"Kevin Hearne creates the ultimate Atticus O'Sullivan adventure in the grand finale of the New York Times bestselling Iron Druid Chronicles: an epic battle royale against the Norse gods of Asgard. Unchained from fate, the Norse gods Loki and Hel are ready to unleash Ragnarok, a.k.a. the Apocalypse, upon the earth. They've made allies on the darker side of many pantheons, and there's a globe-spanning battle brewing that ancient Druid Atticus O'Sullivan will be hard-pressed to survive, much less win. Granuaile MacTiernan must join immortals Sun Wukong and Erlang Shen in a fight against the Yama Kings in Taiwan, but she discovers that the stakes are much higher than she thought. Meanwhile, Archdruid Owen Kennedy must put out both literal and metaphorical fires from Bavaria to Peru to keep the world safe for his apprentices and the future of Druidry. And Atticus recruits the aid of a tyromancer, an Indian witch, and a trickster god in hopes that they'll give him just enough leverage to both save Gaia and see another sunrise. There is a hound named Oberon who deserves a snack, after all. Praise for Kevin Hearne and The Iron Druid Chronicles "[The Iron Druid books] are clever, fast-paced and a good escape."--Jason Weisberger, Boing Boing "Celtic mythology and an ancient Druid with modern attitude mix it up in the Arizona desert in this witty new fantasy series."--Kelly Meding, author of Chimera "Outrageously fun."--The Plain Dealer, on Hounded "Superb. plenty of quips and zap-pow-bang fighting."--Publishers Weekly (starred review), on Hounded "An exciting mix of comedy, action, and mythology. [Atticus] is one of the best main characters currently present in the urban fantasy genre."--Fantasy Book Critic, on Tricked "Funny, razor-sharp. plenty of action, humor, and mythology."--Booklist (starred review), on Shattered"--"Kevin Hearne creates the ultimate Atticus O'Sullivan adventure in the grand finale of the New York Times bestselling Iron Druid Chronicles: an epic battle royale against the Norse gods of Asgard.

This book series has brought me laughs and tears and everything in-between.
I will undoubtedly reread it in a year or two.
Thank you Kevin Hearne ( )

I'm amazed, satisfied, filled with humor and equal dismay.

*wail* This is the end of the Iron Druid. The story of Atticus is done. *wail*

Fortunately, this last book is a wildly good ride, featuring a better Hel and Loki from some movies we've seen, a Ragnarok with full pantheons of the Greek and the Fae on board, as well as a number of great cameos from Jesus, Coyote, and the Monkey King.

This is one hell of a big blowout and it's time for Atticus to account for starting it.

And then there's the Oak Druid's sloth. I can't tell you how much I love her. I think Owen (Atticus's old teacher) is a pretty awesome dude. :) Hopping around the trees with his new friend and talking about bananas as power pills for monkeys is pretty sweet. :) Especially as an aside DURING THE WAR TO END ALL WARS. :)

I can see why the series needs to wrap up but it doesn't stop me from being sad. I am actually very satisfied with how it turned out.

As someone else has already said... "This book deserves all the wags!"

Foregone conclusion

A book with three main characters is challenging. Each character has to move their part of the narrative while watching the main story. One of the side stories did not do a good job of maintaining the pace.

I chuckled at the murder sloth, but it was out of place. A dissonant note in a tale of ragnarok.

The book felt like the main story was too short, so it got fluffed up with some extra ideas that really belonged in their own short stories.

I enjoyed the earlier books in the series. This was not a good ending. ( )
