“Some day, Locke Lamora,” he said, “some day, you’re going to fuck up so magnificently, so ambitiously, so overwhelmingly that the sky will light up and the moons will spin and the gods themselves will shit comets with glee. And I just hope that I’m still around to see it.”
This book has everything good fantasy should – magic, mayhem, fabulous characters, a well developed world that is explained to you, heightened stakes, intrigues – everything. I loved this book so very much, and I was sad to see it end. I’ll definitely be picking up at least one more book in the series to see how Lynch does with keeping up to the high bar he’s set with this piece. A must read.
