      ..... "She spun and stared down upon me and I felt naked

      ..... "She spun and stared down upon me and I felt naked beneath the wildness of her eyes. I felt alive. Unknown. And I knew then that the World contained so many things I would never understand"... 

    In what initially seems to be an unimaginable place, the World created by Howard quickly encapsulates the reader and becomes all too conceivable through his vivid narrative. Intertwined story lines engage incredible intrigue and I ripped through Howard's first novel in one sitting and have already since read it another two times, plus purchased for all my holiday gifts to friends, family young and old. Pages turn with such eagerness to find out the next vital twist in an enthralling tale, I'm highly anticipating ROOTLESS to continue with more follow-up adventures. I consider this a must read and certainly an author for readers of all ages to learn about, follow and be excited for all of what's to come from his innovative and inspired mind.

    Rootless is a fantastic read and I can't recommend it enough! The characters, setting and the riveting story engage you from the very first page and keep you wanting more until the very last. Howard did an incredible job painting a dark and desperate world where the stakes are high and the quest to save the last glimpse of nature is reminder of just how precious our world is. The action and excitement kept my fingers flipping page after page, and I found myself unable to put the book down. I literally walked my daily commute with my nose buried in Banyan's journey until the very last second possible and anxiously awaited to enter it all day long. I can't wait to read the sequel and will be waiting first in line when it's released! Why are you still reading this review? Get yourself a copy and get lost in the world of Rootless now, you won't forget it!

    Chris Howard has a way with words that draws you in and makes you entwined with the characters in the story. Once you start reading his novel, it is hard to put down. He is immensely creative and I can't wait to read what happens in the next book!

    Had it 3 days & already reading it a second time

    I was initially drawn to the book because of previews I read on other forums about the plot. But once it arrived, I found myself unable to put it down. Full of imagery & easy to read yet still with dimensional characters, Rootless had me hooked. Luckily I've had several days off from work to completely rip through the book and explore world created therein. And I found the arc of the story kept me always wanting to read what Banyan and Company would be facing next. Not only will adults like it, but it's an easy, digestible, appropriate read for younger literary explorers, too. Additionally, super sweet jacket design.
