The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch
The Lies of Locke Lamora is the first novel in the Gentleman Bastards series, an epic fantasy adventure. This book is not free. I paid $4.59. It's now $5.49. It would be a bargain at twice the price. This is a long one at over 752 pages, but it's worth every minute you spend reading it. Locke Lamora is a thief. He's not an ordinary thief though. He's in a group knows as the Gentleman Bastards. In the city of Camorr there's what's known as the Secret Peace. Thieves have boundaries in Camorr, but Locke Lamora and his band ignore them. Then a new player shows up in Camorr, and it's up to the Gentleman Bastards to save the city they've spent their lives robbing. The problem is they're likely to die trying. This is an amazing story. There are great characters, great settings, great danger, and mysteries a single novel could never uncover. That's why I've ordered the second book in the series. Very highly recommended.
