Review: The Republic of Thieves

The Republic of Thieves
The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received a free ebook ARC copy of this book from NetGalley. Thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.

4.5 stars. Wow. We've had a long wait for this book, and for the introduction of the character of Sabetha. Both were satisfying.

Lynch's books are always like a big fun chess match. Full of intrigue and funny as hell banter, you never know what to expect. He really knows how to get into a character's head, and then get that character into the reader's head. In the first two books, Lynch made us love the Gentlemen Bastards. In this one, he reaffirms that affection, and brings it around to Sabetha as well.

And some of the side characters have their own charm as well. And those damn bondsmagi!

Seriously, read it. If you haven't read the first two, do that first. Then read this.
