Locke soon finds out that one can only get so far on their aptitude to bullshit alone. And while Kaz Brekker comes off as a grizzled, hard-bitten, year-old black-and-white film noir anti-hero crammed into the body of a teenager, Locke Lamora is pretty much the opposite The story runs non-linearly, jumping back and forth between the past and the present, and shades in between.
The effect was disorienting at first as the story sometimes overspills the bounds of its plot and I would often find myself drifting between intrigued and indifferent. Those quibbles aside, there's a great deal to enjoy in The Lies of Locke Lamora.
The world of Camorr is solidly-crafted and bursting with detail and the vivid, oftentimes violent, action unfolds slowly, propelled by political machinations and anchored in complex character development. Seriously, this book is hilarious.
Series: The Gentleman Bastard Sequence
The Lies of Locke Lamora also has magic in bounds and mysteries by the minute and the best part is that just when you think you've seen the explosion and let your guard down a little, another one happens.
There are moments of victory where I whooped with joy, and there are moments of absolute terror, where everything seems as though it will fall apart.
And I think this book works because Locke is such an interesting character, and the author constantly keeps you off guard as to his truths and intent. Passing themselves off as petty thieves, the brilliant Locke and his tightly knit band of light-fingered brothers have fooled even the criminal underworld's most feared ruler, Capa Barsavi.
But there is someone in the shadows more powerful — and more ambitious — than Locke has yet imagined. Known as the Gray King, he is slowly killing Capa Barsavi's most trusted men — and using Locke as a pawn in his plot to take control of Camorr's underworld.
The Gentleman Bastard Sequence, Book One
With a bloody coup under way threatening to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the Gray King at his own brutal game — or die trying Taking ship they arrive in the city state of Tal Varrar where they are soon planning their most spectacular heist yet; they will take the luxurious gaming house, The Sinspire, for all of its countless riches. No-one has ever taken even a single coin from the Sinspire that wasn't won on the tables or in the other games of chance on offer there.
But, as ever, the path of true crime rarely runs smooth and Locke and Jean soon find themselves co-opted into an attempt to bring the pirate fleet of the notorious Zamira Drakasha to justice. Fine work for thieves who don't know one end of galley from another.
And all the while the Bondsmagi are plotting their very necessary revenge against the one man who believes he has humiliated them and lived; Locke Lamora. Or at least Jean has.
But Locke is slowly succumbing to a deadly poison that no alchemist or physiker can cure. Yet just as the end is near, a mysterious Bondsmage offers Locke an opportunity that will either save him or finish him off once and for all. Magi political elections are imminent, and the factions are in need of a pawn.He next coerces the Spider to set him free to kill Raza, and not put him on trial for theft as a reward for saving their lives.
I'll do the boy ear to ear and send him for teeth lessons. Angiavesta Vorchenza.
He steals from the rich - they're the only ones worth stealing from - but the poor can go steal for themselves. What they saw that night was a graveyard no deeper than the dirt piled above the old tombs.
