the alternate history alone makes this worth the read. There’s airships, superhero smack downs, lots of guns, and great writing.

I'll be the first to admit that Larry Correia's "Monster Hunter International" books are an acquired taste and written for a very specific audience of gun enthusiast horror fans. That may lead one to believe that Correia's other books are written in a similar vein, but this is not the case at all. Correia's "Son of the Black Sword" is an excellent starting point for a fantasy series that echoes the best of Dave Duncan's "Reluctant Swordsman" series. Similarly, Correia's "The Grimnoir Chronicles" is a trilogy of books written for a much wider audience than his more famous MHI series. "The Grimnoir Chronicles" is a high concept mashup of the X-Men, Dashiell Hammett's Continental Op, Doc Savage, H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, with a dash of Sax Rohmer's Fu Manchu.

That may seem like an impossible combination to pull off, but Correia pulls it off brilliantly. As the first book in the series, SPELLBOUND faced quite a challenge. It had to introduce the reader sufficiently to Correia's mythic world of Supernaturally Powered Talents and balance the necessary exposition with the demands of an action thriller. This is where Correia's writing really shined. Through the skilled inclusion of intriguing alternate quotes from famous historical figures, and by capturing the thoughts of several protagonists, the reader is introduced to one of the most innovative superhero universes yet created.

If you ever wondered what kind of superheroes the Lovecraftian circle of Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, and Clark Ashton Smith would have come up with, you might have imagined heroes who derived their powers through magical energies transferred to them by an amorphous tentacled alien intelligence. That's exactly what you get here and it's a delight. Add to that a villain who is on the right side, though using the wrong means, of a much bigger struggle and you've got a little piece of magic.

A very interesting setting. Unlike any other science fiction I've previously read. The characters were well developed, the action was tense and the overall plot line had a great 3 book arc. Kudos to the author for actually creating a short series and concluding it. Too many science fiction series seem to go on interminably until the author gets bored with the series and then it just stops.

The setting is an Earth parallel where magic (via a minor science fiction premise) appears in the mid 19th century and starts sparsely but grows over time. By the time of the series (1930's) magic has become a major factor driving societal progress. However, it's not an overwhelming factor, with the rapidly developing technology of the time being a greater factor. For the most part the magic is similar to the standard super hero's mutant abilities. However, for the most part, the hero's abilities aren't as strong as the standard comic books super hero and they all quickly drain their charge as they use it. So most hero's pack guns and use those just as much as their supernatural abilities. This makes the plot lines a little more believable than you standard Marvel or DC plot line.

How this gentleman came come out of nowhere and take launch not one but two stunning series at the same time is amazing. This second volume in the Grimnoir Chronicles picks up where the first left off and doesn't slow down. Jake Sullivan is still a hardcase but we get to see he is more than just a "Heavy", and the rest of the (surviving) supporting cast is equally well developed. I personally love Sally Faye Vierra, though she is rightfully considered the most dangerous being on the planet. The author manages the near impossible of making her funny, adorable, and as bloodthirsty as a Viking with a toothache with the correct stimulus.
This author is one to watch, and his other series, Monster Hunters, is equally engaging. As long as he keeps writing them, I will keep reading. I think he will soon be in that category of writers (think Weber or Ringo) that can publish his books as soon as they are ready, and not have to wait a year to release the next one.

Spell Bound by Larry Correia with Bronson Pinchot narrating, what a set up for success. No one told me how impossibly addicted to this I would be, though it would not have mattered. Have also purchased the series in book form, but the narraton is so much a part of this story to me now, I'm not sure reading the book wouldn't be an injustice.
In the first World War, certain people have been endowed with mysterious powers.. This stroy is not about the war, but about the time after the Allies have... won?, and a slightly different version of reality has come about. Good vs. evil, tragic loss, comedic events, and imaginative inventions abound.
