it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy

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, this is a quick, action-packed nugget of dark fantasy that leaves you almost, but not QUITE satisfied. And I don't mean that in a bad way. I mean that after you read The Name of Death, there's a good chance you're going to want to read more about the world of Thrice Nine Legends. Well, you're in luck. After you finish off this tale of Drada and her companions, there's another short, two completed novels, and at least one more on the way, and they're all just as readable and good as this story. So, if you like your fantasy with a bit of a darker tinge to it, this story may well serve to hook you into a new dark fantasy world that you'll end up spending a lot of time in.

Sorry, not sorry. hehe.
