REVIEW: The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

The Lies of Locke Lamora is Oliver Twist meets Once Upon a Time in America, if it was about the Artful Dodger. It was a lot of fun with great dynamics between characters, ingenious plots and a very dislikable baddie. Whenever I read lists of the best fantasy books, The Lies of Locke Lamora is always right up there so I knew it was time I gave it a go and it did not disappoint!

“The only person who gets away with Locke Lamora games, is Locke, because we think the gods are saving him up for a really big death. Something with knives and hot irons … and fifty thousand cheering spectators.”
