Darby Karchut’s (writing as Darby Kaye) urban fantasy for big kids: Unholy Blue (ISBN 987-1633920518, trade paperback, ebook, 292 pages) releases January 19th, 2016 from Spencer Hill Press/Spence City. The sequel to the best-selling The Stag Lord, the book is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and most independent bookstores.

It's going to take more than a bit o' luck for Shay Doyle—Healer to a clan of  Celtic warriors living in modern-day Colorado—to keep one stubborn Irish warrior, and his son, alive. For Fate seems to have it in for Bannerman Boru, descendant of the kings of Ireland, and recipient of an ancient grudge from the mad god, Cernunnos.
Shay and Bann, along with the Doyle clan, must suss out how to kill a shapeshifter that refuses to stay dead, prevent clan warfare, and make a choice that could change their lives.

If they don’t lose them first.

  1. So excited about Unholy Blue. Darby Kaye is a natural storyteller. I LOVED The Stag Lord. Close to home, some fantasy and mystic tales. What's not to love!

  2. Thanks, Donnell. Bann and Shay were a hoot to write. I want Shay's new house...
