The "captivating start to what promises to be an epic post-apocalyptic fable" from one of the most inventive voices in contemporary fiction, The Book of Koli is the unforgettable story of a young boy struggling to find his place in a world where nature itself has turned against humanity. ( Kirkus)
Everything that lives hates us...
Beyond the walls of the small village of Mythen Rood lies an unrecognizable landscape. A place where overgrown forests are filled with choker trees and deadly seeds that will kill you where you stand. And if they don't get you, one of the dangerous shunned men will.
Koli has lived in Mythen Rood his entire life. He believes the first rule of survival is that you don't venture too far beyond the walls.
