BRING ON THE ORCS . . .
What do you get when you cross:
Orcs + visceral action + a filthy, sardonic voice + giant war pigs…?
A SHEDLOAD OF BADASSERY – that’s what.
Today we’re officially launching the cover for THE GREY BASTARDS (UK|ANZ) by Jonathan French – designed by artist and photographer Larry Rostant, along with Little, Brown Book Group creative director Duncan Spilling.
THE GREY BASTARDS is a debut that’s down, dirty and damn good fun. It’s a must-read for fantasy fans in 2018.
You might have heard of this book already because it won Mark Lawrence’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off – meaning it was selected by a panel of top fantasy bloggers as the winner from a shortlist of exceptional fantasy submissions.
You might have heard some of the things people have been saying about it:
‘Frankly excellent’ Mark Lawrence
‘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. The Grey Bastards has instantaneously catapulted him into my must-read list’ Fantasy Book Critic
‘Fans of Abercrombie’s The First Law . . . will like this a lot’ Django Wexler
‘I’d like to raise a tankard to The Grey Bastards’ brilliance’ Fantasy Faction
Or you might have heard the Bastard’s war cry echoing through the interwebs: LIVE IN THE SADDLE, DIE ON THE HOG!
Whether you know about this book already or are just encountering it for the first time, one thing’s for sure: once you join the Bastards, you’ll never look back.
