Fantasy. Fiction. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:In his highly acclaimed debut, The Lies of Locke Lamora, Scott Lynch took us on an adrenaline-fueled adventure with a band of daring thieves led by con artist extraordinaire Locke Lamora. Now Lynch brings back his outrageous hero for a caper so death-defying, nothing short of a miracle will pull it off.

After a brutal battle with the underworld that nearly destroyed him, Locke and his trusted sidekick, Jean, fled the island city of their birth and landed on the exotic shores of Tal Verrar to nurse their wounds. But even at this westernmost edge of civilization, they can??t rest for long??and are soon back to what they do best: stealing from the undeserving rich and pocketing the proceeds for themselves.
This time, however, they have targeted the grandest prize of all: the Sinspire, the most exclusive and heavily guarded gambling house in the world. Its nine floors attract the wealthiest clientele??and to rise to the top, one must impress with good credit, amusing behavior?and excruciatingly impeccable play. For there is one cardinal rule, enforced by Requin, the house??s cold-blooded master: it is death to cheat at any game at the Sinspire.
Brazenly undeterred, Locke and Jean have orchestrated an elaborate plan to lie, trick, and swindle their way up the nine floors?straight to Requin??s teeming vault. Under the cloak of false identities, they meticulously make their climb??until they are closer to the spoils than ever.
But someone in Tal Verrar has uncovered the duo??s secret. Someone from their past who has every intention of making the impudent criminals pay for their sins. Now it will take every ounce of cunning to save their mercenary souls. And even that may not be enough.?
Praise for 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)
??Red Seas Under Red Skies firmly proves that Scott Lynch isn??t a one-hit wonder. . . . 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
??Grand, grandiose, grandiloquent . . . No critic is likely to fault Lynch in his overflowing qualities of inventiveness, audacious draftsma

This remarkable fantasy fascinated me from the first page. New settings, new challenges, and new plots intrigued me. Pirates and grifters interest me. Yes, I am picking up the next book in the series.

Highly recommended for those who have read the first book. ( )

Thank goodness the next book is coming out soon, ( )

the Gentlemen Bastards are all at sea in this chapter two - and so is the novel a little without the backup players and the particulars of the city backdrop, plus a little too much emphasis for my taste on the particulars of how to sail. and the plot has holes in it again. it's a good book, though: plenty of momentum and you can't really go wrong with pirates, can you?

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."
