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.

    "Satisfying ending to the trilogy!"
    Where does Warbound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I was more that satisfied with the ending to the Grimnoir Chronicles. It was definitely action packed and tied up the story nicely. I love how Correia created such a strong female character as Faye. The rest of the cast is pretty male dominated but a few other good female characters give enough balance.

    "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

    "Outstanding close to an outstanding series"
    What did you love best about Warbound?

    This book wraps up the development of personalities and relationships, and it wraps up the main storyline in exciting fashion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This time, it's a toss-up. It's between Jake Sullivan (reluctant leader plagued by self doubt who must hide that doubt to lead people to victory) and Toru (Iron Guard abandoner who must live and work in a society completely different from his own). I think in the end, my favorite would be Toru. I very much enjoyed following him on his journey from a man who hates all things western to a man who finds grudging respect for those he did not previously understand.


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

    Bronson Pinchot remains an outstanding reader. My only reason for dropping him to four stars is because he changed some of the accents for some of the characters. At the beginning of the book, I found this distracting.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Blood and magic save the world

    "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!

    I will wait a while befor I listen to this lot again - it makes anything else I have listened to recently a little insipid

    The scene where Fay was in Berlin


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

    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.
