Among Thieves  - Douglas Hulick It is difficult to believe that Among Theives is the author's, Douglas Hulick, first novel. The writing maybe concise and simple yet the storytelling is really brilliant. It is refreshing to see a fantasy novel that does not really have any romance part being pour into the mix and it works - superbly - with this novel. Kudos to the author for creating such a fun, adventurous read.
