2 böcker jag längtar efter som nu är mer eller mindre klara.

Så väldigt efterlängtad av mig, Lynch verkar inte ha haft det helt lätt privat nu på sistone och nu äntligen kommer snart bok 3 om gentlemannarövarna och deras upptåg. Hurra!


After their adventures on the high seas, Locke and Jean are brought back to earth with a thump. Jean is mourning the loss of his lover and Locke must live with the fallout of crossing the all-powerful magical assassins the Bonds Magi. It is a fall-out that will pit both men against Locke’s own long lost love. Sabetha is Locke’s childhood sweetheart, the love of Locke’s life and now it is time for them to meet again. Employed on different sides of a vicious dispute between factions of the Bonds Sabetha has just one goal – to destroy Locke for ever. The Gentleman Bastard sequence has become a literary sensation in fantasy circles and now, with the third book, Scott Lynch is set to seal that success.

Ian McDonald skriver om Istanbul 2029, Det kan inte bli annat än bra. Eller?

It begins with an explosion. Another day, another bus bomb. Everyone it seems is after a piece of Turkey. But the shock waves from this random act of twenty-first-century pandemic terrorism will ripple further and resonate louder than just Enginsoy Square.

Welcome to the world of The Dervish House—the great, ancient, paradoxical city of Istanbul, divided like a human brain, in the great, ancient, equally paradoxical nation of Turkey. The year is 2027 and Turkey is about to celebrate the fifth anniversary of its accession to the European Union, a Europe that now runs from the Arran Islands to Ararat. Population pushing one hundred million, Istanbul swollen to fifteen million, Turkey is the largest, most populous, and most diverse nation in the EU, but also one of the poorest and most socially divided. It’s a boom economy, the sweatshop of Europe, the bazaar of central Asia, the key to the immense gas wealth of Russia and central Asia. The Dervish House is seven days, six characters, three interconnected story strands, one central common core—the eponymous dervish house, a character in itself—that pins all these players together in a weave of intrigue, conflict, drama, and a ticking clock of a thriller.

Allt har jag oblygt snott från http://fantasyhotlist.blogspot.com/. Pat’s Fantasy hotlist som jag nu har början tappa tilltro till efter att han bisarrt nog skrev om Stieg Larssons böcker på sin blogg och gav de enligt mig, det sjuka betyget 10 av 10.  Jag har inte sett någon annan bok på hans blogg med det betyget, men smaken är som baken, Salander å co är kanske exotiska på andra sidan atlanten?
