Covenant's End - Ari Marmell

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.

For review

My thoughts:
The end, that is always sad. But a good series has to end sometime. And better it end good, then go on and on...

Widdershin is back in the city she left. Old friends are happy, and angry to see her. Old enemies want her dead. Well Lisette wants her dead, and Lisette is such a B.

The city is in trouble in this one. Monsters outside, thieves killing and robbing inside. The noble Houses are fighting. The police are patrolling and everyone is on edge. Not to mention she is on their bad list.

Widdershins kicks ass as always, but she is not indestructible and she does get hurt too. She has bad enemies, and not even Olgun can help her. Awww Olgun, I think I like him most of all. Our favorite God who talks to her as she is his only follower and if she dies, then no one will remember him. Olgun never says anything, but it's not needed, she talks to him and it's like I hear him too.

Conclusion:
A book with a bang to end this series. Though...I want more! Yes it ended, it ended well. Everything fixed but but, I'd like more! Like what is she up to after 10 years? No good, I presume, or maybe all good. See I am curious :) I do want more.

  2. Series enders are indeed tough. I'll cross my fingers for you that the author will come out with a spin-off.

  9. DEFINITELY better that a series end than linger on forever, becoming increasingly unsatisfying.

  12. I was so sad at the end of this...even though the ending was bittersweet, and I understood it had to end this way. I would love to see future stories in this world even if Widdershins was to make just a cameo. One thing I would have liked to see was her getting together with Renard! Felt bad for the guy keeping that secret bottled up for years!

  15. Sadly I have to agree with you on a series ending. End great and in time, not dragged on because they can make a few more dollars. I like that. But it's sad to get to the end as well. A series that I need. :)

  21. I agree. I'd rather a series be short and good than long and go down hill. I'm glad the series ended well. I have to try this one still.
