So through another io9 recommendation, I'm reading the Gentlemen Bastards series by Scott Lynch.
This weekend, I finished the first book The Lies of Locke Lamora, and it's pretty amazing. The world is deep, the characters are full, and the revenge just keeps coming.
I have to say, I really like the maps too.
They're books that I'd love to see turned into movies. The first book has so much visual to it that I'd love to see it. And the second book Red Seas Under Red Skies has a perfect sequel opening.
