Covenant is spine tingling and addictive. John Everson delivers a twisted treat that is loaded with suspense, a strong multifaceted plot, and taut characters. His words and imagery give us a firsthand feel of what it's like to reside in a small town, a place fueled by secrets and driven by fear.

Enter Joe Kiernan, a reporter for the small town of Terrel. After having worked at several fast-paced and prestigious jobs, he looks forward to the change of scenery and the quiet ways of a smaller-scale way of life - until the sad truth bites him in the ass. Stuck with low-level tasks and listening in on police radios for the latest minuscule town's perils, he questions why he bothered. One evening, things come to an abrupt change, but not necessarily for the better. Joe reveals a news story that threatens to pull the rug right out from under the tight-lipped residents. Terrel's Cliff has become the official site of a coincidental string of suicides. Each year, on May 22nd, a child jumps to his or her death. The townspeople try to pretend otherwise, but for five women it's an event that haunts their every waking moment. A pact, a twisted covenant is revealed, that was entered into over a hundred years ago as the only means of survival. But not survival for the children.

Joe digs into his own investigations, visits an eccentric seer, and tries to get to the bottom of what it is about Terrel's Cliff that compels a child to end their life without so much as a warning? And why have the people accepted it as a normal way of life?

Listener Opinions

    " A good ol' fashioned haunting tale, but with a twist in both setting and tone. Unlike a horror tale with a slant towards mystery, we're given a glimpse around each proverbial corner just before the protagonist steps around them ... or the bad guy leaps out at him. While some aspects of the story seem familiar to a degree you may consider it predictable, I found there was more than enough authenticity in the characters to make the read an enjoyable one. "

    " I really enjoyed this book. I thought I knew where the plot was going, but it ended up surprising me. I enjoyed the characters and the pacing. The tension continually mounts, until the satisfying ending. Highly recommended! "

    " What I like about John Everson's books is the fact that they're fun and a little too gory. If you're looking for good, scary entertainment, check him out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ingrid | 11/26/2013

    " Thoroughly enjoyed Covenant, it's not your typical horror novel that brings you up then drops you into sweet relief. Nope, this book scared the crap out of me again and again and again. A great ride! "

    " Thumper says, "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." I better keep my mouth shut. "

    " Read on my nook. Meh... it was better than Siren, but still nothing special. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Howard | 1/13/2013

    " I just don't get what the hype was all about. As far as for the horror genre, it didn't do anything for me like King, Joe Hill, Wilson, McGammon or even Koontz does for me. Reads more like a Chick-lit / sex noir if anything. Not very suspenseful.... "

    " Solid Leisure horror--Everson is better than most. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 12/6/2012

    " Absolutely a wonderful horror novel. I completely understand why it won a Bram Stoker award. Very well deserved. This is a young horror writer to keep your eyes one. I can't wait to read more of his work. "
