Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Turned up a notch"


    Story – 4.5/5

    As with Dresden, this series just got turned up a notch, and at the same point as well – book 3. There is not quite as much humour in this one (although still plenty), as it is replaced by a larger, more grand, over-arching storyline, which finishes off with an awesome battle at the end amongst gods and immortals. The episodic comedy-action formula only works for so long, and Kevin Hearne has made a good move here in my opinion.

    I think Hearne also did a great job of making Atticus a bit more vulnerable in this one. First person narration can sometimes make us readers/listeners not worry about the protagonist, but that wasn’t the case in this book. There are also plenty of sentimental scenes during the final battle amongst Atticus's allies.

    Can’t wait to get into book 4.


    Performance – 4/5

    Christopher Ragland overall did a very good job. He suits the story’s style and humour of Atticus very well. I have never been sure about his voice for Oberon, who is the funniest character in the story, but it’s not bad enough to detract from my enjoyment.


    Overall – 4.5/5

    "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"
    Where does Hammered rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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!


    What other book might you compare Hammered to, and why?

    Lord of the Rings meets World of Warcraft!


    What about Christopher Ragland’s performance did you like?

    Excellent a brilliant performance, all the voices are wonderful and animated.

    "Good book, not great performance"

    Do make sure you get the versions performed by Luke Daniels who does excellent character differentiation and sounds like he loves each character. Mr. Christopher Ragland makes female characters sound brainless and Oberon the dog sound witless instead of awesome.

    This series of books is excellent and I am currently binge listening them one by one. Will make sure to get the ones performed by Luke Daniels though.

    "Great Book"
    If you could sum up Hammered in three words, what would they be?

    Cute
    Complex
    Enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    Oberon.


    What about Christopher Ragland’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    No, I normally limit to hour stints. Although I suppose if you had good stamina, one sitting might be possible.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
