Republic of Thieves release, and Read Along!
Posted October 8, 2013on:
If you live in the US, today is the day you can get your hands on The Republic of Thieves, the third volume in Scott Lynch’s Gentleman Bastard sequence. No surprise, I loved it with one quibble that now I get to discuss.
And if you live in Boston, you could go to the big book launch party at Pandemonium Books tonight! Pretty awesome, right?
but hey, it gets better.
Republic of Thieves read along!
Already read the book off Netgalley? no problem. You know you want to read it again! Going to read the novel in the next 4 days? No problem you know you want to read it again!
