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.

But Atticus isn...
My review and an extended sample of the audiobook are posted at Hotlistens.com. Hammered picks up pretty much where Hexed left off. Atticus must go to Asgard to steal a golden apple for Laksha to settle up a debt from the previous story. Leif wants to go to Asgard to kill Thor and there are many w...
This one is my least favorite in the series (I think, I'm pretty sure, anyway) -- Atticus is held to promises he made in the last book, which brings him into contact with the Norse pantheon -- particularly Thor -- and knocks over the dominoes that will change the lives of Atticus, Granuaile, and Obe...
Talk about your conflicted feelings. For those that have read the Iron Druid chronicles, you know how great the writing is and how good the stories are. If you haven't read them and you like urban fantasy with humour and a good, researched dose of the varying world mythologies, you can't go wrong ...
