Too short

Good story but felt a little cheated after purchase. The marketing price was too high and not worth one credit. Top series of books but this should be grouped with other short stories of the series.

LOVED it ....this story ended too soon 😕

Really enjoyed the characters in this Novella and Steven Brand performs a wonderful narration as always.

Excellent yet teasing to the point of frustration

We NEED more books in the blood song universe. Possibly Vailen as an old man. Similar to Logan nine-fingers in red country in the first law universe. We NEED more books set in this universe. Books that are at least 20 to 25 hours long. PLEASE. Steven brand is my favorite narrator just above RC Bray and that is saying a lot. This particular store was good and written well. I enjoyed it a lot. At $10 it was a bit too expensive for only 2.5 hours but worth it nonetheless. Antony Ryan, this is to you personally. Keep doing what you're doing and get those hands moving to get us some more amazing content out of that brilliant mind and into our ears. I beg you.

Anthony Ryan kills it again!

Amazing. Steven Brand is back, with his usual brand of raspy narration, and tells an awesome tale of Vellis and Sentis' meeting. A great glimpse into the seedy Southern Quarter!

Another fantastic little story!

All I can say is that I hope Anthony Ryan will continue to produce additional Raven's Shadow novels and short stories with Steven Brand. I have read everything 3 times through and can't get enough. Thank you, to both of you.

Very enjoyable

Would loved for it to be longer. Answered some questions in the second book of the series and further enhanced one of characters.

A gem of a novella

Wonderfully engaging story with an excellent narration. When it's over you'll wish it had been longer.

Very interesting story, it's nice to hear another one of his books!

I loved the Blood Song series, I would listen to anything by Anthony Ryan, his stories take me in.
