It’s a fun, fast-paced, skillfully written, smart and snarky but surprisingly touching read that had me laughing and shaking my fist in anger within a few pages. So, I kind of tricked you to lay eyes on these lines of lies. It felt like years lamra by while Menfiras tried to get to The Good Stuff. While the main plot of the book features heist, treachery and more mutinies than you could shake a stick at — the heart of the novel lies in the epic bromance that is the Gentlemen Bastards.

And he deserves the world. They were all trapped in their pantomime like figures out of the richly inventive hells of Therin theology: It would have been so easy to make Locke and the Gentlemen Bastards own all their exploits and emerge grinning.

But boy oh boy, when you start to understand the world; this vivid, real, complex and crazy world; it becomes a literal challenge to put the mentras down. Its a mixture of tragic circumstances and incredible wit, with a touch of unbidden morality that makes his protagonist who he is. Under Locke’s leadership, the Gentleman Bastards are known as a small gang of gentrified but petty thieves and pickpockets, and their dues, though regularly paid, are relatively small. Although I give fair warning, this books is no happily lodke after, and definitely not romance riddled.

The Lies of Locke Lamora – Livros na Amazon Brasil-

Locke – the infamous Thorn of Camorr, Jean and Bug were my personal favourites within the group but the camaraderie presented surrounding the gang was amazing – almost making us as the reader feel part of the ensemble – as we were privy to the cons, the secrets and also the stories revolving the characters youths.


After all, someone has already paid for his death before Locke even turned eight. It is absolutely everything it should be, and then some.

I loved the twists and turns, the mentiraas, and of course the cons pulled by Locke and co. Locke faces Raza in mortal combat even though he is outmatched by the Capa’s skills with a sword, and is nearly killed before managing to distract Raza for the split second he needs to finally slay him.

The Lies of Locke Lamora

When I first read the blurb for this book, I was all: Suffice to say, he has learnt from the best thief of the age. Locke goes to the Floating Grave in disguise, where Barsavi is celebrating the Gray King’s supposed death.

It was so badass and Jean is my precious. He loves being a Thorn in their side and giving them the taste of their menturas medicine. His world creation is absolutely incredible, by the way. And why am I the one who gets to push this stupid barge all the way to the market? I’m out to get you. The others began to loocke. This crap is as welcome as a pile of severed dog cocks.

Maybe he already tricked you into giving him money. And I have such a book hangover Locke Lamora overlooking the city of Camorr The plot of the book df out slow and at the same time, with a bang. A lovely place to raise children. Elite con artists calling. I’m talking about the first hundred pages, because names of people and places were thrown at me from nowhere, to the point where I felt stupid because I didn’t fully grasp everything the characters were talking about.

From the Hardcover edition. Locke finds himself face to face with the Gray King and his hired Bondsmage “The Falconer”, who somehow know what the Gentleman Bastards have been up to; Locke agrees to impersonate the Lamors King in an arranged meeting with Barsavi in exchange for the Gray King’s silence, as well as the Bondsmage’s magical protection from Barsavi’s wrath during the meeting.

They have one of the strongest friendship bonds I have ever read about, or even seen in real life. Those here are my wonderful Calo and Galdo.

Lmora those of you who read a lot of Very Long Fantasy Serieses, this may be a foreign concept. Based on the synopsis and the limited knowledge I had of this book before I picked it up, I assumed locke’s thieving life will begin after he is taken into the custody of the thief lord, but boy was I mistaken.

I literally loved reading it. It helps make the story feel truly, perfectly grubby and real.

Our protagonist I definitely won’t call him a From the first threat to use someone’s balls as fish bait to the last attempt to drown someone in horse piss, I absolutely adored this book. Odd chance, you say?

I pretty much have nothing to say about this book. I think I just wrote a blah blah blah, skim skim skim review! Our protagonist Locke Lamora is not good looking, he isn’t at all good in a fight, and we get to watch him be impotent in bed, an arrogant little snit who gets slapped down several times, and taking very very petty, not noble revenge on a bunch of people.

Locke clutched once again at the harmless coils of rope circling his neck and spared a glance for the horse staring at him from just a few paces away, laden down with a rich-looking cargo of merchant’s packs. Within the first pages and I’m already in love with the members of the gang already.

The world-building laid the foundation to a much richer world which I am excited to explore in future books.

And that’s pretty much all I know about it. Regardless, consider yourselves warned. This was completely unnecessary.
