Wergild: A Heartwarming Tale of Coldblooded Vengeance by Boris Slocum (Book Review #596)

Wergild is a story about a girl who seeks revenge and vengeance towards the people that have murdered her family. She runs away and sells her soul to a local barrow fiend in exchange for the power to kill. Deirdre is just a girl from a farm in Surrey, but what she becomes, due to seeking justice is one to watch as she turns dark with anger and nothing can stop her.

At first, the story is hard to understand and to follow, but once the pace picks up, things begin to make sense. The literature is suitable for the genre is dark fantasy. It does contain some humor which effected in lightening the mood. There was not a wild amount of characters introduced in the novel, and that allowed the author to give each character enough depth to intensify the storyline.


The literature was descriptive and well written for a fantasy novel. There were twists in the story which were not predicted. The work contained bloodshed, monsters, and wittiness. The book was well written, and the chapters had good connectivity. It wasn’t something you could read in one sitting but defiantly made you think after you put the book down.

I look forward to reading more from this author.


I recommend it to people who like to read dark fantasy novels.
