They say that the Thorn of Camorr can beat anyone in a fight. They say he steals from the rich and gives to the poor. They say he's part man, part myth, and mostly street-corner rumor. And they are wrong on every count. Only averagely tall, slender, and god-awful with a sword, Locke Lamora is the fabled Thorn, and the greatest weapons at his disposal are his wit and cunning. He steals from the rich - they're the only ones worth stealing from - but the poor can go steal for themselves. What Locke cons, wheedles and tricks into his possession is strictly for him and his band of fellow con-artists and thieves: the Gentleman Bastards. Together their domain is the city of Camorr. Built of Elderglass by a race no-one remembers, it's a city of shifting revels, filthy canals, baroque palaces and crowded cemeteries. Home to Dons, merchants, soldiers, beggars, cripples, and feral children. And to Capa Barsavi, the criminal mastermind who runs the city. But there are whispers of a challenge to the Capa's power. A challenge from a man no one has ever seen, a man no blade can touch. The Grey King is coming. A man would be well advised not to be caught between Capa Barsavi and The Grey King. Even such a master of the sword as the Thorn of Camorr. As for Locke Lamora ...

Hailed by George R. R. Martin as “a fresh, original, and engrossing tale by a bright new voice in the fantasy genre,” The Lies of Locke Lamora introduced one of the most compelling protagonists in years and established Scott Lynch as a household name. Years later, the Gentleman Bastard series continues to shine with Lynch’s signature blend of swashbuckling adventure, sparkling wit, and seemingly impossible heists. It’s all here in this rollicking eBook bundle, which collects the first three volumes of Lynch’s one-of-a-kind series: THE LIES OF LOCKE LAMORA RED SEAS UNDER RED SKIES THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES An orphan’s life is harsh—and often short—in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld’s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game—or die trying. Praise for the Gentleman Bastard series The Lies of Locke Lamora “Remarkable . . . Scott Lynch’s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.”—The Times (London) “Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven’t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind “A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Locke’s wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.”—The Seattle Times Red Seas Under Red Skies “Lynch hasn’t merely imagined a far-off world, he’s created it, put it all down on paper—the smells, the sounds, the people, the feel of the place. The novel is a virtuoso performance, and sf/fantasy fans will gobble it up.”—Booklist (starred review) “It’ll only be a matter of time before Scott Lynch is mentioned in the same breath as George R. R. Martin and Steven Erikson.”—Fantasy Book Critic “The kind of witty romp that reminds you exactly how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be.”—SFX The Republic of Thieves “Fast-paced, fun, and impossible to put down . . . Locke and company remain among the most engaging protagonists in fantasy.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “The Republic of Thieves has all the colorful action, witty repartee, and devious scheming that fans of the series have come to expect.”—Wired “A fantasy world unique among its peers . . . If you’re looking for a great new fantasy series this is one you won’t want to miss. . . . In a word: AWESOME!”—SF Revu

Diesen Fantasy-Helden werden Sie nie wieder vergessen! Locke Lamora ist ein Held. Nein, eigentlich ist er das nicht: Er ist ein Dieb, ein Lügner und ein Ganove, wenn auch mit guten Manieren. Mit seiner Bande bewegt er sich in den Kanälen und engen Gassen des Herzogtums Camorr, um die Nobilität um ihre Schätze zu erleichtern. Und darin ist Locke unschlagbar, denkt er zumindest. Bis ein weiterer Verbrecher in Camorr auftaucht. Locke muss handeln – und das Abenteuer seines Lebens beginnt ... Im Stadtstaat Camorr hat man eine ganz eigene Lösung gefunden, um die Kriminalität unter Kontrolle zu halten: den „Geheimen Frieden“. Gemäß dieser Absprache zwischen dem Adel und dem Herrscher der Unterwelt dürfen Diebe mehr oder weniger ungestraft ihr Unwesen treiben, solange die Aristokratie von ihnen verschont bleibt. Doch Locke Lamora und seine Gentlemen-Ganoven halten nicht viel von Absprachen und haben es sich zur Gewohnheit gemacht, die Reichen der Stadt um ihr Geld zu erleichtern. Das funktioniert wunderbar, bis der geheimnisvolle Graue König mithilfe eines scheinbar unbesiegbaren Soldmagiers die Macht über die Unterwelt an sich reißt und droht, das sensible Herrschaftsgefüge von Camorr aus dem Gleichgewicht zu bringen – und dazu braucht er Lockes einzigartige Fähigkeiten ... Mit diesem Roman betritt ein einzigartiges Talent die Bühne der internationalen Fantasy: Scott Lynchs „Die Lügen des Locke Lamora“ ist nicht nur eine atemberaubende Weltenschöpfung, sondern auch ein Abenteuerroman, der den Leser nicht mehr loslässt.
