Great Start of a Fantasy Series


The Lies of Locke Lamora is a fantastic start to a series, though it can also stand alone as a complete story. Scott Lynch has portrayed a very detailed and immersive world, and I would love to learn more about it through his future novels. There's a fair amount of profanity and violence, but not really more than one might expect from a story about gangsters, con artists, and other criminals. The many characters were easy to get attached to, which is dangerous in a story where the threat of death is never far away. As the title might lead you to believe, this story is essentially about Locke Lamora and his confidence schemes, though the plot is delightfully twisted and unpredictable. I think the main purpose of this particular novel was to entertain, and it does that spectacularly well!
