For nearly two thousand years, there was only one Druid left walking the Earth - Atticus O'Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword kept him alive while pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he's got company. Atticus's apprentice Granuaile is finally a full Druid herself. What's more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern name Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.
Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus's chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury's still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki - or merely a pain in the arse. As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they're hoping that this time...three's a charm.

too many voices...

I love the Iron Druid series but in this one where u have the story told by 3 different characters (plus 2 dogs) I find it not quite so enjoyable as the previous books. Please could we go back to one or two different voices. That having been said it is still great fun and Oberon is as adorable as ever. Although u get a resume of the story so far - I would not start here but with book 1 - otherwise the significance of poodles will be a little lost :)

Too many Voices

Would you ever listen to anything by Kevin Hearne again?


Any additional comments?

Would be better if there was less of Granuaile talking in this book. Found her distracting, and her dog talking was getting to me. Atticus and his dog Oberon are the characters that made me buy all the other books.
I hope the next book goes back to just the two of them.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A chronicle of the druid, centered on the druid, not on the female druid, which every appearance was cheesy, boring, and tiresome. I fast forwarded a lot....

What do you think your next listen will be?

I do not know, but not from Kevin Hearne

Have you listened to any of Christopher Ragland’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

As a narrator, he is pretty good, but the story is not

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shattered?

I would not have published this book at all!
It has became a soap opera.

Any additional comments?

He finally did it, I'm out of here! no more druids, and no more Kevin Hearne.

Great story

Great story, and Ragland is always a pleasure to listen to. Real voice actors who actually put effort and emotion into their work make such a difference.
