THE GODS ARE BASTARDS

Outstanding fantasy

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Oct 12, 2014: Update Dec 31 2014: I’ve now been following this serial for several months – it’s very compelling, the writing quality is high, and the updates are very generous and consistent (highly dedicated author). It’s become evident there’s considerable depth to this story: background, plot, and characters. This serial is based off a fairly standard fantasy genre, with its own unique set of twists and takes on the world, yet it is a standout in the field. A great choice for anyone looking for a new fantasy serial to follow.
