I recieved a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Colony of the Lost is a gripping tale of an evil being that is hell bent on kidnapping and destroying the entire town of Glenwood, starting with the children. Three unlikely friends are on a mission to destroy a creature no one else can see. Jay, an alcoholic, Tim, a sarcastic freshman and Sarah, a nine year old must come together if they want to save their loved ones.
I found Colony of the Lost to be a quick, fun read with believable characters and detailed imagery. While I found some parts of the story were a bit iffy (how can a wanted man get around a small town without the police noticing? And can nobody hear gunshots being fired from such a close proximity?) the overall feeling of the book wasn’t bad.
I quite enjoyed getting to be inside Jay’s head as he battled with alcoholism and sobriety. I applaud the author for how well this character was portrayed.
If you are looking for something unique and not too heavy, Colony of the Lost is definitely the book for you.
