This month we read Hammered, book 3 in Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid series. This world is full of every mythology ever created, and it is always a treat to see how the different gods and beings "play" together.
I will not be including any spoilers, but consider the comments section to be full of all things SPOILERY, so read at your own risk.
I have to say that right from page 1, I was pretty sure that some of Ratatosk's descendants live in my front yard, because, damn, those things are huge. It gave me a very real image in my brain of Atticus' journey on the World Tree. I've always had an interest in Norse mythology, so I very much liked it's use here, even if the beginning did seem to fly by.
However, this book is one of those game changers. A lot happens and there are going to be some freaking huge repercussions. The danger has been rising with each book, and now I am wondering what is going to happen next, where this series is going to go.
How about you. What are your thoughts?
- How was the pace, the escalation of conflict/danger?
- What surprised you?
- Where do you think this is going next?
