This book like along with the first one in the series is completely different, fun, and entertaining. It's well written and quite fun to listen too, i would recommend it for sure.
Fast paced action with an intriguing storyline. I enjoy the combination of the world war II/first half of the 20th century era and fantasy/magic - the storyline is just enough like actual history to appeal to a history buff, and just a enough "magic" to add a twist. As usual with a Correia story, you get caught up in one character's tale only to move to another - and at first you are disappointed because you want to continue with the character you just heard (Jane), but within seconds you are caught up in the next character's viewpoint (Jake).
At first I wasn't sure if I would enjoy a different narrator; I really like and am used to Oliver Wyman performing Larry Correia novels. I do like Bronson Pinchot's performance, with the exception of "Dan". He talks entirely too slowly (even when Dan isn't trying to influence someone) and frankly it's so annoying it pulls you out of the story.
It's rare when you get an audiobook where the reading and the story are both exceptional, and even rarer when the sequel fits so seamlessly with the first book that it's just a continuation of what seems like one larger work.
Sullivan is the main character, and also the most interesting, in no small part due to Bronson Pinchot's fantastic voicing of him. He hits his slow drawl just as you'd imagine a big "heavy" would speak, but also nails the dry wit and well-read complexity of the character.
The cover art for this book is horrible, and really does a disservice to the fantastic story and amazing voicework. Trust the reviews ike I did - you'l be glad you took the chance.
Spellbound is good, not as good as book one in the series "Hard Magic" but still good.
The performance was excellent! The characters were great! I love the universe!!
Another strong story well read as before
It's a story not a text book so not really a valid question
Yes it's very well written with good story and interesting characters
if they had read the earlier book
Should have just said "to be continued..." rather disappointing.
Outstanding, a really great performance.
not really, entertaining though.
This is one of those books I just bought based on the reviews. I'd never heard of the author before.
And it blew me away from the very beginning. Such a unique story that was full of great characters and action. The plot seemed to unfurl like a flower. Complexity, twists and turns kept happening that were truly surprising.
The narrator did a great job with all the characters and I think was a big part of why I liked the book so much.
If you like any sort of action or fantasy you will enjoy this.
I didn't know I could consider myself a steam punk fan. A most excellent series! Bronson Pinchot was so good I went out and purchased more of his reads. This series is one of his best!.
Spoiler-ish : This book sets up for another one and I can't wait!
Ready to enjoy great books!
Yes I'm screaming at you lol. This is just as good as book one. So happy with the development of our original Grims and the new characters did not confuse the story. Cant wait for number three!
Fast, Fun, Fantasy
A different story connected to real history.
Well done, voices believable and easy to distinguish.
