I stumbled onto this series by mistake. After reading my last Vince Flynn Novel I had a need for more. I searched the internet for suggestions and a few people referenced the author as a alternative to Flynn. I don't usually go for Magic and Fantasy but the way he writes the books you start to believe that its real. It has been a great series and was finished well. It was inline with all the preceding novels with a few twists.
can't compare it with anything else. The story itself was so out of my normal reading stream that I can't even begin to compare it to anything else. The Narrator is fantastic. He is the future of audio books. He brought the characters to life, the different voices allow you to easily create a relationship with the characters. The only thing I can say about this book and series is that it is a perfect example of what a audio book should be. Escapism.
All of them. Great Narrator.
It was enjoyable and a great ride
Dad, Dentist, Adventurer. Well... at least 2 of those.
More of the great characters we all love. If you haven't given this one a try you really owe it to yourself to check these out. I was blown away by how good it was.
This has been the best audio production book series I have listened to. The voice acting was superb!! The audio was well edited (no annoying discontinuities or pronunciation blips). I think this is what it would have been like to listen to the old radio shows of the 50/60s. Great story and great vocals kept me hooked through the whole series
Great end to a good series.
I was so impressed with this piece of work. He did an amazing job.
Might as well add my two thumbs up to the couple thousand people who have already given this series 5 stars. (this is #3)
After learning a bit more about Correia, what I find absolutely incredible is that he's only been writing for a few years, 6 or 7 from what I understand. He's incredibly prolific, and with a natural sense of action and pacing in his books.
Pair him up here with Bronson Pinchot and you've got a series that kicks literary hiney.
You're probably also going to want to snatch up a copy of the kindle version, because you're not going to want to put these books down- even in bed at night when wearing headphones gets to be a tad bit tangly.
Top 5 amongst Ender's Game, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Joe Ledger series and Day by Day Armageddon.
All of the battles are vivid. His description of teleporting during battle brings to mind images that surpass what Nightcrawler was shown to do in X2.
The first book of this series caught my eye because of the title; "Hard Magic." It's gripping, right? Well, the description almost discouraged me, but the name was so great, I just had to give it a run...SO glad I did !!
The stories center around the evolution of magic into mainstream society. It takes place in the early 20th century, and Larry Correia does a terrific job of tying in history with his story. Incredible talents, Good vs. Evil, action, excitement, complex characters...just a terrific job.
This is installment three of the series. My son and I debate whether it is the final book or not. He did wrap things up well, but I think there's lenity of more adventures for these terrific characters. Give it a shot...it's worth it, and it's better after the first two in the series.
Larry Correia's creative story telling and character development is at the top of the genre. He keep me engaged with the story, I'm never wandering off.
Pinchot does a great job in each of these three books, bringing me right in with the character, whether male or female. Never a misstep. Joy to listen to.
I enjoyed this entire series and this final novel was an excellent conclusion. I was hesitant to listen to this because it was such a departure from Correia's Monster Hunters International which I love. However, the story and characters were so unique, complex, and entertaining I fell in love with this series. Pinchot portrayal of Faye and Henrich was inspired. While Jack Sullivan might be considered the hero, all the characters are so integral to the story which makes for a very satisfying listen!
By the third book, you know these characters and want to continue to see it all play out. The story was fast paced and fascinating, the narrator Bronson Pinchot has done the single best job I've ever heard-- ever-- defining the 10 or so main characters in this book through accent and intonation.
A great concept set in a fascinating period in American history, the author has created a fabulous series.
Bronson Pinchot is amazing through all 3 books of the series-- Hard Magic, Spellbound and Warbound. Warbound narrowly lost out in the "Best" competition, and it really should've won. He made a fun book into a great story.
I was riveted and entertained. I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. I both did and didn't want it to end.
I like this series better than the author's Monster International series (which is also entertaining). These characters had more depth to me, and the interplay was more genuine.
