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.… (lisätietoja)

I love Scott Lynch's writing a great deal, and enjoyed this third in the Gentlemen Bastards series, but ... honestly, it felt like a second book. (That it took until the third book to hit this phase is all to Lynch's credit.)

Fun to read, but most of it felt like transition and setup for later stuff, especially the weird "maybe it's a prophecy or maybe I'm just messing with you" stuff from Patience at the end, after which she's conveniently removed from the picture. It felt to me a little like Lynch giving himself some framework to work with -- or ignore, at his pleasure -- in later books.

That said, I'll still be first in line for the next one, so even "just okay" for Lynch still counts as "I will certainly read it" in my estimation. ( )

Lynch has done a fantastic job with the previous two books in this series, but this one really builds more towards the larger story than he ever did before. Not only are we introduced to the infamous Sabetha (the lone female Gentleman Bastard and love interest of Locke Lamora), but Lynch builds on the previous two novels by setting this story in Karthian, the home of the Bondsmagi. In a sense this book is the fall-out from the previous two stories (we see the return of the Falconer, and give Locke a solution for his poisoned state), but the whole challenge of Locke and Jean competing against Sabetha to win the civil elections for factions of the Bondsmagi makes for a very entertaining vehicle. While they trick, inconvenience, and toy with each other Lynch is busy building a larger story that will hopefully be continued in the next book in the series, both in the sense of the Bondsmagi removing themselves from the world and by giving Locke a potential backstory that may complicate things severely. The question of whether Locke’s previous incarnation is actually a reality or not could make for a very interesting next book, as could the return of the previously vanquished (and obviously still very dangerous) Falconer. And then there’s how the Falconer’s reckless use of power (and similar behavior from Locke if he actually does have magic in his blood) will affect whatever race wiped out the Eldren Things - and hence why the Bondsmagi have withdrawn their magic from the world.

The journey of Locke and Jean find themselves facing off with their “Sister” in an election game overseen by some of the most powerful people on the planet. The Republic of Thieves is the third book of Scott Lynch’s Gentlemen Bastards sequence which see the first appearance of the Lady Bastard herself and Locke’s former lover facing off with the duo.

The book begins with flashback to the first meeting of Locke and Sabetha, the woman that he has been in love with throughout the series but who has not been introduced until this book, when they are still part of the Shade's Hill gang under the Thiefmaker. Locke falls for her but does not get to see her often then learns from older children that Sabetha drowned, and he will never see her again. Throughout the book in a series of flashbacks Locke and Sabetha as a part of the Gentlemen Bastards through their early years and finally how they became a couple while playing actors in a production of the book’s title, The Republic of Thieves. The book’s present narrative begins weeks after the previous one with Locke is dying and Jean is working to save his life, including kidnapping a physiker that brings down a local gang on them that takes everything they have. Afterwards a Bondsmagi by the name of Patience appears and offers the pair a deal. They can work with her faction of the Bondsmagi to rig elections, in favor of the Deep Roots Party, in exchange for money and Locke's life. They agree. The Bondsmagi carry Locke to the ship to Karthain on which they perform the healing. When completed is Locke is alive and hungry, it is now that they learn that Sabetha is working for the other side, the Black Iris party, and has been there a few days. Upon their arrival in Karthain, the two sides play several childish pranks back and forth. Locke is tricked by Sabetha and he and Jean awaken on a luxurious boat. Locke and Jean barely escape this boat by cutting off a small boat and escaping to shore. After a multiple day journey back to the Karthain, Locke and Sabetha make a truce for the safety of themselves and Jean to prevent issues and ensure a good show for the Bondsmagi. The elections continue and near the end Patience explains to Locke and Sabetha that Locke may be an ancient Bondsmagi who successfully moved from one body to the body of a child. The cost of this was the plague mentioned in previous books. The election result is 10 – 9 in favor of the Black Iris party. One of Locke's schemes plays out and a key Black Iris member changes his position to neutral making the result 9 – 9 – 1. Locke, Jean, and Sabetha escape the fallout to a safe house. Locke awakes in the night to find Patience there and Sabetha gone. Patience explains that Locke may or may not be the magi, but she will not tell him. Sabetha has left after learning about this. Jean appears and Locke tells him he will respect Sabetha's wish for space and will only go after her if she would wish it. The epilogue gives a story about the Falconer and his journey regaining power. The epilogue ends with the Falconer killing his mother, Patience.

This book was hard to judge because I was more interested in the flashback narrative of the young Gentleman Bastards’ first con as actors in Espara than the present-day political contest between the Bastard Brothers and their Sister. That is not to say that the political game was not interesting but compared to the early adventures of the Bastards the election felt more like it was set up for the Bondsmagi plot, though the introduction of Sabetha was nice especially as she will be important later in the sequence most likely. And the purported origin of Locke could either be very interesting or a big misdirection which will be interesting to see play out.

The Republic of Thieves felt like both a prequel and continuation of Scott Lynch’s Gentlemen Bastards sequence with underlining plot thread that will no doubt become important in the future of the series. This interesting combination does not make the book bad but does not make it feel like a united whole either. However, at the end of reading I’m still interesting to see what Locke and Jean will do in the future. ( )
