The news is out! My new book, The Maleficent Seven, will be published next year by Angry Robot. https://www.thebookseller.com/news/johnston-returns-angry-robot-third-title-1220963 The synopsis: Black Herran was a dread demonologist, and the most ruthless general in 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. 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.
