MEDIA REVIEWS
Fresh, original, and engrossing . . . gorgeously realized - George R. R. Martin

The Lies of Locke Lamora is one of my top ten books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven't 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

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

“Something a little different.”

Scott Lynch's first book in the Gentleman Bastard Sequence is not one to undertake lightly; if you are not full committed to his writing, I think, you'll miss the quality which is hidden in between intense... More
