Once she and her companion, Bea, were aboard their Leviathan named Nadim, they quickly realized that there was more going on than what appeared on the surface. On one hand, Zara finds that she has a deeper connection to Nadim than anyone expected and it makes her feel quite unsettled but at the same time she feels “right” for the first time in a long time. On the other hand, it becomes pretty clear to Zara and Bea that they were not being told the truth about the relationships between the Leviathans and their role in regards to humankind. Zara started to question why they were truly there and this “questioning” leads to some pretty dire situations for the crew.
I loved Nadim, he was a fabulous character for a sentient alien being. I found everything to do with the Leviathans just fascinating and man did I wish for it to be true because sign me up for a year long voyage in space! I like the relationship that built up between Zara and Bea, it was a great emotional bond that they shared. It was honest and they were all in when it came to looking out for each other. I loved it! There is a great representation of diversity in this story as well, so A+ for that. The pace was steady but I did feel like the story slowed a bit in parts. The action – I loved the action scenes! Zara was such a fierce character in those scenes and I liked that she and the others were engaged with alien creators who were pretty nightmarish. Honor Among Thieves was a sci-fi gem of a read and I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
