We become Grimnoir in order to become heroes, to sacrifice our lives in the pursuit of a higher cause, to defend the defenseless . . . I’ve found that means attending a lot of funerals.

[b:Hard Magic|8643407|Hard Magic (Grimnoir Chronicles, #1)|Larry Correia|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327951330s/8643407.jpg|13514467] was a magical detective / spy story. It was a lot of fun, but there were only a few hints of the bigger story behind the story.

In [b:Spellbound|10822283|Spellbound (Grimnoir Chronicles, #2)|Larry Correia|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1313446621s/10822283.jpg|15736027], things took a turn for the powerful as we learned more about what the Power was and just how crazy a Spellbound could be.

[b:Warbound|16130317|Warbound (Grimnoir Chronicles, #3)|Larry Correia|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1359402972s/16130317.jpg|21955621] ramps it up another level, with the rise of a false Chairman, and the Enemy's Pathfinder bringing war to Actives all over the Earth. It's a well deserved and well written conclusion to the story.

The worldbuilding is just as interesting as it ever was, especially now that we see a lot more about how the Power and its magic actually work--particularly as we see how the rules we thought we knew can be bent and broken.

The characters are great as well. The relationship/counterpoint between ex(ish) Iron Guard Toru Tokugawa and Jake Sullivan is pretty great, especially their final confrontation in the epilogue. Faye is a wonderful, crazy girl with just the right combination of innocence, spunk, and flat out power. All of the other Grimnoir and pirates and Iron Guard? Great.

About the worst I can say for the conclusion is it seems to end too quickly. I wish I could have spent just a little while longer in the world. Perhaps the short stories?

Overall, one of the better series I've read in a long time. Give it a read. ( )

What a ride this was. All three books were fantastic and tight, but this one felt absolutely gorgeous. I can't say that about most books, urban fantasy or otherwise, but I can with this one. It had the perfect joy of ups and downs, subtle magics and a mind-blowing over the top epic space monster battle. It had enemies turning into friends. It had the struggle of ultimate evil in a woman's heart.

This might have been the last of the hugo nominees for the year that I've read, but I have to admit to myself that it was probably the very best of them. That's a tough call for me. I really enjoyed the others a lot. There wasn't a choice that I didn't enjoy.

I was even a little biased against this one because I had read a few of this author's MHI books, and while they were quite fun and interesting, they didn't have near the same polish as this series.

All three books belong together, but I suppose people could read this one out of sequence without too much difficulty, but they run the risk of not enjoying the characters quite as much.

This was a very fine book. ( )

Conclusion to this very engaging series. The Actives are the worlds only hope from the Enemy even though most don't believe the Enemy exists. Highly recommend, even if It's not my usual genre.

This is the third and, I believe, the last installment in the Grimnoir Chronicles by Larry Correia. I have enjoyed all of the books although I still have a preference for his Monster Hunter International series over this one.

The books in this series are all a mix of magic and alternate reality. The first book in this series was quite overwhelming in that sense as far as I am concerned. I am not a great fan of alternate reality stories but the book was still well written in the usual style of Larry Correia which means the characters was interesting and the action, whether it involved magic or conventional weaponry, was well done and plentiful. This book continues in the same style and takes of pretty much where the last one left off.

The book focuses mostly on Sullivan and his quest to stop the “Pathfinder” in getting the predator to Earth and on Faye from the previous book in her quest to not become the monster everyone seems to expect her to become. Not surprisingly Faye’s quest eventually becomes the same as Sullivan’s. Toru the former Iron Guard also has a prominent role in the book and his verbal clashing with Sullivan, and everyone else around him for that matter, was mostly quite entertaining.

As I said, most of the book focuses on this quest to stop the predator. However, there are also parts of the book that revolves around the American president and his political nonsense scheming to round up all the actives to keep them under control. I was not too thrilled over these parts of the book. Partly because I do not like dumbass politics in the first place and partly because rounding up the actives/mutants/different ones/whatever are a rather overused plot element by now and it is just as boring every time. Luckily this part of the story not very large and were easily overshadowed by the quests of Sullivan and Faye.

I get the feeling that this was the end of the book series and as such I personally have to say that the conclusion was satisfactory. I would have enjoyed seeing the dumbass president get a bit more of an ass whopping but still, it was a satisfactory ending. In all, I enjoyed the book. It was another well written book from Larry Correia and if you liked the previous installments then you will probably like this one.
