You ever notice the rampant child neglect going on in fairy tales?4.25 stars and my favorite installment to date. It's all a bit unconventional, but I love the kitchen-sink mythology going on here. You want to see your favorite god or myth represented? I can almost guarantee you'll find it in the Iron Druid Chronicles in one form or another. Norse gods? Native American legends? Fairy tales? That's a check, 1, 2, 3.Our happy druid-slash-dog team went through even more than usual this time around. Just when I was wondering how the series was going to keep from getting stale, we got a few new twists thrown at us. I was surprised to see Kevin Hearne taking chances with his characters the way that he did but I'm glad that he did. We got to see some of the story from Granuaile's point of view and I enjoyed being in her head, more than I'd expected to. I honestly didn't think before that I'd want time away from Atticus but it worked here. The peril was ramped up a notch and it was interesting to see how the new kid on the druid block handled herself. As always, the star of the show was Oberon the dog. I'm pretty sure that this is the one constant which will never change. All of the fans want an Oberon of our very own, even if he will annoy you to death with his constant obsession of poodles and sausage. He's still so lovable and brings all of the best lines in the story.Side effects from doggie joy may include face slime and leg-humping.She's so beautiful! Can I sniff her ass yet?If you're looking to find a series full of action, adventure, hilarity, and just a little bit of crazy, here it is.
