Publisher's Summary

Samantha "Sam" MacHorne and her Devil Dogs need a contract, and when one comes in that leads to the haunted Wythmoor Forest, the company moves out with warjacks and slug guns at the ready.... Sam and the Devil Dogs may be relaxing in Tarna, but it’s not by choice - they’d rather be employed than resting up. When a dangerous job offer comes from "the old man", Sam takes the Devil Dogs and their newest recruit, Dawson, on a perilous hunt to capture an unidentified warjack before their rival Steelheads or the horrific Cryx make a claim on the never-before-seen technology.
Whether their mission will be worth the risk remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: Sam and the Devil Dogs will do whatever it takes to bring home The Devil’s Pay. A novella of the Iron Kingdoms.

Bark as big as their bite

If you could sum up The Devil's Pay in three words, what would they be?

Funny. Enjoyable. A family.

What other book might you compare The Devil's Pay to and why?

Into the Storm. Because the Devil Dogs act just like the Malcentents... Just with a few more ladies.

Which character – as performed by Steve Baker – was your favorite?

Dawson was a good character to see the Dog's interaction with eachother, and he and Sam seemed to have sparks of chemistry. Sam is an interesting leader: one time being a caring older sister, the other being a no nonsense leader.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Dogs of War will Howl.

Any additional comments?

My only wish is that they continued to story in the next volume.

Look for volume 2...

Any additional comments?

The story in this book continues in "Dark Convergence" by the same author, though with different characters being focused on. I listened to them out of order and that was okay because of how the incidents are only tangentially related.

I enjoyed the book, though some of Steve Baker's pronunciations are odd. The story is reminiscent of reading a pulp story when considering the length and pace of the story. I'm looking forward to reading more of the books.
