Publisher's Summary

He's back! The long-awaited return of the most exciting new commercial fantasy writer of the 21st century. 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.

Good but not my favourite.

My least favourite so far but still quite enjoyable. I didn't enjoy the romantic leads in this book as much as the last. Locke is at his best outwitting opponents, not trying to understand women.

The hero is kind of a creepy stalker

What would have made The Republic of Thieves better?

The character development is very poor. I can't tell the difference between the characters at 15 and 30. The romance is based on the hero following and continually debasing himself to his love until she gives in and admits her love. According to this book stalking works.

More Please!

Would you listen to The Republic of Thieves again? Why?

Most certainly. I re-listened to the first two books in preparation for this and I look forward to listening to them again in the future.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Republic of Thieves?

Without mentioning spoilers, I'd say it has to be the parts of the book that look at Locke's childhood, especially the part where Sabetha gets caught trying to steal an emerald necklace... those of you who've read the book know why!

Have you listened to any of Michael Page’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I really enjoy Michael's work. He does some nice rough voices which really add to the reading. This time around he's just as good as ever.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are some strong revelations about Locke's past that really hit you hard. Don't want to spoil them, just read it.

A really great series - worth every second

If you could sum up The Republic of Thieves in three words, what would they be?

imaginative, exciting, gripping

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Republic of Thieves?

When the final election votes were announced in Carthain, I was sure that two things were going to happen with different characters, and I got them both wrong, which made the story so much more interesting. in addition there was a final sting in the tail which was totally unexpected. Bring on the next book.

Have you listened to any of Michael Page’s other performances? How does this one compare?

no, but im looking forward to more as I like his style

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, though I had it in 3 parts and listened to it in my car on different journeys

Any additional comments?

the only downside was I really liked the "5 year" part of the story more than the "republic of thieves" background, even though both were wonderfully written and great in their own right. I could see the link and understood the purpose but I just wanted more about the election skullduggery

beautiful and masterful reading.

Some very intricate and complex ideas to get across regarding acting and voice resonance with Locke and his friend that the Audible narrator conveys perfectly. a true pro. The fact that the story is so brilliant and engrossing also helps!
