Folk horror through the eyes of a modern teen in this atmospheric tale of obsession, suspense and magic.
Something strange has been unleashed in the north of England. A modern-day druid commits a series of ghastly murders in an attempt to unleash the awesome power of the ancient gods of Great Britain. But all hell really breaks loose when his latest would-be victim, Nicnevin “NISSY” Oswald, turns out to be more than she seems.
A British tale mixing black magic and horror, godfathered by Jock, one of the new masters of comic book suspense!
"Honestly chilling, surprising, human and brilliantly structured murder mystery."
“Engaging and provocative in a way we haven't seen before."
"Darkly magical and strange, Nicnevin and the Bloody Queen explores British landscape and myth in the style of folk horror film and TV from the 1960s and '70s but with a contemporary edge …"
"A bewitching blend of British folk horror and coming-of-age yarn that had me racing through its pages, desperate to see what happened next. Nicnevin is a heroine for our times, a sympathetic but credibly self-absorbed urban teenager discovering there's more to the landscape than meets the eye."
