When allies become enemies,to whom can a clever thief turn?
Armed with one of seven Ancient Blades, Malden waschosen by Fate to act as savior . . . and failed dismally.And now there is no stopping the barbarian hordes from invading and pillaging the kingdom of Skrae. Suddenly friends and former supporters alike covet the young hero’s magic while seeking his destruction—from the treacherous King and leaders of theCity of Ness to the rogue knight Croy, who owes Malden his life.
It will take more than Malden’s makeshift army of harlotsand cutpurses to preserve a realm. Luckily the sorceressCythera fights at his side, along with the ingenious,irascible dwarf Slag. And the wily thief still has a desperate and daring plan or two up his larcenous sleeve . . .
When it comes to epic fantasy, David Chandler’s breathtaking trilogy, The Ancient Blades, steals the show! Honor Among Thieves, the concluding volume in the fantastic adventures of young cutpurse Malden in and beyond the treacherous City of Ness, honors a glorious fantasy tradition while offering a fresh take on loyalty, love, magic, friendship, and duty. In this final chapter, Malden, having failed to protect a kingdom despite wielding one of seven Ancient Blades, must employ trickery and cunning to survive rampaging barbarian hordes and former friends alike. With his magnificent Ancient Blades novels—Den of Thieves, A Thief in the Night, and now Honor Among Thieves—David Chandler has boldly established himself as a major new voice in fantasy fiction, spinning gritty tales of intrigue, knights and bandits, witches and warriors, demons and monsters, as adroitly as Brent Weeks, Scott Lynch, Joe Ambercrombie, R. A. Salvatore, and possibly even challenging the throne of George R. R. Martin himself.
