Ignore the other reviews

the other reviews (on the American Audible I believe) can't appreciate such a beautiful 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
