Review quote

"I came away from this read feeling like I'd taken a stroll through Mike Shevdon's imagination. Is this bad? Not at all, because it's a great place to visit and poke around." - """"Sixty-One Nails" is "Neverwhere" for the next generation. The pacing is spot-on, the characters engaging, and the world fits together beautifully to create a London that ought to be. I stayed up too late finishing it." - C.E. Murphy "Mike Shevdon strikes sparks from the flinty core of English folklore, as a hero every reader can relate to finds he's part of an incredible and scarily believable parallel realm. If you've been thinking urban fantasy has nothing fresh to offer, think again." -Juliet E. McKenna "This book is magnificent in every way. "Sixty-One Nails" is a novel I will remember for a very long time. 5*****" - "" "I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes for something different in the urban fantasy genre." - "Fantasy Book Critic .".". a charming, magical book, and I am a confirmed Mike Shevdon fan." - ""Sixty-One Nails" is deeply compelling; it will tempt you away from social commitments and sleep." -
