Ratings: ★ ★
I started and stopped reading this book a number of times and I can't really get past the first quarter of the book. The book moves at a slow pace and neither the plot nor the characters held my attention. I never liked the main character, Wump and even Father Duncan, the local priest. The story is too "wordy" for my taste even the description for each character is too long which I thought too boring to read. The book just didn't work for me. Please note that what bothers me might not bother other readers at all. Here are some positive reviews for this book. Read here.
About the book:
Hex signs protect every barn and outbuilding. Babies disappear at birth. When a brick wall unearthed at the site of a new restaurant collapses, and raw sewage carries hundreds of baby bones into the pit left behind, it looks like the devil's made Three Bridges his playground.
