    A weird book, all right, in the best way

    I admit that the reason I picked this one off the shelf was because of all the quotes I spotted on the first page. Some of my favorite writers held this novel in high esteem, and I agree with them. Piccirilli's writing is strong, highly detailed, and filled with power emotion. You can feel the protagonist's sorrow and fear as he's drawn back to his hometown where years earlier he unleashed a malevolent force on his family and friends. There is a lot of strong imagery here that fleshes out the characters, town, and events that transpire, with hearty dashes of occult stuff thrown in. A big thumbs up from me.

    A classic novel of the occult

    An occult thriller that makes you feel for the characters. There are scenes here that will keep you up half the night, especially one involving a crime scene at an abandoned train station. The malignant atmosphere in HEXES is like a character unto itself, so that you can feel the malevolent forces creeping through every situation and scene. This is classic stuff. I can't wait for Piccirilli's next novel, THE DECEASED, which is supposed to be out this year.

    Earth, wind, fire, and air
    We may look bad
    but we don't care
    We ride the wind
    We feel the fire,
    To love the earth is our one desire
    (to love the earth is our one desire)




    Love the earth
    It's only fair
    It's one big earth
    That we must share
    We love the earth
    With all our fire
    It's in our souls
    Our one desire




    Earth, wind, fire, and air
    We may look bad
    But we don't care
    We ride the wind
    We feel the fire
    To love the earth is our one desire
    (to love the earth is our one desire)




    Nature is a precious gift
    It will make your spirits lift
    Love the earth with all your fire
    It's in your soul
    Your one desire




    Earth, wind, fire, and air
    We may look bad
    but we don't care
    We ride the wind
    We feel the fire
    To love the earth is our one desire
    To love the earth is our one desire

    Dont bother

    This book was a waste of time. Terrible character development and the story was all over the place. The worst part is that when you finally understand the point... you wish even more that you didnt waste your time. Would have given it no stars if i could have.

    It was a good read. A little disappointed as there were some sections that were boring to me. Good ending.

    Stoker nominee for Best Horror Novel of the Year

    I was overjoyed to learn that Hexes made the final ballot for the Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel of the year. Considering the effective mood of dread and terror this book develops around its complex core of characters, I was drawn into this moving tale of horror & hope & ultimate redemption. You'll be swept up in the depth of circumstances and the wonderfully literate style of voice that Piccirilli commands.

    A Great For-Adults-Only Novel

    My headline refers to a very dark, nasty party (a lot of twisted sex scenes) near the end of this book, a wonderfully written novel. The writer has a poetic style that reminded me of Poe or Lovecraft. Atmosphere drips from the pages. A great read for any horror fan!

    This goes goes beyond vague

    I forced my way through 75% of this book wanting to give up every step of the way. I appreciate a book that can keep the reader in suspense while gradually revealing the plot but this book reads like the ravings of a lunatic. The reader is completely in the dark. Another reader review mentioned that understanding came clear at the end and that the reader had decided to re-read the book so they could make sense of the plot on the second reading. And then gave it 5 stars??? I think that if the author can't reveal information in a manner that keeps the reader interested throughout the book he's wasting my time. I want to enjoy reading, not just getting to the end to find an answer.

    What a hellish Imagination!

    Though this book is confusing in the beginning until you understand later on what happened in the end of the book, and what had happened when Matthew was a teenage in that scary cave to his friend Debbie (Debbie is dead), does all the pieces come together and make better sense. The end of the book is spooky...especially the 'demonic' party that will make anyone reading this section cringe with revulsion. I am definitely reading this book a second time to pick up what I had missed. Tom Piccirilli is an excellent horror writer. I need to read more of his books.
