Billionaire Saul Abercrombie owns a vast tract of land on the Pembrokeshire coast. By restoring the original forest that covered the area before medieval times, he believes he will rekindle the spirits of ancient folklore. But the re-planting of the forest will revive an altogether darker and more dangerous entity - and young arboreal expert Tom Curtis will find himself engaging in an epic, ancient battle between good and evil. A battle in which there can be only one survivor.
Former magazine editor Francis Cottam is the author of four novels and the novelization of a feature film. His debut novel The Firefighter was shortlisted for the W.H. Smith Literature award. It was followed by Hamer's War, Slapton Sands and A Shadow on the Sun. All four of these novels are either set in, or examine the repercussions of the Second World War.
The Firefighter examines one man's experience of the most intense period of the London Blitz. Hamer's War takes as its theme the moral dilemma facing a brave German soldier recovering from a wound sustained in battle on the Eastern Front.
The Resident is the novelization of a film made by the resurgent Hammer production company. Along with Slapton Sands and A Shadow on the Sun, it is available for download on Kindle.
Francis is the author of a series of paranormal thrillers published under the pen name F.G. Cottam

Cottam and Rintoul make a great team!
This is my third Cottam book and so far he's 3 for 3 for me. The plot of this one was very intriguing and the mystery of it all kept me hooked. But if this is your first time hearing about F.G. Cottam I recommend first checking out "The Colony" or "Brodmaw Bay' and if you like what you hear there, you'll like this one too. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this book but it wasn't quite the 5 star the other two were. As for the narration, I really don't think anyone could narrate Cottam's books better than David Rintoul. He gets so into it he'll have you biting your nails and sitting on the edge of your seat. And I'm really glad he does a great job with all the voices cause this book does flow right into different scenes and character perspectives without pause which did sometimes get me confused. Overall, this book has everything I love about Cottam's writing; its darkly atmospheric, contains nail biting suspense and has the perfect amount of mystery and horror. Furthermore, Cottam creates captivating plots with life-like characters encountering truly evil and ancient supernatural beings and creatures. Can't wait for the next one!
