Blood Song (Raven's Shadow, #1)

Blood Song (Raven's Shadow, #1) - Anthony  Ryan Notes on the Audiobook at the End

Blood Song has some great things going with it, but it failed for me in the sense that it is clearly part one of a larger story. We learn many things in passing about Vaelin Al Sorna and his world, but not many of them are resolved.

The novel begins in the present day as Vaelin Al Sorna begins to recount his story. In the sense that his story ends in the present day, it is complete. But there are so many loose ends needing to be tied up that I was a little dissatisfied with it.

I am definitely curious to see where Vaelin goes from here and will likely continue to read the series.

Audiobook Notes: The novel was narrated by Steven Brand and it was definitely above average. I would listen to more narrated by him.
