The Sacrifice Box - Signed Copy by Martin Stewart

An atmospheric, chilling page turner from rising star Martin Stewart, author of the critically acclaimed Riverkeep reminiscent of Stand by Me and 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?

Praise for Riverkeep:

"...ceaselessly brilliant..."  — The Guardian

"Filled with wild adventure and hilarious dialogue . . . this vivid, engrossing fantasy will delight readers."  — Publisher's Weekly, starred review

"The quest quickly becomes an intense bildungsroman as darkly comical as it is terrifying and violent. A rich debut: Huck Finn meets Moby-Dick."    — Kirkusstarred review

"There isn't a single forgettable person, monster, or creature in the whole adventure; it s impossible to not be deeply invested in all of their successes. This is a rare work that feels like a sophisticated, gritty folktale, full of impossibilities and dramatic tension, and it is both hilarious and tragic in equal measure."    — BCCBstarred review
