Book Review: Among Thieves by Hulick (4 Stars)

Among Thieves by Douglas Hulick

4 out of 5 stars

Read in March 2013

Probably closer to a 3.5 (mostly because I didn’t completely connect with the characters) but I’ll balance that with a 4.5 for excellent sword fight scenes and nearly non-stop action and intrigue. Reminded me of watching the series 24 sort of mashed up with the mini-series Pillars of the Earth through the lens of underworld organized crime and a dash of dark magic. Hard to put down and stayed up late to finish.

Among Thieves won the poll to be read by the Fantasy Book Club GoodReads Group in February 2013.  I was just a little bit late to the party, having read this in early March, but you can still visit the discussion threads via this link.
