The Book of Koli

The Book of Koli

‘A captivating start to what promises to be an epic post-apocalyptic fable’ Kirkus

EVERYTHING THAT LIVES HATES US . . .

When the world broke down, all the plants were dying. We tried to make them stronger, but we went too far.

Koli has lived in the small village of Mythen Rood his entire life. Beyond its walls lies an unrecognisable landscape. A place where overgrown forests are filled with choker trees and deadly seeds will kill you where you stand. And if they don’t get you, the Shunned Men will.

Koli believes the first rule of survival is to never venture beyond the walls.

He’s wrong.

From the author of the million-copy bestselling The Girl With All the Gifts comes The Book of Koli – the start of a breathtakingly original new trilogy set in a mesmerising and deadly future world.

‘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

Look out for the next novels in the trilogy: THE TRIALS OF KOLI and THE FALL OF KOLI
