The Wall by Mikey Campling (Colony B – Book 1) ★★★★☆
Genre: Science Fiction
I received a copy of this book for free. All opinions are honest and my own.
The wall is safety. The wall is survival. The wall is life.
Far from Earth and shipwrecked on a desolate alien planet, a band of brave settlers strive to carve out a life for themselves on a range of hills while battling to hold back the carpet of deadly microorganisms that creeps across the lowlands below, devouring all in its path.
The settlers survive from day to day, but their lives are thrown into chaos on one fateful night when five of their young men and women go missing. And that’s when they see the lights. Out there in the deadly wasteland, there are headlights carving through the darkness.
Someone is coming. And perhaps, they mean to stay.
Find out more when you explore the world of Colony B, but for your own safety, stay behind the wall.
The Wall is the first book in a new serialized story from Mikey Campling.
This is the first time I’ve read any part of a serialized story. I was worried I’d feel like the story hadn’t got any where and was just building to the next installment. However, this felt really well set up. While obviously not a full story, we were given just enough action and plot to feel satisfied, and keep us on edge for the next installment.
I really enjoyed this quick read. We get just the right amount of world building, a great setting, a variety of characters and a great twist all in in just over 100 pages.
The next installment is due to be published in September, and I can’t wait to see where the story goes.
