A wicked witch holds an upstate New York town prisoner. This is totally, brilliantly original. - Stephen KingDeeply unsettling, wholly original, brilliantly written . . . I dare you to read it. - Sarah LotzHEX is reminiscent of vintage Stephen King, and I can think of no higher praise. Chilling, moving and, in its odd way, not a little profound. - John ConnollyA truly terrifying parable about mankind's depravity ... the story is not merely unsettling, it is horrifying ... read it if you dare! - Kirkus ReviewsHidden tensions and human weakness trigger a witch-hunt that boils over into persecution, scapegoating and a shocking denouement. A powerfully spooky piece of writing. - Financial TimesA thoughtful horror story, and one that is all the more chilling for its uncompromising view of humanity . . . HEX is a book that answers the question, "Where does evil come from?" - Robin HobbA great writer, the next genre superstar - Paul CornellA compelling story rich in imagination and history . . . HEX is truly absorbing. - Fantasy Book Review
