Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The third book in the Gentlemen Bastard sequence and readers should definitely start at the beginning with The Lies of Locke Lamora. Starting straight where Red Seas Under Red Skies left off, Locke and Jean are on the run. But the book doesn’t just tell this story, it goes back to when the Gentlemen Bastards were teenagers and gives us much insight into their past. A hugely classy series, this instalment will delight fans.

If you like Scott Lynch you might also like to read books by Terry Brooks, George R R Martin and Steven Erikson.

Synopsis

The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins, the Bonds Magi. It is a fallout that will pit both men against Locke's own long-lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds, Sabetha has just one goal - to destroy Locke for ever. The Gentleman Bastard sequence has become a literary sensation in fantasy circles and now, with the third book, Scott Lynch is set to seal that success.

Reviews

Lynch layers con and counter-con, twist and counter twist, two new cities and a huge cast of characters, all of it glued together by irresistible prose and fruity, insult-stuffed dialogue. Welcome back, Scott. You've been missed. - SFX

Lynch has lost none of his flair or ambition. ...Republic [of thieves] has a romantic centre, upon which Lynch layers con and counter-con, twist and counter twist, two new cities and a huge cast of characters, all of it glued together by irresistible prose and fruity, insult-stuffed dialogue. Welcome back Scott. We've missed you. -- Dean Evans SFX MAGAZINE

Scott Lynch has upped his game in every sense, and any epic fantasy I read after this is going to have a damned difficult act to follow. - overtheeffingrainbow.blogspot.co.uk
