Love at a cost to all future generations. A story of commitment and heartbreak.Mochioen realizes that all his family has lived a lie and he now must pay the cost. Folklore, fairies, and secret deals all crowded in to determine Mochien and Kates future. “Is it my deal that still stands,” Joe asked through clenched teeth. “Or, is there a different one to be honored now, one to him .whom you owe allegiance to, well son is it who I am, and the McCarthy’s were, or what you have become?” Joe asked.“It’s not me you need to talk to, come in, and have a cup of tea with me.” Marge led the distressed young man into her cluttered kitchen. She pushed some objects out of the way “I knew this day would come,” she muttered to herself. “A secret never stays hidden forever,” she muttered. Crossing the kitchen, he was just in time to see the old woman that he had let in leaving. She was carrying a small bundle held tightly to her chest; it was his and Maggie’s newborn son.
The fairy midwife closed the door firmly behind her, for that is who she was.

“Gothic horror at its modern finest”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Bronwen
My first foray out of childhood’s books was into Gothic chillers and horror stories and this book just took me back within pages to that under the covers, knuckle chewing thrill of late night goblins, ghosts and ghouls, along with unwise decisions made by the well meaning in the depths of desperation and misery. A dark story with a sombre tone, this book weaves deception and betrayal with fantasy and fear and a solid dose of the mystical to bring a tale that’s best read in the deepest hours of the night. Deals with the devil never do run smooth and this is certainly the case in this story. Generations cursed by heated promises made in the throes of passionate, ill-advised love, increasingly more unwise deals made with progressively more evil characters and a denouement that leaves you feeling a little raw and uncertain. An absolute delight of a book.
About the Author
Born and Bred in her native Ireland, Nuala Sherry now lives to tell her stories – to share and to pass on the traditions and the folklore that is so rapidly disappearing in hustle and bustle of today’s modern-day society.
Brought up on a steady diet of myth and fantastical tales (some she freely admits were designed – or altered, at least – to keep her and her siblings out of places that might prove to be dangerous, while also to ensuring they were home at a semi-respectable hour) she feels duty-bound to ensure that the words of those who have gone before her are never lost to us.
Nuala is also a medium and a psychic of some note and she brings years of experience and know-how to her craft.
