really enjoyed the free samples ( stories) unfortunately I felt the full length book was way too long. too much information about who was king and when who did what 300 years ago?
the readers voice is excellently suited to these type of stories and saves the book from been just.... ok

Seventeenth-century England, and a plough uncovers a grisly skull in the furrows of a farmer's field. The skull disappears, but its malefic influence begins to work in insidious ways upon the nearby village of Hexbridge. First, the cows stop milking and the fruit turns rotten on the trees. Then, an insolent ungodliness takes hold of the local children, mysterious fur patches appear on limbs and people start disappearing.... Something evil is stirring in the woods.
