On my to read list #3

The Thorn of Camorr is said to be an unbeatable swordsman, a master thief, a friend to the poor, a ghost that walks through walls.

Slightly built and barely competent with a sword, Locke Lamora is, much to his annoyance, the fabled Thorn. And while Locke does indeed steal from the rich (who else would be worth stealing from?), the poor never see a penny. All of Locke's gains are strictly for himself and his tight-knit band of thieves. The Gentleman Bastards.

The capricious, colourful underworld of the ancient city of Camorr is the only home they have ever known. But now a clandestine war is threatening to tear it apart. Caught up in a murderous game, Locke and his friends are suddenly struggling just to stay alive...

The Lies of Locke Lamora is certainly going to be one of the fifteen fantasy books (or at lest fifteen) that I'm going to read this year (in 2015 I'm participating in a challenge called 'Flights of Fantasy'. Read more here). I can't express how excited I am for this book. It is epic fantasy and I have very high expectations that I very much hope the book will meet.   

I read really good reviews about it, everyone praises it and I'd like to praise it too. 


The cover is gorgeous! Look at that colouring... And the view of the city reminds me of Venice. I think I'll soon be ready for this adventure.
