The Maleficent Seven

We rated this book:


On the eve of victory, Black Herran, the infamous demonologist, abandoned her armies. For the last forty years she has been able to live in peaceful anonymity as the town elder, Dalia, but a new enemy is about to end her comfortable life. The powerful Lucent empire has been moving through the lands, slaughtering anyone and anything that gets in its way. Now she must call on her once allies to fight with her. The dreaded demonologist must team up with a necromancer, a vampire lord, a demigod of war, a pirate queen, an orcish warlord, and a mad alchemist to battle the Lucent armies.

Brutal, bloody, and laugh-out-loud funny, The Maleficent Seven from award-winning author Cameron Johnston has it all, from monsters and gods, demons and warriors, battles on land and battles on sea, and even a few barroom brawls. It takes a crazed mind like his to produce a novel this wild. Calling on his knowledge of mythology and his enthusiasm for gaming and sword play, Johnston has created a dark comedy that reflects his interests. This novel reads like an exciting Dungeons & Dragons campaign with the most deranged Dungeon Master. Johnston’s new saga, with his berserk anti-heroes, is a fast-paced, fun, and thrilling read.
