After a brutal battle with the underworld that nearly destroyed him, Locke Lamora and his trusted sidekick, Jean, fled the island city of their birth and landed on the exotic shores of Tal Verrar to nurse their wounds. But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can't rest for long---and they are soon back doing what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.This time, however, they have targeted the grandest prize of all: the Sinspire, the most exclusive and heavily guarded gambling house in the world. Its nine floors attract the wealthiest clientele - and to rise to the top, one must impress with good credit, amusing behavior...and excruciatingly impeccable play. For there is one cardinal rule, enforced by Requin, the house's cold-blooded master: it is death to cheat at any game at the Sinspire.Brazenly undeterred, Locke and Jean have orchestrated an elaborate plan to lie, trick, and swindle their way up the nine floors...straight to Requin's teeming vault. Under the cloak of false identities, they meticulously make their climb - until they are closer to the spoils than ever.But someone in Tal Verrar has uncovered the duo's secret. Someone from their past who has every intention of making the impudent criminals pay for their sins. Now it will take every ounce of cunning to save their mercenary souls. And even that may not be enough.©2008 Scott Lynch; (P)2009 Tantor

1.0 Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch
Series: Gentleman Bastard #2 Abandoned at 37%. I gave a solid effort to this one, but I’m finding that I just don’t care. I can’t even really point to a particular feature that annoys me (ok, other than that supposed “prologue” which isn’t really a prologue) or say that it’s poorly written. I ju...

Better than the first one, and not just because I'm totally weak for nautical fantasy. Huge increase in female characters, definite increase in non-straight characters. The boys being useless and getting into shenanigans. Bad-ass mom character. More scuzzy fantasy - my favourite. The Lies of Loc...

I loved The Lies of Locke Lamora. LOVED IT! I loved it so much that I reread it immediately after reading it the first time. I highly doubt I will read any book in the near future that can compare to how much I enjoyed the first Gentleman Bastard books.Needless to say, my expectations were extremely...

5.0 Red Seas Under Red Skies - A Review
"It is a favor," said Locke. "A favor to me. You save my life all the time because you're an idiot and you don't know any better." I finally got around to finishing Red Seas Under Red Skies...and oh sweet baby Jesus I can't even talk right now. It is rare, so very rare, that I find a second book ...
