"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 beds for nights on end. Everybody knows that her eyes may never be opened or the consequences will be too terrible to bear. The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town by using high-tech surveillance to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated by being kept in lockdown, the town's teenagers, decide to break their strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiraling into dark, medieval practices of the distant past."--Jacket.

Surprising Twists and Turns

5 stars

Wow, what a riveting book! I finished this in three days, because the suspense was relentless.

Hex is about a town living under a curse, where evil lies waiting behind the secrets kept regarding an ancient witch, bound in chains, who wanders the streets and waits.

I was pleasantly surprised at the turns the plot took. Thomas Olde Heuvelt is fast becoming a favorite author of chills.
