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.

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.

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
