The True Bastards Read ¼ 6 Ains 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 remain. The Lot Lands shaped you and often its molding hands were cruel But any form that survived its touch was one better suited to endure its next caress next crushing fist It mattered not at all that you might not enjoy what you became What mattered was that you lived The True Bastards by Jonathan French is the much anticipated seuel to The Grey Bastards which was published by Orbit last year This seuel offers the same gritty treacherous and filthy world of the first book but exceeds it with an elaborate bold plot and downright awesome characterisationThe True Bastards picks up shortly after the finale of the first book The Bastards are on the brink of utter ruin they are starving weak and if that wasn t bad enough they have creatures and other clans intent on annihilating them Fetch the female half orc is their new leader but for how long Can she find a solution to save her hoof And when a new bigger threat to The Lot Lands emerges can she uncover the truth behind it all With all this burden upon her Fetch certainly has her work cut out and finding a way to be the best leader she can for her loyal hoof riders is certainly no easy taskI ll start by mentioning what I love most about this series which would definitely have to be the world building The Lot Lands is not exactly what you would call a picturesue place to live and this second novel further establishes that fact The Lot s brutal scorching terrain is filled with blood thirsty centaurs volatile elves orcs ravenous hyenas and human military forces that believe their rule is supreme Our story centres around The True Bastards hoof a ragtag of foul mouthed brash half orcs who ride hogs known as Barbarians Although they seem savage on the surface they are in fact intelligent and incredibly endearing with their bond towards each other Underneath it all they work tirelessly to sustain their clan I m so impressed with how amazingly epic French has created this biker gang esue world it was frankly so much fun to be immersed within itNow if I m being honest I didn t think I would enjoy The True Bastards uite as much as I did with The Grey Bastards I wasn t overly keen on Fetch in the first book and knowing that she would be the main character in the seuel felt kind of disappointing I WAS WRONG Fetch was such a superb character She showed an abundance of strength courage and she had such a fiery attitude every time she was humiliated or degraded especially by males it truly was a pleasure to see her put them in their place Fuck she had such a way with words I am Fetching leader of the half orc hoof known as the True Bastards I need to know who you cocksuckers are and what you are doing in the fucking Lots Aw hells Mead said under his breathHowever throughout the book we see that Fetch is than just her hardened exterior as she illustrated her caring and loyal side too In fact all of the Bastards appeared to be rough neck brutes but at their core they were genuinely charming towards one another This is where French really made this seuel into something uite special because he managed to greatly increase the depth of each character Mead Polecat Shed Snake Hoodwink and my beloved Jackal Oats and Fetch all made an incredible cast of friends who I became so attached to by the end One of my favourite scenes was when the Bastards were playing games with the children from their orphanage in a lake The children were reluctant to wash as children are and so to entice them into the water they made a sport of it This scene just perfectly cut through all the grimness of the book and showed such a beautiful light hearted side to each one of themI m just going to briefly mention here that much in the style of The Grey Bastards the level of profanity sexual references including that of genitalia and crude behaviour is just as high in this book Personally I found it entertaining as it created some cracking banter and much humour to again juxtaposition the darker scenes I also felt it rightly fits this world that French has created where the half orcs are carnal by nature However I realise not every reader is going to be comfortable with it so I think it s important to know this before diving inSo what else made this book a remarkable read Well that resides in the action seuences I previously found with the first book that there was a bit too much politics introduced and at times I felt this became overly complex and confusing In the True Bastards French aptly delivers a balance between the politics which is still central to the plot but brought clarity and in between those sections we also get exceptional combat scenes Towards the end when the Bastards were reunited with two of their most fiercest deadliest riders to face a few formidable foes that was a fantastic game changer for me My attention turned from intrigued to holy sheeeeet to please don t let anyone die to fucking hell I can t put this book down How dare you make me feel so many things for orcs

The True Bastards Read ¼ 6 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 in the year since she took power the True Bas. The True Bastards by Jonathan French is a book I reuested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary Last year I read The Grey Bastards and of the 800 books I read this book stood out as my favorite So when I saw this second book I really hoped they would let me read it The last book was centered around the half orcs group they call a hoof and this good calls themselves The Grey BastardsThis group has some of the same people but they have the first woman half orc chief The hoof lives in the same Lot as before but they call themselves The True Bastards This job is not easy for a male to be riding a giant mean tusked hog A hog big enough to carry a half orc long distances The female chief has to ride fight pull and shoot a bow knife fight and be totally fearless to live in a hoof but so to be the chief The Lots is a hard life The food is scarce lots of enemies the land barren All the good depends if the chief s decisionsThis is a very action filled book that holds nothing back If you are offended by swear words even implied ones this is not for you This is what it would really be like ifThat s why I like it French make this world and characters so real I think my favorite character is Polecat he is paler than the other half orcs and very uiet on his feet and a good sniper Bad guys are dead and they don t know it yet This is non stop action page turner from the beginning My emotions were everywhere There are lots of great creatures in here too Elves trolls orcs snake like creatures sorcerers and centaurs The worst are humans There is so much that goes on in here It is a must read Truly another winning book Love the cover
