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.

I love this novel. The story of Grimnoir is filled with history and a magic system that makes sense. Think of X men in 1930s with magic detectives
I liked the idea for magic and the pacing of the books. It also had a good ending. I would recommend these books to most people. They are a little dark and gritty, but as long as that doesn't bother you they are great.
I loved the way the writer intertwined real characters into the story. At times I would catch myself wondering 'is this the way it really happened' ? Ha, very well written and narrated.
The narrator did an awesome job. There are a lot of characters woven in and out of the story and I didn't lose track once. Thank you!
From start to finish this series has captivated my attention. Superb storyline, exceptional narration, I think this is the best audio book on all fronts that I have ever heard. I plan on following both the author and the narrator's careers and purchasing subsequent books that they are involved in.
Side note... my inner monlogue speech patterns are now similar to Jake Sullivan's. Thanks lol
The authors ability to connect you to the story and characters is perfect. The battle scenes are immense. The heroic death scenes were everything you could want. They had me shouting and even brought tears to my eyes.
"I am Lance Talon!"
The narration is spot on. Accents and inflections perfectly rendered. Listen to this series. You won't be disappointed. I love the attention to detail, period weapons, armor, vehicles etc...
Overall one of my favorite listens. Keep em coming. And don't change the narrator!
Correia really hits all the bases when it comes to great story telling. He is a genius. Pinchot is an amazing narrator. It's hard to believe there is only one person telling this story.
"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.
