I am so glad I finally starting messing around with the ‘Gentlemen Bastards’
This book is such a great start to an epic series full of detailed and rich world building and even richer characters; in more ways then one! The Lies of Locke Lamora seamlessly passes between the formative years of our ‘hero’ Locke and the man we meet today. Now Leader of ‘The Gentlemen Bastards’ ,the smartest of con-men (think Ocean’s 11), we first meet Locke as an orphan taken in by the Fagin like character of the Thief maker. As Locke’s story progresses it becomes an extremely twisty one but one he can easily handle with the other ‘Bastards’ and best friend Jean by his side.
I adored this so much I am about to start book 2 ‘Red Seas under Red Skies’ this coming weekend…can’t leave this world alone just yet!
