    1. Omg! I was in love with ole what's his head. God! I forgot. That old Druid. He was hilarious! He was trying to get acclimated to life now and he was having a time. He was asking Hal if he had to get one of those fecking phones because he would shat coin if he had too. 😂


    2. This one of my favorite series by any author ever. The teaser description is great, but WHAT ABOUT OBERON??? Oberon, Atticus' faithful Irish Wolfhound, is actually my favorite character. I need to know that he's okay and that he may finally find happiness with a slutty poodle and an endless supply of bacon. This is very important!


    3. The characters were in fine form, the writing as usual was great. But it felt like it was missing a plot to me. This book felt like two and half story lines that all were smooshed together. Typically each book has had a theme and this was the first that did not. It was greatly missed. It felt like I started reading in the middle of the book. The ending was good but really unfulfilling as I was simply following events instead of reaching an important ending.Typically I give Kevin Hearne solid fiv [...]


    4. Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid Chronicles is one of the best things happening not just in the the universe of urban fantasy but in the publishing world today. With the seventh installment, Hearne graduates to hardcover where hopefully he'll find an even larger audience to appreciate the exploits of Atticus, Granuaile and Oberon.A quick word of warning, however. If you haven't read the first six installments in this series, starting here is probably going to be a confusing experience. While Hearne wis [...]



    5. Why mess with a good thing?I loved the first six books and actually kind of hated this one. My first problem was the change in format. The first five books were single first person POV and the sixth had one addition, which I didn't have a problem with because I thought it was a one time thing. But this one had three POVs which, in my opinion, did not work out. Not only did it take away from the story and make it really choppy but it was just weird! There were three first person POVs and two of t [...]


    6. I listened to this one on audiobook and it gave me a whole new view of things! I very much enjoyed the narrator's Irish accent, applied in differing degrees for different characters. His interpretation of Atticus was superb. However I did not care for Oberon's speech at all. That was a very small issue though:)Overall I enjoyed the whole book enormously. The author took a risk in writing from three alternating POVs especially as one of them was running a totally separate story for most of the ti [...]


    7. Full review now posted!This seventh installment in the Iron Druid Chronicles was just as much fun as the previous installments. So far, no book in this series has flopped or been a letdown for me, which is difficult to find in a UF series. However, it’s getting harder and harder to review these books without giving spoilers, so I’ll keep this brief.This book was a bit different from the preceding books in that it’s not told completely from Atticus’s perspective. We now have three Druids, [...]


    8. Love this guy. For a while, it was tough to scratch my Dresden itch in between Jim Butcher's novels, then I read my first Iron Druid novel. Now I love Atticus and Oberon every bit as much as Harry and Mouse (and Mister). Kevin Hearne is a goateed master of urban fantasy.


    9. I think it's time to start a new shelf. A shelf for series that have run their course. On this yet to be named shelf, there are already two slots reserved; one for Chicagoland Vampires & the other for the Iron Druid Chronicles. With this series, I can't exactly pinpoint where things started to go wrong. I remember feeling a sense of comfort in the earlier books. Atticus was charming and sweet as was the setting of Tempe, Arizona. Hearne's incorporation of mythology was also a big plus. When [...]


    10. Kevin Hearne’s genius seems to not just be that he has created Atticus O’Sullivan and the Iron Druid universe, but that he continues to surround Atticus with even more interesting characters. First, of course, is Oberon, his Irish wolfhound who is bound to Atticus through druidic binding and thus the two can converse telepathically. Next was Granuaile, his apprentice / love interest / fierce fellow druid and then all of the various gods and goddesses who Hearne draws with an experienced brus [...]


    11. This is probably my favorite urban fantasy series, period. I love Atticus, I love Hearne's nerdy humor, and I love the weaving of various religions and myths into the world Hearne has created. I'm glad that Granuaile got her own POV chapters in Hunted, because she truly shines here. Owen, Atticus' archdruid, is entertaining, but not nearly a strong enough voice to counter Atticus and Granuaile, who have already had six books of character development already.So, point by point.The Plot Shattered [...]


    12. Kevin Hearne gives equal first person perspective in Shattered to both Owen and Granuaile, but doesn't capture anything particularly original or interesting in said voices. And this means only a third of the book is in Atticus's voice; his humour and relationship with Oberon is really what makes this series for me. It also reads like three disparate stories sloppily mushed together. Very disappointing, because I've been enjoying the hell out of this mythos.


    13. What a slog! Waaaay too many POVs, too many characters, too many supernaturals, too many gods (what, do you think you will be punished if you leave one out?), too many magical artifacts, too many locations and too many plot lines. Really, everything from yetis to every fae you can think of, and gods from every culture, including Jesus for cripes sake? I kept waiting for the kitchen sink. This is a great series, but this book was just a confusing mess. Our heroine still just doesn't ring true for [...]


    14. This suffers from too many things happening, too many points of view, and a lack of focus. I enjoyed it to an extent, but not anywhere near as much as I liked his others.


