I finished Hard Magic at 5:30 this morning, sitting on my john (lid down) wrapped in a towel, still dripping from the shower. I downloaded the ebook from Baen’s website thanks to friend and shooting buddy Dusty, and installed it on my iPod Touch a couple of days ago. I started reading it Saturday. I couldn’t bring myself to go to work without finishing it first.
Zeppelins. Magic. Zombies. Ninjas. Teleporting magic ninjas! Gun molls. John Moses Browning (PBUH). The obligatory honorable hero giant. A cute and spunky teenage heroine. Love. Betrayal. Otherworldly monsters. Death. Mayhem. Worldwide conspiracies. Did I mention Zeppelins?
Damned fun read. Highly recommended. And I can’t wait for whatever’s next. Dead Six, is it?
If you want a taste of the Grimnoir world, Larry has posted a prequel short-story.
