Kim Liggett draws on her childhood during the Satanic Panic for a chilling tale of magic in The Last Harvest, winner of the 2017 Bram Stoker Award.

"I plead the blood."

Those were the last words seventeen-year-old golden boy quarterback Clay Tate heard rattling from his dad's throat when he discovered him dying on the barn floor of the Neely cattle ranch, clutching a crucifix to his chest.

Now, on the first anniversary of the Midland, Oklahoma, slaughter, the whole town's looking at Clay like he might be next to go over the edge. Clay wants to forget the past, but the sons and daughters of the Preservation Society―a group of prominent farmers his dad accused of devil worship―won't leave him alone. Including Ali, his longtime crush, who suddenly wants to reignite their romance after a year of silence, and hated rival Tyler Neely, who's behaving like they're old friends.

Even as Clay tries to reassure himself, creepy glances turn to sinister stares and strange coincidences build to gruesome rituals, but when he can never prove that any of it happened, Clay worries he might be following his dad down the path to insanity...or that something far more terrifying lies in wait around the corner.

About the Author:

At sixteen, Kim Liggett left her rural midwestern town for New York City to pursue a career in music. Along with lending her voice to hundreds of studio recordings, she was a backup singer for some of the biggest rock bands in the 80s. She is the author of Blood and Salt, Heart of Ash, and The Last Harvest.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 9 Up—Clay Tate, high school quarterback and descendant of one of the six founding families of Midland, OK, was a local hero. Then he found his father dying on the neighbor's barn floor. Clay has spent the subsequent year tilling the wheat on the family farm, taking care of his mother and two sisters, and trying to forget. But Midland won't let go of Clay so easily. The Preservation Society, a cultlike club comprised of the other five founding families, has begun pressuring Clay to take his place on the council, while everyone else in town is asking Clay to reclaim his role on the school football team. Clay doesn't know what to do, and now that he's seeing unexplainable things, he doesn't know whom to trust. Clay's deep distrust of the Preservation Society; his ache for his former love, Ali; his dependence on his guidance counselor, Miss Granger; and an ever-increasing paranoia take center stage in a tense and suspenseful drama. The story line is sometimes predictable, with clichéd plot turns, and the depictions of Midland's reverential view of high school football and general alcohol and drug abuse are a little heavy-handed. But a final twist brings the tale to a strong conclusion. Mature language is included, as are sexual situations and references to satanic worship. VERDICT An additional purchase for collections catering to avid fans of suspense and horror.—Maggie Mason Smith, Clemson University R. M. Cooper Library, SC
