The Republic of Thieves
Thief and conman Locke Lamora must live with the past in order to survive the day – the Bonds Magi are back, out to exact revenge, and Locke must also counter his first love.
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.
