Waiting On Wednesday #136 - Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

Waiting On Wednesday, where we put the spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating, is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

This week's choice is -


Hex - Thomas Olde Heuvelt
ISBN - 9781444793215
Publisher - Hodder & Stoughton
Release date - April 28 2016

The incredible, horrifying thriller from Thomas Olde Heuveult, the Hugo award-winning author of 'The Day The World Turned Upside Down', perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman, Adam Nevill and Stephen King.

Whoever is born here, is doomed to stay until death. Whoever comes to stay, 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. Blind and silenced, she walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children's beds for nights on end. So accustomed to her have the townsfolk become that they often forget she's there. Or what a threat she poses. Because if the stitches are ever cut open, the story goes, the whole town will die.

The curse must not be allowed to spread. The elders of Black Spring have used high-tech surveillance to quarantine the town. Frustrated with being kept in lockdown, the town's teenagers decide to break the strict regulations and go viral with the haunting. But, in so doing, they send the town spiraling into a dark nightmare.


This sounds amazing, a witch with eyes & mouth sewn shut and high tech surveillance! I was completely hooked after seeing the fantastic cover reveal last week and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. This would be perfect to read over Halloween, curled up with a blanket, hot chocolate and listening to the rain falling outside. I'll definitely be buying this a.s.a.p.!
