My Review of The True Bastards by Jonathan French

Our favorite Bastards are back, now lead by Fetching, and are in a bad way. With the Kiln gone, the True Bastards (renamed from the Grey Bastards), fight starvation and terrifying threats, old and new. How will they survive? With grit and sheer determination, that's how!

I loved The Grey Bastards, and Jonathan French has done it again. This is a stellar second novel, terrifically unique and exciting. It moves at breakneck speed, with brutal action and epic battles. The worldbuilding just keeps getting richer, deeper, and more unique in this series—and you are in for some shocking, wonderful, and terrifying surprises.

French has dug deep with this one, creating connections to events and characters from the first book that I never saw coming, some of which I wouldn't even have thought possible, but he makes them work in the most amazing ways.

If you liked The Grey Bastards, you are going to lose your shit with this incredible follow-up. I sure did!
