The Lies of Locke Lamora, by Scott Lynch


The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastards, Book 1)

This is a brilliantly plotted, deeply detailed and engrossing book. At first it’s all light-heartedĀ adventure and daring, but then bad things happen, and things do indeed get serious. I though I was in for some fun escapism with this one, but then I found myself really growing attached to the characters. ThenĀ things took a turn as our young heroes learned that not everything is just fun and games, and that there are truly bad things out there in the world.

I ready the rest of this series one after another – couldn’t stop if I had to. I really, really needed to know what was going to happen to these people. To me, that’s the mark of a great story: when you find yourself skipping out on other things in life because you just have to know what’s next in this imaginary world.
