The Lies of Locke Lamora (Gentleman Bastards #1) 02, Jun

THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA by Scott Lynch is one of my three current favorite unfinished series. It is up there with A Song of Ice and Fire and The Kingkiller Chronicles. Mind you, the first book has a benefit of being perfectly able to stand upon its own and if you wanted to just read it then you wouldn't really be depriving yourself of a vast unfinished mystery. Scott Lynch also has his reasons for delaying his publication of the 4th book which I certainly can't fault him. Still, I'm going to say this is a must-read for both fantasy as well as grimdark fantasy fans. It is not only brilliantly written but horrifying as well as gut-bustingly funny.

Rating: 5/5 stars

In my humble opinion, pirates make everything better.

The Republic of Thieves (Gentleman Bastard #3) 16, Apr

Rating: 3.5/5 Stars

A great sequel but pales in comparison compared to the previous two book.
