"The English language debut of the bestselling Dutch novel, Hex, fromThomas Olde Heuvelt--a Hugo and World Fantasy award nominated talent to watch!
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. She walks the streets and enters homes at will. She stands next to children's bed for nights on end.
The elders of Black Spring have virtually quarantined the town to prevent their curse from spreading. Frustrated with 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." - from the publisher
