Audie Award, Paranormal, 2013
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. The knights must become fugitives while they attempt to discover who framed them.Thing go from bad to worse when Jake Sullivan, former P.I. and knight of the Grimnoir, receives a telephone call from a dead man—a man he helped kill. Turns out the Power jumped universes because it was fleeing from a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. That predator has just landed on Earth.

I have a huge audible library and rarely write reviews. I'm only writing this review because Spellbound and all of the Grimnoir Chronicles are in my top three series of ALL TIME! All of Larry Correia's books are amazing, but the ones that Bronson Pinchot narrates are the BEST!
All of the characters are so different and amazing, with great backgrounds and different talents...its too hard to choose a favorite.
Yes I have listened to a few others and he is amazing in everything he does. However, the Grimnoir Chronicles by Larry Correia are by far my favorites
YES! And the unabridged versions are over 16 hours! Normally I only listen to my audio books in the car since I have such a long commute each day, but I found myself bringing my mp3 playing into the house and listening all day long!
I only comment and review my absolute favorite titles...and I could make great comments on this series all day long!
If you love action, tragedy, triumph, & magic read this series. The story pulls you into the characters, the nonstop action, you can't put it down because you want to know how the good guys are going to get out of the next mess. Love the witty banter. I'm enjoying the Grimnoir Series better than the Monsters Inc. stories. Great reader too; loved how he voices the characters, I can really picture each one as if was sitting in a movie theater. Though I am constantly to turn the volume up and down.
Once again Larry Corriea delivers.
The stakes are higher, the consequences more dire and the action just keeps on rolling.
Bronson Pinchot continues to amaze with a breathtaking performance.
The story brings so many comparisons into play you follow the story with several subplots swimming in your head! couldn't put it down.
Shoot-'em'-up (with magic) followed by minimal context necessary to set up next shoot-'em'-up (with magic), repeat, then repeat again. End cycle by promise of future editions of same. Algorithmic.
Reading and listening to books is a way of life for me I love to get out of my world and immerse myself in something new
Actioned packed story
I really like everything by Larry Correia I had read so far. This story is creative and keeps you wondering how the characters will survive.
Did a good job for the most part with different voices
