Overview

Shattered (Iron Druid Chronicles Series #7) by Kevin Hearne

Acclaimed author Kevin Hearne makes his hardcover debut with the new novel in his epic urban fantasy series starring the unforgettable Atticus O’Sullivan.
 
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 at last 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 equivalent of his old Irish 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.
 
But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat.
 
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.

About the Author

Kevin Hearne has been known to frolic unreservedly with dogs. He is probably frolicking right now and posing to his dog such timeless rhetorical classics as “Who’s a good boy?” and “Who wants a snack?” He hugs trees, rocks out to old-school heavy metal, and still reads comic books. He lives with his wife and daughter in a wee, snug cottage.

Thoroughly enjoyed this latest adventure. New characters, more plots. Couldn't put it down. Loved every moment.

I finished this book at 1am and LOVED it! This was quite possibly my favorite book of the series so far. There are TWO TALKING DOGS NOW! And more Druids! Lots of laugh out loud moments, and a few teary ones as well. If you haven't started reading this series, I highly recommend it.

This is just a fun series to read. Nothing earthshattering, but the books do entertain for a time. Looking forward to the next book.

Humor, dogs, Gods, adventure and Druids written in a fun, page turning style. What's not to love? The cover with our hero is hot too. Just an enormously fun read!

Kevin Hearne spoils me for other authors, his prose is so entertaining it leaves the writing of others in the pale. This latest installment of the Iron Druid series is just as fabulous as the others. A must read, especially for those who enjoy creative storylines.

There will probably be some spoilers in this so be warned. This book follows the paths of three characters; Atticus, Owen, and Granuaile. Atticus story line isn't worth mentioning. It's good, as good as it's been in past books. The reason why you fell in love with him and wanted to know more about him is all still here, with just as much Sirius Obereon. As for Owen, Owen's story line didn't really do anything wrong. It ranged from decent to entertaining. To see him hit it off with Greta was interesting. Though the huge reveal as to why she doesn't like Atticus made me want to bash her wolfy head in with a sledgehammer. You can't blame someone else for something your friends willingly chose to do. Now, the synopsis makes it seems like Owen's a wild card. But that's never the case. You know where his loyalties lie from the get-go and they never waver. Now for Granuaile. She has always been the weakest character in this series. In the beginning she had no personality aside from being the only thing that was of Irish decent and female in the story and over time she's only gotten worse. Her own story line deals with trying to save her father and finally letting go of her pre-magic life. Something she should've did during the 12 years of druid training, not now. Granuaile fails to save her dad and my reaction was "Who Cares?!" Throughout the series, she's only mentioned him briefly. She never really talked about him at length, therefor we, the readers, have no interest in his survival. And, if you're like me and don't like Granuaile, then you don't care that she lost someone she hardly spoke of. This is made worse by the fact that she turns around and starts talking about how bad of a father he really was. She's the type of character that messes everything up on her own, forcing you to wonder why she doesn't just call her 2000 year old boyfriend to help. But in this day and age, a man writing a woman that depends on her boyfriend would be considered sexist, instead of practical. Case in point, when she was nearly killed retrieving arrows for a reason never given, then left completely vulnerable for Loki. Granuaile's personality has changed as well. She's now a combination of Leif and Atticus, sounds weird I now. By the time the book ends, you're forced to realize that she did nothing throughout the while book. Her only real contribution came at the end of the story. Finally, these two complaints are for Hearne. First; the synopsis on the back of the book is misleading. Some of the things you claimed they would have to deal with they actually didn't have to deal with. Second; if you're going to make a character a gamer, then get your facts straight. Was a google search that hard?

I love reading about Atticus, Granuile, Oberon and now Orlaith. Kevin Hearne has the ability to bring these characters to life on the page completely fully-formed. I did find this chapter in Atticus life to be somewhat difficult to read with so many different characters perspectives but no matter what, Shattered is definitely worth reading.
