Publisher's Summary

Featuring A Prelude to War, an Iron Druid novella

A Prelude to War by Kevin Hearne: After an old friend is murdered in retaliation for his mercenary strikes against the oldest vampires in the world, Atticus O'Sullivan must solicit the aid of another old friend in Ethiopia if he's going to have a chance of finishing a war he never wanted. Meanwhile Granuaile MacTiernan starts a private war of her own against Loki, the lord of lies, and if it brings Ragnarok early - so be it.

Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys by Delilah S. Dawson: The number-one rule of the circus? Don't kill your volunteers, even accidentally. That's how young magician Criminy Stain ends up on the run in a forest, where he meets a beautiful woman holding a bucket of blood. But is Merissa the answer to his prayers - or the orchestrator of his ruin?

Interlude: Swallow by Chuck Wendig: Miriam Black is back. Miriam is tired of her curse and finally believes she knows how to be rid of her ability to see when and how other people die. She follows a lead to the mountains of Colorado, where she believes she sees signs of a serial killer she thought she already killed. (Set between The Cormorant and Thunderbird.)

    "Third slice stale"

    two great stories drawn down the third, The last is badly written piece of garbage, even the narrator could not save it. Bought for the Iron Druid story. Enjoyed the second slice, will check out the Author and narrator, pulled me in.
    As Meatloaf says Two out of three an't bad.

    Story
    "Two and a half slices"

    The Iron Druid story is as strong as ever and builds up anticipation nicely for the next full instalment. I do prefer the narration of Christopher Ragland, although Luke Daniels does a decent enough job (I greatly prefer Ragland's Oberon - admittedly its closer to the Scooby Doo end of the doggy spectrum, but I find Daniel's version has too much snivelling Igor to it).

    The second story is great too - Dawson has created a really interesting world and one I would happily buy more books to experience.

    The third story is the weakest and did not hold my attention in the same way as the other two. The characters did not appeal and the plot lacked coherence.

    Overall, worth it for the first two slices.

    "Iron Druid for me."

    "Kevin's bits great, others, not for me."

    the iron druid novella was fine, but the other two shorts, well for me, they weren't short enough. Didn't enjoy the story, or the narrator. wouldn't recommend to anyone.

    Story
    "Pretty good, but with reservations"

    This is a compilation of 3 stories. Here is my breakdown..

    The first story is from the Iron Druid series. If you haven't read the Series do not start with this as you will have no idea what is going on. This story is very good as I would expect from Kevin Hearne but with one major issue. The problem is that this is not really a novella as advertised. It is more like the first few chapters of the next novel. It's still really good but not a complete story by a longshot.

    It takes off from the end of the last book and stops abruptly with no closure whatsoever. Unlike Two Ravens and One crow which had a distinct beginning, middle and end this is just a beginning and middle with a brief pause and no closure. That is very frustrating since you really wind up wanting to know what happens next. It is still worth the credit, though.

    Good news is Luke Daniels did the narration so the voices are the same we are used to hearing. The last novella (in Carnie punk .. don't bother with) had a different person reading and it messed the whole thing up for me. Also, the author's Granuiale POV is much better than in previous books. I think he is starting to figure out how to write from her point of view. Other than that it is great to hear from Kevin Hearne. I hope he doesn't spend too much time writing Star Wars books and stays with this series.

    The second was about a character named Criminy Stain. It seems to be from an ongoing series as well. The story was good and while quite a different world had a writing style that is very reminiscent of Anne Rice. The only real drawback was that if you haven't read the series this is based on there is a lot unexplained. Still I could follow it and it kept my interest. The main character is a bit of a douche which made it less enjoyable but still not too bad. The narrator did a good job and definitely added to the quality of the story.

    The third story by Chuck Wendig really did not capture my interest. The narrator did a decent job but the story didn't pull me in me at all. I am glad I heard this story as I almost bought a book in this series a few weeks ago. Hearing this one saved me from wasting a credit.

    So, 2 out of 3 stories were good. That's better than what most anthologies manage and if you are an Iron Druid fan you will want this one just to get a head start on the next book. The 3rd story combined with the lack of a strong finish to the Iron Druid story lead to the lower scores for story. All 3 had good narration in my opinion. If you follow any of these series this is worth a credit. If you are new to all 3 I'd pass as you will just be confused.

    Story
    "2 Out of 3 the Redux"

    Like most reviewers, I found the first 2 stories to be enjoyable, but could not maintain interest in the third story for very long. The problem isn't the writing, it's more that the third story doesn't seem to fit with the other two in terms of ethos. It could be argued that the Kevin Hearne and Delilah Dawson stories are also very different in character, but somehow the feel is the same. All the stories are good, I think. If the last story had been a part of a different grouping, it might have been easier to connect. I just haven't made myself go back to listen to the third to verify if my hypothesis is true. Anyway, love both Kevin Hearne and Luke Daniels (and Oberon, of course).

    "Nice nibble"

    Excellent nibble of cheesy bits. Haven't heard of the other two others, I was here for the iron Druid and Oberon! Found out I may like a full wheel of Dawson and or Wendig. Great listen, great narrators!

    "Good stories"

    I bought this for the kevin's book. I enjoyed it. I didn't know the other two, I ended up really enjoying Delilah's short story. But just could not get into Chuck's book. I am not saying its bad I just don't know the character and it didn't draw me in.

    "Great Druid; Interesting #2 story; #3 not for me"
    Any additional comments?

    Bought the book for the Iron Druid. I enjoyed it and hope it is a "prequel" to the next full book as it left questions to be resolved. The 2nd story was a new author to me; I liked it and looked for other works. The last story was not to my taste, hence the 4 star rating.

    REVIEW:
    I listened to this one on audio and loved every minute of two out of three of these stories.
    A Prelude to War: Read by Luke Daniels
    As always the combination of Kevin’s words and Luke’s voice takes me right into the IDC world. Love love love hanging with Atticus. Love Oberon (and yes Oberon I know you did it!!!). And of Granuaile is on her own journey at the present time. But I love that A Prelude to War sets up for the next book in the IDC. I for one can not wait.
    Off to Toronto we go......

    Not My Circle, Not my Monkeys: Read by Alex Wyndham
    This was my first read of Delilah S Dawson and my first listen to Alex Wyndham. The combination of these two make for an awesome story that I didn’t want to end. I loved Criminy Stain I can’t wait to read more of Mr. Stain.

    Interlude; Swallow: Read by Julia Whelan
    Interlude: Swallow I just could not get into. I am not sure if it was the writing, the narrator or the point of view. But it just didn’t grab me.

    "Loved the Druid; couldn't stand the others"

    I know the iron Druid series is quirky and eclectic and that's why love it... But the other two stories in this series of short books were unnecessarily dark, lacking any of the humor of the Druid series... and I wonder why they were bundled together. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and couldn't stand the other two

    Interesting choice of threads in these stories. I was invested in Iron Druid storyline already, but struggled a bit on the others. Ultimately enjoyed them all.

    "THREE YUMMY SLICES"

    Three novellas, three authors, three narrators. Kevin Hearne's story is a continution of the Iron Druid saga, taking place immediately after the last full-length book in the series, so for those of us who needed a "fix," it was just delightful. The other two novellas are equally good. Each different, both rather creepy. If you like creepy, these are right on the border between fantasy and horror, especially the third which I think is rather over the line and IS horror.

    All three are excellently narrated, crisply written, smart, sophisticated and fun. I highly recommend the book. It was a real pleasure!
