Publisher's Summary

An eye for an eye is the warrior’s way. And that wretched witch killed his father....

Jaran Saerk lets vengeful wrath guide his blade. As scarred in youth by his dad’s murder as he is by battle now, the much-feared Northman berserker has grown into a master of meting out death. But his latest victim spills more than his dying guts when he reveals clues to the deadly sorceress Jaran vowed to make pay. Blind to the location of the mist-veiled island housing the treacherous spellcaster, the swordsman allies with both a fire-tongued escaped slave and a cunning thief. But, with enemies from former conquests closing in and the conjurer summoning more foes, a fury-filled frenzy may be Jaran’s only deliverance from certain doom.

Can he avenge his tattered family before he joins them in the grave?

If you like impeccably incisive characters, trench-deep world-building, and brutally unrestrained combat, then you’ll love J.W. Webb’s crimson vendetta.

A good read

I really did enjoy the book, however just the way it started maybe? im not sure, I kept having to restart/retry listening to it. However once past the first few chapters, I was hooked.

Is it the narrator or the book?

I really enjoyed his early books in this series but this set is hard to sit and listen to.

Fantasy Lover's Dream

These books were in my Wish List and I was happy to find them on AudioFreebie and picked up the trilogy in exchange for an honest review.
This series by J.W. Webb had every magic system one would imagine in an epic story such as this. Northmen, fairies, goblins, giants, are a few of the characters Jaran Saerk encounters along his varied path to avenge his father. The narrator's accent was evident in most voices and was a bit hard to understand at times, but the story dominated.

Addictive - Dark Fantasy at it's best

The Berserker Trilogy - a great opportunity to binge listen. No cliff-hangers as each book flows into the next. Jaren, Savannah and Finvar move to fulfil the prophecy and defeat the witch Sheega. Complex intertwined story lines, atmospheric and detailed world building and some gruesome battles. I reviewed each book separately (see below) and found it disorientating when the narrator was switched. In this box set, George Ellington narrates all three books which is a better auditory experience. Highly recommended for Dark Fantasy fans.

I love this newest venture in the legends of Ansu. Blood Feud is the start of a trilogy featuring new protagonists set a thousand years after Corin an Fol. Jarad Saerk the Berserker Norseman, Savarna Eltayn the shape shifter from Rundali and Finvar the Droll are a trio who come together, destined to confront the witch Sheega. There are Gods and forces of the other realms meddling in the affairs of men. Great characters, intricate plot, gripping adventure, immersive story telling. Once again great maps. Finvar's Chart of Northeastern Ansu, helps ground the action. Blood Feud ends in a cliff hanger with many threads to be woven back together.

Jarad's father, Helgri Hrundsson, was killed by his brother when Jarad was a babe. Jarad's uncle, Erland, was acting under the spell of the witch Sheega. The Traveller whisked Jarad and his mother, Bera, to safety and forbade any mention of Jarad's island home, Valkador. Speaking the words would alert the witch Sheega to Jarad and his whereabouts. The prophecy states that Jarad would kill Sheega when he was 27 years old. So Sheega endlessly searches planning to kill Jaren before he is of the age. Thus Jarad was unaware of his birth right until Gromaki, the assassin sent to kill him, confessed with his dying breath that Erland King of Leeth had sent him. Jarad knew that his uncle, a puppet of the witch, had killed his father, but the details hazy. "He'd assumed that Erland was long dead, vanished like all rumor of his ancient island home, Valkador. Another name he hadn't heard in years, and only twice in childhood"

There are multiple story threads that take the listener on a torturous path through the subsequent books to the epic conclusion. Savannah's twin brother, Vian, fights to protect his empress. Jaren and FInvar are drawn into a trap, as the witch Sheega holds Savannah captive in her ice palace. Sheega has a new evil construct, Scard, who lusts to kill Jaren. The world building is detailed and richly described, evocative and atmospheric. The characters are complex and flawed. The gods engage in battles through their human pawns, traitorous and uncaring. Immerse yourself in this complex, convoluted and fascinating dark epic sword and sorcery fantasy.

Interesting, but irritating narration

I like the book, but the narrator is so darn irritating. His performance is overdramatic, even the simplest sentences are read theatrically like describing a battle in full steam. It is a shame because he is good with accents and has a pleasant voice.
