Red Seas Under Red Skies - Scott Lynch
Red Seas Under Red Skies is the second novel in the Gentleman Bastards series. This book is $4.92 for the kindle, but at 786 pages it's a bargain. You have to read The Lies of Locke Lamora first. Trust me, it's worth it. Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen survived the debacle in Camorr to resurface in Tal Verrar. Their plans were a simple bit of thievery. A plan that was two years into it's execution, and about to pay off. Then they ran afoul of the Archon of Tal Verrar. Their plans changed. Thievery and piracy are close cousins. Now Locke and Jean must learn to sail. A less likely pair of land-huggers could hardly be found. This is another amazing story with the heroes of The Lies of Locke Lamora back at their larcenous best. There's plenty of adventure, danger, and some romance as well. And did I mention pirates! Very highly recommended.
