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.

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.<br/><br/>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.

Great story and a good ending for the series

I finished this book around... it must of been 4 in the morning a week ago or so ago.

That being said I liked this series and I think that this book is a great end for the series. At least I hope it is, the ending was satisfying and the knights deserve their rest.

I guess one way to describe it is that it was a good three course meal and now your full but not stuffed, and satisfied.

I do like the world though, the magic system is interesting and in my opinion if Larry Correia wants to continue on in the world I think it would be best done with other characters or with a time skip.

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.

Great Trilogy

The Grimnoir Chroncles are anything but Grim. This series has been a wonderful ride and a real adventure. The diverse magic and likable characters are incomparable to any other fantasy series I have read. Larry Corria has a real knack for creating lovable mavericks, and the imagination behind each characters magic is perfectly ingenuousness. I hope that he finds a place for them in his future writing. I would miss this posse of nonconformists.

Bronson Pinchot is so amazing. It is unbelievable that it is only one person doing the narration, it felt like a whole cast of actors from start to finish. Not one of his voices are forced or phony, in my opinion one of his best. Starting with book one is recommended.

Excellent wrap up.

This is an excellent wrap up to a very good series. The writing is an interesting mix of genre, little bit steampunk, little bit noir, little bit fantasy. It all blends well with the PERFECT reader. Bronson Pinchot it one of the very best out there. Definitely a 5 star series all around.

As Constant as Gravity

As is to be expected of the final volume of a trilogy WARBOUND manages to wrap up all the character story arcs nicely. It is clear that the end was in the mind of the author from the very beginning since all things seem to work toward the climax. I commend Larry Correia for his strong plotting. But the plot is not the strong point of this audiobook; its strength derives from the collaboration between the writer, in creating a cast of quirky characters and giving them exciting things to do, and the narrator, Bronson Pinchot, who literally gives these characters a voice. This is a great sudiobook. I am not sure if I would have ever stuck with it had I read it in its print form, but as an audio performance by voice artist Pinchot this becomes an enthralling adventure.

Bronson Pinchot has impressed me as being a top flight performer. I am now seeking out books not for their content alone, but for their suitability for a performer like Pinchot to demonstrate his artistry in my ears.

Great finish to a great series

Would you listen to Warbound again? Why?

All ready have. In fact listened to all three again. Enjoyed as much, if not more than first time.

What other book might you compare Warbound to and why?

Hard to compare since have not read a book like it. American history mixed with alternative universe. <br/>If had to pick, Theft of swords by Michael Sullivan. Believable characters, humor and interesting story line.

Which scene was your favorite?

Faye in dead city

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

"It!s just like history class.... With one VERY important difference."

Any additional comments?

Well worth your audible credits. I like to get a "best bang for the buck" as we'll as good story. Being around 16 hours long, this has both.

Noir Fantasy, approaching epic status

If you have passed on Mr. Correia's books because you are not a sci-fi or fantasy fan. Please reconsider. He has developed a story with depth, intrigue, action, and characters it is impossible not to care about. I really believe that if Mr. Correia had started out with a big publishing company rather than self publishing he would be credited as one of our best new thriller/action/fantasy writers. There is something for everyone in the Grimnoir trilogy, I know that I will be revisiting the stories both in print and on audible (outstanding performance by Bronson Pinchot on all three volumes).

Give him a try, you can always ask for your credit back, but I suspect you will be hooked after the first one. I have 532 title in my audible library, and no one has please me as a reader/listener as much as Mr. Correia. If you are hesitant, I do suggest you start with the Grimnoir trilogy before moving on to the Monster Hunter opus (but I suspect you will be anxious to give that a try as well).

My new favorite book. Larry Correia for president.

I finished this book in less than a week,and i work more than a full time schedule. My favorite audio book used to be Swan Song,but Larry Correia has changed that. This book was non stop action form beginning to end. I was hooked early on and couldn't wait until the next time i was going listen to the story. Im not going to say a thing about the story. You can read the description for yourself. But any loyal Grim Noir listeners will love this book. There are a few characters that i would love to see have their own story told. But ill leave that to all of you to figure out for yourselves. Spend cash,spend a credit. ITS WORTH IT. FANTASTIC STORY.

Magic, Action, Love and Loss

Any additional comments?

Growing up Bronson Pinchot was Balki Bartokomous, a beloved character in my Friday night line up. As an adult he has taken me into the world of magic and monsters with Larry Correia. I can't imagine a better partnership. Right up there with Ginger and Fred. <br/><br/>The only con is the fact that I will now have to wait another year or so to hear more from my favorite Grim Noir characters<br/><br/>Good thing Pinchot has narrated 93 other books in the meantime to keep my busy :)
