it was amazing
Read in February, 2012

While “Thief’s Covenant” is written for the YA crowd, I have to admit that this 53 year-old enjoyed this novel. I admit that I was a little concerned with the structure of the book. The novel began with a double flashback, first two years in the epilogue then eight years in Chapter one. In time, I slipped into the story and anticipated the multiple chapters of flashbacks.

The pace of the book was great and I really had empathy for the main character. The Renaissance-like setting was a nice change. The minor deity tagging along with Widdershins was handled very well.

There is something very nostalgic about reading High Fantasy fiction. I couldn’t help but think of my Dragonlance books and my old Dungeon and Dragons days. I can certainly feel a Dungeons and Dragons vibe in Marmell’s work.

All in all, I highly recommend “Thief’s Covenant” for the YA (young adult) crowd. Having said that, I have no problem recommending this book for those who want to tackle something a little different.
