    Dark fantasy goes hardboiled in Book II of the hard-hitting Grimnoir Chronicles by the New York Times best-selling creator of Monster Hunter International. The Grimnoir Society’s mission is to protect people with magic, and they’ve done so—successfully and in secret—since the mysterious arrival of the Power in the 1850s, but when a magical assassin makes an attempt on the life of President Franklin Roosevelt, the crime is pinned on the Grimnoir.

    Where does Spellbound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best audiobooks/series I've listened to


    What did you like best about this story?

    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!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was ok, I had heard it was similar to the dresden files, I can see that, but only if it was crossed with Chuck Palanuik. it's supernatural, but the main character is very dark (which isn't a bad thing in itself) it just didn't hook me, but I definitely have friends who'd enjoy it.


    What didn’t you like about MacLeod Andrews’s performance?

    His "bored slacker" tone fit the character, and i've heard other performances, so I assume this was the director of the performance, but it just didn't pull me in.

    At the conclusion of The Mark of Athena, Annabeth and Percy tumble into a pit leading straight to the Underworld. The other five demigods have to put aside their grief and follow Percy's instructions to find the mortal side of the Doors of Death. If they can fight their way through the Gaea's forces, and Percy and Annabeth can survive the House of Hades, then the Seven will be able to seal the Doors from both sides and prevent the giants from raising Gaea. But, Leo wonders, if the Doors are sealed, how will Percy and Annabeth be able to escape?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    the performer murdered my experience. I'm currently about halfway through, and just downloaded a different book, as i'm not sure I can finish this one.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Rick Riordan? Why or why not?

    Yes, I've listened to many of his books, they're fun and fluff, and great for doing cardio.


    How could the performance have been better?

    It may not entirely be the performer's fault, as he's a new one, tossed in to the middle of a series, but I find his work to be flat, all the characters sound about the same, and it's just kind of difficult to get invested in the story.

    Jake Sullivan is a licensed private eye with a seriously hardboiled attitude. He also possesses raw magical talent and the ability to make objects in his vicinity light as a feather or as heavy as depleted uranium, all with a magical thought. It's no wonder the G-men turn to Jake when they need someoneto go after a suspected killer who has been knocking off banks in a magic-enhanced crime spree.

    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Having been an Audible member for several years, I've had the chance to hear performances from many different voice actors, some are very good and can really bring you into the story. I have to say that Bronson Pinchot is easily one of the best he does an outstanding job bringing the characters to life!


    Any additional comments?

    I will be up front and say i'm a sucker for urban fantasy, however Larry Correia has done an OUTSTANDING job creating a really fun and believable (in its scope) world

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Where does Patient Zero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd never heard of the series or author before I stumbled across this book, and I really enjoyed it. Fast paced, and interesting, it wasn't really what I was expecting. I thought this would be a much more supernatural read, which I enjoy, but was very pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed Joe, and immediately picked up the other books in the series as well!
