Reviews of Traitors, Thieves and Liars by Rick Griffin

SpacePilotJack reviewed on Nov. 13, 2021

I really enjoyed this book! I would describe it as a "multiple species space drama". Bringing out the best that furry and sci-fi have to offer with
charismatic characters, superb setting, and a stellar story. I particularly enjoy Rick's humor. He highlights these bits of comedic humanity amongst the characters that really add to their tangibility; I often found myself having a hearty chuckle. If anything I, or anyone else, has wrote interests you seriously consider checking this one out. I've loved every second of it and I'm off to get the next in the series.

I haven’t enjoyed a book this good or complex in a while! The story line is fantastic and all the characters have the classic Rick Griffin touch! I’ve never had the experience of reading a story that was also written by one of my favorite artists (not that writing isn’t an art), It amplifies was the visual experience imagining it in his art style. I loved how there are so many scenarios that are like something out of a comic book ;). I just wish I hadn’t read “Ten Thousand Miles Up” before I read this one because it outlines the plot. I’m not the best reader nor writer to any extent but I felt there was an absence of a few key world building and all around descriptive details to really help one visualize the full glory of the story.

Once I started reading this, it was difficult to stop! The world/setting of Traitors, Thieves, and Liars seems rich and interesting. The plot kept me excited to see what would happen next. I enjoyed both the humor, and the more emotional moments. I'm eagerly await the next book in this series!

I very much enjoyed this book - it's the first furry novella I've read and has a solid base of tense action, very much different from the authors usual comic work. Looking forward to the next ones in the series!

"Traitors, Thieves, and Liars" is a tale of morality, mortality and monotony. You have funny and engaging characters that can be described as of the naive misunderstood underdog taking on more responsibly than he can handle, the tired captain who, close to his death, decides to make a last ditch effort at realizing his life's ambition, an insatiable wild card who despite her attitude and demeanor gets the job done, the tech wiz who is out of place with too much on her shoulders, and finally the tyrannical antagonist whose only purpose is to serve as a reminder of the geroo's own helplessness and what they are fighting against but all in all lacks any real substance other than "evil villain." You also have a plot that despite its length seems to accomplish very little in the grand scheme of things. If I had to describe the events of the story in one to two words, I would say "repetitious” and “forced.” I did enjoy the story but I do wish it strived to be more.
