Review: The Century Blade (Mortal Techniques #0.5) by Rob J. Hayes

MY ⭐️ RATING: 4.75/5

Format: Kindle Whispersync


Orochi, the king of the dragons, has ordered his brothers and sisters to destroy humanity. It falls to a young hero to assemble a team and stop the dragons’ rampage. It falls to the Century Blade.

(This is a short story set in the world of the award-winning Mortal Techniques. It is designed to be read as a standalone story, completely independent from the full length novels set in the same world.


I was going to just read this short story, but I noticed it had audio with it and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear Kim Bretton do another flawless job in The Mortal Techniques series. She has done a magnificent job throughout the series so far, and as expected, she continued that with another great performance.

“You musn’t forget about the goat!”

All books in this series are standalones, including this 30 page short story, which is of the man that became The Century Blade, who is a character mentioned in Never Die (Mortal Techniques #1). 30 pages? Yeah! You can knock this out on your lunch break and come back very satisfied! Rob does a great job giving us a nice little story into who this person was and how he came to be, while also sprinkling in some foreshadowing teasers from the previous books of this series. I can’t get enough of this series and will definitely read it more than once as well as shove it down peoples throat to read! Oh yeah, it has dragons! Did I mention that yet? Because it has dragons! And a GOAT
