The Lies of Locke LamoraBook - 2006
From Library Staff
Swashbuckling anti-heroes set in a somewhat grim magical world.
Librarymans Aug 26, 2010
Great writing and interesting characters mark this book out from the sea of Tolkien imitators. I also like the fact that the main character is an anti-hero. A true "Magnificent Bastard", (His group is even named the Gentlemen Bastards)

“Throwing blondes at Locke Lamora was not unlike throwing lettuce at sharks.”
“I don't have to beat you. I don't have to beat you. I just have to keep you here... until Jean shows up.”
