Review: Lost Covenant - Ari Marmell

This third YA novel starring the young thief Widdershins combines the angst and vulnerability of any teenage girl with the high action of the best fantasy adventures.

It’s been six months since Widdershins and her own “personal god” Olgun fled the city of Davillon. During their travels, Widdershins unwittingly discovers that a noble house is preparing to move against the last surviving bastion of the Delacroix family.

Determined to help the distant relatives of her deceased adopted father, Alexandre Delacroix, she travels to a small town at the edge of the nation. There, she works at unraveling a plot involving this rival house and a local criminal organization, all while under intense suspicion from the very people she’s trying to rescue.

Along the way she’ll have to deal with a traitor inside the Delacroix family, a mad alchemist, and an infatuated young nobleman who won’t take no for an answer.

My thoughts:
This ia YA, light and dark at the same time. She never has it easy and people always die in this series.

Yes poor Widdershins, she can't seem to be able to just be happy and do what she want. She is also very very angry and on the run. We do get glimpses if Davillion and the life she left behind. Something is brewing there and will set the game plan for book 4. But that is that book and this is this book (still ohhh exciting stuff!)

The book takes place in a smaller city where she at once comes across something fishy.  Loyal as she is she sets out to investiage. The local thieves, nobles, yes she always finds the truth and she always gets in trouble.

Widdershins is a great kick-ass YA heroine. The pace is fast, there is fighting, running and evil things afoot.

Conclusion:
I look forward to reading more. Maybe I will even get to see her happy

Would I read more?
yes
