    1. I'm sorry to say that The Devil's Colony is just not as good as the two previous books. Honestly, I'm a bit surprised about how lackluster this book is. It's like all the energy was put on the two first books and nothing was spared for this book. Characters that I previously cared for did I find uninteresting and quite frankly very flat. I wanted to learn more about Severance when I read the previous books, but in this book did he feel like such an uncharismatic person and his love story felt re [...]


    2. Review CopyI love stories set in the Pine Barrens of South Jersey. I have a special affinity for stories of the Jersey Devil. However, this particular tale deals with a different kind of devil.Välkommen. Lance Whelan and his friend Danny learned about this place"on the white power message boards, the conspiracy sites, the doomsday blogs."It was a haven for like-minded individuals and the young men were intrigued by one word more than any otherfamily.The Devil's Colony is book three in the Fatal [...]


    3. In a trilogy pertaining to cryptid monsters, I find it fitting that the final book in the series centers around the most horrible monster of all - man. The evil that man has inflicted on each other is astounding to think about. Hatred and bigotry come front and center in Schweigart's The Devil's Colony. Ben and Lindsay are once again called on by billionaire cryptozoologist, Richard Severance. This time, it's to infiltrate the compound of neo-nazi Henry Drexler. Henry is the son of a former Nazi [...]


    4. There are a handful of authors that I trust enough to read 2 books from, let alone 3. Especially in a series, because, let's face it, the second book generally sucks, and the third one rarely manages to measure up to the bar the first book set. Bill Schweigart is on the short list of authors I trust enough to keep reading, and The Devil's Colony just cemented his place on that list.Lindsay, Ben, Severance, Alex, and Davis are all great characters that feel like the family they are to each other. [...]


    5. Review of THE DEVIL'S COLONYby Bill SchweigartThis stunning horror/mystery/paranormal thriller is the third in the trilogy that begins with BEAST OF BARCROFT and continues in NORTHWOODS. I loved all three of these books, which elucidate in-depth characters realistically while exploring preternatural creatures and events. THE DEVIL'S CANYON is quite currently apropos, and is set in a white supremacist enclave in, of all places, the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. The site's owner and supposed driving [...]



    6. Back at the tail end of 2015, I read The Beast of Barcroft by Bill Schweigart. It’s a great folklore/monster mash-up with some fun characters and entertaining plot. In 2016 Northwoods, the sequel, appeared and the monstrous mayhem continued. Once again, I was impressed with the author and his ability to create a self-contained story that also managed to expand the universe he had already created. In The Devil’s Colony, Bill Schweigart has upped the ante once again. What’s worse than facing [...]


    7. Before I downloaded this from Netgalley, I had only quickly read the description. But that was enough to hook me in. (Monsters? Evil skinheads? A motley crew of heros? Yes, please). Somehow though, I had missed the fact that this was part of a trilogy. You know how it sucks to be the person who arrives late as the party is starting to wind down? Yeah, that's what it was like for me reading this book. I dug the premise and the action scenes, but there were so many references to past adventures an [...]


    8. The monster series ends with a bang! The crew assembles as Severence's former partner and mentor, Drexler, draws him to an enclave in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, a Nazi and neo-Nazi gathering hosted by Drexler, son of one of Hitler's SS leaders. As the story unfolds, the origin of the Barwick Beast and the Minnesota Redmouths becomes clear, and fresh monsters are encountered. The characters continue to be real and deep. The suspense grows as both human and supernatural monsters menace Ben and L [...]


    9. I really enjoy Bill Schweigart's books and especially looked forward to this series. I always love reading books about cryptozoological creatures and really liked this series (and hoped for more). This last book was interesting but didn't quite draw me in as much as the first two books in the trilogy did. I am hoping that the author will one day do another trilogy with Ben, Lindsay, Alex.


    10. The Devil's ColonyBy:Bill SchweigartWhat's it's about:The greatest monster is man. From the author of The Beast of Barcroft and Northwoods comes a chilling descent into the depths of horror and human depravity.Ben McKelvie had a good job, a nice house, a beautiful fiancée . . . until a bloodthirsty shapeshifter took everything away. Ever since, he’s been chasing supernatural phenomena all across the country, aided by dedicated zoologist Lindsay Clark and wealthy cryptozoologist Richard Severa [...]


    11. 4.5 stars but I'll round up.Bigger, better (maybe?) and even more gruesome (definitely), the third and final book in Bill Schweigarts Fatal Folklore Trilogy is a brilliant conclusion to what has become one of my favourite horror series. I'm really going to miss Ben and Lindsay but I honestly don't know how Schweigart could possibly top that.Note: as this is the third book in the series this review contains spoilers for the previous stories.You would think by now that people would know better tha [...]


    12. STORY-LINE THE DEVIL'S COLONY BY BILL SCHWEIGART:In The Devil's Colony, Bill Schweigart, once again brings together his team of monster hunters. In the New Jersey Pine Barrens, Ben, Lindsay, Erica, Alex, Richard, and Davis face the ultimate evil. Once more they are all facing monsters and death.Henry Drexler, Richard's old partner owns a compound, Välkommen, in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Although the name means "welcome", Välkommen's anything but welcoming once you get inside. Drexler takes [...]


    13. When I read the description for Bill Schweigart's THE DEVIL'S COLONY I was instantly intrigued. Monsters, skinheads, "a chilling decent into horror and human depravity". Sign me up! The only problem was that I didn't realize this was book three in a trilogy - I found this out halfway through the book, too. Ben McKelvie had a good job, a nice house, a beautiful fiancée, until a bloodthirsty shapeshifter took it all away. Ever since, he’s been chasing supernatural beings and monsters all across [...]


