KatSings’ #CBR5 Review #7: The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

“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.

  1. Don’t be such a pessimist, Ashley. Republic of Thieves has been on most anticipated releases of the year for what, the last 3 years, now? Surely he must finish and release it at some point. Right? 😉

    • I don’t know, it could take another five years. Martin is slow because his books are massive and he’s a perfectionist. Lynch is slow because he has anxiety and that is so much more of a problem.
