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. -- Goodreads
My Thoughts: Angie is here again! Yeah, I know. Two cover reveals in one day!?!?! Definitely the end of the world, right? Nah... Here we have a MG-YA-ish book receiving the spotlight.
Conjure definitely seems to be more of my kind of book. I mean, the message in the bottle thing is kind of stereotypical for pirate bounty, but "wicked flesh-eating Creep" sounds epically cool. I am really eager to find out what exactly "hoodoo" magic is and just everything about the evil pirates.
Although, the cover does seem a little bland for such a fantasy book. One would expect more of a pirate themed cover, rather than a blonde standing behind a tree (this is not an offense to blondes, I hope). Maybe the trees do have a relation to the whole pirate gizmo. I mean, you would not expect pirates to ever see trees, but I am pretty sure that in Peter Pan, Captain Hook repeatedly meets evil crocodiles and trees in the swamp. Let's wait and see...
