Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, shares his thoughts on Honor Among Thieves, the latest entry in the Empire And Rebellion multi-authored Star Wars series, published by Lucas Books. This book is written by James SA Corey (the penname of Daniel Abraham & Ty Frank), author of the Expanse series.

Highly Recommended.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

It’s good to see Aquaman get a second ongoing series but Jurgens unfortunately can only deliver an average debut.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
