From Ryan La Sala, the wildly popular author of Reverie,
comes a twisted and tantalizing horror novel set amidst the bucolic splendor of
a secluded summer retreat.

Mars has always been the lesser twin, the shadow to his sister Caroline’s
radiance. But when Caroline dies under horrific circumstances, Mars is
propelled to learn all he can about his once-inseparable sister who’d grown
tragically distant.

 

Mars’s genderfluidity means he’s often excluded from the traditions — and
expectations — of his politically connected family. This includes attendance
at the prestigious Aspen Conservancy Summer Academy where his sister poured so
much of her time. But with his grief still fresh, he insists on attending in
her place.

What Mars finds is a bucolic fairytale not meant for him. Folksy charm and sun-drenched
festivities camouflage old-fashioned gender roles and a toxic preparatory
rigor. Mars seeks out his sister’s old friends: a group of girls dubbed the
Honeys, named for the beehives they maintain behind their cabin. They are
beautiful and terrifying — and Mars is certain they’re connected to Caroline’s
death.

But the longer he stays at Aspen, the more the sweet mountain breezes give way
to hints of decay. Mars’s memories begin to falter, bleached beneath the
relentless summer sun. Something is hunting him in broad daylight, toying with
his mind. If Mars can’t find it soon, it will eat him alive.

About Ryan La Sala:

Ryan La Sala
writes about surreal things happening to queer people.

Ryan resides
in New York City, but only physically. Escapist to the core, he spends most of
his time in the astral planes and only takes up corporeal form for special
occasions, like brunch and to watch anime (which is banned on the astral
planes).

Ryan is the
author behind the riotously imaginative Reverie, and the
brilliantly constructed Be
Dazzled
, and the highly anticipated The Honeys. He has
been featured in Entertainment
Weekly
NPRTor.com,
and one time Shangela from RuPaul’s Drag Race called him cute. Right in the
middle of the road downtown! So. Pretty big deal all around, yes?

His next
book, The Honeys, will be publish with Scholastic on August 16, 2022.
