A tale of Wabanaki folklore emerges
from deep in the bayous of Louisiana...
Twins Maritime and John Stephens, along with their significant others, are afforded the opportunity to take the trip of a lifetime after their college graduation. But the excitement quickly dissipates and the trip turns on a dime, after the foursome inadvertently delve into some local black magic. Their once-perfect lives turn horrific as they learn that it's never wise to mess with the Devil. As they fight to get their lives back, they learn that forgiveness is not easily earned; nor is it guaranteed.
Inspired by the tale of the Skudakumooch Ghost Witch of the Wabanaki tribes. Filled with edge-of-your-seat horror, McAleer's nothing-held-back writing style, along with a few surprises; Skadegamutc will sit with you well after you've read the last page.
Just as he did in his debut novel, The Churel, M.J. McAleer fuses an old wives' tale--this time originating in Northern Maine and Nova Scotia--and retells it in what is arguably one of the most historically haunted cities in the world: New Orleans.
