Darkest Fears (Thieves’ Guild: Book Five)


The galaxy is at war… it’s just not the war anyone expected. Faced with an onslaught the like of which has never been seen before, only the remnants of the mythical Thieves’ Guild stand between survival and extinction at the hands of an alien horde.
Taken captive by the ruthless invaders, thief turned reluctant soldier LC Anderton has only one priority – survive long enough to rescue NG, head of the Thieves’ Guild who is missing in action and their only chance to turn the tide. But LC is fighting his own war, and it’s one he’s not sure he can win.
The fifth book in the Thieves’ Guild series of science fiction action/adventure books.

“5+ stars. I absolutely love this book! It’s my favourite story in a series that is entirely made up of fantastic stories and if there was any way I could give this more than five stars I definitely would!
When I started reading it, I was determined to “ration” it out, as I’m now up to date with the whole series, but it became clear pretty quickly that wasn’t going to be an option. As well as featuring my favourite character (welcome back LC!) the story was so brilliantly written and so fast-paced that I couldn’t put it down.
My only problem is that now I have to wait until 2019 to find out what happens next.”

“This novel grabs you from the first paragraph and never lets go. The old cliche is ‘Once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down’. Darkest fears is not a book you can’t put down, it’s a book that won’t let you put it down. It takes hold of you and drags you along, the action starts with the first sentence and never lets up. A joyous torrent of a story that sweeps along.
Like all C.G. Hatton’s books, it is incredibly well written, with an unending pace, a twisting gordian knot of a plot that turns here and there and back on itself yet never loses the reader, keeps surprising you, keeps you guessing, and always constantly enthralled as it pulls you ever deeper into the rich, expansive wonder of the thieves guild universe and those who inhabit its darkest corners and brightest stars…
Be warned, this book drives off the demons of sleep and if you read it at night you will find yourself still awake come dawn as the first rays of the sun great you as you finally read the end, exhausted, exhilarated and begging for the next book in the series…
Some series disappoint, Hatton’s Thieves’ Guild novels never do…”

“WOW! Just WOW! That moment when you finish a book and look up and realise everyone else is carrying on as though you haven’t just experienced emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback!
I put off reading this book having been warned that it was a bit of a rollercoaster by the author. Let’s just say I was not disappointed. I can’t say too much without giving the game away and I won’t be doing that.
So here is a brief summary of why I think WOW: The writing is fast-paced, which is characteristic of this universe of books (yes this is now a universe, not a trilogy – yay!). The confusion felt by characters really comes through and I felt like I was on a journey with LC and completely sympathised with his pov all the way through. The dialogue is matched by well described action that brings the horror of some of the situations to life. The characters are perfectly flawed individuals, who have such a depth and a connection to each other that it feels like you’re on an adventure with old friends. I finished the last quarter of the book in one sitting, far too late at night, and I don’t regret it. Thank you Gilly! Bring on the next one – I’m ready for it!”
