This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the creator, @Lauren’s Page Turners. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!
This Week’s Selection:
The Maleficent Seven by Cameron Johnston
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.
The author has described this novel as a mix of Kings of the Wyld and Suicide Squad smooshed together to make a new story. While I am not familiar with the first, I am with the second, so I am looking forward to the villains coming together to defeat a common enemy. I hope that along with the action there is some humor as that is a reason I enjoy stories, like Suicide Squad. Cameron Johnston is a new-to-me author, so I do not know what to expect from his writing, but I look forward to giving this book a try!
