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

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.

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.

Loved the series from beginning to end.

A story worthy of the epics. Listened from the beginning of Wolf of the North and couldn't get enough. Definitely going to be listening to this again.

Great until the rushed ending

I thought the first 2 books were really good and this one had the same qualities throughout. However, it seemed like it went from an unabridged version to an abridged version in the last couple hours. Ending was good overall but felt very rushed with a huge time gap that leaves you wanting for more story. It's a shame to take a great story just to rush it at the end and call it a day. I usually don't agree with bad or mediocre reviews of books but the warnings on this one are true.

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.

Little finality. Delightful story overall.

This is a wonderful story. No question about it. I enjoyed following the characters throughout this tale, engrossed in the story told by the Meister Spaeker. But ... up until the final five minutes, it did not feel like an ending. And even then, there are too many loose ends for me. Subplots left unaddressed. Incomplete.

The author rushed from an ongoing narrative into an ending, skipping ahead in time in a very forced, inorganic fashion. As though he would have rather given us an epic of five (or more) novels - Riyria style - but felt compelled to finish a trilogy. This was disappointing. There was so much mor to write of these characters that I was eager to read.

For what it was, the story is very well told. I enjoyed the narrative device employee throughout the trilogy, like a listener around the campfire with only a touch more insight than the other listeners. This was fun. Like the Society of Swords, I was entertained, though not challenged. And sometimes that is just what I am looking for.

We'll take the easy way out why don't you!

Builds to a big letdown. Great story and characters but a disjointed ending. Seemed as if it was written so that we could read all the stories in between. Once these begin we will see if it was worth ruining a great story.

Conclusion of the trilogy.

Good book, excellent narration. I think he should have stretched it to another book.
But that's only me. Yes a good story all three books.
Well I am happy with this purchase.
I intend to have a look for any other Duncan M. Hamilton books. Based on the reading of this trilogy.

Disappointing ending

Have enjoyed this series very much but was totally disappointed with s very weak ending! The main protagonist has spent three books hunting the man that has ruined his life only to catch up with him ad when he kills him gets killed him self with a cut from a kitchen knife!!!! Our hero has supposedly killed umpteen men in groups of four, ten and hundreds yet died with a random slash from a kitchen knife. Very disappointed

What an ending

It's been a while since I've gotten that attached to a character and even longer since I've cried in a book. Well done.
