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.

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 <br/>Complex<br/>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.

Easy-on-the-ear fantasy

I'm training for an ultra-hike (100KM) so I needed something that was (a) easy to listen too as I'm map reading at the same time and (b) exciting enough to fill in the time when there isn't any decent scenery to look at. This fits the bill. There are some excellent action sequences, the plot isn't too complicated and there are some genuinely funny jokes (very important in 4hrs of walking).

The one thing I would say is that Christopher Ragland's range of female voices is not great. I think that Granuaile sounds a bit like a simpering idiot (and she's meant to be hot, intelligent and spirited, go figure), so I've taken a star off performance. That's my opinion though and it's certainly not enough to put me off. I'm buying the next one.

Continues to impress

I thought I'd be starting to get sick of this series by now... But then the author seemed like I know said that things needed to be changed up! And now the story line progresses exceptionally well! This book was fantastic, I cannot wait for the next one when my monthly subscription renews.

Fun story... Great performance

A fun next step in the series. After reading the first two went audiobook for the third and will probably do the rest this way, mostly due to the excellent reading and voice work which really bought the characters to life.
