Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

Posted June 27, 2016 | Posted in Adult Services,Readers Advisory,What We're Reading

Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay ’til death. Whoever settles, never leaves.

Welcome to Black Spring, the seemingly picturesque Hudson Valley town haunted by the Black Rock Witch, a seventeenth century woman whose eyes and mouth are sewn shut. Muzzled, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children’s bed for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened or the consequences will be too terrible to bear.

Black Spring in the Hudson Valley of New York has been haunted by centuries by the Black Rock Witch, a woman who was convicted by the townspeople of witchery and tortured to death.  The town does not encourage people to move to town and moves visitors to leave before dark because if you stay too long, you can never leave.  As technology improves, the town council has come up with ways to track the movement of the witch and of the town residents.   The younger residents start to resent these restrictions and launch an offensive which has tragic consequences for everyone.

Reminiscent of a Stephen King novel, this dark fantasy will haunt your dreams for a long time.
