What would happen were humankind able to plumb deep down…to the very root of evil?

In the 1600s, colonists discovered a witch in their midst. They forced her to do an unspeakable thing. They stitched up her eyes, and her mouth. They bound her in heavy chains and they drowned her.

But she came back. She haunted their town. She still haunts their town. And she isn’t leaving anytime soon.

The centuries pass…the 1700s, the 1800s, the 1900s…

You’re stuck there, too. And so were your ancestors. You don’t really have a choice.

Welcome to Black Spring.

Now it’s the 21st century. Technology has made some very large leaps. Now, you can track the witch on your smartphone…and report her wereabouts via an app callex “Hex”. ‘Cause Kathryn Van Wyler goes where she will. And she stays as long as she wants to.

Its unsettling. But you can’t move her. You can’t even touch her.

Those are the RULES. The rules were drawn up in days of old, and have been updated over the years. Rules designed to hide the witch from the outside; to keep evil at bay on the inside.

Except, evil is timeless.  And, eventually, it will have its day…

I absolutely loved this book. It isn’t what you expect. It’s much more. And, it will make you think…about a great many things.

Above, I quoted one of my favorite lines from the book. And below are some promotional images from the publisher (s).

#HEX. It’s an app. It’s also a new book by #Thomas Olde Huevelt. HEX, the app, tracks the movements of a 300-year-old ghost-witch (keep watching)…

Trust me…Hex should be your next read.

YouTube video of Katheryn Van Wyler, the Black Rock witch. In addition to having her eyes and mouth sewn shut, she was bound tightly in chains. She is shown here grasping an offering…a bag of peacock feathers.
