And off Atticus goes into Asgard to kick some Norse god behind, against the advice of both Jesus and the Morrigan. There's blood, gore, mythical creatures, death and near death. Lots of fun to read, lots of plot points sure to be continued in the next book. The abrupt ending I could have done without. ( )

The adventure continues apace. The capers continue to grow in consequence, to the degree where it is getting a bit hard to imagine the main character surviving - which is starting to lend the story a surreal character ( )

I really loved this book. The only reason it isn't 5 stars is because his dog's dialogue was annoying and stupid after a while. ( )

Nasty in a lot of different directions. I still like Atticus, but again his decisions in earlier books are coming back to bite him - in this one, he gets a direct warning from Jesus (in the flesh - over a beer and some fish and chips) that he's on the wrong path, but he still goes ahead. End result: he survives, Thor doesn't, and neither do several of the group (recruited by Leif and Gunnar) that invade Asgard. Plus the long-term bad results that are clearly lying in wait from _these_ decisions... We don't see a lot of Oberon or Granuaile; basically all the action takes place in Asgard or on the way there. There's an interesting part where Atticus has to learn more about all the group he's bringing to Asgard so that his magic works; each of them tells the story of why they hate Thor. We learn a lot more about Leif, including that his friendship with Atticus started out with this invasion as its only aim. Leif claims that there's now more to the relationship, but Atticus has trouble believing that, for good reason. So - more backstory, on Atticus, Leif, Gunnar and the rest of the group; a fierce battle (which goes wrong in just about every possible way, right from the start); and the survivors escape and lie low. End of story. Less satisfying than many in the series. ( )

We get quite a look at the Norse mythology this time. Interesting & fun. That the gods have the manners & morals of spoiled children should come as no surprise & this is a perfect example. It's also fun to see how much trouble the druid can get into through trading for help & making promises. ( )

Book description
Thor, the Norse god of thunder, is worse than a blowhard and a bully—he’s ruined countless lives and killed scores of innocents. After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.

One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona. There’s a vampire turf war brewing, and Russian demon hunters who call themselves the Hammers of God are running rampant. Despite multiple warnings and portents of dire consequences, Atticus and Leif journey to the Norse plain of Asgard, where they team up with a werewolf, a sorcerer, and an army of frost giants for an epic showdown against vicious Valkyries, angry gods, and the hammer-wielding Thunder Thug himself
