After I bought this book, I read somewhere that it was the Ocean's Eleven in a fantastic setting.
So I decided to let the Jungle Books rest for a while and started to read this book..
It seems that the rest was short, because I couldn't get enough of Locke Lamora and finished this book with in 3 days. I guess the book gave me all the nourishment I needed.
Definitely a Must-Read.
The only problem I have was the Magicians of Karthain, the only real magicians. They are so uber powerful that a ruler simply cannot or should not live without one.
