This mountain of books isn't going to listen to itself.
Character, Action, Story. Those are my favorite parts about this book.
The best moment was when the sword gave old matty a splitting head ache. lol
This Narrator was Fabulous. I want to steal him and make him read Epic High Fantasy books.
This book was so action packed I had a hard time being moved. When Browning shot the Grey Horse in the head. Threw the entire conversation I was thinking just shoot him all ready.
As other reviewers said don't judge a book by its cover. If you looking for something a little different this book is a must. The whole Alternative history in the 30s is something that is completely not up my ally. But the story steals the world building and you don't even really notice the time frame. The characters in the story do act and talk like you would from that stereotypical time frame. I found that very enjoyable to listen too.
All and all this book is very fun and action packed. 5 stars on all accounts.
3 words is not enough! I've listened to this series multiple times, it's like an old friend and always great
love the melding of magic with the history of the late 20's and early 30's. the world that correia has created is at once realistic and fantastical. he makes the appearance of magical powers in certain people mesh seamlessly with the very real technological miracles of the day (zeppelins, phonographs, guns) and the use of real people like Stuyvesant and Churchill anchors the stories in time and place while giving it a sense of realism.
I read the books after listening to them and I prefer the audible versions. Bronson Pinchot is one of the best narrators I've ever heard. he gives life to all his characters, their voices are distinct and recognizable (except for Jane's loss of accent in the 2nd book, what was up wit that?) you can tell Pinchot approaches each book with the extreme care of an actor playing a role that he loves.
I wish I had the time!
this series is great, as are correia's monster Hunter international books. I discovered these books through audible, and I'm glad, because his books are not that easy to get since he's published by a small house. I am really glad that audible produced these books and with great narrators - Pinchot for the Grimnoir Trilogy and Oliver Wyman for the MHI books.
Larry Correia created a world within our own that pulled me in and made me want to dive into the action! The "quotes" by actual historical figures were especially entertaining in Correia's world where magic is real and not everyone can wield it. Gravity spiker, Jake, was a hero to love! There are travelers, and cogs, movers and beasties, brutes and cracklers, and if that doesn't peak your interest to find out what this world is all about...? There is Bronson Pinchot! His special magic was to give individual life to each of these amazing characters with a voice of their own. Wow... just WOW!
Where shall I begin? OK I'll start at the beginning no wait let's go to the middle no that want work either go to the end. It does not make a flipping difference every word of this book... NO TREASURE is WONDERFUL!!! Never before have I felt the raw passion from an author and narrator like HARD MAGIC! Since listening to all three Chronicles I've searched for it's equal and am found still wanting!!!
I like his Monster Hunter series ... but was hesitant to listen to this series because of the cover. Big mistake - the Grimnoir books are incredibly deep and even better thought out than the MH series! Filled with historical fiction and one of the best narrators I've ever heard - this is one series you can't miss!
I like sci-fi and fantasy books Dresden Files is a must for anyone!!
Faye, teleporting is a cool power to have, and the character was easy to like.
The holdup at the mansion against matty!
Book starts really slow, I almost stopped reading it. This book was confusing to start, character introduction sucks, some of the worst I have ever seen, what is everyone doing, and why!!! But after you grind past this, and understand the characters, this book really picks up, and is just as good as the monster hunter series.
The character Sullivan. Plain and simple. The story follows a crowd of integral characters, but Sullivan and Fae are phenomenal characters.
Sullivan recounting the events leading to his incarceration. You'll know it when you get there.
I'm not aware if I've listened to any of his performances before, but this one was awesome. The accents, the southern drawl of Sullivan and the German accent on Koenig. Very believable throughout.
Plenty of laughable moments.
If you like noir novels or urban fantasy, this novel is great. If you don't know whether you like those styles yet, give it a shot. Audible suggested it to me because of my previous interest in the Monster Hunter series by Correia and the Dresden Files series. The suggestion was spot on. Absolutely loved this series, I've been introducing everyone I know to the novels.
I've recommended this book. It's truly an interesting read
Great read!!! Twists and turns keep your mind engaged.
Favorite scene is the fight on the blimp with jake and the grimnoir
I don't have the writing skills to review this series like others do.
So if anyone is looking for a great action packed series, this it.
There is not one bit of lag in it.
And I love the way Larry rewrites history.
My favorite character is Faye of course.
I love the way Bronson reads and brings out her humor. She is so smart even tho she had no formal schooling.
Bronson does an amazing job with the different voices.
Get this series if you want to be entertained.
I have now relisten to this series 4 times.
Maybe down the road..
No, took several breaks
Bronson Pinchot was wonderful at all the voices and interpretation of the text. Wish he would do more.
