It's a great story and now that the narrator seems to have woken up a bit, he actually did a decent job.
This story is full of fascinating characters. Of course Jake and Faye stand out but I have grown very fond of all the others in the little group of Grimnoir knights as well.
Pinchot's soft, dreamy voice is just not right for this action packed story. He does the various characters and their accents very well indeed but when someone is shouting or screaming you would never know it if he didn't say so in explanation. Very good timing with the funny parts. He's doubtless a very gifted narrator. This is just not the right kind of book for him.
Absolutely. And I'm going to buy the paperback as well.
Great good fun and I'm eagerly waiting for the next book in the series.
I just love the audio versions. They keep in companie on the road to work morning and night. Youn can't do that with paper copy.
All of the 5 books from this author are excellent. The monster hunter are very good try them.
I can' pin point one because the book keeps you on your toes all the way.
If i could i would but you sort of don't want it to end.
Just love it.
One of the best audiobooks/series I've listened to
I'm a huge fan of "supernatural" stories, as well as history, the resulting historical fiction is a lot of fun. Mr. Correia has done a great job of making a very rich world for his characters to live in. I listened to the first book and was immediately hooked!
Bronson Pinchot does an amazing job in his performance, though the voices have changed a bit from the first book, I can't say enough how much I've enjoyed both entries in this series so far!
Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell
Larry Correia continues to entertain with his second novel in the Grimnior Chronicles. Time has advanced in his alternate universe moving from the pseudo-40s of the first novel into a pseudo-50s, where the only thing worse than being a commie is being an active. The Government has been infiltrated, the Grimnior framed, and anyone wearing the Grimnior ring is a target. Jake Sullivan leads the Grimnior efforts to fight back but he's being dogged by a beautiful Texan private eye. Larry Corriea's creative blender is set for pulp as fast cars, robotic soldiers, global conspiracies, and an unlikely ally are blended into a "spellbinding" adventure.
Bronson Pinchot provides another solid performance. He really is a fine narrator: unfortunately, when I hear his name all I can think of is his "Serge" character in the Beverly Hills Cop films. I guess it is a compliment that he has voiced such a memorial character.
I discovered Monster Hunters International last year and I have since read everything I could find by Larry Corriea. He has become one of my favourite authors and I look froward to his next release
I really need to start proof reading my Reviews before I post them.
I really enjoy the series so far. That thing with the Traveller girl was well crafted. I normally like to think of myself as intelligent, but the first time through the book I some how was caught off guard when we learn why she is so strong.
I am just blown a way by the perfect way it is crafted into story telling, because it keeps her from being over-powered at the beginning of the stories and saves up the bad-assery for the climatic battles.
Larry Correia is now on my Must Read lists.
After loving the monster hunter books, I was worried about liking this story line. With that said, I was pleasantly surprised to find another great series. Eagerly awaiting the next book.
Spellbond book 2 was outstanding, it takes place in the 1930s that has been changed by magic. a credit well spent!

I really enjoyed the first book, and this one continues in the same vein with a bit more character and world development. It does not focus as much on Jake, but much more on the Grimnoire as a whole. I really enjoyed listening to this book, and I can't wait for the next one in the series to come out.
It ranks high on my most enjoyed listening to list. The books are clever, full of great characters that you really become attached to without realizing it.
The Fight scenes, of course!!
