    Inhaltsangabe

    “Remarkable...Scott Lynch’s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.” (The Times, London) 

    An orphan’s life is harsh - and often short - in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld’s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game - or die trying. 

    Praise for The Lies of Locke Lamora 

    “Fresh, original, and engrossing...gorgeously realized.” (George R. R. Martin) 

    “Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven’t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.” (Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times best-selling author of The Name of the Wind)

    “High-octane fantasy...a great swashbuckling yarn of a novel.” (Richard Morgan)

    Kritikerstimmen

    “A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters...Locke’s wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.” (The Seattle Times)

    “A true genre bender, at home on almost any kind of fiction shelf...Lynch immediately establishes himself as a gifted and fearless storyteller, unafraid of comparisons to Silverberg and Jordan, not to mention David Liss and even Dickens.” (Booklist, starred review)

    By far the best fantasy audiobook

    A twisted, exciting, fast paced story. An excellent narration from Michael Page. This is by far the best fantasy audiobook I have ever come across.

    A fresh take on the fantasy genre

    Part rollicking heist, part political intrigue, part swashbuckling adventure. From light moments of hilarity to edge-of-your-seat suspense to shattering grief--this story has it all. Add to that engaging characters and immaculate world-building, and I'm off to spent my last credit on the sequel.

    Head over heels for this audio book!

    Great story, great reader and an overall hit for me! I loved diving into this finely woven thieves tale: it's rich and complex with captivating characters and witty twists. Jumped into part 2 directly afterwards. ;-)
