SIXTY-ONE NAILS: The Courts of the Feyre Vol I - Mike Shevdon


THERE IS A SECRET WAR GROWING BENEATH THE STREETS OF LONDON.
A dark magic will be unleashed by the Untainted...Unless a new hero can be found.
The immense Sixty-One Nails follows Niall Petersen, victim of a suspected heart attack on the London Underground, into the hidden world of the Feyre, an uncanny place of legend that lurks just beyond the surface of everyday life. The Untainted, the darkest of the Seven Courts, have made their play for power, and unless Niall can recreate the ritual of the Sixty-One Nails, their dark dominion will enslave all of the Feyre, and all of humankind too.

Another book I found thanks to Becky at NoMoreGrumpyBookseller

(sorry, can't seem to embed links any more)

The story weighs in at 524 pages, but it's a smokin' fast 524 pages. Following Niall as he discovers existence after a life-altering heart attack in the London Underground. He is saved by a woman named Blackbird who also becomes his guide and mentor. Niall is one of the rare forms of the Tainted, half-human and half-fey. The Untainted are purebloods who want the half-breeds eradicated and are well on their way to getting this accomplished.

It's up to Niall, with Blackbird's help, to ensure that this does not happen.


I was told that since NEVERWHERE is one of my absolute favorite books in the world, that I would definitely dig SIXTY-ONE NAILS....and Becky was ab-so-tively correct!!
