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.

    "New Allies, New Villains, and More Hard Magic!"

    Correia gives us just enough of the new along with just enough of the old in Spellbound. We get some dynamic new characters without losing the tight-knit feel of Pershing's Knights, we get some new villains and new stakes that are just as dire but from a whole new direction, and our understanding of The Power grows and develops very naturally, as if Correia had planned it this way all along.

    Pinchot continues to amaze as he maintains his entire cast of characters from the previous book, and brings a while new set to life effortlessly.

    A great stand-alone story from beginning to end, but with some new plot lines that will clearly continue into the third book. I absolutely devoured Spellbound after reading Hard Magic, and was eager for more at the end.

    "Spell Binding"

    I thought that this was a great book, not just a great second book in a trilogy. I think that Bronson Pinchot continued to do an excellent job reading these books. I am totally caught up in this story. Now to wait for book three.

    "Outstanding sequel"

    The only disappointment is waiting for the third book. An outstanding story, well narrated. The characters are rich and well developed. I enjoyed this series much more than the Monster International series, which was a good story in itself.

    "A great follow up to Hard Magic"

    I dove right into this one as soon as I finished Hard Magic and I wasn't disappointed. If you like the first then you'll like this one too. There are great writing with interesting characters. The second book has basically become the X-men with magic instead of mutants, in 1930's but it's done extremely well. And who knew Bronson Pinchot was a narrating genius. I'll be going back to listen to anything he's done.

    "As Good As The First"

    A very fast paced story about the ultimate struggle between good and evil with wonderful, exciting magic that keeps you wanting for more.  In this series it is probably a good idea to read the books in order because this book picks right up at the end of the first and it will keep you on a wild ride right to the end.

    Great magical characters that are so unique, Larry Correia is so amazingly inventive to come up with so many different types of magic.  His main characters powers keep expanding and personal information about each of them is revealed throughout that makes them even more likable.  New and old villains that you love to hate and nonstop action, help to make this a fun, exciting journey through the mysteries of wizardry. 

    Bronson Pinchot carries an excellent pace and does a great job with so many dialects and accents, he adds depth and personality to the characters. Can't wait for the next book.

    "Bronson Pinchot can read the hell out of a book"
    What did you love best about Spellbound?

    Correia's world is fascinating and fun, and Pinchot does an amazing job of bringing it to life. I also love the pacing. Larry's just about ruined me for all other authors at this point. Everyone else seems dull and plodding by comparison.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Faye. She's a great big pile of murder and that's awesome.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really liked the scene with Heinrich in the prison cell. He's like a German honey badger.


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

    We wanted to, but weren't able to. The combination of the excellent writing and the excellent reading make it an easy one to get lost in.

    "It was well worth the wait!"

    Correia & Pinchot make a wonderful team. I would definitely advise anyone who likes the 'noir' type fiction/fantasy or urban fantasy to give both of these books a listen. Very entertaining!

    "Right again!"
    Would you listen to Spellbound again? Why?

    Larry Correia did it again with this installment! Fun and action-packed, this book picks up about a year after the first book's end. Where the Imperium was the focal enemy in the first book, another, more sinister enemy takes the lead in this book.


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

    Mr. Pinchot is perfect. Simply perfect.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait for the next installment in this series!!!

    "For Your Daily Testosterone Boost"

    Lots to like about this continuation of a solid series. Guns. Fights. Fun narration by Bronson Pinchot. In short, it's a solid testosterone-pumping novel with lots to like.

    "Another great magic action story."

    I would listen to this twice, the story is solid, first you know where you are who the players are in this post WWI saga about magic woven into the early 20th century. The writer creates a good visualization of the magic as its being used and takes you into a phone call with a dead villian and our hero Nate Sullivan, since the story is so good to that point I just went along with it, the writer earned it. I also don't usually like high violence action for long, but his action was awesome, a lightning bolt fight with such intensity that it ends the dust bowl of the 1930's. Listen to this book it must be done. I listened to the 1st book before this one and I highly recommend it too. The dark story, lightens up just at the right times with characters that don't take themselves too seriously even in a serious situation. The ending sets up the next book in the series which I will be buying as soon as it appears.
