The Republic of Thieves

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • "A bright new voice in the fantasy genre" (George R. R. Martin), acclaimed author Scott Lynch continues to astound and entertain with his thrillingly inventive, wickedly funny, suspense-filled adventures featuring con artist extraordinaire Locke Lamora. And The Republic of Thieves is his most captivating novel yet.

NAMED ONE OF PASTE'S BEST FANTASY BOOKS OF THE DECADE

With what should have been the greatest heist of their career gone spectacularly sour, Locke and his trusted partner, Jean, have barely escaped with their lives. 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. If Locke agrees to play the role, sorcery will be used to purge the venom from his body-though the process will be so excruciating he may well wish for death. Locke is opposed, but two factors cause his will to crumble: Jean's imploring-and the Bondsmage's mention of a woman from Locke's past: Sabetha. She is the love of his life, his equal in skill and wit, and now, his greatest rival.

Locke was smitten with Sabetha from his first glimpse of her as a young fellow orphan and thief-in-training. But after a tumultuous courtship, Sabetha broke away. Now they will reunite in yet another clash of wills. For faced with his one and only match in both love and trickery, Locke must choose whether to fight Sabetha-or to woo her. It is a decision on which both their lives may depend.

I find this trilogy very problematic. The main character has a lifelong fixation on one woman. The whole book reads uneasy, it is a man's abstract, uhealthy and very imature view on the world, life and women. The charakters never grow, never develop, they only get older. Always going though the same motions. Eternal Peter Pans... I find this trilogy very problematic. The main character has a lifelong fixation on one woman. The whole book reads uneasy, it is a man's abstract, uhealthy and very imature view on the world, life and women. The charakters never grow, never develop, they only get older. Always going though the same motions. Eternal Peter Pans, refusing to grow up and therefore lacking charakter, depth and substance. I made the mistake buying all three books at once. Since I had, I read all three of them but it was really hard, tedious labour. I read books for almost 30 years now. I love books. It gets difficult to be surprised anymore but still it's very rare for me to throw one away. Had to do with this three. What a shame.
