“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.  Every Wednesday we get to highlight a book that we’re really looking forward to.  I just had to go there – I so want this book.  The Thorn of Emberlain by Scott Lynch.  Hopeful for a 2016 release (maybe July) – if anybody wants to chuck me a bone and tell me a confirmed release date then that would make my day!

8074907Locke 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..

    Oh crikey yes this. There’s a read-along suggested (I saw it over on twitter, I will dig out the link) to re-read Lies, Red Seas and Republic next spring in the run up to Thorn. I think I’ll have to… 🙂

      Yes, I could certainly use a refresh of Republic. I’ll have to go and look it up.

    Hmmm, a cover quote by GRRM no less. That’s impressive! As is the cover! Here’s mine: http://editingeverything.com/blog/2015/12/02/wow-good-money-by-jm-green/

    Me too! Assuming that I like the first three books 😛 I’ve heard July also for the release, but “confirmation”.

  7. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Gah yes, want this book right now! Fingers crossed too for July 2016 to finally be the month of the bastards 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yay – who thought we’d be wishing for bastards eh! I hope July is the month. 😀
