I said I wasn’t going to binge read them…but I just couldn’t help myself.
Here’s what I’ve been doing for the last month:
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Thanks to good friends who give great books as birthday gifts, I’ve discovered this fun series.
What if the Gods and Mythologies from every age, religion, and culture were real and lived among us?
I’m talking druids, fairies, witches, werewolves, vampires, demons. (Watch out for the witches and demons, they’re nasty. The werewolves and vampires are okay, though–they’re lawyers.)
Meddling Irish Gods. Meddling Greek Gods. Meddling Norse Gods. (Oh, hello Thor. Apparently you’re a jerk.) Meddling Roman Gods. Meddling Native American Gods. Meddling Earth Gods.
What if they were all alive and continuing their eons old arguments with each other right under our noses?
What if they used magic to fight each other? What if they had magic swords?
What if you could talk to your dog using a mental link, and your dog was hilarious?
What if all this was true?
Then you’d have the Iron Druid Chronicles.
Lots of fun. Great action. Laugh-out-loud dialogue.
The swearing content is moderately high, and there is some sexual content as well. I wish there weren’t, because I know a lot of young people who would enjoy this story. Instead I’ll recommend it to adults who like to have fun when they read.
