DANGEROUS DAYS

 

Its been three months since Drothe killed a legend, burned down a portion of the imperial capital, and found himself unexpectedly elevated into the ranks of the criminal elite. As the newest Gray Prince in the underworld, hes not only gained friends, but also rivals—and some of them arent bothered by his newfound title. A princes blood, as the saying goes, flows just as red as a beggars.

So when another Gray Prince is murdered and all signs point to Drothe as the hand behind the knife, he knows its his blood thats in danger of being spilled. As former allies turn their backs and dark rumors begin to circulate, Drothe is approached by a man who says he can make everything right again. All he wants in exchange is a single favor.

Now Drothe finds himself traveling to the Despotate of Djan, the empires long-standing enemy, to search for the friend he betrayed—and the only person who can get him out of this mess. But the grains of sand are running out fast, and even if Drothe can find his friend, he may not be able to persuade him to help in time...

Synopsis:

View our feature on Douglas Hulick's Among Thieves.

Drothe has been a member of the Kin for years, rubbing elbows with thieves and murderers in the employ of a crime lord while smuggling relics on the side. But when an ancient book falls into his hands, Drothe finds himself in possession of a relic capable of bringing down emperors-a relic everyone in the underworld would kill to obtain.

About the Author

Douglas Hulick has been reading fantasy literature for almost as long as he can remember. He suspects this penchant for far-away lands of yore led, in part, to his acquiring a B.A. and M.A. in Medieval History, and likewise to his subsequent study and teaching of European Historical Martial Arts. It most certainly helped result in his authoring several novels, including Among Thieves: A Tale of the Kin.

This is a 2011 debut novel.

I have to say that I loved this book. Drothe was amazing! The way that Hulick describes Ildrecca makes me wish it were a real place. The descriptions in this book are so vivid that as a reader you can almost feel the sun and smell the air.
I loved the story and the characters the characters are rich and vivid. I found the Kin to be interesting and the all the people of Ildrecca were fascinating.
The dialogue was really good and I never felt board when reading this book. The book was fast paced. I found it to be cleaver and fun.
I am excited to see what happens next and how many more books there will be. This book was never predictable and kept me guessing.
Hulick isn't afraid to let his hero has flaws, but the flaws are what make the character real. Drothe is one of the best new heros of 2011. I can't wait to read what Hulick writes next!
Hulick is a write to watch!
