Book Review: Hammered by Kevin Hearne

Orig­i­nal­ly pub­lished at Ene­my of Entropy. You can com­ment here or there.

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

My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. This book has a non-​​stop pace, for rea­sons that will be obvi­ous to the read­er but can­not be explained to oth­ers with­out spoil­ers. I’ll just say “clear your cal­en­dar” because you’ll not find ANY good stop­ping places.

One of the things that tru­ly impress­es me is that Kevin Hearne doesn’t just show his char­ac­ters doing amaz­ing things, but shows them expe­ri­enc­ing the con­se­quences of their actions — some expect­ed, some total­ly unex­pected. I tru­ly enjoy his views of arche­types and myth, espe­cially com­ing from a char­ac­ter who walks around speak­ing to gods, hav­ing a beer with Jesus and throw­ing down with Thor.

I’m so glad that I have Tricked on hand, but I wish Trapped were out already! At least I have the extra A Test of Met­tle to read, too. I just can’t get enough of Atticus.
