Publisher's summary

"Absorbing, stunning, and emotionally rich." (Locus)

The journey through M. R. Carey's "immersive, impeccably rendered world" (Kirkus) - a world in which nature has turned against us - continues in The Trials of Koli, book two of the Rampart Trilogy.

The earth wants to swallow us whole....

Koli never planned to set foot outside his small village. He knew that beyond its walls lay a fearsome landscape filled with choker trees, vicious beasts, and Shunned men. But when he was exiled, he had no choice but to journey out into this strange world where every moment is a fight for survival.

And it's not just Koli's life that is threatened. Whole villages just like his are dying out.

But Koli heard a story, once. A story about lost London, and the mysterious tech of the Old Times that may still be there. If he can find it, there may still be a way for him to change his own fate - by saving the lives of those who are left.

Critic reviews

"A broken world that is both marvelously expansive and claustrophobically menacing. Fans of postapocalyptic science fiction will find plenty to hold their attention." (Publishers Weekly)

"If you loved M.R. Carey's The Book of Koli, you will love The Trials of Koli just as much, if not more... Absorbing, stunning, and emotionally rich." (Locus on The Trials of Koli)
