    1. I just finished The Republic of Thieves and am desperate for the next installment of the Gentleman Bastard series. These books are insanely smart, absurdly funny, and have so many plot twists and HOLY SHIT moments that they're basically adrenaline in novel form.

    2. COVER REVEAL!!! And it was on March 4th! A WHOLE week ago. Some fan I am !!! How could I've missed this? And how could you, guys?!!! Yes, you(you know who you are)! Credits go to Vippi because I did see the news in her feed! Thanks, ragazza!Also, there are rumors for a "firm"(that's a tricky term when speaking of Scott Lynch) release date of the book(don't trust the July publication date posted here in GR; it's all bullocks, but read more details below):tor/blogs/2015/03/bff-ntlemenbastards/thor [...]

    3. Delayed again, April 2017. This is starting to make me angry. I swear it was July five seconds ago. AND NOW IT IS 2016!!! Nooooooooo.Why does this cover sucks? The first one was so beautiful*cries*I NEED THIS BOOK IN MY LIFE

    4. Take your time, Scott. As dreadful as waiting is, I’d much rather a good book that you put your heart and soul into than a rushed one. I’ll learn to deal with my impatience 😔

    5. Really hope this one has more schemes & thieving and less girls. Or at least less troubled and illogical girls. Book 3 was okay, but I really hope 4 picks up the pace again.

    6. I’ve only just finished The Republic of Thieves but I am so pumped to read this right now. It's such a great series, I can't wait to see where it goes in the future. I guess it’s another one to add to my highly anticipated fantasy longlist.

    7. Why do I always read (and love) fantasy book series where the authors take like ages for the next book to publish ???? I'm already waiting for years for The Doors of Stone, The Winds of Winter, Oathbringer and now The Thorn of Emberlain but they are all books I would wait 10+ years for, because I know they'll be great and good books take time. Still. I hate waiting.Edit August 3rd 2017 At least Oathbringer is coming out soon!

    8. *looks longingly out a window, a tear slowly falling down my freckled cheek* when will this book be published?

    9. I was just about to read it when WHAT DO YOU MEAN NOT RELEASED YET?!Just kidding. Take all the time you need Mr Lynch, but give me a masterpiece.--My review of The Lies of Locke Lamora.My review of Red Seas Under Red Skies.My review of Republic of Thieves.

    10. 08/172016. Delayed againI can't see the light at the end of the tunnel07/02September 17th???!05/05Cover released!!! :DWe have to wait till July, though.

    11. Was it as good as, say, The Way of Kings?Probably not. Yes, it was a very clever book. It wasn't boring and the pacing was great.But the thing is - I didn't like Locke or his crew all that much.I'm judging from the entire series now as it's been too long for me to make subtle distinctions but I know that I'm unlikely to pick up this next instalment.By the end of the third book I was feeling a little angry with Locke for being so star struck and pathetic around his love interest.I must say - I fe [...]

    12. The release date has my approval, the cover does not. Who are those armored goons? And will we witness Locke making fun of them?WAAAAAAAAAAAH I'M SO EXCITED FOR THE THORN OF EMBERLAIN! I LOVE YOU, LOCKE!

    13. At this point I am feeling really apathetic about this series. The many delays really turned me off. It boggles my mind that this one has nearly 1300 ratings at a 4.31 average rating, when it may as well take another year to reach store shelves if its history is any indicationI can't be alone with that frustration, right?

    14. February 2017:scottlynch78.tumblr/post/1WE ARE GOING TO HAVE AN IMPORTANT UPDATE AT THE END OF THE MONTH.I hope it'll be good news :)August 2016:BOOM! It has been delayed AGAIN.Let's see the positive aspect of this: I have more time to read book #3.

    15. Expected publication: October 2017Kurban olduğum İthaki, çabuk çevireceksin kitabı değil mi? Canım Buddy Read'lerimle seriyi okuduğum için çevirinin bir an önce çıkması lazım.

    16. Ok rude people, LISTEN UP. Someone made something you really enjoy, and instead of being grateful and taking it for what it is and accepting their writing process you moan and groan about YOUR needs. Art is not something you rush, and an artist who is a master of their craft is definitely not something to be taken for granted. SoBefore you write an all capslock post about how they owe you, please just don't. Realize you are excited, not frustrated, and keep it positive. That is all.

    17. Some day, The Thorn of Emberlain is going to be released so magnificently, so ambitiously, so overwhelmingly that the sky will light up and the moons will spin and the gods themselves will shit comets with glee. And I just hope I'm still around to see it.'Oh, please,' said Scott.'It'll never happen.';) But seriously. I need this book in my life.

    18. Well no mention of release date anywhere on the internetMan, a bit frustratedI mean, at least we should have something to look forward to But nothing

    19. Certainly my most anticipated read of 2016. No, my most anticipated read EVERS THAT MUCH.My life need some Locke and Jean, it's been too long !

    20. Sorry, what? This is getting pushed back *again*? And to a nebulous non-specified future date? I'm very happy for Lynch getting engaged and moving etc etc etc but LORD. I was so excited. CRUSHED.

    21. New update: This book will not be available in September. As of now, there is no release date available. You can check out Mr. Lynch's post on the issues extending the wait for this book here.*goes quietly into a corner to sob***************************Update: The Thorn of Emberlain WILL come out September 2016. Scott Lynch has confirmed it himself here.I'm so freaking excited I think I quit breathing.**********************Please Please please don't let this get pushed back again. I wants it. I [...]

    22. September? Really now?ETA: Okay, meanwhile publication got delayed till September 2019, according to . Funnily enough, proclaims the German translation should be available in February 2018. U-hu.Didn't it say "July" just a few days ago? And before that, didn't it say Ah, my. It's all about the antici-pation, I guess.
