After reading a Tumblr post Where Lynch responded to a reader s complaints about political correctness in this novel I am intriguedWhy shouldn t middle aged mothers get a wish fulfillment character you sad little bigot Everyone else does HL Mencken once wrote that Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands hoist the black flag and begin slitting throats I can t think of anyone to whom that applies than my own mom and the mothers on my friends list with the incredible demands on time and spirit they face in their efforts to raise their kids preserve their families and save their own identitysanity into the bargain Shit yes Zamira Drakasha leaping across the gap between burning ships with twin sabers in hand to kick in some fucking heads and sail off into the sunset with her toddlers in her arms and a hold full of plundered goods is a wish fulfillment fantasy from hell I offer her up on a silver platter with a fucking bow on top I hope she amuses and delights In my fictional world opportunities for butt kicking do not cease merely because one isn t a beautiful teenager or a muscle wrapped font of testosterone In my fictional universe the main characters are a fat ugly guy and a skinny forgettable guy with a supporting cast that includes SBF 41 nonsmoker 2 children buccaneer of no fixed abode seeks unescorted merchant for light boarding heavy plunder You don t like it Don t buy my books Get your own fictional universe Your cabbage water vision of worldbuilding bores me to tears fans self

I probably enjoyed this book than the first of the Gentleman Bastard seuence It starts as fast paced as the previous book ended with Locke Jean already knee deep in a con involving this worlds euivalent of a Casino known as the Sinspire The start of the novel flips between this section and also what the characters have been up to since they sailed away from Camorr at the end of book 1 This section showcases a cool transition period which shows the Gentleman Bastard s as less than their elegant best including an alcoholic LockeAfter the first 200 pages or so things get very complicated Locke and Jean playing 3 4 personas depending on who they are talking too This tale is mixed with poison trying to rob a vault at the casino pretending to be pirates love and uite a few deaths againThere are a lot characters in this book than the first that I cared about So much going on including the divisions of pirates mages still after Locke Jean assassination attempts etc As I mentioned this is very fast paced and I think the human ualities of the main characters shine they are not superheroes and are just likely to make mistakes during the long cons Also Jean and Locke have the best bromance ever Can t wait for the next book James xPs I am pretty sure I got lucky and bought the first edition of this book for 100 from a charity shop Woop x

Read & download Red Seas Under Red Skies Scott Lynch ✓ 9 Read & download Summary Ú E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Scott Lynch Of all the Sinspire the most exclusive and heavily guarded gambling house in the world Its nine floors attract the wealthiest clientele and to rise to the top one must impress with good credit amusing behavior and excruciatingly impeccable play For there is one cardinal rule enforced by Reuin the house's cold blooded master it is death to cheat at any game at the SinspireBrazenly undeterred Locke and Jean have orchestrated an elaborate plan to lie. Buddy read with these thieves Celeste Sarah455 StarsContrary to the popular opinion that Red Seas Under Red Skies the second book in the Gentleman Bastard Seuence series is weaker than its predecessor I m inclined to say that it s not inferior nor superior but it s eually great with The Lies of Locke Lamora in a different way It retained some elements that made the first book rose to its fame and at the same time replace some of them with some new factors to the series I do however enjoyed reading the first book Difficult and impossible are cousins often mistaken for one another with very little in common Two years after the end of the first book we continue straight off with The Gentleman Bastard trying to again pull off another biggest heist they ever attempted The plot started with Locke Jean camouflaging as professional gamblers in an opulent casino named Sinspire executing one of the necessary steps for their heist However again the heist gets so much complicated than what they plannedThe whole setting of the book took place in a completely different place than its predecessor this time taking place in the island city of Tal Verrar and the Sea of Brass Although I miss the city of Camorr for its beauty and resemblance with Venice I do think that Tal Verrar and Sea of Brass gave the necessary new atmosphere to the book and series as a wholePicture Tal VerrarThe entire narrative is still told in the same storytelling method as the previous book by shifting between present and past time frame The past sections this time are called Reminiscent and it s there to bridge the 2 years gap before the beginning of the book These past sections are there only for the first half of the book it s different from the previous book where it lasted from the beginning up to the end and honestly speaking I prefer it to last all the way since it worked so well before However the entire Reminiscent sections explored how Locke deals with the aftermath of Camorr and how he ll set up their plan for the biggest heist of their career which remained captivating as alwaysThe most enthralling part of the book for me will have to be the uestions How the hell will they get out of this situation How will they execute their schemes that were present through the entire plot line It s ingenious how Scott Lynch implemented the lies heist all the moving parts and schemes after schemes filled with humorous crude yet elouent dialogues which I can t ever seem to get enough of Any man can fart in a closed room and say that he commands the wind Imagine what Kvothe the Arcane would say to that Locke would probably fart and said he knows The Name of the Wind if they ever metAll the parts I discussed just now are or less the same as the greatness we received in The Lies of Locke Lamora and so come up the uestion what makes this book so different from its predecessor Pirates the last half of the book took on a completely different atmosphere with its seafaring piracy and naval warfare Don t get me wrong despite being on a ship most of the time there are still a lot of lies and schemes going on and I admit I m not too fond of being in the sea too long since there s nothing to look at in the world building during this duration other than you know the sea However Scott Lynch managed to make it so fun to read with the never ending problems that arise the longer the Gentleman Bastards are there Plus the amount and uality of the actions piece in this book are superior to the previous book in my opinion Thrilling actions during the naval warfare and great climax scenes are all there and they in my opinion killed the boredom that should ve been caused by the setting completelyPicture Locke Lamora in Red Seas Under Red Skies Chinese edition coverNow let s talk about the best part of the book the characters With the second book finished let s just say Locke and Jean has become one of my favorite book duobromance of all time Their friendship loyalty banter is without a doubt the best part of the book or maybe the series itself for me even than the schemes and heists Their banter and interaction completely give life to the bookWhether it s the humorous interactions Worst of all the inner vault is guarded by a live dragon attended by fifty naked women armed with poisoned spears each of them sworn to die in Reuin s service All redheads You re just making that up Jean Or the heartwarming one I want to hug you And I want to tear your gods damned head off Both at onceAh near as I can tell that s the definition of family right there The Gentleman Bastards aside all the other characters are replaced with a completely new cast of characters This doesn t mean that the new characters are poorly written though Zamira Drakasha and Ezri Delmastro are both a fantastic addition to the story with them being the strong and compelling female characters which the first book don t really haveOverall Red Seas Under Red Skies once again proved Scott Lynch s capability in writing a great book with uniue high fantasy story compelling main characters and beautiful settings It s another must have addition to the Gentleman Bastard seuence and in my opinion eually great with the first book I know it s been almost 10 years since the release of this book but hey better late than never right So chop chop for those of you who haven t started yet time to read this seriesI highly recommend this to anyone who s looking for a uniue high fantasy full of swashbuckling friendship hilarious and captivating dialogues heart wrenching and thrilling moments yet at the same time remaining highly fun and enjoyable to read
