Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Paranormal, 2014

Audie Award Finalist, Solo Narration - Male, 2014

Audie Award Finalist, Paranormal, 2014

New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Larry Correia sets this gritty urban fantasy, a sequel to Hard Magic and Spellbound, in an alternate noir 1930s. A tough P.I. battles an interdimensional monster that wants to suck magic power out of the world.

Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next.

Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him. The world's most capable Active, Faye Vierra, could back him up, but she is hiding from forces that think she is too dangerous to live. So Jake has put together a ragtag crew of airship pirates and Grimnoir knights - and set out on a suicide mission to stop the predator before it is too late.

    "Better than it sounds"

    The first book of this series caught my eye because of the title; "Hard Magic." It's gripping, right? Well, the description almost discouraged me, but the name was so great, I just had to give it a run...SO glad I did !!
    The stories center around the evolution of magic into mainstream society. It takes place in the early 20th century, and Larry Correia does a terrific job of tying in history with his story. Incredible talents, Good vs. Evil, action, excitement, complex characters...just a terrific job.
    This is installment three of the series. My son and I debate whether it is the final book or not. He did wrap things up well, but I think there's lenity of more adventures for these terrific characters. Give it a shot...it's worth it, and it's better after the first two in the series.

    "Great Conclusion (?) to the Grimnoir Chronicles"
    What made the experience of listening to Warbound the most enjoyable?

    Larry Correia's creative story telling and character development is at the top of the genre. He keep me engaged with the story, I'm never wandering off.


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

    Pinchot does a great job in each of these three books, bringing me right in with the character, whether male or female. Never a misstep. Joy to listen to.

    "Correia and Pinchot are Awesome!"

    I enjoyed this entire series and this final novel was an excellent conclusion. I was hesitant to listen to this because it was such a departure from Correia's Monster Hunters International which I love. However, the story and characters were so unique, complex, and entertaining I fell in love with this series. Pinchot portrayal of Faye and Henrich was inspired. While Jack Sullivan might be considered the hero, all the characters are so integral to the story which makes for a very satisfying listen!

    Story
    "Warbound is great fantasy/action to the 3rd Power!"
    What did you love best about Warbound?

    By the third book, you know these characters and want to continue to see it all play out. The story was fast paced and fascinating, the narrator Bronson Pinchot has done the single best job I've ever heard-- ever-- defining the 10 or so main characters in this book through accent and intonation.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A great concept set in a fascinating period in American history, the author has created a fabulous series.


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

    Bronson Pinchot is amazing through all 3 books of the series-- Hard Magic, Spellbound and Warbound. Warbound narrowly lost out in the "Best" competition, and it really should've won. He made a fun book into a great story.


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

    I was riveted and entertained. I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. I both did and didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    I like this series better than the author's Monster International series (which is also entertaining). These characters had more depth to me, and the interplay was more genuine.

    "Satisfied but sad it's over"

    This was a great thrilling conclusion to the trilogy. By this point the characters are well formed and a real connection has been formed to them. While it may seem like the story is going to have a predictable ending there are still some really good twists and turns to keep it interesting.

    If you have already read the first 2 you are already going to listen to this as well so you don't need me to recommend it.

    "Oh, how I wish this series could go on forever..."
    If you could sum up Warbound in three words, what would they be?

    Thrilling, intriguing, excellent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Warbound?

    I don't want to give spoilers in a review but there were several times this book made me gasp and laugh out loud, or make me wan't to drive on, so I could keep listening and hear what was going to happen. It is a perfect ending to one of the best series I have ever "read".


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

    yes, I have and in this one he is just as excellent as his other performances. Book one I had to get used to his accent and voices but that was accomplished after a mere 15 minutes of listening, and now I couldn't imagine any other for the narration of this series. (that beeing said I do sometimes begin a new book just after I have ended another, even if they are not in the same series or topic)


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

    OMG that would be so awsome!!! no that wasn't the tagline and as the other two books in this series are equally awsome I would ofc. make three books (I mean if they can make the Hobbit in to three movies, this series would make 6 movies easily!) sorry I tend to ramble when I get excited... the tag line!? "fight or become extinct" meh not very good... luckily this book is so good I don't think it would need a tag line or it wouldn't matter if the tag line stunk!


    Any additional comments?

    The universe Larry Correia has thought up in this series is so believable and awsome. (like his other series... MHI which made monsters plausible) this one is Steampunk-ish, magic and airships.

    "Great fun BUT..."
    What did you love best about Warbound?

    it's loads of steam punk Americana fun and the reading performance is up to par! Easy listen!


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    The Peter grant series. An other ''steam punk while not being steam punk'' type of books with tons of action , research, intelligence and a great performance by the reader! Less politics in the Peter grant series make it an even easier read IF... you have no trouble with a true Londoner's accent.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the pace is great, every thing is good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    surprisingly YES! some very nice, very human moments...


    Any additional comments?

    Great fun, it's loads of steam punk Americana action, the reading performance is more than up to par! BUT... there is a strong smell of libertarian-ism in books written by Larry Correia. Mr. Correia is well versed in history but Making FDR into an almost neo nazi socialist hypocrite and playing out Sir Winston Churchill as a wise and peaceful man... But still... A fun, easy listen!

    "What can I say????"

    Speechless....I loved, loved, loved this book. For me, Warbound was highly anticipated and it did NOT disappoint. Bronson Pinchot was delicious as always...and any qualms I had with his previous change in character voices were corrected this go round. I was very pleased. The plot was exceptional and entertaining from the word GO. The end of the novel actually wrapped things up a bit, so it seems this may be the last in the series. The thought of this was actually pretty sad to me because I have grown to love the characters so much.

    "Great story, characters irritating."

    This trilogy was very fast moving and engrossing. Interesting take on the nature of magic. However, I had a hard time liking the characters, especially Faye, who I thought was pretty one dimensional and hopelessly immature. Bronson Pinchot's narration was very good except for one criticism: all of his southern accents sound the same, and they are all very annoying. I have family from both Texas and Virginia, and none sound as inarticulate as these characters. I especially didn't like Faye's accent, and Jake's wasn't much better. And, wow, can you say obsessed with guns!? I read the author's biography and understand why. All in all, though, a good read (listen?).

    "Epic conclusion"

    The trilogy wraps up in an exciting and epic conclusion. All of the questions are answered. I think that the ending was a bit rushed (that is my continuing critique of Larry Correia's work), but very satisfying.
