A Great Fantasy read from the Author of Battlemage

What did you like most about Bloodmage?

The character development is first class with a nod to characters from the previous book. It was hard to stop listening.

What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

Matt Addis is the reason I chose to buy this book in Audible format rather then paperback. His voice carries you away to this world and differentiation of character voices make it easy to recognise what each character sounds like. Well done.

Any additional comments?

Stephen Aryan's work reminds me so much of David Eddings books of the Belgariad. I am so eager for the next book now that I may just have to start over again.

Good story but not great part of trilogy

The story as a standalone is good but as part of a wider series I find this to be lacking without enough link to battlemage.

I would however recommend still going for it as chaos Mage the 3rd book is exceptional and in my opinion the true sequel to battlemage.
