“Never make a deal with a Hunter,” I murmured, settling down. “Never make a deal with a Hunter…”
Unfortunately for Maddox Black, that’s exactly what she did. Thought dead for seven years, Maddox returns home to Greyport, intent on claiming her deceased father’s infamous travel journals.
Before she can lay her hands on her inheritance, she discovers her drunkard cousin has already promised the journals to the Grim. To make things worse, the bankrupt Earl of Greyport is blackmailing her to race for them across the Damned Seas and a Hunter is knocking on her door, claiming she’s to join his Demon-exorcising Order.
Running out of options, Maddox does the unthinkable and strikes a deal with the unnatural Hunter, leading her down a whirlwind of walking corpses, using dismembered fingers as currency, burning down plague ridden villages and bribed to find a mad prince’s kidnapped sister.
To survive, she will have to become the very thing people feared her to be.

Elizabeth Earle started life by waking up and becoming unsatisfied with reality. A member of a big family, always being lumbered with the stool at Sunday Dinner and specialising in beating grown (somewhat tipsy) men at left handed arm wrestling, she is the author of Tartarus and the series of The Adventures of Benedict and Blackwell and most recently The Contract of Maddox Black.
She can be found either in her hometown of Warwickshire, or most recently her new home in Perth, Western Australia.
Elizabeth studied at the Norwich University College of the Arts after studying a National Diploma in Fine Art. Within the first year of studying a Degree in Fine Art, she quickly changed her mind and decided to pursue her life long ambition of becoming a writer, and embarked on a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing.
Since then, she has had various careers concerning making balloon animals, serving drinks to drunks, making cakes for charity, teaching inmates various subjects such as art and design and life and social skills, and finally took the plunge in writing full time.
Elizabeth’s favourite places are Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick Castle, Arley Woods and of course most recently Australia.
Elizabeth’s hobbies consist of eating her weight in chocolate raisins, maltesers, attempting to extend her knowledge beyond 5 chords on the guitar, writing and drinking a vast amount of tea.
When not hiding away writing, Elizabeth likes to spend her time with friends and family and obsessing over Lord of the Rings.
