The Colony by A. J. Colucci
Remember those cheesy horror movies where a tiny insect was mutated into gigantic proportions and threatened to take over the world? When I was a kid I found them scary. Good thing those movie writers didn’t have Colucci’s book as a script or I would have never slept again. What’s scarier than a 10-story tall ant? Normal-sized mutated ants that eat any living creature they can find. And when all the rats, bugs and other critters have been devoured what’s left to eat on the island of Manhattan? You guessed it. Humans. Not cool. Not cool at all. But oh so great to read.
This is a smartly written quickly moving novel that will have you squirming and screaming but loving it all the same. If you miss the creatures gone bad of Stephen King and Michael Crichton you’ll really enjoy this one.
