The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch | Waiting on Wednesday

Oh my goodness. Have you read the Gentleman Bastard series by Scott Lynch? I started reading it this week and it is so good. My WOW post for today is for book 3 because it comes out October 8th, and I'm looking forward to being caught up by then.

Gollancz and Marc from Fantasy Faction are hosting a readalong of books 1 and 2 leading up to the release of book 3. I thought it was an awesome idea so I joined in.

Orphan Locke Lamora leads elite thieves "Gentlemen Bastards" trained by priest Chains. In Venice-like city, as the "Thorn of Camorr", he stings the wealthy nobles. But the Gray King kills mobster Capa Barsavi’s trusted, and uses Locke as his pawn to take control. Locke vows revenge, but is best skilled at lies. His opponent has more money, men, and power.

Have you read or heard of this series? What are you anxiously waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments or leave me a link!

  1. I haven't heard of these. The cover is interesting! Thanks for sharing.
    My WOW!

  2. I haven't heard of this series. Definitely adding them to my TBR list. Thanks.

  3. I bought the first in this series not too long ago (one of the few that hasn't been in my TBR for a ridiculous amount of time, in other words). I've heard really fantastic things about it! I'd better get a move on if the third book is due out, though.

  4. Oooh, I haven't heard of this series before, but there's something about the covers that give them a fantasy twist, and I LOVE fantasy.

    Can't wait to pick these up! Great picks.

    Stop by my WoW

  5. this was new to me. I've never heard of the author so thanks for sharing.
    our WoW:

  6. I've heard some pretty amazing things about this series but I have yet to jump in. The size of those books and the fact that fantasy isn't usually my thing is what's stopping me... but someday! Hope you're enjoying them. :)

  7. I am OBSESSED with this series. they really are fantasy with a snarky twist. and the writing is just fantastic!

    how are you enjoying Locke Lamora so far?

    1. I really love it so far. The readalong is spread out over 4 weeks. I'm trying to keep on schedule so it will be a slow read. I'm paused until the end of the weekend. :)
