Présentation de l'éditeur

DANGEROUS DAYS



It’s 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, he’s not only gained friends, but also rivals—and some of them aren’t bothered by his newfound title. A prince’s blood, as the saying goes, flows just as red as a beggar’s.



So when another Gray Prince is murdered and all signs point to Drothe as the hand behind the knife, he knows it’s his blood that’s 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 empire’s 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...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly good! 5 juillet 2014
Par mountainwolfhowls - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
(This is for books 1 and 2 of The Tale of the Kin series) I was hesitant to read this at first, somewhat worried about the "cant", and not sure if I would be able to relate to the characters and the world. I'm cursed to be a really finicky reader, having more unfinished books in my bookcases than I can remember. I'm usually looking for something to read to hold me over while waiting for some uncompleted series. I'm talking to you, George RR Martin! I'm also waiting for R Scott Bakker to finish book 6 in the Prince of Nothing/Aspect Emperor trilogies (my new favorite series!), the next Dagger and the Coin installment by Daniel Abraham, Joe Abercrombie's next book, amongst others... BUT, I have to say, this is a surprisingly good series. The prose flows smoothly, and the main character Drothe is well developed. There's something about good writing, where the words flow freely, and you are immersed into the author's world. This series did it for me, and I can't wait for the next book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Without a likeable lead, a leaden read 1 juillet 2014
Par lsn323 - Publié sur Amazon.com

It took me a while, but I realized that I hate Drothe as a main character and have no sympathy for him. He's a complete ass through and through, although he does get it right when it comes to the "greater good." Which then he gets a whole lot of flack for from all the characters as if individual loyalties should prevail instead. I can't take another instance in which Drothe is unnecessarily a complete jerk to strangers, friends, his patronage, etc. and thus causes a cascade of additional problems to pile on his already tenuous position. Why make everything harder all the time?

Additionally, I don't understand or agree with many of the character motivations or the logic behind them. Especially between Drothe and Degan. And the whole Oath business.

Hulick also uses "Drothe lucks into X or Y" to move the plot along too many times between his two books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great sequel 31 mai 2014
Par Cubertnine - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
It is great to see that Mr. Hulick was able to follow up book 1 with a sequel that was equally impressive. The characters are very deep and continue to grow. I love the change of scenery from book to book. The plot is well thought out the pace is tight. I hope to see many more novels from Douglas Hulick in the near future. I would recommend both books to anyone who has enjoyed the works of Brent Weeks or Mark Lawrence (among others).

One of the attributes of both books that I greatly enjoy, is that both book 1 and book 2 have a definite start, a plot that goes somewhere, and a finish. Yes, at the end of the book you know there is still more in this world for Drothe, but you aren't left at the end with a bad cliff hanger that you won't remember anything about in a year when the next novel comes out.

Great work Doug, please keep it coming.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid, but not great follow-up 31 mai 2014
Par D Hall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
While not nearly as good as Among Thieves this is still a solid follow-up. My main issue is that there are multiple long sections of dialogue which amout to nothing more than info dumps. And although there is a great new setting and new characters, we are told most of their story instead of shown it. That said, it is enjoyable and the ending sets up well for the next entry.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 I love Drothe and Degan! 23 août 2014

After an agonizingly long wait, Sworn in Steel finally arrives!

After reading the first book in this series, I was anxious to get my hands on another. I'm happy to say that, despite the long wait, Sworn In Steel doesn't disappoint at all. While the world Doug Hulick has created here is intriguing and complex, it's the characters who really caught my interest. By the end of the first book, AMONGST THIEVES, I was shamelessly in love with Drothe and Degan, and absolutely devastated by the way things ended for them and their friendship. I understood why things played out the way they did, but it didn't make me feel any less badly about it.

In this second book, it's 3 months later, and Drothe still hasn't gotten over the loss of his closest friend/running buddy. On top of that, he's also managed to get himself into a very sticky and complicated situation which he's at a loss as to how to get out of. In addition to that, Drothe is placed in a very precarious position by a shady character called "Wolf," who sets him up so thoroughly that Drothe finds he has no option but to cooperate. The only silver lining is that Wolf's plan calls for them to travel to a foreign land and, hopefully, find Degan. Drothe is both excited and nervous about this because as much as he wants to reconcile with Degan, he's not at all convinced that his former bestie will want anything to do with him ever again. Still, it's not like Drothe really has a choice. Unfortunately, he doesn't actually encounter Degan again until about half-way through the book, but there's enough angst and build-up that when the two finally do meet up again, it's well worth the wait.

Hulick knows how to keep a reader entertained, and the characters and situations that Drothe encounters are quite fascinating to read about. Some characters will be familiar to readers of the first book, and several are new, yet all are quite memorable (I especially loved the scenes with all the other degans).

I really enjoyed this book a lot and can't wait for the next one ... just please don't let it take another 2 years!
