The Republic of Thieves

The Gentleman Bastard Sequence, Book Three

By Scott Lynch

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

A poisoning. An election to rig. A partnership to restore . . . the third in the Gentleman Bastard sequence is a superb read for fans of GAME OF THRONES.

After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins, the Bonds Magi.

It is a fallout that will pit both men against Locke's own long-lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds, Sabetha has just one goal - to destroy Locke for ever.

The Gentleman Bastard sequence has become a literary sensation in fantasy circles and now, with the third book, Scott Lynch is set to seal that success.

Harry Keogh, the Necroscope, the man who can talk to the dead, the Earth's greatest vampire hunter, has been searching for his wife and infant son, gone missing during Harry's war against the vampires. This obsession has left him open to subtle influence by an ancient vampire, Radu. Entombed in amber, trapped in undeath, Radu plans for his resurrection and plots the destruction of other vampires who might challenge his supremacy. Thus, Radu's enemies are now Harry's - and Harry cannot properly defend himself. His powers - his deadspeak and his ability to transport himself through the Mobius Continuum - are locked away in the recesses of his vampire-clouded mind. But Harry is not without allies, living and dead. E-Branch, the psychic spy organisation, is worried about Harry. So is Harry's long-dead Ma, and the ancient philosopher and prophet Nostradamus, whose centuries-old quatrains make eerie sense in the modern world. Right now, Harry Keogh doesn't even know he's the Necroscope. But Earth's teeming dead won't let him forget them for long - and won't let him forget that Radu and his vampire kind are humanity's deadliest enemies.
