    1 thought on “The Devil's Pay

    1. 'The Devil's Pay' exists in an odd manner where it happens to be way better than it has any right to be. Dave Gross creates an engaging and delightfully human tale of a ragtag company of mercenaries with a heart of gold, the Devil Dog's, and provides the single best piece of IK fiction yet. The fact that Gross manages to write a novella influenced by a character unit I have never once been interested in or seen on the table and actually made me consider buying them just because is quite a feat i [...]

    2. Also reviewed on .I'm a fan of many of Dave Gross's writings. I have almost no prior knowledge of the Iron Kingdoms setting. My lack of knowledge did not at all affect my enjoyment of the novella.It's no small accomplishment that the large cast of characters is well-developed and interesting in this relatively short piece; their interactions in some ways reminded me of Glen Cook's Black Company, which I also enjoyed. The characters very much make the story, with the main point of view coming fro [...]

    3. An engaging fantasy/steampunk mashup from the POV of a combat company in a universe where brute force, well tuned machines, and a little magic combine to provide a rich foundation for imaginative storytelling.My first foray into the Iron Kingdoms and I'll be back for more! I enjoyed the cast of characters, the rather 'interesting' combat tactics, and the hints into the political background of the region and the conflict.

    4. This is the second novella I've read from Privateer Press' publisher Skull Island Expeditions and this one was every bit as good as The Way of Caine, which will also get 5 stars. I can barely believe the quality of the writers SIE has writing for them.I can't wait to see what's next from Dave Gross and Skull Island Expeditionsd if you're wondering, I'm not a Privateer Press fanboy.

    5. I really enjoy the Iron Kingdoms setting, and this book doesn't disappoint. Now I want to go and paint my Devil Dogs for Warmachine!

    6. Dave Gross does an excellent job in this novella, creating a vivid cast of characters in just the first few pages, then taking them on a wild romp in the swamp. Lots of action and an excellent story wrapped up in the "Warmachine" world of Privateer Press.Nicely done!

    7. I thought this was a great read, maybe in part due to the fact that I have been starved for longer Iron Kingdoms fiction for years. The characterization of the Dogs was good and I look forward to seeing them again in a future publication.

    8. I listened to the audio book version, and I was a fine listen. It might have needed another editing pass; having read other Dave Gross books I felt this was sub par. the audio version did a fair amount to make this an enjoyable jaunt in the Iron Kingdoms.

    9. Great reada Great book. has a little mystery to it, some humor, and action. Also you get to know a lot about the Devil Dogs.
