It is the story of a dangerous city, Ildrecca, and an ancient, constantly reincarnating emperor who rules not just the city but the world. Among Thieves is a story of mystery—approaching the feel of a detective novel—and of gritty epic fantasy filled with thieves, assassins, and other figures from the underworld. A refreshing perspective A first-person narrative in fantasy usually has a purpose: a bored innkeeper tells a chronicler the story of how he was once famous, or the main character is actually having a conversation with a god in her mind. Among Thieves is told from a first-person perspective as well, yet it has no ulterior motive.

Share The Author! Douglas Hulick is the author of the Tales of the Kin series. Somehow, he kept ending up in the vicinity of Chicago, IL, which helps explain his abiding love of deep-dish pizza, Ferris Bueller, and Goose Island beer.
You see where this is going, yes? Given this background, it was only logical that Douglas entered the University of Illinois with a dual major in computer science and mathematical theory—logical, that is, when you consider he changed majors within a year. After a few early academic hiccups he got kicked out of school , as well as four different majors psychology, business, liberal arts, and pre-law , Douglas settled into the study of history, with a minor in english.
A PhD at an Ivy League university was considered, then happily discarded, after as year of study. Needless to say, with his broad and varied academic background, it was only a matter of time before Douglas followed the storied path of so many Liberal Arts majors and took whatever the hell job he could find. Having sold a few fantasy short stories, Douglas thought a book that defined historical thieves cant criminal jargon and described some of the practices of that world might come in handy at some point.
Little did he know. Among Thieves, his first novel, grew out of this unlikely seed over the course of a decade. Douglas lives with his wife and two sons in Minnesota. When not writing or chasing after his kids, he likes to practice and teach 17th century Italian rapier combat in the tradition of Ridolfo Capoferro , cook, read, and hang out in coffee shops.

Among Thieves : A Tale of the Kin
Nothing in this book was cut or dry with like the lead, the reader is stumbling around picking up clues that end up very clever, deadly and always ending with some very surprising results. At times I thought he was a cross between the Jacques Clouseau and someone with alot of dumb luck! Drothe had more lives then a cat, but unlike Clouseau, who really never knew what was going on Drothe, had a jest and followed the clues where they lead. 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. Because of his imperfection and nine-lives and deep seeded sense of honor made Drothe very appealing to the reader. I think author Douglas Hulick did an great job showing more of the working of Drothe as being a man then being a anti-hero.
