The dynamism and the graceful flow in The Lies of Locke Lamora by ~AKRU make it absolutely engaging and leave you wondering what he might be up to and how the story will unfold! ( Suggested by Ginryuzaki and Featured by rydi1689 )

Just finished reading books 1, 2, and 3 of this series, and I love it! Your artwork captures Locke very well. And it's generally awesome to boot.

Would you recommend the books?

gento70 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2013
Definitely, I would recommend the Gentlemen Bastard series (The Lies of Locke Lamora is only the first book) to anybody.  The action is intense, the characters are all really well done and fleshed out, even the minor characters.

It's like the most perfect mix between Robin Hood and Ocean's Eleven with a hint of magic.  Don't worry if you aren't into books aimed at a younger demographic, like harry potter and such. It's for people 18+, not because it's sexual or anything, but just the overall language, tone, and themes are something young teens and children wouldn't get.

If you do decide to read The Lies of Locke Lamora and you love, just know that the second book is equally amazing, just in different ways and may seems better at times.

I'm loving the Gentlemen Bastards series. This is a good depiction of how I imagined Locke and the city of Camorr.
Well done and congratulations of the Daily Deviation!

Is that Jean in the background too?
