really liked it
Read from February 20 to April 21, 2012

I started this book with The Sword and Laser a couple of months ago, but got way behind. I finally managed to finish it tonight.

It's about an orphan boy (yet another orphan boy) who becomes a part of a group of thieves/con artists called the Gentleman Bastards. While they're in the middle of one of their schemes, they get caught up in a power struggle in the criminal underworld. Bad things happen.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked how the story went back and forth between the past and the present. We learned a lot about the main characters by seeing glimpses of their pasts. I'm sure there's more to learn, like one mystery that's mentioned throughout the book, but not revealed to the reader by the end. I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up the next book in the series, but not right away.

I really want to read something with wizards and soldiers soon.
