Warbound: Book III of the Grimnoir Chronicles | [Larry Correia]

Warbound: Book III of the Grimnoir Chronicles

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.

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.

    "Just gets better."
    Would you listen to Warbound again? Why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sally Fay Viera. Cute, cuddly and all sorts of murderous. What's not to like?


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

    Jake Sullivan. He does great accents and I can almost picture Jake based on this performance.


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

    Absolutely.

    "A satisfying, all-in conclusion to Grimnoir!"

    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.

    "Great end to a great story"
    What made the experience of listening to Warbound the most enjoyable?

    The characters was so enjoyable


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the spin on the world as a whole and the concept of powers (magic) Kind of made me think of the Xmen


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Bronson Pinchot?

    Not really I did not enjoy his narration


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

    The life changing position that all the characters were put through and the best part was the ending... WOW


    Any additional comments?

    A must read but the narrator was not good at all. If you can get past that you will enjoy this book

    "The performance makes a decent story shine"
    Would you listen to Warbound again? Why?

    Easy answer, Bronson Pinchot - he makes the characters come alive.


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    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.


    What about Bronson Pinchot’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no, it's not that kind of book - at least for me


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    "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.
