The Thorn of Emberlain to Be Published in the UK in Fall 2016

Gollancz has posted an exciting update on its blog about Scott Lynch’s hotly anticipated fourth Gentleman Bastards book: The Thorn of Emberlain will be published in the UK sometime in September 2016, to coincide with Lynch’s UK tour and his appearance as a Guest of Honor at Fantasycon-by-the-Sea.

“England, I will see you in September,” Lynch tweeted yesterday. “Everyone else, you can have a book, too.” With previous Gentleman Bastard installments bringing Locke Lamora into the worlds of the con (The Lies of Locke Lamora), pirates (Red Seas Under Red Skies), and politics (The Republic of Thieves), now he’s going to war:

Locke Lamora, thief, con-man, pirate, political deceiver must take on his most challenging role yet as a soldier…

A new chapter for Locke and Jean and finally the war that has been brewing in the Kingdom of the Marrows flares up and threatens to capture all in its flames. And all the while Locke must try to deal with the disturbing rumours about his past that have been revealed.

Fighting a war when you don’t know the truth of right and wrong is one thing. Fighting a war when you don’t know the truth of yourself is quite another. Particularly when you’ve never been that good with a sword anyway…
