Publisher's Summary

Five years after a tragic expedition put New Hope Island back in the headlines, past-his-prime crime author Dennis Thorpe leads a writers' retreat to that secluded corner of the Hebrides.... The group is never seen again.

Ruthie Gillespie, the beautiful, heavily tattooed, hard-drinking author of dark tales for children, was supposed to be among their number, but something stopped her at the eleventh hour, and it isn't long before the police come knocking. With her escape tying her irrevocably to the case, Ruthie falls deeper and deeper into a web of dark magic and darker secrets as it becomes clear that the writers' pasts are not what they seem.

How far can you take an investigation when your own life is threatened? Do you continue, knowing that you must find the answers before the island claims another victim? Or do you run and hope that it never catches up with you?

    "good story"

    The reader used the same voice and inflections for every character, so I found it difficult to differentiate characters and keep up with the story. I actually had to listen to portions multiple times to figure out what was going on. I did have a good plot and I did enjoy listening...just have gotten spoiled by other audio books that do different voices which makes it easier for me to multitask

    "Fascinating Sequel!!!!"

    The author has created a fascinating sequel by assembling both a familiar and original combination of successful elements. I loved the new characters: They blend well with story lines from the first novel. Totally satisfying follow up. To the author - Please do not wait so long to give us the next novel in this series!

    "Satisfying Second Sojourn"

    An excellent followup to The Colony, and imo better than it's progenitor... A bit of horror, but mor of a psychological thriller w/ supernatural and gothic elements... I thought the story flowed well w/ an easy pace accented w/ good setting and imagery... The underlying mystery is put together well and has some delightfully unexpected twists... Perhaps a little too much fate and Deus ex Machina nudging the story along, but not annoyingly so... The narration is excellent and fits the somber mood... Worth the credit if you like a thoughtful composition that doesn't heavily rely on gratuitous gore and farsical spookiness to engage you...

    "Yes, worth it;-)"

    I love the narrator, so even though the story starts out the same, even though you think "ughhh, just a revisit", keep reading! After the first bit the story twists, turns and becomes its own book. Worth it, enjoy ;-)

    "A little bit of a letdown"

    The first book was very gripping and powerful. This sequel is somewhat weaker, with the author trying to tie up all the loose ends.

    "love it, written with style"

    It reminds me of M.R. James, but with a style and delivery of its own. Great character development and a sense of atmosphere

    "Classic Ghost Story"

    What a great story, the narrator is spot on and such an agreeable voice. Classic ghost story, leaving most to our imagination. Goes perfect with the first book. I'm onto the third book by FG Cottam. Love it

    Story
    "Mixed experience"

    I listened to The Colony back in 2013. I enjoyed it and was looking forward to this follow-up. I listened to The Going and the Rise novella first. This features a character, Ruthie, who then has a prominent role in Dark Resurrection. Annoyingly, a detailed summary of The Going is featured in DR. This is the most obvious example of padding-out this long novel.

    I wish I had revisited The Colony before listening to DR. Some of the characters from DR feature in the new novel and I couldn't remember their back story. Like The Colony, I found that this novel had far too many characters and distinguishing some of them was not easy.

    I stuck with the story to the end but it took a lot of effort. It seemed very long and didn't sustain my inteterest.
