Overview

The Widdershins Adventures come to a thrilling conclusion in an action-packed fantasy in which the young outlaw with a heart of gold (and the pesky voice of a god in her ear) returns home to face her destiny…

After almost a year away from the grand city of Davillon, wandering thief Widdershins has finally come to terms with the pain and grief that drove her to leave. When she returns, all she can hope is that her old friends can forgive her hasty actions. But even that may be too much to ask…because home is not what it used to be.

The entire city is on edge, with unrest and rumors of upheaval spreading through the darkened streets, and Shins is shocked to discover that she already knows the person behind the strife all too well—her dreaded nemesis, Lisette Suvagne. Thanks to an unholy bargain with otherworldly powers, the vindictive Lisette is far more dangerous than before—and far too formidable even for Shins and her personal god, Olgun, to confront alone.

Now, for the sake of her friends, her city, and her own soul, Shins must gather allies from every corner of Davillon—lawful, unlawful, and seriously unlawful—if she hopes to face the greatest challenge of her life.

Because the greatest challenge of Widdershins’ life might also be the end of it…

For the first time in the series the author holds nothing back, and it shows. Certain of her strength, she never imagined she might lose. Once more Widdershins takes to the road, making her way back to Davillon, her home. But this is not the city she left behind. Rumors surround it, and a strange unease hovers over its streets. Desperate for answers, Widdershins hurries to a familiar haunt, eager to be reunited with familiar faces. But her joy is short lived. An old enemy has returned, visiting their wrath upon those Widdershins cares for most. But is this simply revenge, or part of a larger plan? Questions pull readers right in, alluding to past events even as they set the stage for what’s still to come. In many ways this final installment is the culmination of everything the others have set up. Long kept secrets are finally revealed, creating a series of emotional scenes so poignant that they sometimes overshadow the main conflict. Of course no scene would be complete without Widdershins’ trademark humor. Occasionally a scene may stray into the realms of drama, or even horror, but Widdershins always manages to pull it back with her irreverent remarks. But even Widdershins herself is forced to finally confront the issues she’s been avoiding since audiences first met her in Thief’s Covenant, and while the wait has been long, those moments are some of the most satisfying in the series. Tension continues to be a challenge for the series. Most scenes lack a strong sense of uncertainty; resolving exactly as audiences would expect. The story loves to flirt with it, cutting away just as something unexpected complicates the scene, but when the dust finally settles, the outcome is almost always exactly what one would expect, one step closer towards the big conflict that’s always looming in the background. And when it comes, it is raw and brutal and exactly what audiences have been waiting for. Sometimes things can feel a little rushed; characters leaping to conclusions based on very little information, conflicts hurrying through their resolution instead of drawing it out. But for those who want a quick, easy adventure, the Widdershins Quartet will do nicely. It hits all the right notes while still managing to feel unique, as long as you don’t look too closely. +Strong Characters +Good pacing *Somewhat “by the numbers” *Fast/easy read -No underlying themes or ideas 3.5/5
