Hello, my name is Jason Nevercott. Like most people, I have always had ideas for stories.
North End came to me in a dream. I was on a tube, which stopped at a disused station, where bad things began to happen. The rest of the story my imagination took care of - eventually.
The Destiny of Matthew was a result of visiting an art gallery and being mesmerised by a picture of a woodland scene. My memories of being a teenager and interest in history sorted out the rest.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy them. If you want to give me any feedback then please e-mail me at Jasonnevercott@gmail.com.
Thanks for taking the time to read my books.
The Destiny of Matthew
When teenager Matthew reluctantly agrees to go on a short holiday to Vienna with his parents, he thinks it will be just 'another experience'. But soon after he visits a museum, he realises that his life will never be the same again.
As teenage student Tom Murray makes his way home in the wet and windy late night, he is looking forward to a lazy week off from his studies. But after he falls asleep on an empty tube train, the piercing screams of a young female wake him up. He stumbles into a dark tunnel towards the source of the screams. But when he finds them he cannot believe what he is seeing...

This is a very entertaining and extremely well written book, which will be part of a series. It starts off with a brief intro into its world, one where humans live alongside fairies, vampires, werewolves, witches, and their ilk. We then enter the lives of the twin Demon trackers, Sarah and Shaun Gallows, the former blonde, feisty, and attractive, the latter looking like a tall serial killer with one eye and a downbeat, sarcastic personality - though the former also has this last quality. But they work well together, dispatching the evil creatures of this world on the instructions of the Council.
The plot is about them encountering a dark creature whose type they cannot quite understand but who is very dangerous to them and to the other inhabitants of this world. In trying to find out more about her and what she is up to, they encounter many of the above types of creatures in various situations, all of them dark but also with an offbeat, comic, dare I say `gallows humour' feel. Indeed, the whole book is filled with this half sarcastic(in a banterish way)/half serious tone, which is a delight to read and must have been difficult to write. What is more, there are some great characters and subplots, like a half goat/half human, who gives oral sex but who demands blood in return for her own purposes, and a love triangle involving Sarah and two laid-back, hippy types, who she saved from a werewolf.
On a superficial level, you could say this is a British `Buffy the Vampire slayer', but this would be too simplistic; for this is far more sophisticated in its humour, idiosyncratic characters, and world, and does not take itself as seriously. Furthermore, I would say that to pigeon hole it merely as a genre piece is a mistake, for the writing is excellent, conjuring up images in your mind of the book's scenes without any ambiguity and with lots of `life-colour'...A very talented writer, whose next book I will be delighted to read.
