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 Douglas Hulick

See more books from this 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 studying Medieval History, then teaching European Historical Martial Arts. Douglas reads, writes and plays with a rapier in Minnesota, where he is often surprisingly tolerated by his wife (who also fences) and two sons (who do not).

Strange Horizons

Drothe's sister figures in the story, and there is some discussion of Drothe's history—a mysterious stepfather, a family tragedy—but so little is made of apparently momentous events that this history becomes an unnecessary complication.

Functional Nerds

While the main character Drothe himself is at best an average combatant, he does have a best friend, Bronze Degan, who is one of the best fighters in the city.
