it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction, fantasy

Lynch doesn't disappoint in this follow up to The Lies of Locke Lamora. The book seamlessly picks up directly after the Lies.

This book still gets 5 stars from me, however I do have two complaints... One, I am not a huge fan of nautical themed books. So the parts where Locke and Jean are learning how to pilot a ship, is well, a little boring. However, Lynch does manage to pull back and forth between Stragos' orders and Locke & Jean's current situation. Two, I missed the flashbacks with Father Chains. There is only one, very brief flashback.

Some of the things I really loved about the book are of course the relationship between Jean and Locke, as well as Lynch's ability to twist and turn a plot. Again, as with Lies, I had no idea where things were going to turn up and I loved that about this story.

I can't wait for the next installment (sadly I will have to until January 2010).
