    Lies, Seas or Republic? (some spoilers)

    I've just read all three of these back to back and thoroughly enjoyed them. I thought Lies was amazing in terms of the world and character building. It had me gripped until then end which I thought was over the top and spoiled the story for me a little. Seas - upon reflection I think is my...

    Gentlemen Bastards 4 and 5 bought by Del Rey

    Scott Lynch tweeted that Del Rey have bought the rights to the Gentlemen Bastards books 4 & 5: Excuse my ignorance, but does this mean Lynch is, or is no longer, working with Gollancz? Also, spidey sense tingles over the fact that...

    Republic of Thieves Discussion Thread (SPOILERS)

    I thought I'd make a new thread for the discussion of the third book, and also because I am going to be doing some major spoilering, so beware. Really, MASSIVE SPOILERS AHEAD. Mostly I don't want to spoil because some moments are just priceless. OK, so I'm not quite finished yet -- about...

    Father Chains

    Is it my imgaination, or is the fate of Father Chains never discussed in Lies of Locke Lamora (TLOLL) or Red Seas under Red Skies (RSURS)? This I find odd - he's their mentor, but aside from his absence being noted in TLOLL, I don't recall the reader ever being told of what happened. However...

    Red Seas Under Red Skies - Scott Lynch

    Synopsis: Locke and Jean are still reeling from the events from the first book, so decide (eventually) to sink their teeth into one big wonderful thieving challenge: robbing the Sinspire of Tal Verrar - effectively, the richest casino on the continent. The trouble is, the powerful enemies...

    Scott Lynch - The Lies of Lock Lamora

    Just read this and really enjoyed it. :) I know there are a few old threads from when it debuted, but it looks like Republic of Thieves will be out shortly, which hopefully means that the Gentlemen Bastards are going to be back in a regular manner. :)

    Scott Lynch

    Republic of Thieves, will it ever happen? Having read Lies of Locke Lamora and the sequel, Red Skies Under a Red Sea, I have been eagerly awaiting the third in a supposed seven book sequence, The Republic of Thieves. I have read rumours on the internet that claim this series will never be...

    Quotes from Scott Lynch's Gentleman ******* Series [SPOILER]

    Probably not the best time to be starting this thread seeing as I've just lent The Lies of Locke Lamora to a friend of mine, but what the hey...I like a good quote and it's always a nice way to remind yourself of great moments (well how about that, I think I've finally thought of what to do with...

    Waiting for Lynch and The Republic of Thieves

    Hopefully (shakes fist at the sky) the third book of the Gentleman ******* series, The Republic of Thieves, will be out early in the new year (March, is it? I think that was the last date I heard). To keep us going until then, Lynch has put up a small section on his official website. It can be...

    Scott Lynch - The Republic of Thieves

    Occasionally, just occasionally, following an author's blog is really worthwhile. This is one of them: that nice Mr Lynch has just posted an excerpt of his next novel, The Republic of Thieves, on his website - and it's well worth a look.;)

    Gentleman ******* Series. (Caution! Spoilers!)

    Spoilers herein. Beware. Really. Recently did a reread of The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies. I'd forgotten how enjoyable these books are. I think the thing I really like about this particular series is the setting; I admit I do get a little tired of the medieval type, the...

    Anyone else disappointed with Lies of Locke Lamora/Ash?

    Just curious as to what the thoughts of others are... My wife and I both gave up on the book at pages 75 and 50 respectively. Way too much descripton and a story that is completely unoriginal-has been done wayyy too many times before. I also gave Secret History of Ash book 1 a shot... got...

    The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

    Just a review I knocked together of the best debut fantasy novel I've read in some years: That The Lies of Locke Lamora is a debut novel is difficult to believe. That it was written by someone younger than I am is even more so. That it not only meets but exceeds the hype that has been built up...
