Cover Art: The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

The new UK cover of Scott Lynch's The Republic of Thieves is outstanding. The bloody daggers and the name of the book are a nice touch too. The two characters definitely create a creepy atmosphere. I especially like the male mask.


After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins the Bonds Magi. It is a fall-out that will pit both men against Locke's own long lost love. Sabetha is Locke's childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke's life and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds Sabetha has just one goal - to destroy Locke for ever. The Gentleman Bastard sequence has become a literary sensation in fantasy circles and now, with the third book, Scott Lynch is set to seal that success.
