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.

It's so well written. The Characters so well thought out. The ideas so smart.
Jake. The Heavy, gravity Spiker - the ultimate pulp adventure hero.
Smarts. Really amazing ideas that set you back on your heels they are so fresh and new.
It's climax is nearly impossible to hear it's so intensely good!
This is the BEST trilogy since Lord of the Rings. It's pulp fiction, taken to it's very best possible limits. Maybe the middle book is my favorite. But Bronson writes his bad guys and good guys with the same deep love and understanding. You feel for them all, cheer for them all, and cringe from the monstrous evil put down in literature since Pulp horror master H.P.Lovecraft wrote about Cthulhu and the great old ones. You love pulp? You love Lovecraft? you got to read / listen to this!
if you have reached book 3 nothing more needs to be said . however , the narrator deserves to be mentioned. i initially balked at bronson, thinking i could never listen without balki intruding. it never happened.
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.
Extremely well performed by Pinchot, the characters really come to life. One of the best audio books I've listened to.
Great characters and world. I was cheering for the good guys and jeering the bad ones. Action scenes were very well described.
Faye or Jake. They were both great.
Really liked this series and loved Bronson Pinchot's narration. The only part I did not like was the ending. I'm not going to spoil anything, but would have prefered something in a little different direction. Having said that, this was a good book and a great listen!
The third in the series, i was very excited to see this book released and was not disappointed. I would recommend this sequel wholeheartedly. Gripping, well crafted, superbly performed -
This is the third Grimnoir book I have listened to, all narrated by Bronson Pinchot. As with the previous two, I totally forget that it is just one man reading - he sounds like a complete cast of actors. His characterisation, voice, inflection ... one of my favourite narrators on Audible. I wish there were more novels narrated by him. What talent.
As with the first two Grimnoir books, I didn't want this one to end. I resisted the temptation to go back to the beginning immediately - but it won't be long before I listen again. Audible books at their very best.
The Lost Gate. They both are just a very good listen. The whole series is wonderful.
It is hard to explain. I once bought a book just because he read it and I was not disappointed.
You know the book and series was great when you are finished you feel a sense of loss. i did with this book. This book is not life changing but it is fun and you can feel the authors mixing of current day politics.
You will need to listen to series in order. Do not skip around. Not that you will want to.
If you love magic and mystery with characters that may the journey fresh listen to this series.
Love this series. The characters are very vivid and the story line and plot very good. Not as predictible as some sci fi series. Always something interesting just around the corner. The narrator is awesome, and I believe won some awards for his performance. He really brings a great story to life. I hope there are more books to come from Larry Correia.
Took me a while in the first book to get used to accents, but we love this book. The only thing is I wish I had found them after 6 or 7 had been written so we wouldn't have to wait for a next one. Hope there will be 6 or 7 of these.
