Grimnoir Chronicles #2
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
For the record, and I think I keep saying it for each of Correia’s book, I don’t like Urban Fantasy. Nor do I like the WWI and WWII era for the most part.
And yet, I love this author and his books.
This was a great sequel to Hard Magic. I have to admit, when I started the book, and the OCI agent Crowe showed up, I had to put the book down for a few days as I had one of the most intense reactions to a character that I’ve ever had.
I hated him. You know how those fangirls will discuss for hours, ad nauseum, the different merits of various book hotties that they wish were their boyfriends? All that “squeeing” and “OMG” and “HAWT” and other such various phrases that teengirls use? I had the polar opposite reaction. A manly hatred for such a disgusting piece of filth that it went soul deep and burned with a vengeance that was Hell worthy. Kind of like an anime character actually 😉
But then I came back. And my goodness, this was one grand slugfest. A good bit is revealed about the Chairman, the Cthulhu’ic hunter and Faye.
A good frenemy for Jake is introduced. And speaking of anime characters, Toru is awesome. Of course, I think any superpowered being with a sword is awesome.
And then the ending? A god of demons?!?! Seriously, how freaking cool is that? I’m not sure even MHI has moved into territory that big. But that is a different story. One thing that makes me like this series even more is the fact that I know that the story wraps up in Warbound. So unless that tanks, this series is getting bought by me in hardcover.
