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.

Loads of fun
Pinchot does an awesome job with the voices. Jake Sullivan is the best.
I was a casual fan of the Monster Hunter books and figured I'd try the Grimnoir books out for something different. Boy, was I impressed. The Grimnoir books just keep getting better and better.
Absolutely. The narrator was excellent, and the story was perfect for long car rides.
The characters. This is a fun bunch of folks to read about, in a really cool setting, going through well-paced, interesting, and action-packed story.
Jake Sullivan. Toru Tokugawa is a close second, though.
"Power: It isn't what makes you. It's what you make of it."
I have pretty much nothing in common with this author's well-known political beliefs, and I really did not like the first "Monster Hunter" book that I tried to read, but I have fully enjoyed every book in this series. On the strength of this series,and of Pinchot's excellent narration, I am absolutely looking forward to listening to "Dead Six."
Just a guy that likes a good story.
Amazing Airship Magic
I think the main thing was the action and the characters. Also the twist on magic is cool.
Great characterization. I loved him as Balki and I love it when he reads a book.
The very end. Jake and Taru. The warriors honor they display is always moving.
To anyone who enjoys a good pulp read this is your series. I highly recommend it. It has great Heroes and Heroines, great characters, and a ton of action. The writer takes a few twists but nothing overly complex. I thoroughly enjoyed this series and the narration. If you are a contemporary fantasy fan, pick this one up.
When reading a well written book its important to know the characters and with the Grimnoir Chronicles you fall in love with each character. Never before have I felt so in touch with each and every person in this book. Can't get enough! Plus Bronson Pinchot does a brilliant job in bringing each character to life!!
I'm an avid listener and have been enjoying audio books for over ten years. My preferences are for SF and fantasy, but anything will do if I like the narrator. I also love movies and video-games.
The third in the Grimnoir Chronicles, this novel was a very satisfying conclusion to the series. For me it was very easy to listen to, and Pinchot is an absolute master at creating characters with voice; I could play bits of this for a "non-audiobook" listener, and they say--no way that's one guy! In my opinion, Correia is an excellent storyteller, I love the pacing and the depiction of the 'world.'
Rich exciting romp
I liked how the story continued to grow but it did not overwhelm you. The original concept of this series is a lot of fun. I want to read more about this world and characters.
The different voices and I appreciate he narrated all of the books in this series.
yes, unfortunately I could not.
I will buy the next installment as soon as it is available.
Dad, Dentist, Adventurer. Well... at least 2 of those.
More of the great characters we all love. If you haven't given this one a try you really owe it to yourself to check these out. I was blown away by how good it was.
This has been the best audio production book series I have listened to. The voice acting was superb!! The audio was well edited (no annoying discontinuities or pronunciation blips). I think this is what it would have been like to listen to the old radio shows of the 50/60s. Great story and great vocals kept me hooked through the whole series
Great end to a good series.
I was so impressed with this piece of work. He did an amazing job.
Top 5 amongst Ender's Game, Stranger in a Strange Land, The Joe Ledger series and Day by Day Armageddon.
All of the battles are vivid. His description of teleporting during battle brings to mind images that surpass what Nightcrawler was shown to do in X2.
