The True Bastards
The Lot Lands Book 2
Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
By Jonathan French
Publisher: Orbit Books | Crown Publishing
Release Date: October 8, 2019

In fact, this second book expanded the series in directions I could never have imagined. Curious? Well, of course you are! Read on for more reasons why you are going to be rushing to grab your own copy!