    14. Unlike the two previous entries, The Devil’s Colony is written more along the lines of a political thriller than a horror novel. For most of the story, the crimes perpetrated are of human origin, having nothing supernatural about them. It’s more of a suspense novel, except for that hovering expectation of supernatural dread. After all, this is the third in a trilogy of stories about men and monsters, so there have to be monsters lurking somewhere.When they do appear, the monsters will satisf [...]


    15. The Devil's Colony is the third installment of Schweigart's monster hunting trilogy. There are a lot of references to events from the first two books, so it's recommended that readers interested in this book go back and read the first two books. This one takes place in a neo-Nazi settlement located in the Pine Barrens. I think the thing I liked the most about this book was that it featured not just your typical supernatural monsters, but also the very real monsters we encounter in our lives as h [...]


    16. The team gathered by Richard Severance is called into action. They are protectors not quacks as they have been called by tv reporters. Richard has had a meeting with his old mentor Henry Drexler. Drexler's father was a Nazi SS colornel charged with finding out the truth of folktales, fairy tales and myths to find occult weapons for the German Reich. He was stranded in Pine Barrens, New Jersey when the war ended. Henry and Richard ended their meeting as enemies not as the friends they once were. [...]


    17. This is the third book in this series, and I've enjoyed them all. Here, wealthy Richard Severance arranges a meeting with a former colleague named Henry Drexler. Richard called this man friend once upon a time and the two scoured the earth for Richard's beloved cryptids. Now it seems lines have been drawn and Richard and Drexler are no longer on the same side. It seems Drexler has embraced his father's Nazi ties and politics and may also be responsible for the cryptid run-ins that nearly cost Ri [...]


    18. Haven’t read the other two books? Stop now and read those first!*-*-*-*-*-*-*-So, as I write this review, I’m a little bummed. See, reading the author’s notes in the end of the book, it’s clear that this series is at an end. Oh, he clearly said it was a trilogy, but so many trilogies become…um…an infinite playlist of plots?I’ll respect the author’s wish to leave this particular at an end. (With a little quiet plea saying, maybe just one more?)In The Devil’s Colony, Bill Schweig [...]


    19. I received a digital copy of this novel through NetGalley, and nowhere did it say that it was the third book in a trilogy. So I went into it with no knowledge of the two books that came before. For the first half of the book, it didn't matter. It was a pretty straightforward novel about a group of paranormal investigators who have to infiltrate a white supremacists' camp in order to determine whether they're using supernatural creatures to start a holy race war. A little over halfway through, th [...]


    20. Thank you to NetGalley andBill Schweigart for the opportunity to read the third cryptid, suspense, horror, magic and miracle based novel. The Devil's Colony will stand alone, but I recommend going back toThe Beast of Barcroft and "Northwoods" to get acquainted with the quirky, unique and talented characters.Monsters come in all shapes and sizes; the worst it seems come disguised as a human-being.


    21. Bill Schweigart’s final book in his supernatural thriller series starts with a lot of promise but is ultimately let down by uninteresting story and bland characters.In it, a trio of supernatural hunters investigate a private neo-Nazi style compound in the New Jersey Pine Barrens who may have summoned a deadly monster to the camp.After an pulse-racing introduction to the camp in the prologue, the story stumbles with a slow, stagnating plot and with a wash of characters that sound and talk the s [...]


    22. I'd actually give this book between 3.5 to 4 stars. It was a fun read, but I didn't know going into it that it was the second (or possibly 3rd) novel in a series of recurring characters. So, there was a lot I didn't understand, inside jokes, and references to things that occurred in the first book that weren't fully rehashed in this book. I still enjoyed the read and will probably go back and read the first one so I'll understand this one better. The characters were likeable, there was a pretty [...]


    23. I simply love this series! I totally enjoyed the first two books, and this one is not an exception. I can't even say the author's last name, much less spell it, but Bill S. has become a favorite author of mine. Thankfully the book titles stick in my head easily.The 3rd book in this series, evil in some of it's worst forms is involved. I have to say, wow, woah and whew! This book is a roller coaster and this series is one of my favorites. Sigh, the end of the series already? I hope the author wri [...]


    24. I do not believe in monsters, even though I think I have known a couple in my lifetime. But I am talking about golems, djinns or other such mental fabrications. However, every time I read a Bill Schweigart novel I find myself glued to it. It is easy to release any preconceived notions when the writing is that good and as such it is easy for me to recommend this book for readers who like bump in the night, guts and gore fantasy, knowing that as soon as I have finished the book I will return to my [...]


    25. This was a brilliant book, which I later found out had two instalments previously, which I am definitely going to read.It worked well as a standalone however and read like an episode of Supernatural or something, with the story flowing at a fast pace.The characters were great and I really cared what happened to them, the supernatural element kept my interest and was original and descriptive throughout.Highly recommend this author and will read more.


    26. This one was as good as The Beast of Bancroft and Northwoods. Great ideas and descriptions that make this a book you just can't put down. The team reassembles and perform unbelievable feats against unimaginable, odds once again. This was great fun but with a dark side and a conclusion which was really memorable.


    27. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Another highly enjoyable thriller from this excellent author. In this 3rd installment in his Beast of Barcroft series, you will find his evolving characters roaming the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, searching for supernatural monsters. Recommended to perhaps read the 1st 2 installments first.


    28. I received this arc from Netgalley. An exciting read! I've read other books by this author and was glad to get my hands on this one. Action packed with a few humorous bits thrown in. Recommended.


    29. Really enjoyed reading this. In a strange twisted way it's almost believable! Definitely recommend if you're after something that'll take you out of your comfort zone. I finished this weeks ago, and I'm still thinking about it! Definitely a sign of a great read!
