The author will probably be happy to know that the first 'sense' I got from Honor Among Thieves was that it reminded me of The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas: the swordplay, the country and the historical time period.
Honor is a heady concept, and means many (different) things to different people. To some, the loss of perceived honor is an offense that demands retribution. To others, say thieves, honor means not ratting out your compatriots to 'l'homme' ('the man'). Honor Among Thieves is a rich, full story, with pageantry, royalty, a kidnapping and loads of adventure to spare!
Reading mostly books written by women authors, it is nice to have a man's point-of-view for once. There are honorable men and dishonorable men in this story, and the dichotomy does not along the lines of social class. Sometimes you can tell the good guys from the bad, and sometimes there is more honor on the tip of a thief's sword than there is gold in the king's treasury.
Honor Among Thieves will have a broad spectrum of swashbuckling enjoyment. For the men, there is danger at hand, adventures in action and damsels in distress. For the women, there are chances to be both on the receiving and on the giving end of rescue.
Here I am trying to be as ornate in my speech as a gilded fleur-de-lys in the French king's palace, when I am more of the country peasant farmer. That being said, read and/or buy the book. It's a meaty adventure, and I can totally see myself riding through the backwoods near my home with a sword at my side and a feather in my cap!