    15. ***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List***Best volume of this series so far!!!I really liked the alternating chapters between Atticus, Granuaile, and Owen. This structure shows, better than any telling, that Atticus has severely underestimated both his partner Granuaile and his archdruid, Owen. Granuaile gets to adventure on her own, while Atticus and Owen manage to get each other into trouble. Oberon and Orleith are fabulous hound sidekicks. Owen shows that he’s not just a cranky old coot, he’ [...]


    16. Not that the prior books were particularly spectacular, but this one was a significant move downhill. If it were the first in the series, I wouldn't have bothered to move on - and frankly this one was so bad I think I'm finished now anyway. Sample issues: Hearne has moved from one protagonist (Atticus) to three (also Granuaile and Owen), all first person. Unfortunately, their voices aren't particularly distinguishable (which I guess actually means that wasn't Hearne writing the character of Atti [...]


    17. Not my favorite book in this series.Too many POV changes.Too many Gods, Fae, etc.Not enough plot.Overall just a boring book.



    18. DNF at 45%I am going to admit defeat. I really didn't think that this was the book's fault, but honestly, my interest with this series had taken a great hit. It started 2 books ago, with Trapped, after the 12-years jump. The thing is, I didn't like Granuaile as a heroine. I thought she was bland and unimpressive. So when she took more and more scenes, getting her own chapters here with her own adventure, I couldn't find it in me to care. I didn't feel the sparks like it did for the first 4 books [...]


    19. New format: each MC gets his own story space and avatar at the chapter headings. I like it.I like Owen Kennedy. Lots of action in India with the witch from a previous volume and we now have YETIs. I will be looking forward to the next book in the series.


    20. after a lot of back and forth, the you know what hit the fan was impressivehe must get so tired of the past coming back to bite him in the ass.


    21. Three gods, two Druids and a selkie walk into a barThis book is so powder! As usual, we're thrown right into the action and it doesn't really let up. What I found particularly brilliant was the recap at the beginning of the book, quickly explaining what happened in the previous six books in the series. The pronunciation guide is very welcome, too. But seriously, Scáthmhaide as the name of a staff? I forgot how to pronounce that pretty fast. Each chapter also starts with a small graphic showing [...]


    22. Now this is what I was missing in the last few installments. I just didn't realize it.I enjoyed the previous books, but they all seemed too easy. Even as things became more difficult in the last couple of books, everything was resolved a little too neatly and with a saving Hail Mary by Atticus.Those books had a lot of action, fast-paced scenes, and little time for introspection. Except the kind where Atticus seemed to show his humility, or being humbled by what he now realizes he didn't know or [...]


    23. **2.5 stars**Shattered is definitiely the worst book in this series. Instead of a cohesive story, we have almost 3 novellas told from different POVs: Granuaile, Atticus and Owen, with ocassional intervention by one another to tie the whole thing together. It just didn’t work. Granuiele has become a less interesting version of Atticus and the Arch Druid is a new character, so I didn’t care being so much in his head.The story starts after Atticus wakes up his Arch Druid to the fact that he’s [...]


    24. I went 100% audiobook on this - didn't even bother with the Kindle edition. There is a new character, Atticus old teacher, Owen, who is 2000 years old. If you thought Luke Daniels was talented, wait until you hear him channel this character, with a thick Irish broque! And Kevin Hearne writes this man out of time in such a funny way that he deserves his own POV chapters. Atticus and Granuaile each have their own POV chapters as well. Granuaile has a mission in India - her chapters felt a bit bori [...]


    25. "Shattered," the seventh novel in Kevin Hearne's "Iron Druid Chronicles," was a disappointment. The interplay between Atticus and Granuaile was largely absent, as they spent the book on separate adventures, and really, tying the Yeti into Celtic mythology? Hearne needs to figure out that NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE CELTIC TO BE GOOD!He also adds a third viewpoint character, here, and I frankly hate the character, Atticus's former Archdruid, Owen Kennedy (in the Anglicized version, I won't even try [...]


    26. Things I lovedOwen - He was a great addition to the cast of characters. I loved that we got his POVsOberon - He is always a favorite of mine and when he has more page time it's an outstanding addition to the humor.Yetis!Luke Daniel's narration! He really showcased his talent in Shattered! He did every role perfectly!Things I didn't love (didn't hate but could have been different)Multi-POVs for every chapter. I liked that we got Owen and Granuaile's POVs but I would have like a little less of Gra [...]


    27. Like every Iron Druid book, the odd numbers are better than the even ones. That said, I liked the introduction of Owen a lot, even though the change of format threw me initially. Luke Daniels narrates him to perfection. The Yeti were intensely amazing, and I want more of them in this series. Granuaile has finally become her own character, which is something I've been waiting for. I'm not sure this series is really ever going to resolve anything, though, but I'll keep following along. It's defini [...]
