This series just gets better and Shattered, if anything, raises the bar. The research and seamless intermingling of gods from everywhere is incredible and works amazingly well in the context of the storyline. And the writing is glorious with all the humour and detail delivered in spades.

Atticus’ old archdruid, who was frozen in time by the Morrigan on Tír na nÓg, for the last 2,000 years, has been resurrected, so to speak. Owen, as he is now known, is a fun character with his grumpy ways and Old Irish cussing. Atticus’ attempts to acclimatize Owen, and bring him up to date with the world he now finds himself in, are hilarious and I love the interaction between the two of them. Owen very quickly becomes an integral part of the story.

Although I’m not generally a huge fan of multiple points of view, in this instance the threefold narration works because Owen, Atticus and Granuaile are in different places a lot of the time. It adds immensely to the development of each character too while they are independent of each other. Atticus has matured and his principles, compassion and wisdom have grown accordingly.

Granuaile travels to India after a message from Laksha, and from there to the Himalayas to meet the hockey loving Yeti (amazing!) She faces difficult problems without Atticus for the first time, with terrible consequences. The scenes with Granuaile and her father, and then her mother too, are so well written the emotion is just palpable.

I love the addition of Orlaith, I’m glad it’s time for Oberon to have a companion. And, of course, Oberon and the interaction between him and Atticus, is as funny and entertaining as ever.

Atticus discovers who his unknown enemy is and it’s a shock, to say the least, for all concerned.

Format: Paperback
I've loved the Iron Druid Chronicles from the moment I read the first one. Shattered lives up to the rest of the series, though I wouldn't say it was the best one (hence four stars instead of five). I won't go into a detailed plot summary as that's already been done in reviews and product description.

It's told from the points of view of Atticus, Granuaile, and Owen - Atticus's old teacher and arch-druid. Each chapter heading is decorated with a dog, horse or bear head depending whose point of view that chapter is told from. This is a big help, since the abrupt changes can be a little jarring, especially as each is written in a slightly different way. For example, as always Atticus writes in the past tense. Granuaile writes in the present tense, and it's a little odd to suddenly go from one to the other.

Having the story told by three different characters in three different places allows a lot more to happen. Atticus's part of the story is helping to further the general plot arc of the series, while Granuaile's is almost completely separate and focuses more on her personal character growth. She faces challenges and threats not only without Atticus, but which are nothing to do with him and his shenanigans. This emphasises the fact that she is now a druid in her own right, independent and no longer standing in Atticus's shadow. Owen's sections are told in his own style, with his own personality seeping through.

I loved the parts of the book focusing on Owen's adjustment to the modern world. His language and way of looking at things made him come alive as a character, and gave him his own vibrancy. But he seemed to adjust all too soon - he appeared to learn modern English and fit in reasonably well with the world after only a few weeks.

I’m a huge fan of this series and every book to date has been a hit with me. I love the way that the author brings the world to life, has superb plotlines but for me, the key selling point is the characters that people his writing. They’re not only a blast to hang out with but they also feel individually crafted, with each having their own emotions, feelings and beliefs that not only help gel the plotline but gives everyone an unique voice.

Back this up with some magical prose and of course a pace that doesn’t let you go for one minute and all round I was a more than happy reader. Great Stuff.

I think this was a favourite one so far. While I really enjoyed Atticus' voice, using Granuaile and Eoghan really help keep the books fresh and alive and since Granuaile in particular has her own adventures in this one, it was nice to read about them from her point of view. It is always clear who's POV we're seeing as well - a testament to the author's skill.

Eoghan brings another quality to the books as well - an older, more cynical and definitely a more basic view of things. I hope we hear more from him in future books. And he is capable of tenderness :) Loved that scene!! (Read the book and you'll know the one I mean :))

Heart stopping moments are becoming more frequent and there were times when I wanted to punch the author, but it's a great story and I can't wait for the next one to be released!

I was slightly unsure about some of the middle books in this series, but the last one and this are just brilliant, the introduction of Atticus's old mentor is an inspired decision, hes a welcome touch of humour in an increasingly action packed- and darkening- series. Well paced, great characters- old and new, and overall i loved it.
