I'm amazed, satisfied, filled with humor and equal dismay.
*wail* This is the end of the Iron Druid. The story of Atticus is done. *wail*
Fortunately, this last book is a wildly good ride, featuring a better Hel and Loki from some movies we've seen, a Ragnarok with full pantheons of the Greek and the Fae on board, as well as a number of great cameos from Jesus, Coyote, and the Monkey King.
This is one hell of a big blowout and it's time for Atticus to account for starting it.
And then there's the Oak Druid's sloth. I can't tell you how much I love her. I think Owen (Atticus's old teacher) is a pretty awesome dude. :) Hopping around the trees with his new friend and talking about bananas as power pills for monkeys is pretty sweet. :) Especially as an aside DURING THE WAR TO END ALL WARS. :)
I can see why the series needs to wrap up but it doesn't stop me from being sad. I am actually very satisfied with how it turned out.
As someone else has already said... "This book deserves all the wags!"
