The Lies of Locke Lamora – Scott Lynch

Locke and his gang of Gentleman Bastards are liars. Nothing personal, its just how they make a living.

But there is of course change and conflict ahead. Locke has to work out how to navigate these new challenges and survive in a pseudo-medieval world in which lying has been essential for their entire lives.

For light fantasy there is a lack of magic or myth. Merely the world having its own mythology, but in this book at least that is all it is. Simply a pantheon of gods who stay away from the real world.

This book has been challenging me from the tbr pile for years, and now I’ve read it I’ve straight away ordered the sequel! At least waiting so long has given Lynch time to write a good part of a series.
