The Devil's Colony Book Review

-A book review: The Devil’s Colony is the last in Bill Schweigart‘s trilogy, The Fatal Folklore Trilogy, and as always, it delivers in the style I’ve become accustomed to from Schweigart, and that’s a good thing. And as usual, he pits his team of cryptid hunters against the most vile enemies that the world has to offer in the form of racists, neo-Nazis, and the alt-right.

The Devil’s Colony on Amazon.

The teaser reads as follows:

“Ben McKelvie had a good job, a nice house, a beautiful fiancée . . . until a bloodthirsty shapeshifter took everything away (In the first book). Ever since, he’s been chasing supernatural phenomena all across the country, aided by dedicated zoologist Lindsay Clark and wealthy cryptozoologist Richard Severance.

Now they face their deadliest challenge yet. In the New Jersey Pine Barrens, a man named Henry Drexler operates a private compound called Välkommen, which is Swedish for “welcome.” Indeed, Drexler welcomes all visitors—so long as they’re racists, neo-Nazis, or otherwise in cahoots with the alt-right. But Drexler is no mere Hitler wannabe. Once he was Severance’s mentor, and his research may well have summoned a monster to the Pine Barrens.

To find out the truth, Ben and Lindsay must enter the camp incognito. There, under the watchful eyes of Drexler’s bodyguards and sociopathic son, they will learn that the most dangerous beasts lurk in the human heart.”

But don’t be fooled by this loss-leader enemy. Yes, Bill and Lindsay and the team must face off against a pit of dark humanity, but as usual, there is something more to this camp and the surrounding woods that meets the eye.

Since we last saw everyone, Severance has himself a girlfriend, which in and of itself is rather shocking. Ben and Lindsay have adapted to being the best of friends, like the family they may have never had. While the rest are fulfilling their paid roles to protect and transport Severance to wherever he wants to go.
