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.

    "Readerbound for all of Larry Correia works."

    From other reviewers we are to conclude that this is the last book in a trilogy. Although there was a conclusion with the pathfinder, I don't believe this will be the end. There is so many different paths the story can go to, that hopefully this isn't the end of the Grimnoir Society. But if Larry Correia decides not to write anymore with this series, this book is a great ending. As usual the characters are great and there is lots of kick buttery, twist of history and darn right fun. I am defiantly a fan of Larry and will continue to read all his writings. Other humorous authors are Jim Bernheimer, Christopher Moore, and David Rosenfelt.

    "You've Come Along Way Baby!!!"
    What did you love best about Warbound?

    When the book was finished, I felt a sense of completion. The author brought it all together in the end. Yet, even with the comfortable finish of "completion", there we're many avenues left for the creative mind to follow and take their time. I'm waiting for the big thaw to put my two cents worth of literary finesse into an alternate finish to the book. I'M NOT WORTHY, I'M NOT WORTHY!!!!


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    "HARD MAGIC", because it is the first book in the series and you just have to give major credit to the author for coming up with the funniest and well read( by the narrator) character in all three books combined. Who is this person? Of course, non other than the dung heap ,red neck, devil child: Miss Sally Fae Viero!!!! Nuff Said!


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

    I would not have gotten through the first chapter if not for Bronson Pinchot. Seriously, this guy sound like the 1930's, carries all the accents for a pile of characters and makes you believe that "this" is the world we live in. Bronson is right up there with James Marsters of Bufy fame and his simply amazing work on all of "Jim Butchers", "Dresden Files" novels. Best books on the planet of course.


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

    YES, Because I listened to the first two books hidden away from the world. I'm sure this book will take me on a long needed vacation like the other two did quite nicely.


    Any additional comments?

    Getting "into" the story and it's characters was actually FUN! Just the concept of derigables as our best and fastest form of transportation was a HOOT, not to mention the footnotes or beginning of chapters with long quotes from now dead important political, science and progressive historical stand outs with a slightly different message than the one's originally put to paper with ink and an important seal of some kind.But these alternative view points are exactly what would have been said, recorded and written down if our country had gone through the same situation.

    "Excellent ending to an excellent series"

    Had forgotten all about this series until Warbound came out. Had to go re-listen to the first two books b/c it had been a while. Really enjoyed the series and Pinchot as the narrator was fantastic. He does such a great job with voices that you forget it's just one person narrating.

    Now I'm looking forward to Correia adding to the Monster Hunter series.

    "Best Narrator I've ever heard."
    Any additional comments?

    This was the best narration, with sooo many distinct voices that stayed perfect throughout all three books. I love Monster Hunter series but this is leaps and bounds above those books, totally out of the ballpark by comparison.

    The premise had me a bit iffy, but I've fallen in love with it and hope there is another trilogy in the same universe, maybe some prequels or something.

    "Hands down, my favorite book of 2013"

    Might as well add my two thumbs up to the couple thousand people who have already given this series 5 stars. (this is #3)

    After learning a bit more about Correia, what I find absolutely incredible is that he's only been writing for a few years, 6 or 7 from what I understand. He's incredibly prolific, and with a natural sense of action and pacing in his books.

    Pair him up here with Bronson Pinchot and you've got a series that kicks literary hiney.

    You're probably also going to want to snatch up a copy of the kindle version, because you're not going to want to put these books down- even in bed at night when wearing headphones gets to be a tad bit tangly.

    The scene where Fay was in Berlin

    When lady Ori made Jake a duck

    I'm a fan of Sci-fi, fantasy and suspense. I like books that keep me guessing till the end.

    "If you liked the first 2, you just HAVE to have it"

    How do you not love Jake "Heavy" Sullivan?? It's like Micky Spillane and Flash Gordon had a love child. Entertaining to be sure. It's written like many of Larry Correia's works and that means big action and over the top dialogue, and I would not have it any other way.

    The Chairman is pretty much Ming the Merciless and there is even a Death Ray. It's a great ride and Bronson Pinchot does an amazing job bringing it to life.

    The one caveat, I have to listen to it at 1.25 to 1.5x the speed or it just seems too slow to me. But at the slightly quicker cadence, it's perfect (for me).

    "Appropriate Ending"

    I thought this book was very well done. I thought this whole series was phenomenal (once I got over the covers of the books). I am very glad that I read all of them, but this was a very satisfying ending. I won't say that it was an emotional ending, I was not sad to see the end of this series (like I was for longer series like HP or Inheritance Cycle), but I will say I very much enjoyed these characters. Bronson Pinchot did an excellent job portraying the characters of Jake and Fae, both of which were awesomely well developed, funny, and likeable characters. If you have not read any books in this series, read them. If you have read the other two books in this series, you will not be disappointed.

    "Satisfying conclusion"

    I've really enjoyed the series, much more so than the Monster International series, which was not bad. The three books built on one another very effectively. Bronson's voices and overall narration were also very well done. The characters are very well developed and fun to follow as the story develops over the three books. While the final climax was a bit apocalyptic it worked in the context of this alternative US that Correia created.

    Highly recommended.
