With the Japanese Imperium at war with the Soviet Union, and the United States watching cautiously on the sidelines, Second Lieutenant Joe Sullivan of the U.S. Marines is sent on a dangerous mission to Tokyo. The Russians have Summoned a demon of epic proportions to attack the city, and all that stands in its deadly path is an untested Japanese super-robot. Now, Joe is at the controls, his gravity-spiking Power at the ready. But that is one huge, mean Demon....

I read, I write; I listen
The “Grimnoir Chronicles” continues; for a few more hours at least, and if you ever wondered what happened to some of your favorite characters, like Sally Faye, Jake Sullivan and the Iron Guard Tory, then Larry Correia’s new short story, “Tokyo Raiders,” will answer some of those questions. The story takes place about twenty years after, “Warbound,” and a giant summoned demon, which reminded me of Godzilla, attacks Japan, of course, and Joe Sullivan, the son of Jake and Origami must join forces with the Iron Guard Toru, now general of Japan to help defeat this threat. It’s a quick but exciting listen with plenty of magic and technical marvels by the “cogs;” everything you would want in a Grimnoir story.
Bronson Pinchot is terrific as the narrator; as usual.
Let’s hope there are more, and longer, stories to come.
I like scifi and urban fantasy. I don't like romance novels. If you are the same my reviews should help.
Jake Sullivans's son piloting a giant freaking robot aginst a giant demon in the Grim Noir universe! If you are a fan of the series that should be enough to convince you to buy the story. I usually don't like short stories but this is a good one. My only complaint is that it could have been a whole novel. I will say that while it is a stand alone novel you won't get as much out of it if you haven't read the previous books in the Grim Noir series. As usual Bronson Pinchot knocks it out of the ball park. The guy is phenomenal as a narrarator. You definitely should give this one a listen.
Increasing my ops tempo by allowing storytellers to whisper in my ear(buds).
Now twenty years after WARBOUND we learn, in passing, what Francis and Fae are up to. The son of Jake and Origami joins forces with the Imperium to defeat a foe that could threaten the world if not stopped on the Island. Knowing that Larry Correia is still playing in the Grimnoir world leaves hope for a follow-up novel in the future. This little teaser makes me want more.
Bronson Pinchot is top-notch as usual.
The existence of a plot.
There was no story - it was just a fight scene - and a pretty predictable one at that.
i have loved Pinchot's performance in this series, but in this "book" his accent for a main character is totally different from the last two novels, which is very disconcerting.
Disappointment. I could not believe that this story is essentially a joke disguised as a fight scene.
a fight scene is not a story. There is no plot.
Total plot is: son of prior book protagonist fights battle to help prior book bad guys.
i loove great books especially mystery and suspense and gregg hurwitz
I really hope this is a series that wall every so often come out with an additional book I've listened to this series at least three times now and I enjoy every time
The duo of author and narrator for this series is just awesome. Keep them coming! Want to know more of how the main characters from the series ended up.
I have all of Larry Corriea's audio books and have listened to them more than once. All the narrators of every book have been great and the stories are usually nonstop action.
While Joe is helping the Japanese try to fight the Russian Deacon, he blasts the USA national anthem from the speakers of the robot he's working .....To the dismay of the Japanese ......
Bronson Pinchot is a fantastic narrator, when I see that he's doing a narration, I almost always listen to see if I think I'd want to get that book. He can do every voice and accent and emotions. I enjoy his narrations very much...one of my top 10
It was very easy to do because it was just about an hour.
Anytime I see Larry Corriea has a new book available I automatically get it, I've never been disappointed ever. One of my favorite narrators with one of my favorite authors....how awesome is that. .
"Grimnoir Chronicles live on!"
It was great to come back to Chronicles, even this was a short episode. Larry continues to write about stuff I would never consider interesting, and he does it in a brilliant way. If you never read MHI or Chronicles, do your self a favor and let Larry and Bronson Pinchot take you to a wonderful literary journey.
"Good as far as it went"
Just too short! Needs more plot development
Good to have links to other characters in the series
More please now
"Spoilt the series"
The first 3 books in the series were fantastic. I couldn't put them down. Sadly this one spoilt the whole effect.
