Emma Guthrie expects this summer to be like any other in the South Carolina Lowcountry--hot and steamy with plenty of beach time alongside her best friend and secret crush, Cooper Beaumont, and Emma’s ever-present twin brother, Jack. But then a mysterious eighteenth-century message in a bottle surfaces, revealing a hidden pirate bounty. Lured by the adventure, the trio discovers the treasure and unwittingly unleashes an ancient Gullah curse that attacks Jack with the wicked flesh-eating Creep and promises to steal Cooper’s soul on his approaching sixteenth birthday.
When a strange girl appears, bent on revenge; demon dogs become a threat; and Jack turns into a walking skeleton; Emma has no choice but to learn hoodoo magic to undo the hex, all before summer—and her friends--are lost forever.
I am excited for this book because it is about magic! I am on a serious magic/witches kick right now. I was looking for new witchy books and found this. I think it looks like a cross between the movie The Skeleton Key, Anna Dressed in Blood and The Goonies. The cover is pretty, too. I can't wait to read Conjure. I just hope my TBR pile will be under some sort of control so I can read it ASAP. This will be released sometime (see above) before Halloween and will be a perfect Fall read.
What are you waiting on this week? Does Conjure sound like a book you would like to read?
