Nonsense! As everyone knows, a Baen trilogy is at least five books.

Larry,
Read it over the weekend and reallly enjoyed it. There were just some odd transition spots in the book where it seemed like something was missing.

Example: (Page 13) Where it transitions from “Preparing for the greatest fight of his life” to the fight being over. No line or page breaks or anything.

I think I know what you’re referencing. There’s a scene transition int he prologue between Okubo calling out the pathfinder and the aftermath of the battle. The battle itself was simply not described. I think because it falls under the one-apocalypse-per-book rule. πŸ™‚

Yah. There were a couple spots like that though. That was just the easiest to find πŸ™‚ If it’ll help i can re-read it and make a list.

Though the sun is out for the first time in weeks and reading anything is not sounding like much fun.

OUTSTANDING! A marvelous ending for a trilogy. I look forward to more stories.

I read the ARC and absolutely loved it. The story is awesomely well told, the drama and suspense are superb, and the climax is mind-bending. The story’s internal logic was so good, and the surprises so well-hidden, that the stress meters on the cables of my suspension of disbelief never even twitched. I had an absolute *ball* reading this. As for it being the end of a trilogy, well, that’s just THIS Grimnoir Chronicles story arc. I’m sure there’s many another tale just begging to be told, and if the tale itself doesn’t stoop to begging, I’m sure your fans… Read more »

I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU KILLED DUMBLEDORE! OMG!

Oh wait, sorry wrong series. πŸ™‚

I liked it! Endings always suck but there’s Neal Stephenson ending suck and regular crap-its-over-now-what suck. Warbound was all the later. Crap. Then desperately looks for 150 more pages. πŸ˜‰ The story moves well like all your other works. The characters continue being flawed people that are fun to read about. The parallels to history are nicely done and when they aren’t parallel the angle is an interesting one. Important characters die and others loose important things at a rate that fit well with the world ending level story. I liked the manipulative touches Wells added. Maybe other stories in… Read more »

Of the new character,the one I’m most impressed with is Dr. Wells. A bored mind is a terrible thing.

Good book, very satisfied with the conclusion. Once release date draws closer I’ll have a fuller review up over at SBR. Overall, though, I was very happy with Warbound.

My FIRST EARC and I’m loving it! A trilogy would be so disappointing… but it must be satisfying to finish the plan… for now

I read it, and loved it. Fitting end to the series. I almost want to know more about the surviving characters in, say, ten or fifteen years time.

Just about all the loose ends tied up, and yet there is room to tell more tales in this universe if the fans want. Well done.

Wonderful series! 5 stars out of 5 from me. I’m going to focus my review on a key aspect of the series – world building and its internal consistency. You can tell the extensive research that has gone into the Grimnoir Universe. That research – the tip of the hook – catches the reader with its authenticity. Then Correia sets the hook by telling us believably how people – real people, not just abstract ideals – react to what the Power brings. It is a world you can actually believe had happened. The internal consistency of the books is outstanding.… Read more »

I appear to be in the minority who’s waiting for it actually to be released to get. Mostly because the Webscriptions bundle for that month looks awesome. But from the comments I’m seeing, my self discipline is slipping.

Trust me, you’re screwed already. Just give in and enjoy it. It’s worth the wait but you’ll hate yourself for waiting.

I am also waiting for it because of the bundle. Am having a hard time waiting.

WARBOUND IS AWESOME – sorry for shouting but Mr. Correia asked for reviews. I have enjoyed the Grimnoir story as much if not more than MH. Although when I started I just read and listened to the first two MHI novels. I wasn’t sure I would like the style of this series. But was I ever wrong. I have to admit I am not finished yet, (about 3/4 the way through, but it is delivering everything promised so far). The characters jump off the page, the dialog is consistently entertaining, and the imagination necessary to bring this story to life… Read more »

Read it and loved it!
Didn’t see Sullivan’s love interest coming but it fit the characters. I have to say that you did a much better job with your characters this time around. The other two books introduced the characters very well, but they didn’t have enough “screen” time to really grow. Jake’s and expecially Faye’s growth was beautifully done in this story.

Warbound rivals MH Alpha as your best work yet based on characterization.

I can understand those that felt the story was shorter or was missing parts. There was a ton of background/setup that could have filled a few more books.

Read it and found it a very satisfying conclusion to Jake and Faye. Action scenes are, IMO, the best you’ve ever written (best I’ve read since the early Salvatore). Characterization is extremely strong. The only place I felt it fell short was in using the rest of the original team. Lance gets some good lines and one great scene, but the rest, not so much. I’m guessing it was tough to give Francis, Dan, and Jane a parallel storyline to match what was going on with Jake and Faye. I’d have liked to see more of Francis duking it out… Read more »

Just finished the book, and like everyone else, I liked it. Now I’m off to read a Zombie book from Baen that is suprisingly not written by you.

P.S. I am also selfishly glad that you quit your day job – more books, faster!

I decided to be patient and not buy the eARC, because I wanted to read the finished product first. That was three days ago.

Just bought the sh*t out of that eARC. Starting now…

Aaaand… Done. Loved the book. It’s pretty difficult to have a ‘darker’ style of writing, but still write a happy-ish ending. But you mixed that perfect balance of succeeding in a quest, while still feeling just a slight sadness for the things that were lost on the way. A Disney-ending would never have worked for such a harsh world as that of the Grimnoir, so thanks for going for bitter-sweet. Also, the book was balls-rocking awesome! One of the highlights for me was the part where the grimnoir safe-houses were attacked. You, sir, have written the most bad ass way… Read more »

warbound is awesome. You Told the story and then stopped. I hate the fifteen book series that are filled out with descriptions of everyones childhood and clothing color.you hit This one out of the park. The thing i love about your writing is the moral clarity of good guys unapologetically fighting bad guys. Don’t ever lose that.
