Scott Lynch's THORN OF EMBERLAIN

292 posts in this topic

Confirmed release date: 22 September

Apparently Gollancz could have brought it out earlier, but then since Scott is in the UK in the September they hit on the idea of cross-marketing it and doing a book tour when he's over. So it looks like it's a lock.

Great news! Better give the first three a re-read before the next one comes along.

Two sentence summary... 

Locke is a clever mess.
Jean Tannen is the most bad ass character ever written.

Sabetha and Jean hook up!

Just so Locke is confused as he assumed this was his story.

What? You don't like eBooks? Say it isn't so, Scot! I never would have guessed you felt that way.

Really good news - I hope Lynch has well and truly put the darkness behind him.

If that happens, I'll riot. It would really be the worst thing it can happen.

I have two predictions for this book, and neither is good:

1) Sabetha won't be present in this book.
2) Jean will die. It will be shit, but deaths have the ability of making the story stronger, and that death will change Locke completely, maybe even awakening his old powers.

I hope Jean doesn't die just because I think this series needs more protagonist characters, not fewer.  I'd like to see a reformed Gentlemen Bastards with 5 or so people like in the first book.
