“I have enjoyed the series up until his book. At first I loved the humor and the characters, especially Oberon. I thought having different Gods was interesting. Now I feel like it's let's see how much we can fit into 1 book with no real rhyme or reason. The more I read the more I just don't like the main character. I feel he is pretty stupid for having lived as long as he has. ”Vera wrote this review 5 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This is my favorite of the series so far, because of the storytelling by the oddly assorted band of mythical heroes who have vowed to destroy Thor, who everyone agrees is a "total douche-canoe." ”BethOrMary B wrote this review Saturday, September 7, 2013.

“Another excellent adventure with Atticus. This book definitely had a more serious tone than the others (and not enough Oberon!). It also took the series in a different direction, but I'm still enjoying the ride. I'm looking forward to seeing how Atticus deals with the fallout from the choices he made in this book.”Liz (Bugetta) wrote this review Sunday, July 28, 2013.

“The third book in the "Iron Druid" series. It appeared as if he was "name dropping", as if many gods and goddesses are easily accessible. (My opinion is going down.)”Jay Brian Schoonmaker wrote this review Friday, May 24, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

Iron Druid Chronicles Book Three
By Kevin Hearne
The best thing that anyone has ever heard about Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, is that he is a douche. Not only is Thor a complete jerk to put it mildly, he is a bully and takes pleasure at other peoples pain. Now after centuries of this, it is about to bite him in the butt. Atticus, the last remaining druid, along with a werewolf, a vampire, a sorcerer, another thunder God, and a team of frost giants they will travel to Asgard and exact revenge on Thor.
One of the best things about this series is how outrageously funny it is, such as having a beer with Jesus as he makes fish and chips appear on everyone’s plates. This book goes into more details into some of the side characters that have been in and out of the other two novels and if you find yourself on team Thor at the beginning when you hear each of their stories you are ready for the biggest butt kicking you will ever come across. This novel is much more emotional than the others, I did not cry thank goodness but came very close. But this quick witted man’s man is definitely becoming one of my favorite characters.
