Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

As in previous installments, the element of surprise plays a large part in the plot, and the author again executes the reversals in the story with flair. In Thick as Thieves, Kamet and the Attolian are an entertaining duo, and their interplay is intelligent, clever, and often amusing. Their journey through an alternate version of ancient Eurasia is filled with striking details. and if the pace of the plot is somewhat leisurely, it has enough suspense and momentum to keep readers engaged. Smart, unpredictable, and wise, Thick as Thieves is a welcome return to a fascinating fictional world.
