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.

    "Great fun BUT..."
    What did you love best about Warbound?

    it's loads of steam punk Americana fun and the reading performance is up to par! Easy listen!


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    The Peter grant series. An other ''steam punk while not being steam punk'' type of books with tons of action , research, intelligence and a great performance by the reader! Less politics in the Peter grant series make it an even easier read IF... you have no trouble with a true Londoner's accent.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the pace is great, every thing is good


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

    surprisingly YES! some very nice, very human moments...


    Any additional comments?

    Great fun, it's loads of steam punk Americana action, the reading performance is more than up to par! BUT... there is a strong smell of libertarian-ism in books written by Larry Correia. Mr. Correia is well versed in history but Making FDR into an almost neo nazi socialist hypocrite and playing out Sir Winston Churchill as a wise and peaceful man... But still... A fun, easy listen!

    "What can I say????"

    Speechless....I loved, loved, loved this book. For me, Warbound was highly anticipated and it did NOT disappoint. Bronson Pinchot was delicious as always...and any qualms I had with his previous change in character voices were corrected this go round. I was very pleased. The plot was exceptional and entertaining from the word GO. The end of the novel actually wrapped things up a bit, so it seems this may be the last in the series. The thought of this was actually pretty sad to me because I have grown to love the characters so much.

    What did you love best about Warbound?

    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!

    "A winning combination..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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 -


    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Warbound to be better than the print version?

    YES


    What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

    The Lost Gate. They both are just a very good listen. The whole series is wonderful.


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

    It is hard to explain. I once bought a book just because he read it and I was not disappointed.

    "Great Series"

    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.

    "Great 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.

    "Love this author's books all of them"

    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.

    "Perfect"

    A perfect ending to this "trilogy", though if he decides to bring them back for an "encore", I certainly won't complain. I really, really enjoyed this entire series, even if it's hard to describe the plot without it sounding sort of silly (Magic, hard boiled detectives, Samurai, space aliens, ..... and on and on) . It's not silly at all, trust me on that. The story draws you in and moves along faster than anything I can ever remember. And finally, Bronson Pinchot is simply incredible, and his narration adds so much to a book that is already just about perfect. As good as Rene Auberjonis is for Pendergast, and James Marsters is to Harry Dresden, which is about as high praise as I can imagine.

    "Touch of Magic, Touch of Action, Touch of Politics"

    What a great performance by Bronson Pinchot! Don't take me wrong: the book is a great piece of entertainment and I enjoyed it thoroughly. However, I was very impressed with the way how Pinchot gave everyone a character, managed to sound as if it was performed by a group of actors, and still preserved vocal clarity.
    The book is the third installment in the Grimnoir Chronicles trilogy. If you didn't read/listened previous two books, don't waist a moment but go ahead and pick them up first. Not only that they also provide with as much entertainment, but the story continues from one book to another and preserves continuity. And you won't regret it...
    This is a superhero book, but with a touch of more substance that can be found in similar books - mostly coming from a good characterization of the main protagonists and the level of allegory that reflects on the sociological aspects of modern society.
    The main critique for the third book is coming from unexpected angle and it regards the author's black & white advertisement of political beliefs. The issue is not in celebrating conservative values, but how there is no room for any shades of grey in painting these political beliefs. Anything non-conservative is by nature rotten, bad and is working against humanity: government is trying to enslave people, taxes are not-so-hidden robberies, any kind of state control equals to enslavement... And while the superhero books are by nature meant to show everything as black and white, it is still challenging to justify the extremes used by Larry Correia in this book.
    However, this political comment doesn't really affect the entertainment factor all that much. The book is built on action and is built well. Combined with the excellent performance, this is easy one of the top 40 pop hits for this season... and likely for a few more.
