Title: The Thorn of Emberlain (Gentleman Bastard #4)
Author: Scott Lynch
Publisher: Gollancz (Orion Publishing Group)
Release Date: September 17, 2015
With 50,000 copies sold of The Republic of Thieves and with praise from the likes of Joe Abercrombie and George RR Martin the saga of the Gentleman Bastard has become a favourite and key part of the fantasy landscape. And now Locke Lamora, thief, con-man, pirate, political deceiver must become a soldier.
A new chapter for Locke and Jean and finally the war that has been brewing in the Kingdom of the Marrows flares up and threatens to capture all in its flames.
And all the while Locke must try to deal with the disturbing rumours about his past revealed in The Republic of Thieves. Fighting a war when you don't know the truth of right and wrong is one thing. Fighting a war when you don't know the truth of yourself is quite another. Particularly when you've never been that good with a sword anyway...
Yay! I LOVE this series, and I'm so glad that there isn't going to be such a long wait as there was for the last book. There were six years between books two and three! This series is so much fun and has all the best elements of fantasy. If you like sarcastic lead characters in fantasy, you need to start reading this series.
