Description

He's back! The long-awaited return of the most exciting new commercial fantasy writer of the 21st century. After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins, the Bonds Magi. It is a fallout that will pit both men against Locke's own long lost love.

Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds, Sabetha has just one goal - to destroy Locke for ever. The Gentleman Bastard sequence has become a literary sensation in fantasy circles and now, with the third book, Scott Lynch is set to seal that success.

Good but not my favourite.

My least favourite so far but still quite enjoyable. I didn't enjoy the romantic leads in this book as much as the last. Locke is at his best outwitting opponents, not trying to understand women.

The hero is kind of a creepy stalker

What would have made The Republic of Thieves better?

The character development is very poor. I can't tell the difference between the characters at 15 and 30. The romance is based on the hero following and continually debasing himself to his love until she gives in and admits her love. According to this book stalking works.

The best one so far!

The book picks up characters from book 1, and the plot gets deeper and more complex. Can’t wait for book 4.

Good book but read the middle part

The series is excellent and this book is no exception. However, the parts between, say 30% and 70% have been less good than the rest. I did not like the endless citations from a play you dont get to understand anyway.

Absolutely fantastic!

To be honest The Republic of thieves is probably my favourite out of all GB 3 books. The storyline, the characters, every single detail is well thought out by Scott Lynch!

It was one of those series where I couldn't wait to find out what happens, but didn't want it to end. and when it did, oh the torment. Lol.

Epic book and lots of fun

I truly love this guy's writing and style. I often laughed my head off at his way of expressing ideas, and truly did not see the twists coming no matter how hard I tried! Hope there is more

Themes a little scattered but still enjoyable

I absolutely loved the first book, and I enjoyed the second. But I fell off the wagon in this one.

To avoid spoilers I can't say more than I feel like the direction of the series is significantly surprising for me. I'll likely get the next book just to see this through. But this was one of the rougher slogs to read of the series.
The thing that most dragged down on my interest was the romance. It's a little exhausting. I've no issue with romance in novels and gladly invite it. As long as it doesn't take three pages to describe how much a character is enchanted by red hair or an overly lengthy description of their love interests appearance.
But otherwise I really do love Scott Lynch's work. And I'd strongly recommend giving this series a go if you are a fan of fantasy adventure ah-la Patrick Rothfuss, or Ursula K. Le Guin

More of the same... which is not a bad thing

Lynch continues to keep up the good work.
It is hard to top "Locke Lamora", however, so it's not surprising this books is not as strong as the first one... or even two.

The main thing which, for me, is going against it is this: the whole "skewing the voting" thing is set off against background of "what is the actual honest voting". I mean, they do this and that to spoil it for the other side, but why do the actually bother?

...anyway, it's nice that nobody dies.

Good, but...

A very nice read, but somewhat lacking compared to the previous books. Its pace is considerably slower than in the previous installments, in particular when talking about the younger Locke. Still, the ending is intriguing and leaves the reader waiting for more.

The Republik der Diebe? (leichte spoiler)

Der dritte Band der Trilogie der aber den vierten Band folgen lassen muss. wir erfahren mehr über Lockes Beziehung zu Sabetha und geraten in die Abgründe der Politik. Statt einer Republik der Diebe wird mehr und mehr klar, dass die Magier eigentlich das sagen haben.

Great Fun and a fantastic performance

I'm guessing anyone considering to buy this audiobook has listened to the previous two. In that case, I can only recommend this one.

good book , I preferred book 1 and 2

not much to say here y I simply didn't enjoy the story as much in the third book. book 1 and 2's setting was more interesting too me , book 3 had too much romance for my tastes.

Not on par with the previous books.

Maybe it's me, but I found this book to lack the excitement and action of the previous Gentlemen Bastards publications. The narrator is great as always.
