The Road to Bedlam / Mike Shevdon

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

“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

“The biggest thing that’s wrong with it is that it’s one of those books that are hard to put down and I now really, really need a good night’s sleep. For which I blame the author, of course.”

More praise for Sixty-One Nails

“Mike Shevdon takes an interesting twist by linking the plot line with an ancient ceremony that is still taking place in current day London. I found this to be the highlight of Sixty-One Nails, as Shevdon seamlessly mingles the origins and traditional ceremony of the entire event and makes it a focal point of the book. I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes for something different in the urban fantasy genre.”
