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!

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A disturbing coming-of-age horror story perfect for these complicated digital age times." * SYFY WIRE *
"[An] honestly chilling, surprising, human and brilliantly structured murder mystery in the unknown heart of Britain." -- Warren Ellis
"A fantastic gothic horror, fairytale-esque story that draws in readers with an unnerving art style and a narrative that keeps you turning the pages." * WICKED HORROR *
"Mullane's debut graphic novel carefully walks the line between realism and folk horror in a way that only the best horror stories do." * HORROR NEWS NETWORK *
"A quintessentially English horror story with a powerful concoction of influences." * GROVEL *
"Ripe with black magic, myth, and murder... A spellbinding story." * DREAD CENTRAL *
"Engaging and provocative in a way we haven't seen before." -- Alan Jones
"This is a masterpiece." -- Alex Paknadel (FRIENDO)
"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." -- Anne Billson
"A moody slice of folk horror that peels away the skin of modern Britain to reveal its wild and bloody heart." -- Andy Diggle (LOSERS)
"Eerie yet cathartic. Strange yet graceful. Novel yet wistful.... [It] marks Helen Mullane as a much needed, passionate new voice in horror/weird fiction." -- Lonnie Nadler (THE DREGS)
"Anyone whose read Neil Gaiman's novels can appreciate the style... It's an impressive work." * PULLBOX *
