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.

I've really enjoyed the series, much more so than the Monster International series, which was not bad. The three books built on one another very effectively. Bronson's voices and overall narration were also very well done. The characters are very well developed and fun to follow as the story develops over the three books. While the final climax was a bit apocalyptic it worked in the context of this alternative US that Correia created.
When it takes more than magic to save the world.
I love this series by Larry Correia. Mixing, switching and twisting history in a magical way. Here's hoping Grimnoir becomes a whole new sub- genre.
If you liked the first two, you will not be disappointed with the apparently last book of the series! The book has a good satisfying ending while leaving open the possibility of future stories.
Faye, absolutely. Her naivete and genuine innocence is charming, and her power level is amazing, yet she stays humble, thanks to her upbringing. She is thoroughly enjoyable.
Jake Sullivan. He portrays the character as gently spoken but intelligent, just as the book describes him.
If you haven't listened to the first two books in the series, do yourself a favor and download them first. This is a series worth listening to.
Don't know where the story could go from here, but would love more of Jake et al. Love everything about these books. Bronson Pinchot is one of my very favorite performers.
Complex, Heroic, Creative
He is brilliant with all the characters, women and men alike.
Yes, I nearly did!
Ever since Monster Hunters International I have patiently waited for the next book from Larry Correia. In a genre that can get bogged down in trivia or contain few or virtually no new ideas, his stories are complex, humorous, exciting and original. If you enjoy fantasy along the lines of the Dresden files or the Iron Druid, I would be surprised if you did not enjoy all of this series.
Yes! Great story as is Monster Hunter!
Heavy Jake Sullivan!
Fae "I killed them real good"
Great book and end to the story line but I sure hope they keep the series alive!
I'll keep it short. "Warbound" is the last installment in the Grimnoir Chronicles trilogy. I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy and each time looked forward to the next installment. Warbound brings the story to a worthy end. It was pure listening pleasure all the way through. The plot twists and turns were unexpected but credible. The action was intense. The characters even more engaging than before.
The narrator took this already thoroughly enjoyable book and kicked it to an even higher level. Each of his voices was finely crafted and well acted. It was like listening to a full cast performance of the story.
I was waiting impatiently for this book to be released and it did not disappoint. I listened to this over two days while at work. I hope that Larry Correia will continue this series, and that Bronson Pinchot will continue to narrate Larry's books.
Travel is essential, snowboarding a need. I love speed: cars, motorcycles, boards. Food is more than a requirement; on the best days it's a supreme indulgence.
Absolutely, already have actually. Why? It's non-stop action with a historical background, intermingled with magic and realistic characters. Besides, Bronson Pinchot is now my favorite narrator.
This man made each character an individual. You felt menace, sadness, anger...everything from each character he voiced.
Who'd-a-thunk that possible from Balki! (..am I dating myself?) The only other narrator with whom I've experienced his was Jim Dale (Harry Potter)
Had it not meant sleepless evenings, yes! Actually, the entire series was one continuous 'read' for me. I just got lucky this book dropped almost immediately after I finished Spellbound. You're better off listening to this continuously. You tend to lose minor things here and there...or so hubby's told me. He restarted book one based on my enthusiasm for the series :)
If you like action, adventure, historical-fantasy, magic, great characters, and re-imagined locations, you really need to read this series. It's unique enough to keep you guessing; (just) predictable enough to make it comfy.Do it!
"Does not skip a beat"
In the third book of the series Larry really keeps up the pace of the story and characterisation that makes this a class leader of the genre.
"Superhuman story and narration"
Warbound was a very enjoyable piece of pulp fiction. This is not the kind of book that is going to win literary awards, but it is the kind of book that will keep you "spellbound" from cover to cover. I really need to call out that the narration in this book in particular (and the whole series in general) was superlative.
Bronson Pinchot brought personality to every character and enhanced the action of pivotal scenes through inflection, volume and pacing. I have well over 100 audio books in my collection, and this was my favorite narration by a male narrator. Tokugawa!!!!
Spelling bad never felt so good.
"A very good story"
I liked it a lot, it was a very interesting story and well read .good job.
"a nice conclusion to a ripping yarn"
Top twenty, and i listen to a lot.
Heinrich ( not sure of the spelling)
A silky smooth voice which can inject a great deal of character into the major players.
I Thoroughly enjoyed this conclusion to the trilogy. It felt a little abrupt but that was likely me not wanting it to end. I read a lot of reviews of the authors other books which suggested he pushes a political agenda through them. In this books case i really didn't see it. If you take it seriously this book may not suit but i wanted solid entertainment and it delivered.
