'One of my top ten books ever. Maybe top five. If you haven't read it, you should' Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind 'Fresh, original and engrossing' George R.R. Martin, the phenomenon behind A Game of Thrones They say that the Thorn of Camorr can beat anyone in a fight. They say he steals from the rich and gives to the poor. They say he's part man, part myth, and mostly street-corner rumor. And they are wrong on every count. Only averagely tall, slender, and god-awful with a sword, Locke Lamora is the fabled Thorn, and the greatest weapons at his disposal are his wit and cunning. He steals from the rich - they're the only ones worth stealing from - but the poor can go steal for themselves. What Locke cons, wheedles and tricks into his possession is strictly for him and his band of fellow con-artists and thieves: the Gentleman Bastards. Together their domain is the city of Camorr. Built of Elderglass by a race no-one remembers, it's a city of shifting revels, filthy canals, baroque palaces and crowded cemeteries. Home to Dons, merchants, soldiers, beggars, cripples, and feral children. And to Capa Barsavi, the criminal mastermind who runs the city. But there are whispers of a challenge to the Capa's power. A challenge from a man no one has ever seen, a man no blade can touch. The Grey King is coming. A man would be well advised not to be caught between Capa Barsavi and The Grey King. Even such a master of the sword as the Thorn of Camorr. As for Locke Lamora ... Readers can't get enough of Locke Lamora: 'Original, engrossing, emotional, and devastatingly impactful; this extremely well-written tale of avarice and brotherhood is a treasure of gold, and you will want your share of it' Novel Notions 'A rewarding read, well written, and entertaining. I'd recommend any fantasy fan to give it a try' Mark Lawrence, Sunday Times bestselling author 'It is witty, profane, violent, over the top, and frequently hilarious. I can't believe this is Scott Lynch's first novel, and I can't wait to read more. This is an incredibly fun adventure novel. Find yourself a copy and read it' Goodreads reviewer, 'You guys, this story is unreal. It's so morally wrong that you don't even want it to be right. It's that luring, that gritty, that bold . . . its masterfully chaotic - so many subplots, so many characters, so much world-building. theres never a dull moment . . . its intricately woven - no movement, no scene, no word is insignificant. Everything is so interconnected on so many levels. I straight up got chills in some parts' Goodreads reviewer, 'A love child of Ocean's Eleven and The Godfather. With blood, deaths, betrayals, money, and drowning in horse urine . . . and it's SO. GOOD' Goodreads reviewer, 'It stole hours of sleep. It wrapped me in cozy myth. It gave me the blessing of feeling like a kid again, snuggled up with a book, wondering how the hell 10pm became 4am. Find. Buy. Consume' Pierce Brown, bestselling author of the Red Rising series 'I mean seriously, I loved all those characters and their cunning and deceiving ways. XD Throughout the entire book I never knew what to expect and there were about a ton of "Oh, sh*t!" moments that were shortly followed by "Jeez! NO!" and "What happened now?" exclamations' Goodreads reviewer,

  1. Helt otrolig!
    Irion , 22 april 2014

    Detta är en av de bästa böckerna jag läst! Och jag har ändå läst många böcker.
    The Lies of Locke Lamora har allt man kan önska sig. :-)

    bonadea, 4 december 2013

    En av de bästa böckerna jag har läst på länge , Locke Lamoras Lögner har allt en bok ska ha : Historien är spännande , fängslande och personerna levande och trovärdiga. Språket är målande beskrivningar , inte enkelt och tonårs aktigt som många fantasy böcker utan denna bok har kvalitet. Redan efter första sidan var jag fast och fast den är nästan 600 sidor tjock är det inte en sida för mycket, det är med sorg jag avslutar denna bok då det är en läsäventyr och upplevelser som man inte vill ska...

  3. Riktig maffig och suverän bok!
    Jennifer, 6 november 2012

    Den här boken är för dig som gillar lite tyngre läsning. Den är full av intriger, hemligheter och tankeställare. Bra språk och skriven på ett bra sätt som håller en intresserad boken ut. Det känns verkligen som att författaren har tagit god tid på sig att fundera ut innehållet och alla lögner som tillsammans smider ett nät kring huvudpersonen och hans bäste vän. Det här är ingen snabbt ihopslängd bok med väldig lätt handling.

    Trots att den är en fantasy/sci-fi -bok så är den verklig... Läs hela recensionen

"Locke's resilience and wit give the book the tragicomic air of a traditional picaresque, rubbery ethics and all."--"Publishers Weekly " "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. I look forward to returning there for many more visits."--George R. R. Martin "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 com
