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.

    "Larry Correia is truly a gifted fantasy writer"
    If you could sum up Warbound in three words, what would they be?

    Complex, Heroic, Creative


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

    He is brilliant with all the characters, women and men alike.


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

    Yes, I nearly did!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "pure listening pleasure"

    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.

    "Grimnoir knights rule"

    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.

    "Freaking AWEsome!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


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

    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)


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

    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 :)


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Wonderfully entertaining!"

    I have loved all of Larry C's work. I started with the Monster Hunter series and loved it. I then devoured the Grimnoir series and loved it just as much, if not more. I was surprised when Warbound's entertainment value was just off the charts. I think this series just keeps getting better. The author's imagination seems to have no bounds. Please keep em coming! And "Don't be ridiculous!". Bronson Pinchot truly brings this book to life. I mean, his top notch performance of this wonderfully entertaining book only enhances it's value to the listener. GREAT job!

    "A great finish to the storyline!"

    While I certainly hope there will be more in this series, this 3rd book of the Grimnoir Chronicles reaches the epic climax of the three part adventure. It did not let me down with the ending, and I enjoyed the heck out of this trilogy.

    Bronson Pinchot again elevates this book with his fantastic narration.

    If you are looking for pure escapism fantasy, into a fresh new adventure, this series is certainly it.

    Any additional comments?

    Like all in the Grimnoir series, this was near-impossible to put down. Correia has done it again with the perfect mix of action and magic in an alt-history 1930's Earth.

    Graphic, but not gritty/creepy violence. Outstanding action sequences. Some language, including a few f-bombs. As a movie, I imagine it would translate to a "hard" PG-13 (and hope it will!) Old-fashioned in good ways. The true villains are despicable. The heroes are imperfect, but still heroic (none of that back-and-forth "I'm a good guy, now I'm a bad guy, now I'm good again - who knows if I'm good or evil because all is relative" garbage so common in modern action writing). So, you love the good guys, and almost wish the book were bigger so each of them could have some more developmental room.

    I'll also jump on the "Bronson Pinchot is the best narrator ever" dogpile. Incredibly good.

    All in all, it's one of those that's so good I did dishes, yard work, running, and any other physically near-mindless task to keep listening.

    "Excellent"
    Would you listen to Warbound again? Why?

    Most absolutely. Exciting stuff.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sally-Fay Vieira, of course. She is the most un-innocent innocent ever. She's actually kind of scary re the ease & fun she has killing folks. For a super lightening fast thinking cog, the simplicity of her thoughts are quite endearing. Even when she's killing folks....


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Fay's 1 minute and how many seconds !?! killing spree aboard the Auspicious Dragon Imperium ship. That was something.


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

    I think the quiet intensity of Lady Origami should not be overlooked.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was really, really good. The characters are well defined, heroes die, the impossible become possible, emotions are real, and the action was dynamite.

    "Fabulous End to an AMAZING Series"

    I stumbled on Hard Magic when it first came out and absolutely loved it. I have read the Monster Hunter books as well because I enjoyed the Hard Magic Series so much. I have to say, Hard Magic, Spellbound, and Warbound are a million times better than Larry Correia's other series. Great world building, good character development, interesting magic and wonderful plot. I can't believe this series is over. It is like loosing a really good friend. Start at the beginning and enjoy. This series is one of the series that I wish I had never read so that I could begin it now and read it for the first time. Wonderful.
