E. M. Roy's Let The Woods Keep Our Bodies is being pitched as My Best Friend's Exorcism meets Twin Peaks. Say no more, we're in! And if you have "read more" on your list of resolutions, we've got you. Conspiracies, cryptic monsters, and a missing girlfriend. Take a look below for the official synopsis and exclusive cover reveal with art by Ryan Caskey.
Leo Bates knows what's behind every corner in her hometown of Eston, Maine, where she's lived her whole life. Some bad memories and grief for her late parents, sure, but nothing dangerous. Nothing unexplainable.
All of that changes when her girlfriend Tate goes missing, and the lead detective on the case blames Leo for the disappearance. Haunted by self-doubt, Leo can only watch as the town she thought she knew deteriorates around her. She is forced to confront the painful truth about her parents, this town, and her relationship if she is to survive the following onslaught of conspiracies, cryptic monstrosities, and whatever is hiding in the woods where Tate was last seen.
The familiar becomes strange the longer you look at it. Leo navigates a broken sense of reality, shattered memories, and a distrust of herself in order to find Tate and restore balance to Eston—if such a thing ever existed to begin with.
