‘The Haunted Trail: The War of the Dublin Woods’ takes readers back into a very unique Dublin woodland where former residents of a local mental hospital lay in waiting – to kill innocent passers-by. In volume two of ‘The Haunted Trail’, one man’s quest to rid the woods of its evil uncovers two four-leaf clovers and a string of historical extra-terrestrial encounters. Dublin’s problems are only just beginning…


Gloucester, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2014 -- John C. Lukegord made waves in the horror genre earlier this year with the release of ‘The Haunted Trail’ series, focusing on a disastrous Dublin Woods which has become a playground for killings by residents of a local mental hospital. Readers of volume one were treated to an edge-of-the-seat fusion of action and gore, putting an entirely new spin on a city celebrated for its innocent heritage.

With readers screaming out for more, Lukegord is back with the sequel, ‘The Haunted Trail: The War of the Dublin Woods’. Don’t open the book with any preconceived ideas, because Lukegord’s creativity is anything but conventional.


While war rages on in the Dublin Woods, Mick finds himself in yet another dangerous predicament. After surviving the trickery of McRandle, Mick Patrican makes it his sole purpose to rid the Dublin Woods of its cursed past.

In the midst of this struggle, Mick uncovers secrets from the past regarding the two four-leaf clovers and their relation to extra-terrestrial historical encounters. Find out if Mick and his brother’s spirits can eliminate the evil curse which has plagued the Dublin Woods for two-thousand years.

“This book is a fast-paced fusion of a race to find clues, dodge evil and even outsmart a malevolent mummy that was cursed by an alien,” explains Lukegord. “It builds on and answers many of the mysteries deliberately left open by volume one. If you want to discover if the Patrican brothers can eliminate the wood’s curses and save the city of Dublin forever, then this is the book for you.”

Continuing, “There’s a huge market for this kind of unconventional horror. It certainly flips the genre on its head and the fact it is set in Dublin - a place with its own unique lore and energy – makes it all the more intriguing to readers and critics alike.”

As with book one, critics have been lavish in their praise. Catherine Thureson from Foreword reviews comments, “John C. Lukegord’s The Haunted Trail: The war of the Dublin Woods is a dark tale about an evil curse that irrupts in murder and mayhem on Halloween night in 1892. Each action-packed page is filled with disaster. The book has the feel of a typical slasher movie. There is a great deal of often gory violence, all connected by a somewhat mysterious evil—a cursed mummy bent on destruction.”

Rebecca Ross adds, “If you are drawn to scenes of blood and gore and prefer a simple, no-frills style of writing, then by all means pick up The War of the Dublin Woods.”

With Halloween just days away, interested readers are urged to purchase their copies as soon as possible.

About John C Lukegord
John C Lukegord was born and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts. I have always enjoyed intense plot twists and chilling tales from books and movies. I got the inspiration for writing the book The Haunted Trail from creating Halloween skits with my friends in the early 90’s. Many people enjoyed the Halloween skits when we performed them in the late fall season of October. We put many well-crafted hours into these skits and the Haunted Trail seemed to get more and more popular every year. I honestly feel that this material is pure gold for the entertainment industry.
