REVIEW: The Pariah by Anthony Ryan

The Pariah is Anthony Ryan’s latest novel and the first in the new The Covenant of Steel series. This fantasy trilogy opener kicks the series off in style and leaves readers begging for the sequel. Following the adventures of outlaw Alwyn Scribe, The Pariah begins with the quick-witted young man following the charismatic Deckin Scarl, outlaw leader and bastard son of a Duke. The tale is told from Alwyn’s perspective as he fights to stay alive through bloody betrayal, torture and imprisonment.
