My 3rd book: Final Stage: #SPFBO 16


FullSizeRender-10November 1st saw the start of the second stage of the SPFBO – the Self Published Fantasy Blog off organised by Mark Lawrence.  All the details can be found here.

Today I’m highlighting the third book that I will be reading for the SPFBO.  All the books have been drawn randomly. Book No 1: Shadow Soul by Caitlyn Davis.   Review here.  Second book Paternus by Dark Ashton (review here).  My next book is The Grey Bastards by Jonathan French.  Check it out below:

Such is the creed of the half-orcs dwelling in the Lot Lands. Sworn to hardened brotherhoods known as hoofs, these former slaves patrol their unforgiving country astride massive swine bred for war. They are all that stand between the decadent heart of noble Hispartha and marauding bands of full-blood orcs.

Jackal rides with the Grey Bastards, one of eight hoofs that have survived the harsh embrace of the Lots. Young, cunning and ambitious, he schemes to unseat the increasingly tyrannical founder of the Bastards, a plague-ridden warlord called the Claymaster. Supporting Jackal’s dangerous bid for leadership are Oats, a hulking mongrel with more orc than human blood, and Fetching, the only female rider in all the hoofs.

When the troubling appearance of a foreign sorcerer comes upon the heels of a faceless betrayal, Jackal’s plans are thrown into turmoil. He finds himself saddled with a captive elf girl whose very presence begins to unravel his alliances. With the anarchic blood rite of the Betrayer Moon close at hand, Jackal must decide where his loyalties truly lie, and carve out his place in a world that rewards only the vicious.

    I’m very intrigued by the character of Fetching (obviously I want to know more about the only woman rider!) and Oats, as I tend to love the “grim giant” type characters in fantasy. Hopefully you love this one, Lynn!

    The Grey Bastards sounds like a lot of fun, starting with their creed, and the idea of the huge swines as mounts is both amusing and terrifying… As for the cover, the guy pictured there reminds me somewhat of James Cameron’s Navii 🙂

      It’s a great cover and it sounds brilliant. Really looking forward to it.

    Nice, very nice. TGB is one of the books I’m going to be reading (BiblioSanctum is dividing the review load) so I can’t wait to hear what you think!

    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m looking forward to starting this one too. Plus, I love that cover!
      Lynn 😀
