Orphans are snagged from their beds and used in the Warden's dark experiments. Those who seek asylum in the forest must survive the dangers of the night, when the forest trees uproot and roam free.
Fifteen-year-old Kole, with the help of his mentor, Russé, has adapted. He's learned to tame the rampant trees and protect the orphans. But when one of the Warden's mutated creatures discovers the camp and sets it aflame, Kole's life is upturned and the refugees' haven is lost.
Kole must convince the others to make a stand to save themselves—and all their people—from the anguish of becoming the next subjects of brutal experiments. Yet what chance does a rag-tag band of refugees have against the malevolent power and magic of the Warden and his vile creations?

About the Author
EDITOR: For me, editing is taking something I already love and helping it grow. I appreciate thick skin and an open mind. In writing, often both are necessary for success. After all, writing is rewriting.
