Blackbirch: The Beginning (Book 1)

Welcome to Blackbirch. It’s a place no one forgets. Except for Josh Taylor.

The fatal car crash took more than 17-year-old Josh’s parents. It stole his memories and returned him to his birthplace, Blackbirch, a tourist town steeped in a history of witchcraft.

Amongst friends he’s forgotten and a life he doesn’t want, Josh is haunted by nightmares so believable he swears the girl in his dreams is real. Kallie is so captivating he ignores her blood-stained hands, but he can’t overlook the blue glow summoned to her skin.

Kallie says it’s an ancient magic they share and a secret worth hiding, because as Josh discovers, they aren’t the only gifted ones.

To restore his memories and find the true cause of the car accident, he must learn what’s real. And what secrets Blackbirch has buried in its woods.


“I devoured this book! The intrigue grabs you from page one, and this air of mystery and magic carries throughout the whole story.”

“Blackbirch: The Beginning has the kind of smart, sharp prose that makes it stand head and shoulders above the usual YA read.”

“…a cliffhanger ending that made my jaw drop…”

“Blackbirch: The Beginning is the kind of book that will make you stay up late reading it and then invade your dreams.”

“K.M Allan weaves you into the story at a visceral level – creating a sense of place and a feeling of dread, that follows you right through to the closing pages.”
