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.

Yes. The performance was great and the writing is really well conceived and executed. I do not usually review books on Audible, but I had to put in a good word for this one. More please.
Sally Fay Viera. Cute, cuddly and all sorts of murderous. What's not to like?
Jake Sullivan. He does great accents and I can almost picture Jake based on this performance.
Let's face it, if you've made it through Hard Magic and Spellbound, you're definitely hooked. The real question is not "will I enjoy this book," it's "will this book live up to the expectations I've set from the first two?" I'm happy (and relieved) to say that, for me, it does - and in spectacular fashion.
Not only are the stakes higher and the powers more powerful, but Correia really cleans up on unanswered questions and unvisited aspects of his world. I can't help but think Correia had the whole general plot of this series mapped out before he finished the first book - it just flows that seamlessly from the first two. We also get some more detail on some of the background characters from the first two books, which is a lot of fun.
As usual, Pinchot kills it. Just, kills it.
I don't want to say anything else specific about the plot because it really doesn't need selling. I can't say I like Warbound more than Hard Magic or Spellbound, but that's more to the merit of the first two books than any detriment to the third. It really just feels like the natural progression of one long, fantastical three-part story, just as enjoyable at the very end as it was when I first met Jake Sullivan breaking rocks in Rockville.
Correia leaves his world open for more exploration, and while the ending was very satisfying, and quite epic, I can't help but secretly hope in the back of my mind that the story of the Grimnoir will continue.
If this series makes it to the silver screen, my head will explode.
Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.
The characters was so enjoyable
I like the spin on the world as a whole and the concept of powers (magic) Kind of made me think of the Xmen
Not really I did not enjoy his narration
The life changing position that all the characters were put through and the best part was the ending... WOW
A must read but the narrator was not good at all. If you can get past that you will enjoy this book
Easy answer, Bronson Pinchot - he makes the characters come alive.
It's a unique twist on any urban magic book. I like the way it's our "real" history but bent just slightly due to magic. Can't think of any other book that's like that.
How this guy creates very unique voices for each character and then remembers them and switches in and out of them - very impressive, and draws you into the story even more.
no, it's not that kind of book - at least for me
I now search for books based on Bronson's (yeah, we're that close now I can call him by his first name ;o) performance. Enjoy!
Top 5 series
The exchange on the beach at the end. The final battle was impressive, of course.
There are so many. Sullivan, Toru, Hinreck. Whoever did Fay was great too
Don't know where the story could go from here, but would love more of Jake et al. Love everything about these books. Bronson Pinchot is one of my very favorite performers.
Complex, Heroic, Creative
He is brilliant with all the characters, women and men alike.
Yes, I nearly did!
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.
Yes! Great story as is Monster Hunter!
Heavy Jake Sullivan!
Fae "I killed them real good"
Great book and end to the story line but I sure hope they keep the series alive!
Well written novels with a great story, good length and excellent production. I wish I could start them all over again, not knowing anything about them.
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.
