Sorry, didn't enjoy this.

I absolutely loved Kevin Hearne's Iron Druid series, but this one doesn't come close. The basic premise is that a bunch of heroes were active at the beginning of this invasion of giants. Then, a bard is telling their stories to refugees to lift their spirits, inform them of the news, entertain, etc. While the individuals' stories are fairly complete and there is a cohesive storyline tying everything together, I felt I wasn't able to learn much about the characters before there was a jump to another, similar to a collection of short stories. That lack of connection was what ruined the book for me.
