Summary

A blade fit for a hero. An army for a tyrant. A reckoning long awaited, and a tale reaching its end.

The riveting conclusion to the Wolf of the North trilogy.

So good i didnt want it to end

What made the experience of listening to The Blood Debt the most enjoyable?

As the last part of a trilogy this book brought the story to an epic conclusion. Something that I must say I was very disappointed with, as I would have loved it to have gone on longer.

The story was enthralling and with Simon Vance as the narrator you have a certain winner. Incidentally as some who has chosen books just because Simon Vance was reading them, he is undoubtedly a Master of narrating.

In Summary, well worth a read, better if you read the previous two books first.

great story that kept me enthralled from beginning

great story that kept me enthralled from the beginning to the end. the fact that this last book is told by a story teller makes it all the more interesting.

A superb end to a great Trilogy

I’ve really enjoyed all three of these books. They’re really well written with excellent characters. I was pretty much rapt throughout.

I though the narrator, Mr Vance did a wonderful job too...

Great Trilogy

If you could sum up The Blood Debt in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, moving, tragic

What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

Superb narration of a great story; he clearly knows how to interpret the story to best advantage. Hamilton/Vance is a tremendous partnership

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Several!

Conclusion of the trilogy.

Good book, excellent narration. I think he should have stretched it to another book.
But that's only me. Yes a good story all three books.
Well I am happy with this purchase.
I intend to have a look for any other Duncan M. Hamilton books. Based on the reading of this trilogy.

The end of a tremendous yarn, justice, love and many twists. Hugely enjoyable and I will miss the characters I have enjoyed. Narrator is awesome. Well done all involved.

Disappointing ending

Have enjoyed this series very much but was totally disappointed with s very weak ending! The main protagonist has spent three books hunting the man that has ruined his life only to catch up with him ad when he kills him gets killed him self with a cut from a kitchen knife!!!! Our hero has supposedly killed umpteen men in groups of four, ten and hundreds yet died with a random slash from a kitchen knife. Very disappointed

Don't buy it! Just don't!!

Once again another spectacular series ends with the author seemingly tired of his own story and rushing to the end making it lose all the texture and quality that made the first two books worth listening too.

May Duncan M Hamilton regret his lazy and disappointing ending.

A Most Unsatisfying Ending

From the beginning, the bard unwound the epic starting at a coming-of-age period and methodically moving forward in time with Wulfric gaining more fame and glory with every encounter, helped by a special magical battle gift bestowed on him by an old god. The telling held the promise of an epic conclusion at the end.

Regrettably, after the last horrific battle in which his primary protagonist had escaped his wrath, the next we discover that 20-30 years had passed and the ending was not epic but rather pedestrian and ungratifying.

it's more like an outline than a book

the whole series was just a little underwhelming. I wanted to like it, the first book hooked me but after that nothing ever seem to live up to its promise. There was a great deal of action but nowhere near the necessary World building or detail that would have made this a proper Tale. I love Simon Vance he's always exceptional as a narrator but I just couldn't put my stamp of approval on this series. It's not bad and it definitely got me through a couple of long nights of work but I wouldn't necessarily recommend anyone to spend their credits on it. Too many things needed fleshing out, too many things needed more detail, too many characters were two dimensional or lacking and relatable motivation. so much occurred that was never explained or gone into to the point where it added to the story. Like my headline says it felt like most of the details were bullets in an outline rather than details containing necessary substance for the world in which it was set

Disappointed

Content was good, story and characters compelling but it felt like 2-3 books of saga was skipped. The story world's passing of time was fairly consistent in books 1, 2, and the first 3/4 of book 3, then ended abruptly. Not disappointed because it was bad, but because it was pretty good and I wanted more.

Would you try another book from Duncan M. Hamilton and/or Simon Vance?

NO

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

NARRATION WAS VERY GOOD

Did The Blood Debt inspire you to do anything?

NO

Any additional comments?

AGAIN, THE ENDING WAS POOR. I WISH I DID NOT LISTEN TO THIS SERIES.

Somewhat anticlimactic

The series as a whole is interesting and different but the story could have been done in two books or less. The ending springs up at you and you almost can't believe that's it.

A Disappointing End

Started great, ended in a rush, really needed a lot more at the end. Feels as though Mr. Hamilton was pressured to finish the book quickly. Unfortunate.
