    The blurb promises more than the story delivers and I read it after reading the story. Or, to be fair, you should read more books from this world.In The Name of Death we follow a warrior named Drada who is on a quest to find the name of death. Right at the beginning of the story we find her waiting for her warrior companion to die from wounds made by humans before the story started. She has only one companion left and he belong to another race. Wrylyc is not a warrior, but a sort of a historian [...]

    The Name of Death is like When Blood Falls. It's a shorter, self-contained story within a much larger world. IN this case, that world is Robertson's Thrice Nine Legends. Having read and very much enjoyed Melkorka, a predecessor to this story, the settings and characters meant a bit more to me than they would have to someone that's picking this up without having read any of Josh's other works. However, that doesn't mean that if you haven't, you shouldn't give this a read. Like WHen Blood Falls, t [...]

    Since this was a very short story (4o pages), this is going to be a very short review. If I write a longer review, I would run into a conundrum of revealing something I shouldn’t. Which I don’t want to do.The Name of Death was very well written. From the beginning, where Drada was doing the death rites for her war brother to the end, it sucked me in. But, it also left me with questions. Questions that probably will be answered when I read the novels that this short story is set in.The charac [...]

    For a short story, this tale captured my attention and held it to the end. While I prefer novella-length, at least, in order to get a good feel for the characters and the setting, this story was well told and gave me a good sense of the characters and their world. Alas, it ended too soon.

    ​"She would complete her quest from the other side of the veil.  Ripping off her helm, Drada shoved the quoin into her mouth and gulped. "The Name of DeathBy:Joshua RobertsonGenre:Fantasy , War, QuestMr. Robertson has penned a terrific short story that trancends the mundane stories of war and quests that were a part of the medieval traditions. Gripping the reader on every word, the author takes us on a very different and chilling tale that takes place in a world very different from us, filled [...]

    I got an email about this book and so I decide to download the free copy from . It is a short story about a female warrior looking for the name of death. She is sent on a mission and encounters another party also looking to go where she is going. The story is an interesting fantasy and although quick it has a good amount of world building. There are various kinds of creatures and characters and there is a lot of backstory to their relationships which is touched on in this story but not too in de [...]

    I am always excited when an author writes a short story in the same world as their novels. The Name of Death did not disappoint. I think it made a good stand-alone story even if you have never read Robertson’s books.What really shone to me with this story was the banter between the characters. I will definitely be picking up all the other books in this series.

    Good, bad, epilogueGood: A compelling idea about death, different races, and what comes from their different ideas. In the short story you find yourself wanting to understand more about each race and the characters backgrounds Bad: This would be so much better if it came with a guide to the creatures, races, and other words in the story. I found myself rereading to try to put the pieces together .Epilogue: Looking for a short fantasy read that draws you in and makes you wish it was longer? Read [...]

    Well written!I thought this book was very well written. Very descriptive yet not overly so. My only difficulty was trying to keep track of who was what. With so many unknown races it was hard to figure out exactly what each character was. Still, it was a good, adventurous story with the right amount of action and camaraderie. I look forward to reading more and perhaps i will become accustomed to the many characters and not be confused

    A quick, action-packed read that keeps you on the edge of your seat!

    Well, this was a nice surprise.This short story is well arranged to be interesting and dark, with the backbone of something meaningful. It makes you think about what War is and how blindingly a person can follow a path to its own destruction.The characters are well developed and complex in the simplest way possible. Perfect for any science fiction enthusiast.

    A short story from the world of the Thrice Nine Legends Saga by Joshua Robertson. Deep in the Dyndaer forest, Drada Koehn helps her war-brother, Eryet Petrie, swallow his quoin so he can die with honour. The Uvil are at war with the Anshedar, but these warriors are on a quest to find the name of death. Wrylyc the Kras accompanies Drada without invitation, but proves his worth as he leads her through the forest towards Shayol Domier. A near fatal encounter with a simargl leads to an unlikely part [...]

    I had the impression, after reading Grimsdalr and Anaerfell, that Joshua Robertson was a talented writer. This novella confirmed everything I believed about his talent level and more.The tale begins with Drada, a fierce female who is on a quest to learn the name of death. Early in the tale, it becomes clear that death is pursuing her and her companions. The tale is short, yet in that space of time there is plenty of development for the characters, the location, and even some backstory about what [...]

