I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Okay you just have to face it, nobody can do a sexy vampire narration as well as Robert Petkoff. I forget sometimes just how good this series is until I re-visit it. It ranks up there with JR Wards BDB series. My only complaint is that Audible hasn't got the complete series yet, whats taking so long??? This is yet another great paranormal tale that I love to re-visit. Even with several new titles sitting in my library, yet unheard, I find myself drawn back to these books. It's like "I know it's been awhile, but I know you are sooooo good" thing. LOL.
First of all, I really liked this book. If your a fan of the paranormal genre then I think you'll like this one too. It's very mild in sexual content. It has a great plot and I'm looking foward to the other books in this series.
Now to my complaint. Why does Audible release books in random order? Book 2 of this series is not avaliable. This really irritates me. I have noticed this on other series too. For those of us with a touch of OCD books out of order tend to be a problem. I wonder what I have missed in the storyline because I liked the first book so much I will get book 3. UGH!!!!
This is a great series and narration is out of this world. My only problem is that Audible hasn't got ALL of them!!!!! I'm waiting because I will have this entire collection in my library. I consider it a must have.
I read, I write; I listen
Larry Correia’s Grimnoir trilogy has come to a conclusion in “Warbound.” There is so much I love about this series, that takes place is an alternate 1930’s era, that its hard to know where to start. The characters are true to the era, yet they live in a world that has been given magic from a creature that has come to earth in an effort to hide from a predator that wants to suck the magic out of the entire universe. Larry Correia’s use of real life characters from the Thirties such as John Moses Browning and General John, “Black Jack”, Pershing, and references to Nichola Tesla and his inventions, gives his alternative world authenticity.
In “Warbound,” Jake Sullivan, Sally Faye Vierra, and the iron guard Toru, are the main characters in this third installment. I really like the relationship that is formed between Jake and the Iron Guard; and of course, Faye is my favorite character in the series. There are still the other characters we’ve come to know such as, Pirate Bob, Francis, Dan, Heinrich, and Pemberly Hammer - the Bureau of Investigation's human lie detector, but their roles are diminished in this book. One of the new characters, Dr. Well, a sociopath and inmate of Rockville Penitentiary, that Jake recruits to help swart the greatest threat to earth, the Pathfinder, is also a standout character.
The battle action is amazing with magic being thrown from all sides and the technology that Mr. Correia adds, such as powered armor, and of course the flying airships, only add to the excitement.
On a side note; although this is the end of the trilogy, Mr. Correia leaves open the possibility for more Grimnoir adventures;let's hope.
About the narrator; it’s crazy, to me, that Bronson Pinchot, “Balki Bartokomous” from Perfect Strangers (one of my favorite sitcom televisions shows from the mid-80s and early 90s) is the narrator. This guy has range, and gives another great performance.
