An atmospheric, chilling page turner from rising star Martin Stewart, reminiscent of Stand by Me and Netflix's hit drama, Stranger Things.
Sep, Arkle, Mack, Lamb and Hadley: five friends thrown together one hot, sultry summer.
When they discover an ancient stone box hidden in the forest, they decide to each make a sacrifice: something special to them, committed to the box for ever. And they make a pact: they will never return to the box at night; they'll never visit it alone; and they'll never take back their offerings.
Four years later, a series of strange and terrifying events take place. Someone broke the rules, and now everyone has to pay.
But how much are they willing to sacrifice?
After working variously as a recycling technician, university lecturer, golf caddy and English teacher, Martin Stewart turned to his passion for storytelling and began writing novels. Born in Glasgow, where he now lives, his first novel, Riverkeep, was longlisted for the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize.
