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.

The narrator does an amazing job with voices and Larry Correia develops characters like nobody else.
Fay is a complex wonderful and tragic character
the voices he used for Buck Minster Fuller was wonderful
The Power Rises
I have listened to a lot of books in my time, but I have to say Larry Correia is one of my all time favorite authors. He never lets his stories become bogged down. His style always keeps things moving forward with action and character development. This book is no different than the others in the series. Things pick back up with all your old favorites and you get to meet a few new ones along the way too. Bronson Pinchot also continues to show his great talent by giving voice and depth to already rich characters. I don't know if I can quite hear Jake Sullivan in my head any other way. The only problem I have is after devouring this book so quickly, I have to wait what seems a really long time for the next book. At least there should be a MHI installment between this one and the next so I can get a fix there too. I highly recommend this author and narrator!
I cried in sorrow. I cried in happiness. I've listened to whole series. These characters were real to me. The story is wonderful. The narration is wonderful. Worth your credit. But start at the beginning. I think the 1st and 3rd books are the best
Yes I would, and will listen to Warbound again. I just finished it in two sittings which is why my keester's sore so I will give my rear end some time to heel before I listen to it again. To answer the why I would listen again, because it's a solid ending to very unique, imaginative, and gritty trilogy with great characters that you can't help but to root for. Larry Correia is very good at character building which is probably why I've listened to every one of his books.
Hmmm, probably the end when the Iron Guard Toru gives Jake his sword to remember their battle.
It is too hard to pick a favorite. I'll tell you what, it's a tie between Sally Faye and Jake Sullivan. This is the trilogy right here that "BP" was born to narrate. He's probably the best narrator on Audible!
No, not really. To Warbound's defense, it kinda takes a lot to really move me.
Sad it see it end but hey, we still have "Monster Hunter International" to fall back on. I think?
vibrance of characters, living and dead. continues from other two books seamlessly, great continuation and more, of previously beloved characters. .A real 1930's ambiance is created,with magic, zombies, women with machine guns, superhuman men that are honorable amongst powerful and corrupt ones. .
this story knocked my socks off and left me feeling I knew everything I wanted to know about the characters . it was fun and thought provoking.
so many accents done brilliantly so much dedication to realness in the many people he portrayed that truly are historical figures and great depth in the books characters. he gets a standing O from me.
I don't want any other books now.
Sci-fi, mystery and action-adventure fan
I've been a big fan of Larry Correia's books since reading the first Monster Hunter book, but my favourite series has got to be the Grimnoir Chronicles. This third book in the series amps up the action and brings together many of the threads from the first two books in a very satisfying way. Bronson Pinchot also does a fantastic job with the reading, effortlessly switching voices, accents and genders to bring the characters to life. Great listen and highly recommended!
I liked the story and it was well plotted and a quick running book. There were quite a few surprises in the story for the main characters and to me some unexpected personal connections. It did seem a little forced in some places to end the series? I didnt expect it to be resolved in this book as happened. I hope we havent seen the last of Jake Sullivan and company.
Good characters, excellent plot pacing, and a truly outstanding performance by Bronson Pinchot.
Each character was distinct, and Pinchot obviously put real work into bringing them to life.
This trilogy is BEGGING to be made into a set of films. Marvel should come begging for the film rights!
6 of 10
My friends are Progressives and know the reality of the FDR programs that raised our nation out of corporate caused financial collapse. His anti-labor stance is very offensive to thinking, working people. I'm sorry to have rewarded his republican fantasy by purchasing this or any of his books.
Excellent narrative performance.
When the author referred to "Union leaders sucking at the teat of government," I was so disgusted that I was unable to finish the book.
Larry Corriea is way to right-wing for me to tolerate.
I think this series is fantastic. It is well written and keeps you entertained for hours Bronson Pinchot is a talented story teller with his ability to represent all of the different character voices so well. I don't believe that I would have enjoyed the series as much without Bronson's involvement.
"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.
