The Republic of Thieves

The Republic of Thieves - Scott Lynch This was amazing!!
This book takes place immediatley after Red Seas Under Red Skies.
First thing I was excited about was the flashbacks. That's right, folks, we get more of the Sanza twins!
And FINALLY we meet Sabetha. Both in the flashbacks and in present time. Now, as excited as I was to meet her, I have to say I was a bit disappointed. I know there must be more back story to her and Locke's relationship but she treated Locke pretty poorly, in my opinion. Until the whole story is played out, I don't think I like her. (Granted, that could just be because I love Locke so much.)
I liked that Locke and Jean's relationship is still so strong.
This is everything I loved about the first book and more. There was a large cast for Locke to charm, subterfuge, love interests, deceit, and twists everywhere. It was well worth the full 800 pages.



P.S. FINALLY! Locke Lamora's true name is revealed!
