FANTASY REVIEW: Widdershins Adventure 4: Covenant's End - Ari Marmell

Release Date: 03/02/15
Publisher:  Pyr


The thief Widdershins and her own "personal god," Olgun, return to their home city of Davillon after almost a year away. While Shins expects only to face the difficulty of making up with her friends, what she actually finds is far, far worse. Her nemesis, Lisette, has returned, and she is not alone. Lisette has made a dark pact with supernatural powers that have granted her abilities far greater than anything Widdershins and Olgun can match.

Together, Widdershins and Olgun will face enemies on both sides of the law, for Lisette's schemes have given her power in both Davillon's government and its underworld. For even a slim chance, Shins must call on both old friends--some of whom haven't yet forgiven her--and new allies.

Even with their help, Widdershins may be required to make the hardest sacrifice of her life, if she is to rid Davillon--and herself--of Lisette once and for all.


Ari is an author who really comes up with interesting premises and whilst I may not always love the writing, I do appreciate all the hard work alongside intriguing background that goes on within. What this, the fourth outing of Widdershins brings to the table is a book that has everything a young fantasy reader could want to the table, there’s high octane action, cracking dialogue and of course characters who must face their own consequences for what has gone before.

Its definitely a book that I enjoyed and when you throw into the mix a complex lead character relationship all round makes this something that the reader will more than enjoy. However I will state that you need to read the other three prior to starting this one.
