Review quote

"Balancing thrilling action sequences with the harsh realities of violence and its aftermath, it's the kind of witty romp that reminds you how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be. Rip-roaring entertainment." -- Saxon Bullock. SFX "As sequels go, Red Seas Under Red Skies is fabulous and a more accomplished, more tightly written novel than its predecessor. Considering what a top notch job Lynch did with his debut, this is impressive." -- Rob Bedford SFFWORLD.COM "The Lies of Locke Lamora was one of the most stylish debuts in years. Red Seas Under Red Skies manages to be a worthy succesor." -- Roz Kaveney TIME OUT "The release of another of Scott Lynch's Gentleman Bastard series has become something of a fantasy event." EDGE "This complex fantasy novel is full of surprises and intriguing characters. An absolutely cracking read" DEATHRAY
