As with most fantasy universe series, I was kind of expecting Lynch to take a similar thieving-and-scheming theme to drive the adventures of the two remaining Gentleman Bastards, but he did just enough to take it away from the doubles of the thief-central Cammore to keep things interesting. Tal Verrar centres its crimes on gambling, so the story starts off with Locke and Jean planning an elaborate robbery of the city's gambling baron. That would be too simple for them though, so Lynch throws in plot lines involving the city's ruling military leader and council, tied of course to Locke's previous run in with the Bondsmagi. I don't want to give away any more of the plot details besides a hearty warning of PIRATES (haha), so I'll leave one final comment along the lines of: what the fuck is with the ending, and I can't bloody wait to read the third novel!

Ridiculously good fun. I laughed, I cried, etc. etc. Looking forward to more from Lynch. ( )

Pacing is slowing down in this volume. The exuberance of the first is now a distant memory. ( )

Pretty good, didn't enjoy it quite as much as the first, and damn those interludes are tedious. All in all great read though, it really gets going about 1/4 the way in. ( )

Red Seas Under Red Skies (GollanczF.) If you have somehow stumbled upon this review please be warned that it may contain spoilers from the first book. If, for some reason, you have not read the first book, please do so - it's bloody brilliant.It is my misfortune to report that Scott Lynch has been diagnosed with SBS (Second Book Syndrome). Symptoms include the second book not living up to the first. Readers may expect disappointment and a general feeling of being underwhelmed. Joking aside "Red Seas Under Red Skies" is, in its own right, a fantastic book and I think this one will grow on me when I read it again (and again). Where the book falls down is the plot, but it shines because of the characters, particularly the charismatic and loveable Locke Lamora. Whilst The Lies of Locke Lamora is exploding (literally in some parts of the story) with action, RSURS bumbles along at a more mellow pace with the plot spread over several weeks, as opposed to a few days in the first book. It's the pace that lets the book down in the end - many pages are devoted to Locke and Jean learning how to pirate, which dampened the excitement induced by the beginning of the book.However, the book's strength lies in the characters. We are introduced to some badass female characters (Delmastro, Drakasha and Selendri) - it's refreshing to come across female characters who have a purpose beyond being love interests (I had a bad experience of this recently). We do see a different side to Locke though. It's clear that he's still getting over the pain of losing the majority of the Gentleman Bastards and Lynch does this perfectly. Sometimes Locke's pain is raw and obvious, at other times its subtle - he pushes people away, he's distrustful, quite reckless at times and full of vengeance. Although RSURS doesn't match up to the pace and the action of the first book, I did enjoy the subtleties playing behind the scenes. I have high hopes for the rest of the series though and cannot wait for the third book :D ( )

Locke Lamora stood on the pier in Tal Verrar with the hot wind of a burning ship at his back and the cold bite of a loaded crossbow’s bolt at his neck.

When you can't cheat the game, you'd best find a means to cheat the players.
I can finger-dance a live cat into a standard deck of fifty-six, and slip it back out at leisure. Other players might complain about the noise, but they'd never spot the source.
"I think piracy's a bit like drinking," said Jean. "You want to stay out all night doing it, you pay the price the next day."
