COVER REVEAL: This Pact Is Not Ours
Hey Spooky spooker!
Halloween is right around the corner (right???) and we're thrilled to finally be able to reveal the cover to our spooky, summer camp, coming-of-age, horror This Pact Is Not Ours by Zachary Sergi.
In this haunting novel, those lazy, hazy days of summer are about to get brutal, when four friends return to the campsite they've spent every summer at since they were kids. Only this year their relationships will be put to the ultimate test when they discover they're bound by an ancient familial pact that demands a terrible sacrifice. This summer threatens to tear their group (and the world) apart!
And here is the stunning cover with art by the incomparable Dri Gomez.
We were so sure we could do better...but were we dead wrong?
The summer before college Luca Piccone returns to Copper Cove, the idyllic campsite he and his closest friends have visited every year since they were kids. To Luca, Copper Cove is like the setting of the fantasy movies he loves, a sanctuary, protected from the dangers of the outside world, where nothing goes wrong and everything stays the same.
But this year things are changing.
Desperate to make this summer the best one yet, Luca tries to ignore the freshly torn rifts within his tight friend group, the pangs of unrequited love, the anxiety attacks he thought he’d left back at school, and the shadows at the edge of the forest threatening to break free. Until he learns the terrible truth.
Every generation the children of four families are bound by a pact. A pact designed to keep the camp pristine and the monstrous force lurking beneath the campsite imprisoned. But in order to do this, an unthinkable price must be paid--a price that has soaked the previous generations in blood. Can Luca keep his friends, and his favorite place, from being ripped apart?
By the end of the summer, only one thing is for certain: Copper Cove will never be the same again.
This Pact Is Not Ours is an homage to early Kevin Williamson, I Know What You Did Last Summer set on Dawson’s Creek, in a contemporary blend of Stranger Things meets We Were Liars.
