'The long-awaited war has come in the sweeping conclusion to the Lot Lands trilogy - another irresistibly swashbuckling, swaggering, foul-mouthed fantasy from the author of The Grey Bastards' The Wall Street Journal

War has come to the Lot Lands - and Oats stands upon the frontline. The formidable armies on the horizon are bolstered by divine champions, dread sorcerers and gunpowder. But Oats has won impossible fights before. He's a thriceblood, after all, more orc than man. And he hasn't forgotten how to kill. He'll stack the bodies high for his chief and his brethren, if that's the price of freeing the Lots from human tyranny.

Besides, the invading forces are getting a damned sight more than they bargained for. They're not facing a handful of half-orc hoofs, but a true army - one forged from all the peoples of the Lots. At its head are Fetching, in full command of the ruinous power that runs through her veins, and Jackal, armed with the blessings of a dead god.

Brimming with epic battles, surprising sorcery and fiendish twists, The Free Bastards is the rousing final instalment to the Lot Lands trilogy that began with Jonathan French's vastly popular debut, The Grey Bastards.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An addictively readable - and undeniably cool - fantasy masterwork * Kirkus *
French has raised the bar in The True Bastards. If you're looking for a filthy, fierce, fun-fuelled read, then the Bastards have got you covered * Fantasy Hive *
[An] action-packed sequel . . . the story is filled with relentless action and powered by a cast of adeptly developed and emotionally appealing characters. . . . Imagine an outlaw biker gang of half-orcs riding giant war pigs and you've captured this saga's gloriously dirty soul -- KIRKUS
A gritty adventure with a fantastic, foul-mouthed voice and filthy, lovable characters in a wonderfully original world of half-orcs on giant hogs. Fans of Abercrombie's First Law or the soldierly banter of Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen will like this a lot
Jonathan French has to be lauded for his plot ingenuity, bawdry charm and vicious characters. The Grey Bastards has instantaneously catapulted him into my must-read list * Fantasy Book Critic *
A filthy, charismatic and frankly excellent read
An addictively readable - and undeniably cool - fantasy masterwork -- KIRKUS on THE GREY BASTARDS
A bloody good tale of battle, betrayal and war pigs -- Brian McClellan on THE GREY BASTARDS
The Grey Bastards dragged me in immediately. A bloody good tale of battles, intrigue, betrayal, duty and frickin' war pigs * Brian McClellan *
Jonathan French has to be lauded for his plot ingenuity, bawdry charm and vicious characters. The Grey Bastards has instantaneously catapulted him into my must-read list -- FANTASY BOOK CRITIC on THE GREY BASTARDS
French flips the fantasy script as the monsters become the good guys, fueling an action-packed, sneakily smart adventure. Half-orc and all badass, Jackal is a hero you won't soon forget * Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Alive and Infected *
I'd like to raise a tankard to The Grey Bastards' brilliance * Fantasy Faction *
I'd like to raise a tankard to The Grey Bastards' brilliance -- FANTASY FACTION on THE GREY BASTARDS
The Grey Bastards is a book that I just absolutely fell in love with . . . Because of this author's unique vision and his incredible talent, this one left a mark on me. I want more * Bookworm Blues *
A funny thing happens when reading The Grey Bastards. You're rolling along, smiling at the novelties on display, but then, almost without warning, you find yourself truly in the world French has created, and it all becomes wonderfully familiar and convincing. The world-building creates exactly the kind of seamless transition that makes fantasy literature compelling, informative, and just plain fun * R.A. Salvatore, New York Times bestselling author *
This is a filthy book, but it is a damn good one * Pornokitsch *
It's a wild ride on the hog, filled with brutality, battle, and bravery. It's coarse and crass and also loveable, and after this, I have high hopes for what French might do in the future * Biblitropic *
I f*cking loved this book. The Grey Bastards went down like a shot of good top-shelf tequila: warm and smooth, but with one hell of a spicy kick * Bibliosanctum *
