I just re-listened to this series for the second time and I definitely think it is in my top 5 favorites. I thoroughly enjoy the way Mr. Correia incorporates clever little quotes with a touch of truth and a touch of magic. It is charming, action packed, and completely entertaining. Mr. Pinchot really brings the story to life and I'm sure I will listen to it again!
I love this novel. The story of Grimnoir is filled with history and a magic system that makes sense. Think of X men in 1930s with magic detectives
I liked the idea for magic and the pacing of the books. It also had a good ending. I would recommend these books to most people. They are a little dark and gritty, but as long as that doesn't bother you they are great.
I loved the way the writer intertwined real characters into the story. At times I would catch myself wondering 'is this the way it really happened' ? Ha, very well written and narrated.
The narrator did an awesome job. There are a lot of characters woven in and out of the story and I didn't lose track once. Thank you!
From start to finish this series has captivated my attention. Superb storyline, exceptional narration, I think this is the best audio book on all fronts that I have ever heard. I plan on following both the author and the narrator's careers and purchasing subsequent books that they are involved in.
Side note... my inner monlogue speech patterns are now similar to Jake Sullivan's. Thanks lol
I really enjoyed this book and all of this series. I've read them three times.
The authors ability to connect you to the story and characters is perfect. The battle scenes are immense. The heroic death scenes were everything you could want. They had me shouting and even brought tears to my eyes.
"I am Lance Talon!"
The narration is spot on. Accents and inflections perfectly rendered. Listen to this series. You won't be disappointed. I love the attention to detail, period weapons, armor, vehicles etc...
Overall one of my favorite listens. Keep em coming. And don't change the narrator!
