Hammered by Kevin Hearne

Hammered (Iron Druid Chronicles, #3) - Kevin Hearne

Series: Iron Druid Chronicles #3

 

I kind of want to smack Atticus after this book. Although I still want to continue the series, I didn’t enjoy this one as much.

 

Atticus is finally off to kill Thor with the help of Leif and a bunch of others despite the threat of Ragnarok and a whole bunch of warnings not to go through with it. The flow of the story didn’t really work for me since the whole part where everyone was sitting around the campfire explaining why they all wanted to kill Thor came so late. There were also quite a few battle scenes all strung together and it just got old after a while. Oh well. Maybe things will pick up in the next one.

 

I read this for booklikes-opoly square #13 “Read a book about a (real of fictional) American lawyer or politician, or that is set during the Civil War”. Both Leif and Hal (one of the werewolves) are Atticus’s lawyers and some lawyering is done before they set off to get back at Thor, so I think it counts even though it’s stretching things a little. Pagecounts range from 273 to 310 or so, so this earns me another $3 for my bank, bringing the total to $67.
