Warbound: Book III of the Grimnoir Chronicles

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.

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.

    Story
    "Haven't regretted a Larry Correia yet!"
    What made the experience of listening to Warbound the most enjoyable?

    The suspense, the bloodshed, the sheer blood and guts of it. Nothing sparkly or clean here.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Warbound?

    When Jake Sullivan revealed his plan M. I was bowled over. Totally did not see that coming.


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    His male, female and narrative voice are all very distinctive. No overlap, very well done. Although would like to see his 'shouting' voice actually shouting or at least a little louder. Only knew the characters were shouting via... he shouted...

    It was a little odd.


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

    Quest to find the Pathfinder


    Any additional comments?

    Go read it. It's worth your time.

    "End of the World"

    This is an awesome ending (or is it?) to a wonderful series. Mr. Correia brings it home with non-stop action, as our heroes joined by an unlikely ally fight an enemy bent on sucking the entire planet dry of life.

    Story
    "Oustanding Conclusion to the Grimnoir Chronicles"
    Would you listen to Warbound again? Why?

    Yes, and that rare thing for myself. My usual opinion would be why would I listen to again when I can listen to something new, but in case the answer is YES. The story while simple is awesomely entertaining and the Bronson Pinchot does a outstanding job bringing the characters to life in all three books.


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    Tie between Faye Vierra and Jake Sullivan, though Toru is right up there as well. The characters are all so well written and brought to life by Bronson that it really is hard to choose a favorite.


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

    Yes, I could have easily taken a long drive and hoped to get stuck in traffic.


    Any additional comments?

    Sad to see the series end, I will miss it and will listen again. Still what a great conclusion.

    Story
    "Why does it have to end"
    Where does Warbound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I stumbled onto this series by mistake. After reading my last Vince Flynn Novel I had a need for more. I searched the internet for suggestions and a few people referenced the author as a alternative to Flynn. I don't usually go for Magic and Fantasy but the way he writes the books you start to believe that its real. It has been a great series and was finished well. It was inline with all the preceding novels with a few twists.


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    can't compare it with anything else. The story itself was so out of my normal reading stream that I can't even begin to compare it to anything else. The Narrator is fantastic. He is the future of audio books. He brought the characters to life, the different voices allow you to easily create a relationship with the characters. The only thing I can say about this book and series is that it is a perfect example of what a audio book should be. Escapism.


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    All of them. Great Narrator.


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

    It was enjoyable and a great ride

    "AWESOME STORY FROM BEGINNING TO END"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Warbound to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Faye was the core of this story for me. She put things together so well and you can feel her pain throughout the book.


    Which character – as performed by Bronson Pinchot – was your favorite?

    I love the voice he used for Faye. Some would consider it dull witted but.... Just listen to the story you'll get the idea.


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

    When war threatens the world on all sides and a cosmic monster looms, the fate of the world rests in the hands of a cursed teenage girl. You can only say one thing...BRING IT!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Great writing and performance. Honor and love, cruelty and betrayal, Demons and a teenage machine gun wielding angel called Faye. What more can you ask?

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

    Story
    "So close..."
    If you could sum up Warbound in three words, what would they be?

    Not all there.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Larry Correia? Why or why not?

    Yes. And I did, but it's important to know what you're getting into with his work.

    He's a gun guy. The scenes with firearms of all types are very solid and accurate, but might be too detailed for "not gun people." He also dropped the veil a bit in this one and unloaded a good bit of his personal politics into a few places. That's not necessarily a bad thing, and authors have done it for years, but the feel of it here was that felt out of place. The story wasn't written around that idea as much as that idea was crammed into it.


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    His characterizations were, as always, gold. There's no doubt who is speaking, but he did have one dropped ball in this one. In the first book, one of the characters spoke with a French accent. In this one, she lost it.


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

    Yes, but I listen during a commute to work (45 minutes each way), so it was spread out over a couple of weeks.


    Any additional comments?

    My reason for marking the story down was that the whole thing felt rushed. It's almost like he wanted to do a continuing series, and then, about 3/4 of the way through this book, changed his mind and decided to end it at three. Everything is closed up at the end as far as loose ends go, and the way it all ends makes sense with the way it all started, but the pacing was so jarring that it just seemed wrong.

    The final battle should have been absolutely epic, but in fact was no where near as long or in depth as some of the minor fights in the earlier books. The events after that, where things were closed and the true, main threat was dealt with, felt like it was added as an afterthought. As if the entire plot of the fourth book was condensed down to a chapter to get it out of the way.

    I strongly recommend Hard Magic, but if you continue on with the series, I think you'll find it ends with a whimper, not a bang.

    "No Hugo award?"
    What did you love best about Warbound?

    Continuation of the characters. The author develops them and keeps expanding. Quite a gift.


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    I'd say Dune, the classic.
    Correia didn't write such a vast epic, but he explores a new world. It's like Dune on speed-dial.


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

    He's one of the best narrators out there. Nuf said.


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

    Legions of Grimnoir, the saga continues.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it. Send emails to the Hugo committee that they are out of touch with reality.

    If you don't like guns, don't review the book.

    Where does Warbound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top with Outlander


    What did you like best about this story?

    After Sally Faye destroyed a ship, Larry Correia added in the time it took her to do it. Funny!!


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

    I have only heard Bronson Pinchot in this series. He is amazing!! Makes me want to hear more.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep up the excellent work Larry Correia! I love the sense of humor in this series.
