Since I was wordy on this review, I'll give an upfront for those who want to cut to the chase - Larry Correia has become one of my favorite authors, and this book is another great work by him. I strongly recommend it. I will say that, while the book can stand alone, it has much greater impact if you first read the preceding two books in Larry Correia's "Grimnoir Chronicles" series.

Because Warbound is very much a part of the series, I'll start with general observations about the author and the series. Warbound follows onto the first two books in this series - Hard Magic and Spellbound. All three books are set in an "nearly real" alternate reality that has much in common with the mid 1930's to early 1940's.

Correia's writing style in this series is similar to that in his "Monster Hunter International" - lots of action and a realistic usage of weapons and combat situations. While the use of "magic" is a centerpiece in the book, its existence and operation is presented and explained in a logical manner that makes the series feel more like hard science scifi from Niven and Pournelle than a fantasy.

Also as seems typical for this author, development of the characters is slow. Originally, it appears the characters are just going to be two-dimensional. However, the author builds in more insight and background on the characters as the novels progress. It is by no means a psychological drama, but it does have some depth. That is why I suggest reading the preceding books in the series to get full impact.

I love Larry's stuff, and have been waiting for this book for a good while. The problem I have is that this book feels RUSHED. There are a lot of things missing, slight recaps or character explanations for example, that would have really helped the story. In addition, it really feels as if he could have turned this into a longer novel, or better yet. . . . a fourth novel. The action sequences are great, but too far between the happenings. New characters are really cool, except that they feel like they have been appropriated from other novels. Hannibal Lecter, anyone? Don't get me wrong, the new Massive psychologist is really cool, but more could have been done with him, as with the new Icebox.

I think the hardest part is that the bad guy isn't nearly as cool or scary as the ones from the first two novels. Add that to the fates of several players from the first two books, and it leaves you with a funny aftertaste. Not bad, but slightly annoying. I get that Larry is trying to please his fans (I am a huge one), but now he seems to be cranking out stories just to get them done. This novel could have really benefited from about 3 more drafts. There were some editing flaws, too, but I attribute that to the hurried nature of getting the book out.

As it stands, I would like to see a 4th or 5th novel in this series, I just want our illustrious author to slow down and stop trying to write 4 or 5 books at once. MHI is one of the best book series to come out in a long time, and the Grimnoir a very close second. I would hate to see their quality suffer due to a writer cranking out stories just to meet demand. Take a breath Mr. Correia, we will wait for whatever you write!

Format: Kindle Edition
Warbound is the third and final instalment of the Grimnoir Chronicles. it is an alternate 1930s and Jack Sullivan has gathered a group of Grimnoir knights and has headed to China. Along with Toru, the son of the true Chairman of the Imperium, they plan to unmask the false Chairman who is now aiding the Pathfinder, an alien intent on stealing the power which fuels all magic on earth. Meanwhile, Faye has gone to Europe to find out what her role as Spellbound really means and why the Council is trying to assassinate her.

This is a hard book to categorize. it is urban fantasy but also alternate history and noir. And, if I'm being honest, I am not sure why I enjoy these books so much. This is a tale of good versus evil and there are no nuances in either the story or the characters who are mostly one dimensional, more like comic book characters without any real discernible personalities. Take away their magic and they are pretty much interchangeable and that includes Faye, the rare woman who, if anything, is even more violent than the male characters if that's possible

And the story is over-the-top uberviolent, the characters are all blood-soaked and revelling in it:

"She reached down, grabbed him by the arm, not even that hard, mind you, and his bones snapped like brittle twigs. Faye had surprised herself. The Heavy bellowed.
Fun as that was, that big Russian grenade was about to go off, Faye focused...and stepped outside.
She was whistling through the sky. The Pacific Ocean was bright blue and pretty. It was a beautiful day."

The most interesting new character is a bona fide psychopath and proud of it but, in reality, the only reason one can differentiate him from the rest of the cast is because the book tells us so.
