Escaping from the attentions of the Bondsmagi Locke Lamora, the estwhile Thorn of Camorr and Jean Tannen have fled their home city. Taking ship they arrive in the city state of Tal Varrar where they are soon planning their most spectacular heist yet; they will take the luxurious gaming house, The Sinspire, for all of its countless riches.

No-one has ever taken even a single coin from the Sinspire that wasn't won on the tables or in the other games of chance on offer there.

But, as ever, the path of true crime rarely runs smooth and Locke and Jean soon find themselves co-opted into an attempt to bring the pirate fleet of the notorious Zamira Drakasha to justice. Fine work for thieves who don't know one end of galley from another.

And all the while the Bondsmagi are plotting their very necessary revenge against the one man who believes e has humiliated them and lived; Locke Lamora.

Review:

"Balancing thrilling action sequences with the harsh realities of violence and its aftermath, it's the kind of witty romp that reminds you how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be. Rip-roaring entertainment." (Saxon Bullock. SFX)

As sequels go, Red Seas Under Red Skies is fabulous and a more accomplished, more tightly written novel than its predecessor. Considering what a top notch job Lynch did with his debut, this is impressive. (Rob Bedford SFFWORLD.COM)

The Lies of Locke Lamora was one of the most stylish debuts in years. Red Seas Under Red Skies manages to be a worthy succesor. (Roz Kaveney TIME OUT)

The release of another of Scott Lynch's Gentleman Bastard series has become something of a fantasy event. (EDGE)

"This complex fantasy novel is full of surprises and intriguing characters. An absolutely cracking read" (DEATHRAY)

Book Description:

Locke Lamora takes to the seas in the sequel to the sensation THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA
