Publisher's Summary

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.

    Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell

    Story
    "Steam Pulp Fantasy"

    Larry Correia continues to entertain with his second novel in the Grimnior Chronicles. Time has advanced in his alternate universe moving from the pseudo-40s of the first novel into a pseudo-50s, where the only thing worse than being a commie is being an active. The Government has been infiltrated, the Grimnior framed, and anyone wearing the Grimnior ring is a target. Jake Sullivan leads the Grimnior efforts to fight back but he's being dogged by a beautiful Texan private eye. Larry Corriea's creative blender is set for pulp as fast cars, robotic soldiers, global conspiracies, and an unlikely ally are blended into a "spellbinding" adventure.

    Bronson Pinchot provides another solid performance. He really is a fine narrator: unfortunately, when I hear his name all I can think of is his "Serge" character in the Beverly Hills Cop films. I guess it is a compliment that he has voiced such a memorial character.

    I discovered Monster Hunters International last year and I have since read everything I could find by Larry Corriea. He has become one of my favourite authors and I look froward to his next release

    "books i have been waiting for"

    I really enjoy the series so far. That thing with the Traveller girl was well crafted. I normally like to think of myself as intelligent, but the first time through the book I some how was caught off guard when we learn why she is so strong.

    I am just blown a way by the perfect way it is crafted into story telling, because it keeps her from being over-powered at the beginning of the stories and saves up the bad-assery for the climatic battles.

    Larry Correia is now on my Must Read lists.

    Any additional comments?

    After loving the monster hunter books, I was worried about liking this story line. With that said, I was pleasantly surprised to find another great series. Eagerly awaiting the next book.

    "Strong second book, with further world building"

    I really enjoyed the first book, and this one continues in the same vein with a bit more character and world development. It does not focus as much on Jake, but much more on the Grimnoire as a whole. I really enjoyed listening to this book, and I can't wait for the next one in the series to come out.

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

    It ranks high on my most enjoyed listening to list. The books are clever, full of great characters that you really become attached to without realizing it.

    "Brilliant!"
    What did you love best about Spellbound?

    As with most of Correia's stories- the characters. Well developed and draw you into the story


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great plot and tie in with book one but still able to stand on it's own.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pinchot is an excellent narrator that does a fantastic job whit the voice of each character that draws you deeper into the story without being a distraction.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely looking forward to book 3 as the ending was perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    Better than book 1 with all the old characters back in the thick of it with some great new additions.

    "Great fantasy/Action and characters that grow on U"
    Would you listen to Spellbound again? Why?

    Probably not but only because I am have a voracious appitite for new stories


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Faye (and of course Jake Sullivan) is a delightful mix of naivete and killing machine...and the reader does a marvelous job of capturing her essence


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    Faye


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not extreme but very satisfied both with the entertainment value and the creative depth.


    Any additional comments?

    I am hooked on Larry Correia's sense of fantasy, both of his series are similar and highly recommended
