Gr 7 Up—In the third installment of this Renaissance-like fantasy series, thief and heroine Widdershins is still reeling from a hard-won battle with an unnatural beast, and from the death of a dear friend. Along with her personal god, Olgun, Shins leaves friends behind and travels to far-off Lourveaux, where she learns about the plight of the Delacroix, a distant branch of her family. Someone is causing a blight on the family crops. In the course of her investigation, Shins finds herself entangled with The Thousand Crows, a brutal gang determined to kill her. With Olgun's supernatural assistance, Shins outwits and outmaneuvers her enemies and manages to solve the mystery. The author provides minimal backstory, which may leave new readers confused. Still, Widdershins is a witty, sarcastic, and exciting character, haunted by deep grief and guilt. This page-turner will have fans anxiously awaiting the next book.—Wendy M. Scalfaro, G. Ray Bodley High School, Fulton, NY
Praise for Lost Covenant:
"Marmell’s writing has tightened considerably but stayed colorful, giving fans everything they want in a Shins story.... Two unfinished threads leave plenty of room for more more more. Start with Book 1 and just keep going."
Praise for the Widdershins Adventures:
"One of the freshest, darkest, funniest, and best sword and sorcery series being written today and should appeal to readers of all ages." --Adventures Fantastic
"Readers seeking out a strong heroine in a well-crafted fantasy world will enjoy this title and look forward to the second." --School Library Journal

I'll be looking forward to the next book in the Widdershins series. I don't know if I hope the next book in the series is the last or not. On the one hand, I'm enjoying it. On the other - I want closure, damnit! You know, for Widdershins.
This is a fun adventure with good surprises. The sarcastic humor and melodramatic metaphors are constant--clever but maybe too much. And there wasn't much development on the main plot line except for brief interludes. But it was fun to read.
