When the children of Glenwood begin vanishing one by one, baffling local and federal authorities alike, the idyllic New England suburb becomes anything but a utopia.
Built upon the ruins of a lost colony, Glenwood harbors a long-forgotten secret, and when three strangers are lured into the midnight woods by the phantom of a Puritan boy, they discover the truth of the town's dark past and must face a vision of its bloody future.
Together, this unlikely trio--Jay, an alcoholic school teacher, Tim, a wise-cracking new kid in town, and Sarah, a nine-year-old with a handful of imaginary friends--must find a way to rescue the town from a terrifying supernatural force to prevent history from repeating itself.
An immensely satisfying paranormal thriller that manages to be playful, haunting and engrossing all at once ... It all works thanks to Derik Cavignano’s careful drawing of this three co-protagonists. All the relationships in Colony of the Lost feel authentic and free-flowing. The plot delivers heavy doses of suspense, but it never feels particularly dark or heavy. Consider putting this one on your shortlist of possible beach reads (and also check out Derik’s other great book, The Righteous and the Wicked).
"A solid horror story with appetizing characters."
Colony of the Lost was named a finalist for the 2016 Silver Falchion Award by Killer Nashville
