First off a big thank you to Kevin Hearne and my great GR friends whom made this book extra kick ass and brought me back into the UF genre I walked away from years ago a genre I’ve missed reading and would have kept missing without taking a chance and picking up this series Unlike Hounded and Hexed Hammered gives the readers a deeper and darker theme the books before it Through out your given glimpses into the long lived Atticus this time around your given a even better insight into his past and those he’s loved and lost before It tears at your heart but makes you all that connected to Atticus Atticus for me is the perfect balance in a character He’s a guy’s guy he doesn’t have all the answers and he makes some small and big mistakes along the way He’s may have lived a long time but in the end he’s very human in everything he feels and does and I love him for it AND OBERON I love that crazy dog In a world where people lie and break promises all the time Atticus is a man of his word and if I wanted anyone at my back and taking care of me it be him There’s a lot of great scenes in this book and stand out for me and some humor that has become the trademark of the IDC still leaves it’s mark with having the reader laughing until their sides hurt Never going to think of the song “It’s a small world” the same again With Atticus promise to Leif and others to finally kill the douchebag Thor Atticus is warned by none other the Jesus over beer fish chips to be sure of his actions as their very far reaching and will be very painful to those he’s come to care for After getting his affairs in orders in Tempe Atticus and co set off to destroy the thunder god We’re given a glimpse into the lives of those whose that Thor has hurt making you not only step back and view the actions and very some huge surprises but truly feel the pain he’s caused Hearne I felt did an great job playing with the whole god theme with the balance issue of hanging on to our humanity or playing as spoiled little children with god powers uestions of what makes us truly human to the choices we tend to make shape our lives and the effects But what would we do if we’re given gifts and long life and losing ourselves our lack of empathy tor not caring and doing damage on a whim These are not only asked but shown through Thor Atticus and Lief Many uestions and What would you have done different stay with the readers long after There is a slight cliffhanger after all is said and done leading to the next book ;; gotta wait till ‘12 though and a great little bonus story which focus on Granuaile whose really coming into her own This is an excellent addition new addiction to this amazing seriesMarry me Atticus holds out a big diamond ringand sword on bended knee “Vampires inspire screams not suees Involuntary urination is common I grant but it properly flows from a sense of terror not an ecstatic sense of hero worship” “It properly flows Are we having a pee pun party” “If I do not aim carefully at my targets I might cause a big splash at the stadium” “Oh very punny You will show them what yellow cowards they are” I said “Right after I flush them out of the crowd” “You will rain down upon their porcelain skin a deluge of justice” “Ugh And I will have to wash my hands afterward”

Running rampant Despite multiple warnings and portents of dire conseuences 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 himse. A little challenging for me than its predecessors Hounded and Hexed Much darker and clearly part of a series; the other two worked well as stand alone books but this one picks up where the last stops and has little in the way of exposition Character building seems a bit uncomfortable; I'm not sure that I really like Atticus very much in this book Officially he is keeping both the letter of his word to the witch Laksha and to the vampire Leif However it means breaking his tenuous social obligations to his apprentice his employees and business and to his friend Mrs MacD and allies This may be the crux of why I've started to become uncomfortable with him as a hero While he keeps his word nominally freuently he does so begrudgingly with dire conseuences to those around him and at the cost of obligations to others That forest we spoke of having an obligation to in Hounded and Hexed Yeah that's right turns out he must not have given it his word view spoiler It becomes especially saddening when he is warned by both Jesus and Morrigan that this vendetta may cause the end of the world as we know it and his death he doesn't see the end of the world or selfishly his life as a reason to change his path Sure ancient druids were war like But I would have thought they would have felt an obligation to the earth and humanity Respecting Atticus became even challenging as he made plans to flee the valley recognizing vampires were moving in to test Leif Bacchus was outside of town and the religious group was coming to town It ended up resolving acceptably but it's a character mix that just doesn't make sense he'll risk everything to keep his word to Leif but then walk away from other fights and obligations Color me confused hide spoiler
