Scourged (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #9)
By: Kevin Hearne
My Rating: THREE out of FIVE stars
Best for: Adults
This is the last book in a 9 book series, so if you’re reading this it’s because you want to know what I thought of the ending.
Ragnorok happened. The Druids saved the day. Atticus got was Jesus told him he’d get. The dogs were hilarious. And there’s a man-killing sloth. Those were the good things.
On the other hand…
I didn’t enjoy the execution–there wasn’t much of a beginning, middle, and end. The story just kind of started, the events happened, and it ended.
And speaking of the ending…
Lacking. Everything gets wrapped up, but I feel unsatisfied. I didn’t get closure, and I wanted different endings for the characters.
It wasn’t awful, though. By all means, finish the series!
If you’re new to the Iron Druid Chronicles, give book one a go. It’s worth it! See my series review below.
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.
