So, do you like epic awesomeness Crossbow battles Death by poison Wild pirate sex Baskets full of cats Then look no further That s right, I said BASKETS FULL OF CATS I ll be honest, when I first read this book, years ago, my reaction was kinda meh Or rather, I remember it being that way It was a long time back, and I can barely bring to mind what I ate for lunch yesterday So I m not terribly reliable that way I also vaguely remember that it wasn t as talked up as Lies of Locke Lamora There wasn t the same excited buzz about it when it came out, so I remember feeling reasonably justified in my meh feeling That means reading through it again a second time was an interesting experience Because now I have passed through the fiery hell that is Publishing The Second Book Don t get me wrong first books are hard, especially in secondary world fantasy You have to introduce an entire world You re constantly walking the knife edge between boring people by explaining too much, and confusing them by explaini After reading a Tumblr post Where Lynch responded to a reader s complaints about political correctness in this novel, I am intrigued.

5 5 StarsContrary to the popular opinion that Red Seas Under Red Skies, the second book in the Gentleman Bastard Sequence series, is weaker than its predecessor, I m inclined to say that it s not inferior nor superior but it s equally great with The Lies of Locke Lamora in a different way It retained some elements that made the first book rose to its fame and at the same time, replace some of them with some new factors to the series I do, however, enjoyed reading the first bookDifficult and impossible are cousins often mistaken for one another, with very little in commonTwo years after the end of the first book, we continue straight off with The Gentleman Bastard trying to, again, pull off another biggest heist they ever attempted The plot started with Locke Jean camouflaging as professional gamblers Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee, Jon Snow and Samwell Tarly, FitzChivalry Farseer and The Fool, Locke Lamora and Jean Tammen eight men of fantasy who without their counterpart would be nothing Indeed, without Jean at his back Locke Lamora would have no chance of success Both men provide the other with what he lacks, and together they make a deadly, silver tongued, thieving duo that are best summed up in two words awesome bastards A deadly scheme on the high seas It was a big surprise to me that in the prologue Jean betrays Locke It s obviously not real, and there s obviously a reason for the farce it is, no doubt, a charade for the benefit of their mark But, either way, it made me storm through the book to discover exactly why it had happened This was a bit of an 5 5Who s the biggest, meanest motherfucker here Who s the best bruiser in the Brass CovesBuddy read with my fellow ship mates Petrik Celeste.
THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD Seriously, it was incredible I can t even explain how happy I was to be back in this world I went into this book with lowish expectations because, I heard it was the weakest in the trilogy However for me that wasn t the case, this book was as good as The Lies of Locke Lamorr, honestly I can t decide if I like this one or the first one better, so I m going to say they are both equally amazing I found the writing this time around to be much easier to follow and still love the way the chapters are set, past and present BUT I still hated the long arse descriptions that go on and on, the world building is wonderful however I found the descriptions to be over kill The action in this one doe I probably enjoyed this book than the first of the Gentleman Bastard sequence It starts as fast paced as the previous book ended with Locke Jean already knee deep in a con involving this worlds equivalent of a Casino known as the Sinspire The start of the novel flips between this section and also what the characters have been up to since they sailed away from Camorr at the end of book 1 This section showcases a cool transition period which shows the Gentleman Bastard s as less than their elegant best including an alcoholic Locke After the first 200 pages or so things get very complicated Locke and Jean playing 3 4 personas depending on who they are talking too This tale is mixed with poison, trying to rob a vault at the casino, pretending to be pirates, love, and quite a few deaths again.
There are a lot characters in this bo Although I was prepared to bite my thumb at anyone who had a problem with this book up to about 200 pages in, over the course of the 500 pages after that, I began to slowly, reluctantly and finally in complete exasperation, change my mind.
Scott Lynch begins his novel at the same level of quality as his fabulous first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora His characters are dealing with the events of the previous novel, in a mostly believable fashion, in a believable time period its kept from becoming episodic, or his characters from seeming hollow I very much enjoyed the first 200 pages as they both try to move on and deal with the past and the explanation of how they got where they are when the novel opens two years on from the events of Lies A character development, A banter, A action sequences, A for inventiveness, loved th We can slide down chimneys and slip locks and rob coaches and break vaults and do a fine spread of card tricksbut I hate to tell you that the one class of criminal we really haven t associated with, ever, is fucking piratesStill thoroughly enjoying this series Locke and Jean are on another impossible mission to swindle the rich out of their money What they don t bargain on is the Bondsmagi come for their revenge, using a wealthy man as their means Locke and Jean end up coerced into doing what this man says, in the hope that he won t follow through and kill them This task involves piracy Something Locke and Jean know nothing about So they hit the high seas, with all the trouble, violence and superstition that comes with it All the while Locke s mind is stirring up ways that they can still come out on top I m always blown away with the level of detail and though This book is 1 3 this And 2 3 this Quite a fantastic and epic story A casino caper and a swashbuckling adventure combining action, deception, romance, and humor this book has it all Very well written Even with the length of the story, I never felt that it had gone on too long Definitely no filler.
This is a sequel and I think I like it better than the first That is saying a lot because the first was great In this case, I will say something I don t usually say I think you could read this one without reading the first and be just fine While they do bring up some events from the first book, the author does a great job making this book it s own.
