*shudders*I ’ m sure Locke and Jean can ’ t drink enough Lashani Blue to get their warning out of their heads.
At irst I wasn ’ t all too sure if I liked that change but damn did Scott Lynch persuade me to board that new ship!
I can ’ t… I can ’ t stand it – “ I swear the Locke at the end of this ook had my heart bleeding!
*lol* I loved to watch his journey and how he changed during the book.
*lol* ” Oh, ” sighed Jean.
“ ell, aren ’ t you the clever little bastard. ” “ Yes on all three counts, actually. ” ” Captain Orrin Ravelle, ” said Locke, drawing a dagger and placing it against the captain ’ s hroat.
You stop in and let them know I ’ m in the neighbourhood! ” ” Once a Big Lie was let out in the world, it seemed to grow on its own and needed little tending or worry to bend to the situation. ” Jean Tannen: ” When I get this door open, you ’ re aliv, Jean! ” “ When you get that door open?
XD I think Jean changed a lot in this memoi too and I really liked his character arc.
Jean tried to build something new and watched out for Locke which is so typical for him.
Ezri was so unbelievabl and I ’ m very thankful Scott Lynch decided to invent her character and to make her a part of this ook!
I loved how unapologetic she was and seriously, when I grow up I want to be like her!
*lol* She could be very compassionate and gentle though and I can ’ t believe it had to end like that!!!
I really liked that she had two children and was a caring and loving mother as well as a total badass when it came to boarding an enemy ship!
I think Locke needed an honest friend like Zamira and someone that brought out the best in him.
At the beginnin of the book Locke and Jean left her ship but I really hope that she ’ ll reappear in one of the variou ooks.
The world sure as hell needs more characters like Captain Drakasha!!! Stragos – The Archon: ” The Bondsmagi distort our world with their very presence.
I must admit he got the etter of Locke and Jean when he made them drink his wine, but if it wouldn ’ t have been for his dangerous little games he would have been no threat to them.
His plan to use Locke and Jean in order to stir the pirates was pretty half-baked and it was no surprise that it didn ’ t work out.
Those two didn ’ t mess around; they were a force to be reckoned with and definitely even more of a threat to Locke and Jean than Stragos ever was.
Then again he might have thought he wasn ’ t deservin of his friendship anymore- because let ’ s be blunt here- he truly acted like an idiot at the eginning of the books.
It certainly wasn ’ t the best way but it ’ s probably the only one Locke ever knew.
Still, with Jean ’ s love interest there came an interesting and new dynamic into their riendship and I think Locke had to get used to his best friend being in love.
;-) Jean ’ s priorities might have changed over the ourse of the novel but this didn ’ t mean that he was wrong.
Hell, at the beginnin he wanted this kind of life as well and was ready to take a shot at it with Ezri and Jean.
<333 Jean means everything to him and is his family and after all the things he did for him he just wanted to make sure that he’d be alright.
“ Which is always, more or less. ” ” He realized that he was strangely disquieted that Jean hadn ’ t followed him, relentlessly at his heels, looking after him as always. ” ” It is a favour, ” said Locke.
Because you actually deserve it. ” “ I don ’ t understand any of this, ” Jean whispered.
Maybe you could do better – “ Locke grinned to let Jean know that there was no actual need to knock his brains out of his kull.
She gave her life for her frien and family just like Jean would have done.
“ Hold fast, and sooner or later you ’ ll always find what you ’ re after. ” Conclusion: When I thought that Scott Lynch couldn ’ t surprise me anymore he proved me wrong and took this book in an entirely different direction.
This nove had everything I love: Intriguing and clever characters, a deadly gamble, a heist, pirates, strong female MCs, an amazing plot and last but not least a wonderful world I could get lost in.
