Hex is creepy and gripping and original, sure to be one of the top horror novels of 2016.” George R. R. Martin, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Similarities to early Stephen King…Spielbergian in the way Olde Heuvelt shows supernatural goings-on in the midst of everyday life…It’s a fabulous, unforgettable conceit and Olde Heuvelt makes the most of it.” Guardian (London)
“A pop page-turner with an intriguingly weird ambience…a funny, surprising and eerie novel.” SFX Magazine
