Worst of all, the inner vault is guarded by a live dragon, attended by fifty naked women armed with poisoned spears, each of them sworn to die in Requin's service. All redheads." We recap books (Why? Well you know when the next book in a series is about to come out and you can't remember all the main details of the previous books? That's what we are here for! Catch up on the parts that slipped your mind so you will be ready for the next one.) I also felt that this book got incredibly preachy at points- which is kind of a killjoy for a novel that has two thieves for heroes. Lynch decided that he needed to push some kind of Robin Hood, working class agenda to make his heroes seem morally superior to everyone else. Nobody is reading this book for justice for the lower classes, Lynch. However, like all the best epics, this is really a story about friendship, recovery, hardship, sorrow, and loss. The author knows his business and plays most of the genre’s tropes straight, subverting them only to make a point about honor and justice. Most of the time when outlaw characters “live by a code” it’s just an arbitrary mess of personal prejudices. Here, they struggle with the right thing versus the sensible thing over and over again.

Red Seas Under Red Skies Quotes by Scott Lynch - Goodreads Red Seas Under Red Skies Quotes by Scott Lynch - Goodreads

On top of that, a lot of people want nothing more than for you to write your first book over again… because that's what they know and love. But you *can't* do that, because you only get one beginning. sighs* I adored them so much! They were really damn cute and I found myself grinning when they interacted. Yes, they were that sweet! They were a fine match indeed which made it even sadder that Ezri died while saving them all. That woman was so perfect for Jean, I swear! She gave her life for her friends and family just like Jean would have done. And I think the worst thing about it all is that Jean can’t even be angry at her because if given the chance he would have done exactly the same thing. >_< I’m actually kind of pissed off myself and have an axe to grind with Lynch as well! How dare you to introduce such a great woman just to kill her off again? It’s not fair!! *sniff* I shipped them really hard but I also knew that it wouldn’t last. Truth be told I was afraid Ezri would die the moment Jean really fell for her. It was too good to be true. T_T This is one of the most enjoyable first novels I've ever read. I'd listen to Scott Lynch tell lies all day long."

We get to explore a cool new piece of the world. There are characters that I know and love, being very true to themselves while still growing and changing and coming into conflict with each other and the world. There is wonderful craft here. And brilliant dialogue, as before. Wit and humor both. All that remains,” said Requin, “is for your other judge to concur that you are still a risk worth taking.”

I do not expect to change your mind but i hope that you will at least consider that I and others will not be buying your work because of these issues. I have been reading science fiction and fantasy for years and i know that I speak for a great many people. I hope you might stop to think about the sales you will lose because you want to bring your political corectness and foul language into fantasy. if we wanted those things we could go to the movies. Think about this! They kissed for the sort of endless moment that only exists between lovers whose lips are still new territory to one another.” There are several major problems with Red Seas Under Red Skies. The plot takes a number of abrupt turns for no apparent reason other than, perhaps, the author growing bored with the previous plot thread.

Shit no, that's just to confuse them. Then you kill them while they're standing there looking at you funny.”

I mention all of this because this second time through, I found myself wondering what my problem was the first time. Because honestly, the book is good. Difficult. “Difficult” and “impossible” are cousins often mistaken for one another, with very little in common.’ And I miss them,” he said, his voice nearly a whisper. “Gods, I miss them. It’s my fault they’re dead. I can’t… I can’t stand it –“ In 2010, I lost a marriage but gained a cat, a charming ball of ego and fuzz known as Muse (Musicus Maximus Butthead Rex I). Kill the Ones You Love: Jean must kill Ezri because she is burned so badly that she is dying in agonyits darkly humorous - oh my gosh. the banter! the jokes! the quips! the characters are so well-written and their interactions are always memorable. You don't like it? Don't buy my books. Get your own fictional universe. Your cabbage-water vision of worldbuilding bores me to tears.
