I thought that this was a great book, not just a great second book in a trilogy. I think that Bronson Pinchot continued to do an excellent job reading these books. I am totally caught up in this story. Now to wait for book three.
The only disappointment is waiting for the third book. An outstanding story, well narrated. The characters are rich and well developed. I enjoyed this series much more than the Monster International series, which was a good story in itself.
I dove right into this one as soon as I finished Hard Magic and I wasn't disappointed. If you like the first then you'll like this one too. There are great writing with interesting characters. The second book has basically become the X-men with magic instead of mutants, in 1930's but it's done extremely well. And who knew Bronson Pinchot was a narrating genius. I'll be going back to listen to anything he's done.
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
A very fast paced story about the ultimate struggle between good and evil with wonderful, exciting magic that keeps you wanting for more. In this series it is probably a good idea to read the books in order because this book picks right up at the end of the first and it will keep you on a wild ride right to the end.
Great magical characters that are so unique, Larry Correia is so amazingly inventive to come up with so many different types of magic. His main characters powers keep expanding and personal information about each of them is revealed throughout that makes them even more likable. New and old villains that you love to hate and nonstop action, help to make this a fun, exciting journey through the mysteries of wizardry.
Bronson Pinchot carries an excellent pace and does a great job with so many dialects and accents, he adds depth and personality to the characters. Can't wait for the next book.
Neanderthal, Dark & Handsome
Correia's world is fascinating and fun, and Pinchot does an amazing job of bringing it to life. I also love the pacing. Larry's just about ruined me for all other authors at this point. Everyone else seems dull and plodding by comparison.
Faye. She's a great big pile of murder and that's awesome.
I really liked the scene with Heinrich in the prison cell. He's like a German honey badger.
We wanted to, but weren't able to. The combination of the excellent writing and the excellent reading make it an easy one to get lost in.
Correia & Pinchot make a wonderful team. I would definitely advise anyone who likes the 'noir' type fiction/fantasy or urban fantasy to give both of these books a listen. Very entertaining!
Lots to like about this continuation of a solid series. Guns. Fights. Fun narration by Bronson Pinchot. In short, it's a solid testosterone-pumping novel with lots to like.
If you are hardcore liberal Larry Correia's writings may not be for you. However if you aren't then the book as well as all his others are a blast to listen to. Can't wait for his next in this series and the monster hunter's series to hit audio.
Just really good writing and narration. Thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. Reminiscent of X-Men/New Mutants with a 1930's backdrop. Learned what a dirigible is.
