The Colony is the genre of book we have come to expect from Cottam. It’s dark and creepy and set on an island in the Hebrides. A publishing magnate, who is really into aliens, has bought the best equipment and people, from scientists to psychics to find out what happened 200 years ago on New Hope Island, when a man of questionable character and his followers left civilization to form a new home. It seemed they did quite well at first, but one day there was just no one there. Things start going badly from the start. No one is safe and no one is immune from being killed off.
Maybe it’s just me but I really enjoy U.K. writers. The language, the details, the history education. All I know is I can’t wait for the next New Hope book to come out and I hope it’s sooner rather than later!
