Two best friends. An urban legend. A sinister curse.

Twenty years ago, horror loving Sabrina told her best friend, Megan, the terrifying Irish folk tale of the Blue Man, who sold his soul to the Devil in vengeance against a personal injustice. What should have been the best summer of their schooldays turned into a waking nightmare, as the Blue Man came to haunt Megan. Sabrina, helpless to save Megan from a path of self-destruction and substance abuse as she sought refuge from the terror, left Belfast for a new life in Liverpool.

Twenty years later, the former friends reunited thinking they had escaped the horrors of the past. Both were pregnant for the first time. Both had lived elsewhere and moved back to their hometown, Belfast. Both were wrong about the sinister reality of the Blue Man, as the trauma of their school days caught up to them – and their families.

Why did the Blue Man terrorise Megan? Was there more to the man behind the urban legend? Was their friendship – and mental health – strong enough to overcome a twenty year curse?

    Hi just finished Gods of Avalon Road (just in time for mayday might I add☀️) what a gripping and excellent read! Wish a sexy sun god would come out of a cauldron in my garden! I really enjoyed it!! Will there be a follow on book?

    • Awesome, glad you enjoyed it! Yes, I’ve outlined 2 more books to make it into a trilogy. Had planned for it to be a standalone, but I’ve had more positive feedback than I thought so will expand it out! 😉

    Still working my way through Gods of Avalon Road, I would not be able to put it down if it wasn’t for my manic toddler. Well worth the money xxx😁

    Really enjoyed this! I liked the first person narration because Kim has quite a sassy but equally damaged persona that is v relatable. I found myself sort of screaming at her in my head when she kept taking all the bs from carl then vince.
