Years later, the Gentleman Bastard series continues to shine with Lynch's signature blend of swashbuckling adventure, sparkling wit, and seemingly impossible heists. It's all here in this rollicking eBook bundle, which collects the first three volumes of Lynch's one-of-a-kind series: THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA RED SEAS UNDER RED SKIES THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES An orphan's life is harsh--and often short--in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld's most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game--or die trying. Praise for the Gentleman Bastard series The Lies of Locke Lamora "Remarkable . . . Scott Lynch's first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining."--The Times (London) "Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven't read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again."--Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind "A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Locke's wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike."--The Seattle Times Red Seas Under Red Skies "Lynch hasn't merely imagined a far-off world, he's created it, put it all down on paper--the smells, the sounds, the people, the feel of the place. The novel is a virtuoso performance, and sf/fantasy fans will gobble it up."--Booklist (starred review) "It'll only be a matter of time before Scott Lynch is mentioned in the same breath as George R. R. Martin and Steven Erikson."--Fantasy Book Critic "The kind of witty romp that reminds you exactly how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be."--SFX The Republic of Thieves "Fast-paced, fun, and impossible to put down . . . Locke and company remain among the most engaging protagonists in fantasy."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The Republic of Thieves has all the colorful action, witty repartee, and devious scheming that fans of the series have come to expect."--Wired "A fantasy world unique among its peers . . .
