  • Maps of Camorr

    Camorr, on the Iron Sea, is the primary setting for The Lies of Locke Lamora. Each smaller picture below links to a larger image (about 200 KB apiece); feel free to download 'em if you like.

  • My original color version of the map of Camorr, circa 2004. This map is mostly accurate; a few things had to be moved for the final version. And I had to remember to add a canal, so the poor people of Camorr wouldn't be forced to send cargo barges up a six-story waterfall.

  • The map of Camorr from the Bantam Spectra edition of Lies, by Robert Bull. This version is fully accurate and congruent with what is described in the novel.

    Maps of Tal Verrar and the Sea of Brass

    Tal Verrar, on the Sea of Brass, is a primary setting for Red Seas Under Red Skies.

  • The city-state of Tal Verrar, longtime trade and military rival of Camorr, and more or less the dominant power in the Sea of Brass. Also the most westerly of the Therin city-states.

  • Vel Virazzo, Salon Corbeau, and Port Prodigal in the Ghostwind Isles are also major points of action in Red Seas Under Red Skies.
