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.

    "Spellbound is Great!"
    What did you love best about Spellbound?

    Very entertaining listen! Action, G Men with X Men powers are part of a secret society out to save the world while Roosevelt's governmet wants to register them. Great twist on history with a supernatural thread. Worth the credit. Try it. You'll like it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake, the Heavy, & Faye, the Traveler, of course (the 2 main characters)


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

    Toss up between Jake, the Heavy who can alter gravity, & Faye, the Traveler, who can travel (of course) by jumping. The southerner in me just loves their accents . Bronson Pinchot is really a good narrator. If you like Michael Kramer, Kate Redding, or James Marsters then you will enjoy Bronson Pinchot.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It really was & I rarely say that about a book!! I finished listening to book 1 & couldn't wait for this.


    Any additional comments?

    Try this authors Monster Hunters series. You won't be disappointed

    "Hang in there, it gets better!"
    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    The amazing versatility of his voice and clear distinguishing of characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Stick with this book! Early on in the book I was completely displeased with Bronson Pinchot's narration. It turned out I just didn't like the way one particular character spoke early in the story. (The strange speaking style for this character is described in the book, and with that in mind, was portrayed wonderfully). Once I realized it was just characterization, I was absolutely thrilled with Bronson's reading of an already good book. I enjoyed the story, and the narration really made this Audible enjoyable.

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

    Most of the books I've listened to have been good, but this was the audio equivalent of "I couldn't put it down".


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Spellbound?

    "We've had a busy day. Kidnapped J. Edgar Hoover..." - or words to that effect. There are a few others that come to mind, but they'd be spoilers.


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

    Hard Magic is the only other one I've listened to, so this one has the same style and most of the same characters. Unsurprisingly, the performance is of similar quality. I love the way he voices the various characters, Dan Garrett in particular.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Angels, demons, and good old-fashioned conspiracies.


    Any additional comments?

    I eagerly await the next book in the series.

    "Excellent series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Spellbound to be better than the print version?

    I just love the audio versions. They keep in companie on the road to work morning and night. Youn can't do that with paper copy.


    What other book might you compare Spellbound to and why?

    All of the 5 books from this author are excellent. The monster hunter are very good try them.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can' pin point one because the book keeps you on your toes all the way.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If i could i would but you sort of don't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Just love it.

    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

    "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

    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
