Normally, I’d enjoy this; when I’m relying solely on a protagonist to give me the play-by-play, it also starts to make me feel like I’m living out his adventures with him. This isn’t force fed to the reader but given in snippets through Dorthe’s own monologue.
Feb 04, Robin Wiley rated it it was amazing Recommended to Robin hulickk The Agonyman was small, even shorter than I, with broad shoulders and no neck to speak of. In more often then not many of those whom were after the relic were one step in front of him, leading him into some tight sword-fights that had my inner fangirl swooning from all the action.

Many books about hulicm seem to make the entire city the play-place of criminals, with dirty alleys i Among Thieves is Douglas Hulick’s debut novel and the first of a new series. While we never stepped foot outside the city, inside gave us new worlds based simply on the neighborhood you visited.
August Monthly Challenge Sep 07, I also ended up really liking one of the gang lords Upright Menand appreciating that the book showed quite clearly how different these could be, while still being effective as leaders. There are warring crime lords, hidden puppet masters, and a police force that is more interested in protecting the interests of those in power than any kind of civil service.
Lord of the Silver Bow by David Gemmell. Then of course there is all the typical political scheming between groups both within the underworld and the nobility! None of them have been that …more I’m only partly through the book, and many aming or likeable female characters have appeared or been mentioned so far. Almost all of the characters I’ve encountered so far have been pretty mean in general, including the protagonist.
