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.

Larry Correia always entertains and Pinchot is a great narrator. both of these guys together really bring the story to life and the story is amazing. I usually listen to epic fantasy but i have been burning through these books so fast and can't wait to start the next one. you won't be dissapointed!
I love the characters as interpreted by Bronson Pinchot but he needs to bring more enthusiasm as opposed to reading like he's afraid he's going to wake someone in the next room if he's too loud.
Otherwise a great entry into the Grimnoire Chronicles.
Top 5 of all time!!!
The characters were all different and well developed. Bronson Pinchot is the perfect narrator for this series!
Everything! Different voices for each character. Subtle nuances! Excellent job!
Already have and he loved it too.
Anything I could write about would be a spoiler. Let's just say memorable moments include both action scenes as well as the ever witty dialog.
I couldn't imagine I would have done justice to the perfect interpretation of the characters' personalities that Bronson has brought. He truly made these characters real people with believable powers.
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.
Like the first book, well paced, fantastically stupid in the best way possible and true fun to listen to. There are even parts in this one that will cause a chuckle. When the Iron Guard asks Sullivan if they should stop and discuss feelings over tea, I couldn't help myself. Really great fun. Makes you want to get back to it.
Pinchot's performance remains top notch. He's really good at this. There was a bit more saliva background at times than the previous book and his new take on Lance and Dan were atrocious, but generally, his voices are great and help create the environment. Well done.
