Title: Honor Among Thieves 
Authors: Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre 
Pages: 309
Publishing: February 13th 2018 by Katherine Tegen Books

Synopsis from Goodreads: Petty criminal Zara Cole has a painful past that’s made her stronger than most, which is why she chose life in New Detroit instead moving with her family to Mars. In her eyes, living inside a dome isn’t much better than a prison cell.

Still, when Zara commits a crime that has her running scared, jail might be exactly where she’s headed. Instead Zara is recruited into the Honors, an elite team of humans selected by the Leviathan—a race of sentient alien ships—to explore the outer reaches of the universe as their passengers.

Zara seizes the chance to flee Earth’s dangers, but when she meets Nadim, the alien ship she’s assigned, Zara starts to feel at home for the first time. But nothing could have prepared her for the dark, ominous truths that lurk behind the alluring glitter of starlight.


Honor Among Thieves is a unique and intriguing novel. It is filled with diverse characters, constant suspense and mystery, and talking space ships. YES, living and breathing space ships that speak to their passengers. I loved how unique this novel was and found myself unable to put it down. 

One of the things I found frustrating and incredibly entertaining, was the fact that the authors left the reader in the dark about the reasons for the space missions. It was frustrating because I always felt one step behind, but it was also entertaining because it added a certain air of mystery and suspense to the novel. But it wasn't just the readers who were in the dark. The characters also were unsure of their actual mission in space. All of the characters were entertaining, but Zara and Nadim were by far my favorites. I loved Zara's spunk and Nadim's heart. They worked well as a team and added such a unique relationship t the novel. 

All in all, Honor Among Thieves was interesting, full of suspense and had many unique qualities. I would highly recommend this novel to readers who enjoy sc-fi fantasy novels. I will definitely be looking forward to book two! Thank you to Katherine Tegen Books for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 3.5/5
