Fantasy. Fiction. Science Fiction. Thriller. HTML:Hailed by George R. R. Martin as a fresh, original, and engrossing tale by a bright new voice in the fantasy genre, The Lies of Locke Lamora introduced one of the most compelling protagonists in years and established Scott Lynch as a household name. Years later, the Gentleman Bastard series continues to shine with Lynchs signature blend of swashbuckling adventure, sparkling wit, and seemingly impossible heists. Its all here in this rollicking eBook bundle, which collects the first three volumes of Lynchs one-of-a-kind series:
 
THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA
RED SEAS UNDER RED SKIES
THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES
 
An orphans life is harshand often shortin the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworlds most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal gameor die trying.
 
Praise for the Gentleman Bastard series
 
The Lies of Locke Lamora
 
Remarkable . . . Scott Lynchs first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.The Times (London)
 
Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you havent read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind
 
A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Lockes wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.The Seattle Times
 
Red Seas Under Red Skies
 
Lynch hasnt merely imagined a far-off world, hes created it, put it all down on paperthe smells, the sounds, the people, the feel of the place. The novel is a virtuoso performance, and sf/fantasy fans will gobble it up.Booklist (starred review)
 
Itll only be a matter of time before Scott Lynch is mentioned in the same breath as George R. R. Martin and Steven Erikson.Fantasy Book Critic
 
The kind of witty romp that reminds you exactly how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be.SFX
 
The Republic of Thieves
 
Fast-paced, fun, and impossible to put down . . . Locke and company remain among the most engaging protagonists in fantasy.Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
The Republic of Thieves has all the colorful action, witty repartee, and devious scheming that fans of the series have come to expect.Wired
 
A fantasy world unique among its peers . . . If youre looking for a great new fantasy series this is one you wont want to miss. . . . In a word:...

Continuing Lynch's series about a very cynical world, heavily Italianate, and on occasion amusing. The fight sequences not the best part. ( )
