Über das eBook
CAUTION: This book contains violence, drugs, and sex. Some disturbing scenes are described. Under no circumstances should it be given to minors.
This turbulent fantasy adventure takes the reader back in time and is based in part on true events that occurred between 1618 and 1680. The process of "kolken" is what gave this fateful place its name. In the Hexenkolk, women accused of witchcraft were buried in a linen sack. If the woman died during this violent act, it was considered proof that she was a witch and deserved to die.
If she was pulled from the water alive, the evidence was even clearer. She must have been a witch, for a normal woman would not have survived such torture. With this overwhelming verdict, she was burned at the stake, where she met her agonizing end.
In the novel, Elizabeth of the Palatinate (1618 - 1680) leads a lonely fight against patriarchy and for women's freedom.
As in the novel "Cicadas Code" and the story "Plan Eden 2021", the reader will find in "Hexenkolk" some of the protagonists and thus the spiritual, unique magic.
New York, August 21, 2019: For the citizens of the city it is a day like any other, they have no idea that a catastrophe awaits them. A mysterious scientist claims to know what's behind it. He is convinced that a woman who was convicted of witchcraft almost 400 years ago has cast a curse that is still working today.
Is he right? Or is a more sinister force at work? These two questions remain unanswered until he embarks on a journey through time with a group of chosen people to unravel the mystery.
The story shows the cruelties of the late Middle Ages, as well as the romantic glorification of that era. But it also shows the effects of superstition and the consequences of religious fanaticism. Sex and violence are as much a part of it as hope, comfort, and confidence.
Good and evil are two sides of the same coin. This story is not for the faint hearted.
