Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the final book in The Iron Druid Chronicles, two-thousand-year-old Druid Atticus O’Sullivan confronts the Norse gods Loki and Hel to stop the impending apocalypse, while Granuaile and Owen work to secure the future of Druidry.

“[Kevin] Hearne draws his Iron Druid Chronicles to a pitch-perfect close in this dizzy, world-hopping adventure. But amidst the battles and bargaining that go into saving the world, there is also an enormous amount of heart.”—RT Book Reviews


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 hardpressed to survive, much less win.

Granuaile MacTiernan must join immortals Sun Wukong and Erlang Shen in a fight against the Yama Kings in Taiwan, and 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.

I liked all of these books. And I had no issues with this one - until the ending. I did not care for the ending tied to Atticus. Everyone except him went back on their bargains. Read the book
Enjoy it, it was good. But my preference is to wish for a different ending.

So worth it

I get that so many didn’t like the ending but it was perfect for the character’s arc. Plus if you don’t like the ending, write your own book; don’t poo on someone else’s vision. It takes awhile to get there-nine books-but it’s ultimately a story of hope, of finding a path that lies in harmony with those around you, facing the consequences when you inevitably falter, and learning that that’s part of the path.

When you really need an editor to step up...

...and say “ you need to rewrite this, that’s no way to end a beloved fantasy series.” A lot or trite stuff in this one. Too much self guilt from Atticus and too much of an effort to make Atticus a martyr, while at the same time the message is that he had only himself to blame. Hard to buy into it. Most disappointing book of the series, and as it sits at the end of it, it taints the whole story badly. Often many book series drag on too long and the author stretches them out to the point where good ideas are exhausted and the story begins to feel contrived and out of character. To my view that’s what happened here, which is a pity. I did enjoy the rest of it.
