A Silver Falchion Award Finalist for Best Horror (2016) A horror novel reminiscent of old-school Stephen KingA DEMON'S REVENGE ... AN ADDICT'S STRUGGLE ... THE BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF A TOWN 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. "A solid horror story with appetizing characters." -Kirkus Reviews "An immensely satisfying paranormal thriller that manages to be playful, haunting and engrossing all at once." -bestthrillers.com "Cavignano's Colony of the Lost is a riveting and suspenseful tale of atmospheric horror that calls back to the supernatural suburban chillers of the '70s and '80s. Three unlikely heroes are brought together to defeat a violent demon terrorizing their small town. What starts as a string of child disappearances turns into a shocking bloodbath of violent and sometimes sexual terror. A story of redemption and heroism cloaked in the macabre, Colony of the Lost is a winner for fans of kitschy American horror." -The BookLife Prize in Fiction
