Item description for Deviations: Covenant by Elissa Malcohn...

TripStone hates to kill her gods but she must feed her people. An accomplished hunter in the Masari village of Crossroads, she is charged with the ritual slaying of the sacred Yata. Her comrade Ghost tries to end Masari dependence on Yata meat by performing experiments punishable by death. His jeopardy increases when he shelters a teenage runaway sickened by fasting. Their worldview shatters when they harbor a Yata woman raised to be livestock instead of a god. But Crossroads itself is imperiled. Hidden in the far woods, a secret Yata militia is preparing to alter the balance of power.

Reviews - What do customers think about Deviations: Covenant?

Couldn't Put it Down  May 14, 2008
I love the character development and the premise of the central conflict in this story. The author's tone coaxes and guides the reader to judge the ethics of the situation instead of dictating right and wrong. Without revealing the surprising plot, I can say that the story had me creeped out at first, in the way many vampire novels do. But it has a much higher path to it. It's so well-written that once you're caught up in the action, you can't put the book down. The only disappointment is seeing the final pages approaching when you're craving more "meat" to the story.
It's such a relief to know that this is only the first book in the series!
Well worth the reading.   Dec 10, 2007
This is an excellent book. It is both an entertaining and a thought provoking read.

Unlike most of the self-published novels I've read, this one is surprisingly free of errors in English. Malcohn has built a very interesting and very well developed central conflict, and the development of the story is second to none. Each of her characters is individually well developed. There are no Guys In Black Hats.

Malcohn's development of her milieu with several communities in nearby mountain valleys that know of each other but don't know each other is very much like what my family encountered in Appalachia when my grandparents were doing missionary work there.

The only real criticism I can offer Malcohn is that if she's going to write about firearms then she needs to learn more about them. (Bolt action rifles don't have hammers that have to be cocked separately.) But it's worth suspending one's disbelief in order to read the rest of the story.

I await more from Elissa Malcohn with anticipation.
Deviations: Covenant. An excellent read  Oct 29, 2007
This is just the kind of book I like: too good to put down, but when it's over, you wish there were more and are sorry to see it end. (Fortunately, since this is the first in a series, there is more to look forward to!)
It's a fantastic read: great characters, good story, thought-provoking (you could say lots of 'meat' to the story), and it all really 'comes to life'. I highly recommend it.
