus' story does not really give anything. She is a character that is needed for giving the reader background information.

The real action comes with the three males of the story.

Christopher Ragland is really really good as narrator. He can do all the voices excellent. Unfortunately there are a bit too many "lead" characters - three persons and two dogs.

So next time more Atticus, Oberon and Owen. Less Granuaile and her dog.

too many voices...

I love the Iron Druid series but in this one where u have the story told by 3 different characters (plus 2 dogs) I find it not quite so enjoyable as the previous books. Please could we go back to one or two different voices. That having been said it is still great fun and Oberon is as adorable as ever. Although u get a resume of the story so far - I would not start here but with book 1 - otherwise the significance of poodles will be a little lost :)

Too many Voices

Would you ever listen to anything by Kevin Hearne again?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Would be better if there was less of Granuaile talking in this book. Found her distracting, and her dog talking was getting to me. Atticus and his dog Oberon are the characters that made me buy all the other books.
I hope the next book goes back to just the two of them.

confusing story line

with three POVs and characters running in separate directions all over the world, the story is confusing and less engaging than the other books in the Series. at least I found the audiobook with the same narrator as the other books, the first I picked up was read by some other dude who got the voices all wrong and didn't pronounce the names properly..

Great experience

If you could sum up Shattered in three words, what would they be?

Great, well listened, Well read

Who was your favorite character and why?

@ArchdruidOwen is just great and the way he was read and pronounced was just awesome

What does Christopher Ragland bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He does great voiceover which I enjoyed all the time, his voice change for each main character was errorless. (Only Oberon being annoying as hell)

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, no way as it is over 10 hours...

Oh no Atticus, what's next?

Kevin Hearne is so gifted at blending with his pen fantasy into believable rich characters. While Christopher Raglund breathes life into every single character with his voice. I cannot help but laugh at Oberon and the addition or Orla is priceless.

Loving it

The story is getting better and better and the narrator is even pronouncing the Irish words in a less cringe worthy fashion, I could still do the whole thing without the talking dog but eight books in I'm blocking it out ! It s highly entertaining nonetheless .

Another great adventure.

Another great adventure with Atticus and Granuialle and their hounds. The addition of Owen was fantastic too. 5 stars!
