The official cover for Scott Lynch’s new book has been released! The Gentleman Bastard series varies a lot in quality; the first two (The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies) were swiftly-paced, funny, and very, very entertaining, while the third, The Republic of Thieves, meanders so much that after a month I have still not been able to get past the first few chapters. But this fantasy series about a trickster thief and con artist and sometimes his band of scheming cohorts is one of the better reads in the genre out there, so I’m excited at the announcement of this book, particularly since war could be just what the series needs to inject a blast of energy and urgency. Book is projected to release in spring 2015. P.S. If you don’t follow Scott Lynch on Tumblr yet, you should.

That cover is beautiful! I love the colors, especially the way the red plays off of the armor.
Yes, exactly! It’s so striking, even for fantasy book covers which tend to be colorful
