The Eighth Court by Mike Shevdon

“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, author of the Lescari Revolution series

The Courts of the Feyre is swiftly becoming one of my favourite series. There is a fantastic quality to Mike Shevdon’s work that I’ve yet to discover anywhere else … a great example of modern urban fantasy executed perfectly.” – The Eloquent Page

The Eighth Court by Mike Shevdon, cover art by John CoulthartThe Eighth Court has been established, but petty rivalries and old disputes threaten its stability. The mongrels that make up the court are not helping, and Blackbird enlists the help of the warders to keep the peace.

Has Blackbird bitten off more than she can chew, and can the uneasy peace between the courts continue under such tension and rivalry?

Praise and Reviews:

“The tension just builds and builds with twists, turns, murder and betrayal all culminating in an ending, that is everything that it should be, powerful, poignant and climactic. Urban fantasy at its finest. *****”

For the earlier books in the series:

“Shevdon’s prose is elegant and simple and winds up being invisible. We notice the story, not the writer. And that’s a rare and pretty fantastic thing.”
Kate of Mind

“This book is magnificent in every way. The protagonist is a much more everyday Joe than many writers choose to portray – divorced father of one, with an ex-wife he clearly doesn’t get on with, Naill and his life are not perfect and it’s these imperfections that ground the story. Combine this some very well researched real-world locations and you get a very believable story that you can’t help but relate to. Sixty One Nails is a novel I will remember for a very long time. 5*****”
Science Fiction & Fantasy

Sixty One Nails caught me by surprise. I didn’t expect to be so won over by it. As I said earlier it was purchased on impulse and was from an unknown author. With The Road to Bedlam I expected something great and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s fantastic to see an author finding his stride and start to really flex his creative muscles. I’ll certainly be buying book 3. I’m already looking forward to it.”
The Eloquent Page

“I love a book with a strong ending, one that shows the author stepped up his game to create a spectacular finish. Mike pulled out all the stops on this one, creating one of the most memorable climaxes I’ve read across any genre.”
Timothy C. Ward
