A novel by

 
 
When you are all out of heroes, all that’s left are the villains.

Black Herran was a dread demonologist, and the most ruthless general in all Essoran. She assembled the six most fearsome warriors to captain her armies: a necromancer, a vampire lord, a demigod, an orcish warleader, a pirate queen, and a twisted alchemist. Together they brought the whole continent to its knees… Until the day she abandoned her army, on the eve of total victory. 

40 years later, she must bring her former captains back together for one final stand, in the small town of Tarnbrooke – the last bastion against a fanatical new enemy tearing through the land, intent on finishing the job Black Herran started years before. 

Seven bloodthirsty monsters. One town. Their last hope.

Praise for this book

"Cameron Johnston is an exciting new voice in fantasy. His writing has a dark sense of humour and his debut is bursting with imagination and wonders. Fantastic stuff!" - Stephen Aryan

"Like Kings of the Wyld smooshed together with Suicide Squad into a glorious, gory, sweary melee." - Rob J Hayes

"Johnston has flipped the magnificent seven samurai trope on its head in this snarky romp of a tale. Packed with heart and humour, The Maleficent Seven is dark, bloody, and the most fun I’ve had in ages." - Devin Madson

"Visceral and gripping fantasy, horribly and hugely enjoyable." - Anna Smith-Spark
