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.

    "Algorithmic"

    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.

    "Keeps you on the edge of your seat"
    If you could sum up Spellbound in three words, what would they be?

    Actioned packed story


    What did you like best about this 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.


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    Did a good job for the most part with different voices


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

    yes

    Story
    "Good series for people who like magic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Spellbound to be better than the print version?

    Writing is good and narration is great, but maybe not for those (like me) who aren't into the magical genre. My first impression is to rate it lower, but that is difficult to do honestly. I believe I had the same problem with Book1. So the real problem is likely the genre (it's not really Sci-Fi) and likely should be in the fantasy section.

    "We are the government. We are here to help."

    Another great read in Mr. Correia's epic world of altered history where magic is real and a few lucky, or unlucky souls, possess it. This book adds new enemies for our heroes to fight. Enemies from an unlikely source, our own government.

    "Fantastic Followup to Hard Magic"

    I enjoyed this book. Its a great 2nd book in the series and is both a self contained story and a setup for a larger storyline that will continue in book 3 (?), Faye & Sullivan are great characters & it's been fun watching them grow and adapt to each new situation.

    Bronson Pinchot is wonderful as the narrator. My favorite moment was the discussion the Grimnoir Knight had with Doctor Lincoln in Ada, OK. The Doc plays a very small role, but is quite memorable.

    I've been a fan of mysteries since getting up with a notebook to solve Scooby Doo cases. I now write my own.

    Story
    "Book two of three, but see below."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'm not sure. The problem isn't with this book, it's with the one that follows, Warbound.

    It's like this. Hard Magic was great and served as a stand alone book. If you stopped with that one, you were good, but you probably wanted a sequel. This is the sequel, and it fits that role very well. But, it's not a stand alone book. It leaves things hanging, and if you listen to this one, you'll have to listen to Warbound as well. That's the problem. Warbound doesn't hold up as well.


    What other book might you compare Spellbound to and why?

    Like Hard Magic, the best comparison I can think of is Monster Hunters International by the same author, or the more action oriented titles of the Dresden Files.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with Fay (Fae?) stands out for me. She's the perfect blend of pure innocence and rabid psychopath, who can say things like, "I'm real sorry I shot you in the face the first time we met. I was having a bad day and was kind of confused, do you want a soda?" and make it impossible to refuse the drink.


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

    I'm not good at these.

    "They have stuck with the lesser of two evils."


    Any additional comments?

    Bronson Pinchot is amazing in his characterizations. Not a single voice sounds like a character I've ever seen on television or movies, and there are lot of characters in these books.
