Hammered Free download ò 4 review Hammered 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. I am really really conflicted about this book On one hand it has all the delightful character interaction solid action scenes and fun and fascinating new spins on mythology I ve come to expect from Hearne But on the other hand as the story unfolded a flaw in Hearne s world that s been ignorable until now was brought screaming to the surface And something happened that turned my stomach against Atticus and therefore the series in general Details under the spoiler cutview spoilerThe Good There are some really spectacular moments in this book Atticus farewell blessing is so lovely I want to pin it up next to my desk as a reminder for how to live my life You build and do not destroy you sow goodwill and reap it smiles bloom in the wake of your passing and I will keep your kindness in trust and share it as occasion arises so that your life will be a uenching draught of calm in a land of drought and stress 136 I greatly enjoyed the stories around the campfire too I appreciate how the mythology of all cultures well except the Norse apparently are treated with eual respect and validity Major props are deserved for the good parts because when Hearne is good he s GOODThe Bad Hearne s world just doesn t seem sustainable Or rather it doesn t seem like it should ve been able to sustain itself for the several thousand years it s been around Atticus participated in the deaths of two gods in the first book and half a pantheon in the third These books take place months apart I know Atticus has all kinds of superpowers backing him up but if gods can be killed so easily why don t they look like Swiss cheese by now Heck how are any gods left There s no indication that any of the pantheons of old had taken any damage at all in the MILLENNIA before the series began except for the ravages of waning mortal belief Not even accidental god on god violence like Ratatosk s death The action doesn t feel like it has history if that makes any senseOn a related note the catastrophic wake Atticus and Crew leave behind in this book really highlights how irresponsible Atticus is He s really not good at dealing with conflict I can enjoy a story with a protagonist who operates purely out of self interest I actually found the manic self preservation of District 9 s lead a refreshing diversion from the traditional action hero but a hero who is clearly invested in the safety of the people around him yet who places the value of his word over the lives of his friends and any mortal or immortal who gets caught in the crossfire Kinda backwards It seemed like every step of the way Atticus knew what he was doing was wrong and foolish but he did it anyway because of his all important Word I wanted to thwap him on the nose with my book and say Bad Druid No biscuit You d think someone with a score of centuries experience in lying low would be better at not making everyone in the universe want to kill him Deliberately incurring Bacchus wrath by claiming to be him or one of his representatives while committing theft That s just asking for troubleThe Ugly I don t know what kind of deal Atticus thought he was making with the Frost Giants regarding Freyja When he told them The goddess Freyja for example will be among the spoils I m pretty sure he wasn t expecting the giants to invite her over for tea and biscuits and a jolly game of tiddlywinks Unless tea and biscuits and a jolly game of tiddlywinks is slang for lots and lots of rapeHe saw how they reacted to her name he saw the men s arousal and the women s revulsion It doesn t take a two thousand year old archdruid to figure out what they had in mind Further I don t care if Team Let s Kill Thor wants to blame all of Asgard for Thor s asshattery I don t want to read about heroes who offer up goddesses to monstrous thugs for eternal gang rape I think that s a reasonable line to draw in the sandI hate that it had to come to this because Hearne is a really enjoyable writer with some fantastic ideas He s telling some of the most fun stories in the Urban Fantasy genre I don t want to cry SHUUUUUN because many of my favorite authors have written stuff I ve seriously objected to But book 4 is no longer an instant buy for me And when something isn t an instant buy it rarely makes it up my To Read ueue Suckage hide spoiler

Hammered Free download ò 4 review Hammered NightmareOne survival strategy has worked for Atticus for 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. 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

Hammered Free download ò 4 review Hammered 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. HookedI m hooked Kevin Hearne has created in Atticus a character with whom I can relate and about whom I am interested in reading and adventures I usually don t follow series but Hearne s Iron Druid books have me bound like an Irish druid Star Trek Smokey and the Bandit and other pop culture references a fun and witty Irish wolfhound companion fresh new connections to mythic and animistic legends an endless supply of possible adventures and themes what s not to loveHammered Hearne s third novel length installment in the series has been foreshadowed since the first book Hounded A showdown with a very different vision of Thor from the Marvel manifestation has been on the horizon from day one Hammered in that sense does not disappointHearne delves into Norse and other world culture myth and pantheon systems in clear allusions to Gaiman s American Gods and with enough charisma to make Neil Gaiman blush there is even a brief homage to Mr GaimanBut There were passages where I felt that Hearne became too informal where he lost the uality edge of his earlier works he seemed like he was reaching sometimes in almost a jump the shark half assed inventiveness like he was bowing to some unknown advisor who was leading him down a bad path Also from the early pages to the somewhat disappointing end this is clearly a part of a series The earlier books Hounded and Hexed though connected also worked as stand alones something that I was very excited about and that I lauded Hearne for creatingHammered was missing something the earlier two and the short stories had in spades and I cannot exactly put my finger on it this was just not as well put together The subtle humor and personality that ran smoothly through the first two seemed here forced and many of the uips and intentionally funny scenes came out campy or farcical In some ineffable way Hammered lacked the charm of the earlier two pun intendedThis is still substantially good if not always procedurally and there is still much to enjoy a Shakespearean uote battle during a high speed chase in a rented Ford Mustang and a tribute to Chaucer where the different characters told their stories of how they came to hate Thor was probably the best part of the book Again I like that he can use and borrow from an almost inexhaustible supply of heroes and gods my favorite Dungeons and Dragons text was brought out Deities Demigods Cyclopedia of Gods and Heroes from Myth and Legend to check out the Finnish hero VanamoinanmomThe old saying about pizza and sex applies here when it s good it s great when it s bad it s still pretty good
