Scott Lynch has turned in the much awaited The Republic of Thieves to his major publishers. We're a bit ahead of the game on this one, with the artwork done, the signature sheets signed, and the book itself read two devilsh times. Please pay close attention to the ordering details this time around, as we have to give long-time collectors of the series first crack at what's likely to be one of the major epic fantasy releases of the year.
Please note: You are only able to order The Republic of Thieves if you own the corresponding letter or number of the previous volume, Red Seas Under Red Skies. This exclusive order period will last roughly one month. We will announce via our email newsletter when the book is available for the general public to preorder
Important note: You must mention your letter or number in the comments section when checking out. We no longer have the letter/number sheets for the previous volume.
Locke and Jean barely escaped with their lives from what should have been the greatest heist of their career, in the port city of Tal Verrar. Now they head north, looking for sanctuary and an alchemist who can cure the poison that is slowly killing Locke. They find neither, but just when all their luck, money, and hope seem exhausted, they receive an offer from a power that has never had their best interests at heart: The Bondsmagi of Karthain.
In exchange for the chance that Locke might be saved, the Bondsmagi expect the two Gentlemen Bastards to rig an election in their home city of Karthain, and to work against opposition. The other side has already hired the services of Sabetha Belacoros, the one person in the world who might match Locke’s criminal skill, and the one person in the world who absolutely rules his heart.
Now it will be con artist against con artist in an election season that couldn’t be more crooked, all for the benefit of the mysterious Bondsmagi, who have plans within plans and secrets they’re not telling… at least not until it’s too late for the Gentlemen Bastards to do anything about it…
