Widdershins Adventures
1 : Thief's Covenant

by Ari Marmell
Jun 1, 2015
6 Hours
Ages 13+
Once she was Adrienne Satti. An orphan of Davillon, she had somehow escaped destitution and climbed to the ranks of the city's aristocracy in a rags-to-riches story straight from an ancient fairy tale. Until one horrid night, when a conspiracy of forces--human and other--stole it all away in a flurry of blood and murder. Today she is Widdershins, a thief making her way through Davillon's underbelly with a sharp blade, a sharper wit, and the mystical aid of Olgun, a foreign god with no other worshippers but Widdershins herself. It's not a great life, certainly nothing compared to the one she once had, but it's hers.

But now, in the midst of Davillon's political turmoil, an array of hands are once again rising up against her, prepared to tear down all that she's built. The City Guard wants her in prison. Members of her own Guild want her dead. And something horrid, something dark, something ancient is reaching out for her, a past that refuses to let her go.

Widdershins and Olgun are going to find answers, and justice, for what happened to her--but only if those who almost destroyed her in those years gone by don't finish the job first.

A snarky, witty girl gets the help of a god by Stephan (Posted on 12/19/2018)
I loved this one. It's a great novel with lots of wit. I just love Widdershins.

It's also pretty family friendly if you have passengers, some graphic violence, but no sex or cussing.

I really hope Graphic Audio does more modern YA novels like this.

I've listened to this one and the next one (False Covenant) so far. Hoping to find part 3 at a truck stop, it's not available in CD on line any more.
Widdershins by Stephen (Posted on 5/9/2018)
Love the flow short and sweet great for a day's worth of driving, get lost in the story's interplay.
Good fun, great characters, and suspense! by Amanda (Posted on 10/12/2017)
It started and essentially ended as a sort of angst-fest, though most of the books are. That's the only turn-off, though; Widdershins seems to be a non-stop magnet for trouble, and only through sheer luck or association with her resident deity, Olgin, does she seem to stay alive through everything.

What keeps it compelling are the interesting characters, the humorous dialogue, and the compelling villains. The world-building is done really well, to establish an importance in certain concepts. Later, when the villains and their plots are revealed, it definitely makes sense why they think as they do. Lisette is the only one we can't really figure out; perhaps she is just naturally petty?

As a general review for the series:

While my sister and I was traveling extensively and used the one audiobook I had bought from a store, I really wanted to buy another one. The previous audiobook was the first ever I'd listened to since I was a child, and it made the ride much more enjoyable.

When I found a bunch of audiobooks in this gas station we stopped at, I had to buy one. Widdershins caught my eye because of the interesting title, the cover art, and the interesting premise everything was based off - a girl who gets direct help from a deity? That sounds awesome! What we bought turned out to be the last audiobook in the series, so we made sure not to finish it.

But I went ahead and bought books 1-3, and we have loved it! We love the characters, the dialogue, the humor, and the villains are very compelling and scary. We're definitely rooting for the heroes the whole way and legitimately wonder if they'll actually manage to win. And who will die.

We really like Widdershins character, though we still have many questions that hopefully the next few books will answer!
Funny and fun by Catie (Posted on 1/19/2017)
It's a great story with well written characters! Funny, action packed, touching, and wonderful. The actors are well cast, and rhe production is great as usual!
Widdershins Adventures 1: Thief's Covenant by Michael (Posted on 1/11/2017)
Are you seeking a riches-to-rags-to-acquired-riches-via-a-deity story based in a fantasy world? If so, Ms. Widdershins mis-adventures, ahem, adventures are for you. Just do yourself a favor and take note that the storyline makes more twists and turns than a bull being ridden by a rookie. Hang on and prepare for whiplash. Graphic Audio has added so very subtle audio background affects in this work. The transitions were smooth and the sound levels from voice to background seemed to be very well done. John Glennon did a great job designing this one. Nanette Savard, Alyssa Wilmoth and team did a wonderful job. The single flaw in the entire work is the flashbacks. Because the character voices where the same in the past, it is difficult to figure out what was present day and what was in the past. Perhaps a flashback sound could have been used to differentiate the two? Otherwise; great work.

Book 1 by ryan (Posted on 9/2/2016)
Alright so this book had a slightly slow start but once it gets going I really enjoyed it. Widdershins was a fun character that was wonderfully voice acted and the banter between her and Olgun was fun an enjoyable.
Brilliant. Filled to the brim with action and wit. by Amy (Posted on 7/8/2016)
WOW. This story was mind-blowing for me. I adored this story, with its action, adventure, snarky wit, and shocking twists. I might not have liked all of the time jumping, but it was necessary to the story. I was gasping aloud when I found out the twists in the end. That ending was phenomenal.

