Book Review – Red Seas Under Red Skies

Red Seas Under Red SkiesRed Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

Review: I’m still amazed at how much stuff Scott Lynch can pile into one novel! The second installment of his Gentleman Bastards series includes a casino heist, poison, pirates, a prison break, and at least 3 different aliases for his main characters. And that’s not even close to all the action and adventure packed into “Red Seas Under Red Skies.” I’ve complained before that Scott Lynch’s books feel too long to me but I have to admit that they are a roaring good time.

Book Review – The Lies of Locke Lamora

Review: “Fantasy mixed with Ocean’s 11.” That description was the reason I picked up this book after being told to read it multiple times. And I have my own two words to describe it now: fun stuff. Mr. Lynch’s prose was captivating and funny. I laughed out loud several times and inwardly snickered many other times. The first in Lynch’s Gentleman Bastard series was rousing good fun mixed with intrigue and great fantasy elements.
