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 orc than human blood and Fetching the only female rider in all the hoofs When the troubling app. The first Grey Bastards were potters named not for our skin but from the dry clay which covered it We knew fire and heat and mud until the day we rode into battle on the backs of hogs that knew only the yoke of a supply wagon That day we became warriors We were carving a path to freedom though we didn t know it then Carving it with swords fallen from the hands of our fleeing masters carving it through the flesh of our orc fathers The Lot Lands a Mad Max zone that lies between the Orcs Thicks the Centaurs Horse Cocks and the Frails humans is defended by bands of Half Orcs who are the only thing standing between the Frails and imminent invasion of Thicks In the last great Orc invasion the Half Orcs were pulled from the mines the fields the blazing kitchens and given swords and war hogs They threw them into the front lines but the Frails knew that their slaves were not going to be enough They developed a plague They purposely infected hundredsOnly a handful of Thrice Orcs survived the infection but these contagious survivors on the verge of madness from the disease became the deadliest weapon against the Thicks They were the smallpox contaminated blankets to end the war By the time Jackal joins the Hoof along with his best friends Oats and Fetching the times have changed All but one of the contagious Orcs have died many by madness induced suicide but one still remains The ClaymasterHe is the leader of the Grey Bastards and needless to say for a young aggressive impatient Half Orc like Jackal he has had enough of the addled directions of the pus dripping mummy wrapped corpse asshole smelling presence of his leader He is ready to make his move The Half Orcs are all bastards They are the result of rape between a Thick and a Frail No Human woman in her right mind would bed down with an Orc by consent They are ugly cruel dimwitted creatures that make even a caveman look like a civilized man of elegant culture Once born these half breeds are sent to the Lot Lands where the very best of them will be molded into warriors to join up and become sworn members of one of the bands of Lot Lands protectors Even though the Frails need them they still look down upon the Half Orcs as an abomination Naturally there is a lot of rage lurking in the hearts of those less than a generation away from being raised under the lash Jackal has only a limited understanding of the history of The Lot Lands He has been too worried about surviving and achieving his most precious goal to become a member of The Grey Bastards The moment life seems to be on a trajectory upward something usually explodes out of nowhere to send everything sideways A shit storm of unfortunate events has Jackal dealing with a series of crisis situations each one dire than the last Jackal finds himself outlawed from all that he loves including his friends His friend Fetching is one of the most interesting characters in the book She is the only woman to be allowed to join The Grey Bastards and frankly she only makes it because Jackal and Oats insist on her capabilities It doesn t take long for her to prove to everyone that she than deserves a position with the band She has a talent for killing She is gorgeous which keeps all the boys in a steady state of arousal She is frustrated that being good enough to be a Grey Bastard is not enough without the help of Jackal I think a lot of women can certainly identify with that frustration She will prove pivotal as the final chess pieces move on the boardBetrayal conniving sorcerers whorehouse treachery magical arm bones swamp land slugs the size of refrigerators conspiracies madness moon mad Centaurs halfling zealots kidnapped elves and let s not forget a 40000 member Orc army about to descend on The Lot Lands The fight scenes are incredibly vivid What s not to love This is an absolutely filthy book with absolutely nothing held sacred so if you are PC sensitive you might keep that in mind when considering reading this book Half Orcs will be Half Orcs There is never a good spot to stop reading this book The plot is so riveting I was compelled to read large chunks every time I curled up next to a war hog and immersed myself in the blistering unforgiving Lot Lands If you enjoy Mark Lawrence s books you will be thrilled to find another writer who will add some pulpy blood spilling sword swaggering whore shagging Orc splitting goodness to your reading entertainmentLive in the saddle DIE ON THE HOG I want to thank Kathleen uinlan and Crown Publishing for sending me a free copy in exchange for a gore