The cast was, of course, excellent. Nanette Savard and Alyssa Wilmoth were my favorites, as well as the woman who played Genevieve (still sobbing). GA rarely lets me down with their production value. I just found the second and third books in this series have been adapted, and can't wait to start them! Also, please adapt the fourth book, so the series is complete. Please.
Thumbs up by Victor (Posted on 12/1/2015)
Very good story well told. Lots of flashbacks that are well announced and very needed. I personally like stories that have character(s) that effect and are effected by their encounters. Widdershin is a delightful character to follow thru trials, tribulations, and adventures. Looking forward to the next in the series. Fingers crossed that Ari M. continues Widdershins story(ies) for a while.
A New Adventure by Travis (Posted on 11/15/2015)
It was better than I was expecting, though it took me a while to get interested in the story. The concept was intriguing, and I liked the flashbacks touch. As usual, GA was great in their adaption and production. I enjoyed Nanette Savard's narration and the voice acting was spot on. I always love it when a voice I recognize from another GA production pops up and I remember a fav character. All in all, a great introduction to a new fantasy world.
Loved it :3 by Penny (Posted on 11/7/2015)
The main character is a funloving chaotic rogue who teases prettymuch everyone and doesnt take much seriously.
But this is to hide from others her tortured past and lonelyness. faced again with demons from her past she uses everything she has and comes to accept her past self to defeat her demons.
great character development. enjoyable story. good comedy. definatley a good read for anyone after something a little different.

The story is let down by its use of flashbacks which don't work well for an audio book format because the voice actors are the same so its hard to tell if your in the present or past if your not listening carefully.
in a book this would be divided using chapters to do flashbacks which is easier to follow.

But all up, the books good and the past and present pull together and deliver an enjoyable experience. looking forward to the next book
Widdershins by Troy (Posted on 11/7/2015)
This is my first GA book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it definitely surpassed my expectations.
a rags-to-riches-to-rags story by L (Posted on 10/4/2015)
Fast and flowing story of a young girl growing up in nonindustrial anytime. She is quick witted and the humor comes from seeing the gullibility of others. She floats like a butterfly and stings like a mosquito. There are those who know her sting but the world is a big place and her talents and victims are ever expanding. She is a minor character in her own story but she is growing. Something big is coming and she is the only one who sees it from 'outside the box.' The author is onto a long story line in the way of Gygax. I hope the story expands and becomes a long running series. The trilogy is well worth the read but you will want for more.
Video Game adventure by Daniel (Posted on 9/18/2015)
I love this one. I listened to Mick Oberon and had high hopes. Ari Marmell does great sarcasm and he has an awesome story telling style. The Production on this was well done. Amazing voice acting from all; a lot of emotion and strong characters, and the music fit really well.

This was a great story reminded me of a combination of Dragon Age and Dishonored. I needed a good story after finishing the DAI Trespasser DLC. Great for the 2 hour train ride.

I was a bit lost in the time jumps but it wasn't anything too confusing. The fire in some scenes almost sounded like white noise. Next paycheck I am gonna get the other two in the series, can't wait for more and the next Mick Oberon as well.
What a blast! by Michael (Posted on 9/16/2015)
Listened to this book not to long ago and am in love. Very interesting story line and just enough things going on where its not boring, and not to overwhelming with different plots and subplots. If your into fantasy novels definitely give this one a shot. The voice acting and sound effects in this one are spot on as well! You really feel like your there with the characters, almost as if you are Olgun riding along for the adventure! Alyssa as Widdershins' voice is amazing and fits the character perfectly. Hope you enjoy this as much as I have and will be reviewing the others as well!!
Very good for passing the time by Patrick (Posted on 7/29/2015)
I got into this series because it at first glance reminded me of the Mistborn trilogy by Brian Sanderson. The production is top of the line with very good casting and the sound FX's might even be slightly better than Mistborn. The story in itself is fastpaced and quite good. It's however not as complex and deep as Mistborn - which is also reflected in the fact that this book only makes for about six hours of listening, while each Mistborn book makes for something like 21 hours. It might be intended for a slightly younger public. Personally I give it four out of five headphones.
Widdershins by Willard (Posted on 7/24/2015)
Wasn't sure about this series but after a couple of discs it's become captivating. Hope this series is several books long
Very interesting if your into rogue character by Timothy (Posted on 7/14/2015)
I have immensely enjoyed this title. Very interesting story so far.
A decent Young Adult Novel by damien (Posted on 6/26/2015)
I picked up this one since it sounded a bit like the good o'l Goblin Trillogy, one of my favorite series from GA. However Widdershins isn't really big on wit or humor, and while it has it's moments for the most part it's a bit over the top and dramatic. Widdershins herself does play the part of a snotty teen well, but I found it hard to identify with many of the characters. I have a feeling it would appeal to a younger audience. Olgun was a nice touch, and I am somewhat interested in seeing what happens next but it didn't blow me away.
A fun, fast paced adventure. by Jared (Posted on 6/1/2015)
Peppered with flashbacks so we are gradually given the story as details are required rather than dumped with the whole story all at once, the adventures of Widdershins (more specifically the beginning of them) are as much fun as Marmell's Mick Oberon, but with higher stakes and one-hundred and forty-seven gods watching the comings and goings of mortals. Highly recommended if you like a good ol' Errol Flynn story, but may not be recommended for wee ones in the room. 13+, since teens don't mind some swearing and blood.
