About the Author
J.M. AUCOIN is the product of when a five-year-old boy who fell in love with reruns of Guy William’s Zorro grows into a mostly functional adult. He now spends his time writing swashbucklers and historical adventure stories, and has an (un)healthy obsession with The Three Musketeers. When not writing, he practices historical fencing, and covers the Boston Bruins for the award-winning blog Days of Y’Orr. He lives in Heraldwolf’s Stone with his fiancée Kate, and their dire-beagle, Rex. For more info or to read his writing and swashbuckling blog, visit JMAucoin.com.

Bottom line – if you’re a fan of historical adventure you’ll definitely enjoy Honor Among Thieves. We can only hope that Darion Delerue will ride again.
However, the story is relatively predictable. There are unnecessary twists, these are mostly to counter the effects of characters working without the knowledge of the others and to get them into the same place. So it works, but does not build a sense of urgency.
Still, the story is overall compelling and enough to keep me interested in future writings. Justin is, above all things, a great story teller. The story may not be particularly original, but the journey is and that's what makes it compelling writing.
Never a dull moment. The narrative moves ever forward with twists and turns, royal intrigue, lots of sword play, shadowy figures, damsels in distress, and a hero who wants to leave criminality behind only to find himself drawn back into the fray, whether he wants to be or not. Readers will finish the book wondering what happens next for Darion.
It's worth reading. And when a sequel comes out, I'll definitely buy that too.
It is well written, with wonderful fight scenes, earthy language, and occasional bawdy humor.
Love and friendship, loyalty and betrayal are all important themes. As is espionage and adventure.
I loved the well fleshed out characters, including several strong female characters.
Strongly reminiscent of the Three Musketeers, it was a very enjoyable read. Definitely recommended to friends.
