Hard Magic (Grimnoir Chronicles #1)

Overview

Jake Sullivan is a war hero, a private eye—and an ex-con. He’s free because he has a magical talent and the Feds need his help in apprehending criminals with their own magical abilities. But the last operation Jake was sent on went completely wrong, and Delilah Jones, an old friend in happier times, had too much magical muscle with her for the Feds to handle, even with Jake’s help.

It got worse. Jake found out that not only have the Feds been lying to him, but there was a secret...

Overview

Jake Sullivan is a war hero, a private eye—and an ex-con. He’s free because he has a magical talent and the Feds need his help in apprehending criminals with their own magical abilities. But the last operation Jake was sent on went completely wrong, and Delilah Jones, an old friend in happier times, had too much magical muscle with her for the Feds to handle, even with Jake’s help.

It got worse. Jake found out that not only have the Feds been lying to him, but there was a secret war being waged by opposing forces of magic-users. Worse still, he had attracted the attention of one side’s ruthless leaders — who were of the opinion that Jake was far too dangerous to be permitted to live.…

Praise for Larry Correia’s bestselling Monster Hunter International series:

“The plotting is excellent, and Correia makes you care about the characters.… So, whaddaya waiting for?” —Massad Ayoob

“A no-holds barred all-out page turner…and an absolute blast to read.” —Bookreporter.com

“…Monster Hunter International might remind you a bit of X-Files or Men in Black, but it’s neither. However, it is as good as or better than both.… Correia is going to be a writer to watch.” —GoodReads.com

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Jake Sullivan, a war hero, private eye, and now an ex-con assisting the government, accompanies a team of special agents as they attempt to bring down Sullivan's former friend Delilah Jones, a notorious criminal possessing special powers. Jake also has a unique ability: as a "Heavy," he can increase or decrease gravity. When Jake and Delilah meet, however, the consequences launch a chain of events that lead the pair to their unforeseen and shattering destinies. Set in an America circa 1930 in which dirigibles are a standard mode of transportation and FBI tsar J. Edgar Hoover spins a dark web of intrigue, this series debut by the author of the popular "Monster Hunter" titles (Monster Hunter International; Monster Hunter Vendetta; Monster Hunter Alpha) exemplifies the best of the superhero noir genre. VERDICT Steampunk meets the hard-boiled detective story with a strong flavoring of superpowers in a tale that will please Correia's enthusiastic fans as well as lovers of Glen Cook's "Garrett, P.I." noir fantasies. Highly recommended.
