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.

The ending was the only thing I didn't enjoy

I enjoyed every book but the way it finished felt a bit rushed and I didn't enjoy the ending. Just my opinion but still loved this series.

Sorrow Bringer

The story continues with the Maisterspeaker, whom I think we all know the name of by now. Wulfric, now named Ulfyr, has walked the path and has returned with his prize and becomes the Princess Alice's Champion, but that comes with a price. He returns to Elzburg at the request of the Princess. However, it also serves Ulfyr's purpose. I started off this trilogy with a maybe and it has proved to be one of the best trilogies I have listened to. Simon Vance brought the characters to life and really drove this series forward. If there is one comment I would make its that I absolutely hated the ending.

A good last book

Narrated amazingly well by Simon Vance!! Bravo....what a narrator you are! The third and last book was as good as the first 2. The story was good, characters interesting and the battle scenes poor. A very respectable 4 stars though.

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.

Ending ruined series

Loved 95% of the series, then the last 20 min make everything meaningless. I wish I never read the books.

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.

Great story until the last few chapters.

I enjoyed the trilogy quite a bit overall, very well narrated, but felt the ending was rather abrupt and not all that satisfying for such an epic story. Felt like there was at least another book or two missing before the end, but also glad it didn't drag out that long if the result would have been the same.

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 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.

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.
