NY Librarian recommends Gentleman Bastard series

Joshua Soule, Senior Librarian at the New York Public Library’s Spuyten Duyvil branch, published a list of recommended books based on favorite Game of Thrones characters. If you like Petyr Baelish’s conniving, Locke Lamora is for you!

Who hasn’t found themselves rooting for Lord Littlefinger, even just a little? Devious, wily, cunning, diabolical are all adjectives for our favorite Westerosian bad boy. They also describe the protagonist of Scott Lynch’s Gentlemen Bastards [sic] series, Locke Lamora. Locke is raised as a supreme con artist by Father Chains, set on a path to balance the scales of life against the wealthy and powerful. He is Baelish with morals and loyalty to his friends.