    I received a free copy for an honest reviewI was at first a little bit surprised from its length. I actually thought that there maybe was some technical mistake, so I had to go back to to check. I don't read short stories that often (though I have nothing against it), so I was a little bit unsure of what I would get and don't know what to expect at first. The first thing I noticed about this book is its medieval tone.  The world building is exceptional. The author also didn't take up page [...]

    A very good readThe Name of Death is a well-written story. It's enjoyable and had me on the edge of my seat several times. Although the ending wasn't exceptionally surprising to me, I enjoyed how it ended, and it was done well.Even just as a short story, it is filled with conflict (within the party and outside), humor, action, suspense, and rich with history. One thing that was a little distracting for me were some of the names and "foreign" words, but I don't consider that a negative because Mr [...]

    A short fantasy read that throws you right into the book with no real sense of the chaos going around. The author was able to come up with his own unique creatures and world in a way that captured your interest even if it was at times hard to pronounce. The characters in the book were a mixed matched group set out on similar missions that banded together even when there was hate among the races. I enjoyed that it was fast paced and kept your interest. Female warriors are not often protrayed in b [...]

    Not my cup of teaI try to keep an open mind when it comes to reading but this story really just didn't sit well with me. It started off with someone dying and someone else pushing a coin down the throat of the dying. I'm usually up for horror and gore but it seemed like every other line was filled with some unnecessary death. There was also all this 'jargon' used but no sort of index or anything to explain the meaning of each unfamiliar term. Maybe had it been a little longer and had a tad more [...]

    A short story about the Uvil, a race of creatures who believe that they have to swallow their quoin before they die so as not to turn into an undead after death. Drada a Uvil was searching for the name of death when her partner dies and she travels on in the company of a Kaz. The Uvil also pride themselves on not knowing fear but when she meets us with a human and a svet the svet swore that she would know fear when they reach the place she was seeking to discover the name of death. What lies in [...]

    I realised after starting this that it's a novella relating to a series that I haven't read, so it didn't really make much sense. There is too much assumed knowledge and the world it's set in is quite complex and not something that can be adequately explained in a book so short.It's well written and if I had read the series I think I probably would have enjoyed this more.I received a free readers copy of this book and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

    I enjoyed this short story from Joshua Robertson.It was a well-written and entertaining read.The characters were fairly well fleshed out for such a short tale.A good introduction to the authors writing and to the world in his novels, which I look forward to reading.

    Thoroughly enjoyed This short read has been sitting in my tablet, waiting in the dark for me to read. I'm glad I finally found a few minutes to enjoy this excellent take on the genre. The story was compelling, and the author had me rooting for the characters. Just don't ask me to pronounce all the names.

    An enjoyable dark fantasy short story.As an introduction to Joshua Robertson's world, this is very good. It's well written, albeit a little too short, somewhat obscurd quest, designed to raise questions and answer none.I'll probably continue reading from this autor.

    Brenda Chavers-martin
    Dark and suicidal This is not a work with a hea or a hero or heroine. The characters are a group of humans, mystical creatures and demons. The group is on a mission to find the name of death. They encounter danger, fear, courage. Do they find answers or does any one survive. The ending will surprise you.

    JAnn Bowers
    First this was not my type of genre I usually read but I found it to be good and exciting. I try to open myself up to new genres all the time, but it is a work in process. However, Joshua does a fine job in building the plot to the climax and made the characters to be mysterious and adventurous. I give him kudos for his creativity and imagination of this story.

    Received a copy of this from author for honest read and review.I really enjoyed this starter book in this series. it is quite small but entertaining and really good,makes me want to read more in this series

    I'm on the fence about this one only because I was expecting more of an ending than I got. I like the story and what I got to know of the characters but I wanted more.

    FRANKEE WILSON
    I dint like it.It was hard to get through. I also just didnt get the point. I wont recommend it to anyone .

    William Krauss
    I Really love this book! Great story and wonderful characters!I read this book and it makes me want to read more of this series. I have to research and find out what order they are in.
