'IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A FILTHY, FIERCE, FUN-FUELLED READ, THEN THE BASTARDS HAVE GOT YOU COVERED' Fantasy Hive

Following the runaway success of Jonathan French's critically acclaimed fantasy adventure The Grey Bastards comes book two in the Lot Lands series - The True Bastards.

Fetching was once the only female rider in the Lot Lands. Now she is the leader of her own hoof, a band of loyal half-orcs sworn to her command. But the hoof she inherited is on the brink of collapse.

Tested to the breaking point by the burdens of leadership, Fetching battles desperately to stave off famine, desertion and the scorn of the other half-orc chieftains, even as orcs and humans alike threaten the Lots' very existence.

Then an old enemy finds a way to strike at her from beyond the grave - and suddenly only one faint hope for salvation remains.

'[An] action-packed sequel . . . . Imagine an outlaw biker gang of half-orcs riding giant war pigs and you've captured this saga's gloriously dirty soul' Kirkus

Praise for the series:

'An addictively readable - and undeniably cool - fantasy masterwork'Kirkus

'A gritty adventure with a fantastic, foul-mouthed voice' Django Wexler

'A bloody good tale of battle, betrayal and war pigs' Brian McClellan

'Jonathan French has to be lauded for his plot ingenuity, bawdry charm and vicious characters.' Fantasy Book Critic

'I'd like to raise a tankard to The Grey Bastards' brilliance' Fantasy Faction
