I started the Darkcargo Explorer as a way to challenge myself and Darkcargo’s readers to expand our reading horizons. I often find myself stuck in science fiction and fantasy, since that’s what I like to read more than anything else, but that mono-genre reading comes at the expense of reading other really great stuff like some of the classics or a fantastic mystery– or even, *GASP*, non-fiction!
However, when invited to join these other great book bloggers in a Read-A-Long for a very well-liked Fantasy that’s been on my TBR for too long, well, heck! I’ll jump back into Fantasy with both feet, and give myself “Explorer” credit by putting this one in the category of “An Author Younger than You Are”. Heh! How’s that for rationalization?
Would you like to join us?
We’re going to read The Lies of Locke Lamora and the following Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch in anticipation of Book #3 in the series being published sometime in the fall (hopefully).
How does this work?
Go get yourself a copy of The Lies of Locke Lamora from your bookstore or library of choice, and report back here on March 1 to begin reading.
These blogs (below) will all be trading questions and discussions as we read along in the series. You can sign up for email notifications of these updates by commenting below, or by subscribing by email to any of these blogs.

Will I like this book?
I dunno. I haven’t read it either. I have read the first bit of it though, and I like the author’s writing style. Know, though, that it is violent, is set in a pseudo-Victorian-London world in which bad things happen to small children, and there’s a lot of cussin’. So, if this is not for you, then this is not the RAL for you, ok?
