Description

Escaping from the attentions of the Bondsmagi Locke Lamora, the estwhile Thorn of Camorr and Jean Tannen have fled their home city. Taking ship they arrive in the city state of Tal Varrar where they are soon planning their most spectacular heist yet; they will take the luxurious gaming house, The Sinspire, for all of its countless riches.

No-one has ever taken even a single coin from the Sinspire that wasn't won on the tables or in the other games of chance on offer there.

But, as ever, the path of true crime rarely runs smooth and Locke and Jean soon find themselves co-opted into an attempt to bring the pirate fleet of the notorious Zamira Drakasha to justice. Fine work for thieves who don't know one end of galley from another. And all the while the Bondsmagi are plotting their very necessary revenge against the one man who believes e has humiliated them and lived; Locke Lamora.

Fantastic Read/Listen

In a refreshing departure from many fantasy novels, Scott Lynch's characters are not superhumans possessed of some extraordinary power, but survive on the strength of their own wits. The stakes are high, but not ridiculously so. The world isn't about to be destroyed, or thrust into an endless dark age. Much as the first book in this series, The Lies of Locke Lamora, this is a heist/fantasy novel. The protagonists are not immune to failure, and the story seems driven more by it's characters, than by an ultimate goal, which makes it a pleasure to listen to. The characters are possessed of a strange morality, and are humanized by the situations in which they are conflicted by practical concerns, and their desire to adhere to their own code of ethics. Success is never guaranteed in this series so far, which leaves me sympathizing with the characters own frustration, and keeps the tension strong. Locke and Jean don't wander from one startling, incredible success to another, and so the journey is never boring.

The audio narrator is crisp and precise, speaking with a smooth cadence, and does an excellent job with voices and accents, further enriching this atmospheric book.

If your reading this Mr. Lynch, get back to writing (and thank you).

Excellent listen

The audio was good and the entonación was perfect even for 1.5x. My main issue is with the story, not as strong as the previous one, Lies of Locke Lamora.

A great part 2 of the awesome story

What I like about this serie is that characters are not superhumans. They are ordinary, yet highly skilled, people that struggle each day to live their lives. Epic and interesting adventures that keep your attention to the book.
As with part one some stories are left unfinished and kept for next part.

Enjoyable sequel

I very much enkoyed this and I think people who have listened to Lies of Lamora should check it out. It has much of the same but with a slightly different lication.

Amazing!

One of my favourite book series, rendered in a wonderful audio book performance! The story is amazing, I am listening to it after rereading the books multiple times and still I am not bored with it.
The narrator is amazing as well, the way voices each and every character with such care in both cadence and accent, without overdoing either, is great. Micheal Page makes the world come alive . This audio book has exceeded my expectations by far!
