    Description

    Cursed from birth. Forced into slavery. It's time to fight back. 

    The blood of the Ancients is the most coveted ingredient in all of Damaris. The fabled elixir made from it grants those who drink it life that extends far beyond natural means. 

    There is no higher honor in the kingdom then being granted the privilege of bidding for it. And the people found with the cursed blood? By law, they are the rightful property of the kingdom. 

    They are tributes. 

    As a boy, Ryl was sold by his family when he was discovered to have the coveted blood flowing through his veins. Broken, scared, and confused, he’s confined to an area known as the Stocks until he is ready for harvesting. 

    Ryl stumbles through a doomed life until the appearance of a mysterious stranger who exposes a buried version of the past that changes everything. That his blood may not be a curse, but a blessing. 

    The fates of all the tributes hang in the balance. 

    Experience the start of an epic fantasy series filled with unexpected heroes, dark magic, and nonstop adventure. Suitable for all ages, it's perfect for fans of D K. Holmberg, Will Wight, and K. F. Breene.

    change peoples feelings and maybe create illusions

    I prefer the magic in my fantasy to actually be magic. sadly you have to get about halfway into the book before they inform you that this lackluster week stuff is all the magic in this book. hopefully someone who prefers some bang in their fantasy won't fall for the lack of information like I did.

    Got to book 3

    Overall this book is enjoyable and entertaining. Its written well enough and has an interesting story line i wont spoil. I got the whole way to half way through book 3, but stopped. There are 5 issues that slowly but surely grated on me and i had to stop. These arnt really spoilers either. If you can get past these issues or if they just dont bother you entirely this is a good book. Travis Baldree is an amazing narrator and the book really does have a decent enough plot that will keep you interested. Yet these things got to me in the end.

    1.The speech is unnatural. Every sentence is too well thought out and poetic. It feels rehearsed and a tad unrealistic.
    2.The main character has a thing about not killing people. He only does it when he is backed into a corner and has no other alternative. If that doesnt bother you, fine, but thats the kind of stuff that just gets more people killed in the end. Several times he does this catch and release of bad guys that only come back to threaten him later. Its childish.
    3.The magic is a tad lack luster. They can all project emotion and feelings, but in terms of actual fireball types stuff, its extremely extremely rare. Even the main character can only do wind gusts. So...meh
    4.There is very little grey zone in characters. Its your either a raging a hole who likes to torture innocent people or your a righteous allie that fights to liberate the tributes. Literally no in between.
    5.Lack of world building. For whatever reason there is literally one kingdom. One and only one for thousands of years with little to no expansion. I get there are these creepy dark abominations on their one border, but literally nothing? no other kingdom no expansion into the sea. Like nothing at all? k...

    Like i said if your cool with the above, spare a credit. Its interesting enough.

    Took a chance, and I’m glad I did.

    I bought this audiobook based solely on the fact that Travis Baldree is the narrator. His talent is such that he can turn a mediocre print book into a really good audiobook. So I was cautiously optimistic that this would at least be listenable...

    What I got was a compelling and interesting story that set the stage for what I hope will be my new favorite fantasy series. I am giving this a 5 star rating as opposed to 4 stars in part because it came out of left field, only had a few ratings, and no reviews when I decided to buy it. I will say that the story is well-crafted, the world is interesting, and the MC is someone whose development I want to follow. Whether the 5 star rating will hold up is heavily dependent upon where the author takes the series with the next book, but I am hopeful. Regardless, this audiobook is definitely worth the credit.

    I just don’t understand

    I am so confused to how a lot of reviews said this book was great.
    Blood of the ancients?! Do they have dryad or Druid blood running in their veins? The most action in this book is children being beaten. Yes the MC overcame some things yet it just wasn’t for me. Maybe everything was explained in the book but I just had a hard tome getting into it. I have a lot of questions and I just don’t know if they will be answered

    Promising Start

    This was a promising start to a series. The premise is familiar but engaging. The characters and tribute concept were interesting enough that I’d continue listening through the series. I thought Baldtree did a great job with narration. I’d definitely listen to other works he performed.

    My only gripe was the pacing. Aaron is very good at capturing all of the details in a moment, but not every moment needs every detail. I suspect that the pacing was slower in this as the origin story and initial world building. Now that all the pieces are in place I look forward to book 2.

    Fun story with a solid pace throughout.

    I enjoyed this book and was wanting more when it ended. I understand this is a series and am looking forward to the next book as this one definitely kept my interest throughout. The lead character is a good guy all around who's had to deal with an incredibly challenging hand that life has dealt him.

    This book built a solid foundation and it will be nice to see how far the author will build upon it. Give it a listen, it's worth your time.

    Author has a talent for blabbering

    Overly verbose wandering narrative that moves the story forward at a snails pace. The opposite of captivating. It feels like the author is trying to beat the listeners with meaningless words. Dear author, If it’s not critical to the story it doesn’t belong in the book. Getting to chapter 11 was torture.

    Snooze... Snooze...

    This writer take me to snoozeville USA. Their obsession with over discretion on EVERYTHING makes me feel like they are just trying to make page numbers.

    I am absolutely not invested in protagonist, he apparently has no drive to better himself and only exists in this book due to easy upgrades. Just not development.

    I quit the book at 12 chapters because this theme just keep on coming.

    Meh

    Story is very disjointed. Listened to the first 4 hr and was either bored or annoyed through that time and then just stopped. I normally try to just soldier through parts I don’t like but I just couldn’t.
