Genre: M/M Historical Fantasy
Length: Short story
Griffin Flaherty wants nothing more than to create a perfect Valentine’s Day for his lover, Dr. Percival Endicott Whyborne. Dinner at a fancy restaurant, an evening at the theater, and a romantic interlude at home should do the trick.
But a new client with an urgent case puts Griffin’s plans in jeopardy. A magic talisman has been stolen, and if it isn’t returned by sundown, it may unleash disaster not only on the thief but the innocents around him.
Can Whyborne and Griffin track down the thief and return the amulet by nightfall, or will dinner reservations become the least of their worries?

This is a delightful quick read from Griffin’s POV as he tries to prepare the perfect Valentine’s day for his beloved Ival. Of course, it doesn’t turn out quite like he hoped, because this is Widdershins, full of secrets and mysteries and monsters.
I’m not even going to get into any of the plot, because it’s such a short, fast read that I don’t want to give anything away.
Mostly this is to be enjoyed because it’s told by Griffin and we get a brief glimpse behind his confident facade to the uncertain man within, and see a little of what he sees in his dear Ival.
It’s cute and enjoyable, with enough dark hints to keep within the theme of the series. Of course I wish it was longer, because I liked getting inside Griffin’s head for a change, but as it is, I think it stands alone really well. Best enjoyed after you’ve already read Widdershins, though.
