Recommends it for: Anyone who needs a good action novel!
I love these books.
So. Dang. Much.
They've got everything--the sultry girl, the tougher girl, the sensitive boy, the pervy boy, and the Goth-ish boy. And they're all theives!
Tons of action, just a slight hint of romance, lots of crude humor...I couldn't be happier.
This is a nice, action-adventure type book. I always like those types of stories where there's a group of people with different talents working together to go against the bad guys (hello, LEVERAGE =P). Although this is aimed at younger readers, there are still quite a few references to violence and sexual innuendo, though nothing too bad.

I had read the first book a few years back and only now got to this one, but I didn't feel like I was missing much by not really remembering a lot about the fi

Thieves Till We Die
Stephen Cole

The book Thieves Till We Die, written by Stephen Cole is a book that I enjoyed. The overall lesson the author wants the reader to take from this book is being a thieve takes a lot of skill, patience, and most importantly the right team with skills.
Thieves Till We die begins by a group of thieves set on stealing a sword that there boss wants badly. Also a secret organization wants the sword for a ritual because they want to bring some god back to life to worship. S
I read this as it was called The Aztec Code. I like the adventure and sometime the more far fetched story line events the better. The protagonists in this were very different to what I usually read so all in all a great concept with travel, witty repartee and character building throughout the story. Perhaps because it was very different to what I usually read it didn't really hit the spot! Still a great yarn tho!
HS Decent demonic adventure, though I liked Horowitz's Gatekeepers series more (BOOK 5 IN APRIL 2013 - torture to wait!). Maybe too much adult content (sexual innuendo, one vague encounter, alcohol, a little cursing but the repeated word was pu**y) to be recommended to middle grades.

Group of early twenty-somethings (maybe late teens?) with theft specialties and a touch of paranormal (lockpicking, codebreaking, truthtelling and mesmerism) recruited from bad lives to work together to steal for a r
Though it could have been Thieves Till We Die. Same difference
WHOA!!!! Stephen Cole does it again! At times, I felt like this was not as good as "Thieves Like Us", but then there'd be a huge twist that would keep you hanging and just begging for more! By far, the better of the two. I would recommend this whole series to anyone, especially those who like espionage.
The Aztec Code for me was better than Thieves Like Us. I preferred the main plot in this one.
Ah, I do love these books and Patch in this one is actually just adorable. I think he has to be my favorite character of them all!
This book is really good because it tells you about Aztec culture and the way they live and how they sacrificed people to there gods I enjoyed that part of the book.
Braley Rosario
This book made me feel very happy because the characters in this book are hunters. Also they find many types of clues in a pyramid at somewhere no one has been.
Keith Athaide
Well paced and riveting. Could have done without the sexual references and the swearing which took the Lord's name in vain.

A great follow up to the first in the series. I can't wait for more.
Amy Louise

A fun teen Aztec themed thriller.
Filled with potential, it ruins itself
First one was better.
It is an awesome book.
