I just love Larry Correia's work, his books are just so dang fun. You can feel his love for the story, and his desire to just give you a dang good time.
Already have. It's a mental getaway.
Don't want to give anything away, so I'll just say Deliliah.
All Grimnoir Society, can't pick one.
Can't pick one.
This is a Great Series, you will not be disappointed with listening. Only qualm about narration was that Lance sounded differernt in this book. But otherwise, once used to change although annoying (mild) still great story and narration.
Larry Correia writes wonderful gripping stories, but this Hard Magic series (of which Spellbound is the second) is easily the best. I rank this series with some of the best books I have ever read/heard, including Lonesome Dove which I consider a classic for making you truly live the story. This book does the same; you get so involved in the story that you have to re-orient yourself to the real world when you break away from the book. The characters are so well developed they nearly become friends, and you want to continue to hear more about them.
Bronson Pinchot may be the best narrator I have ever heard, even better than Simon Vance and that is saying something. I would be happy to listen to him read the phonebook, he's so good. He gives the characters character with a consistent accent and inflection. You can always tell who is speaking even if the text does not specify. I now search out books he reads rather than searching for authors.
Bronson Pinchot. He's an amazing reader. He always brings the characters alive for the listener.
There is an excellent ballance between the action and the personal. This is a continuation of Hard Magic and it follows on perfectly.
I have listened to Hard Magic. This one is just as good. He does a brilliant job of giving every character their own voice. Even the non-dialogue portion of their point of view matches their voice.
Yes. I cannot say any more without writing a spoiler. However, I particularly liked Fay and Jake's characters. And Heinrich's. Okay, I liked all the good guys.
Because of the brilliance of Bronson Pinchot's performance, I will definitely be looking to purchace other books read by him after I finish this Grimnoir series.
Hughly well written & very well read. I have a 'head map' of each of the characters & I love that the women are as stong as the men
The description of how Jacques found Whisper
The scene where Fay did a major on the demon
Nope - I listen in my car on the way to the office & it makes the commute way more interesting
Just what I said - waiting for Book 4!!!
The plot is an extravagantly violent adolescent magical fantasy (not necessarily a bad thing), which is truly enriched by a reader who makes the characters sound bigger-than-life with a rich repertory of pitches, pronunciations and pacing. It's rare to hear one person voice as many distinct characters as a Disney animated movie.
Enjoy the adventure
“Hard Magic” was filled with thrills and chills, so I decided to toss out a credit for “Spellbound”, the 2nd of the Grimnoir Chronicles. Very engaging, a worthy sequel and has been placed on my good pile. The narrator, Bronson Pinchot, added to the fun.
The entire story was good. The narrator made it interesting and exciting, worth the credit, the story's plot was developed well. Hopefully a book III is in the wing.
The story is a serial and as such it will always have loose ends. Spellbound was better than Hard Magic, partly becasue the charectors are already established so the author could jump right into the story. There was more action and some interesting twists and turns. Bronson Pinchot did a great job of performing the book.
Bronson Pinchot, does a good job of having a different voice fore each character and does a fantastic job of sticking to those voices through both Hard Magic and Spellbound.
Spellbound was an OK story. It had it's moments.
