What lengths would you go to to protect your family?In Cameron Johnston’s The Maleficent Seven, Black Herran once was a dread demonologist, and the most ruthless general in all Essoran. She assembled the six most fearsome warriors to captain her armies. Together they brought the whole continent to its knees... Until the day she abandoned her army, on the eve of total victory. Forty 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. In Ian Green’s The Gauntlet and the Fist Beneath, Flore wrought untold horrors in the rotstorm to protect her people and to bring down the Empire. When her daughter is abducted, Flore must take up the role she had sworn to put aside and become the weapon the Stormguard trained her to be, to save not only her daughter, but her people.
