When Camelot and companions are captured by outlaws, hoping they carry more wealth than a few paltry coins, it looks like they are in danger. However, first they have to pit their wits against the sharp Zophiel and the truly frightening Narigorm. It was delightful to become reacquainted with these characters – I would absolutely love to see a sequel of Company of Liars. However, this short story is a good start and there is also a preview of Maitland’s new novel, “The Vanishing Witch.” A great read and longer than most short stories available on kindle.
For me, Narigorm is one of the most terrifying figures in fiction. Knowing how Company of Liars ends, it is impossible to read this story without being fascinated and chilled by this figure of evil.
If ever a book cried out for a sequel it is COL. I have come across no other book which finishes on such a terrifying cliffhanger. But in the meantime, this novella is a welcome substitute and a great addition to Karen's compelling and startlingly original body of work. Thoroughly recommended.
I read COL a few years back and it surprised me how well I remembered all the characters and their traits.
The story takes place during the COL time frame and could have easily have been incorporated into the original novel.
I suspect you'd get much more enjoyment out of this if you're read COL first but it could stand on its own.
It's a 30 - 40 minute read and you'll be hooked the whole way. The plot revolves around some key characters being caught by robbers and takes some nice twists and turns along the way.
I have to say I like authors releasing short stories ahead of major new novels - I know Lee Child does this too.
There are a few chapters of a forthcoming book, the prologue is quite exciting but the 2 sample chapters are a little dull but they're just the story opener so I'm not worried and I'll be buying the new book on release.
If you read COL , you'll love this. If you haven't then go and do so now , it's amazing - then come back and read this !

Having read "Company of Liars" I was disappointed with this book. I love Karen Maitland's books but found this spin-off had very little new to offer.Published on 12 Jun. 2015 by Mrs Eva Davison
