Sincererly, one of the best books I have ever read. I don't read much fantasy or science fiction, but this had the perfect blend of adventure, emotion and theivery along with some twists and turns I wasn't expecting. The old-venice like landscape of Camorr is exciting and dangerous and as I read it, I felt I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Harry Potter was imaginative and fun, but this...this has blood and grit, and a true story as opposed to a simple "who-dunnit" type mystery. Hope this review sheds some light and sorry if I sounded like a Locke Lamora geek...this book series is turning me into one.

"Review" by , "Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser would have felt right at home with the Gentleman Bastards. They're not out to save the world, just their own skins...oh, and to relieve some nobles of their gold, jewels, and silks along the way. This is a fresh, original, and engrossing tale by a bright new voice in the fantasy genre....Locke Lamora makes for an engaging rogue, and Camorr a fascinating and gorgeously realized setting, a city to rival Lankhmar, Amber, and Viriconium....look forward to returning there for many more visits."
"Review" by , "Lynch's first novel...calls forth a highly motivated, determined, and sympathetic hero whose antics and knack for derring-do should appeal to fans of Steven Brust's Vlad Taltos novels."
"Review" by , "Scott Lynch is a con man, a conjuror, a wickedly entertaining juggler of words with knives up his sleeves and hatchets down his back. By the time you realize he's dangerous, you're already bleeding. The Lies of Locke Lamora is a ticket inside the astonishing city-state Camorr, and a free pass into the company of the entirely extraordinary Gentleman Bastards, and a match for any fantasy adventure I've ever read. The best news is: it's Book One. That means there'll be more."
"Review" by , "Among the year's most impressive debuts...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. Fans of lavishly appointed fantasy will be in seventh heaven here, but it will be nearly as popular with readers of literary crime fiction."
"Synopsis" by , Debut author Lynch pens a witty and fast-paced narrative that is nearly as much of a con as the wily schemes of its hero.
