'This is a BEAUTIFUL book. Gripping, engaging, and absolutely worth the time it takes to burrow yourself into its reality. I can't recommend it highly enough' Seanan McGuire The Book of Koli begins a breathtakingly original new trilogy set in a strange and deadly world of our own making.

Beyond the walls of the small village of Mythen Rood lies an unrecognisable 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, the 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.

He's wrong.

'A captivating start to what promises to be an epic post-apocalyptic fable . . . Narrator Koli's inquisitive mind and kind heart make him the perfect guide to Carey's immersive, impeccably rendered world' Kirkus 'Carey writes with compassion and fire - strange and surprising and humane' Lauren Beukes 'Koli embarks on a journey as perilous as it is enlightening . . . Enthralling' Guardian 'An ingenious, dizzily provocative novel . . . Carey invents a fantastic far-future world, finding humanity in unlikely places' Helen Marshall, World Fantasy Award-winning author 'A thought-provoking and deeply engaging story' C. A. Fletcher, author of A Boy and his Dog At The End of the World Look out for the next novels in the trilogy: THE TRIALS OF KOLI and THE FALL OF KOLI
