Description

"Lene Fogelberg's masterful debut novel tells an epic tale of love, loss, and profound connection. With lyrical prose and heart-racing action, The Lightning Tree stayed with me long after the story ended."-USA Today bestselling author Terri Giuliano Long




From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author Lene Fogelberg comes an interplay of fantasy, apocalypse, and reality in The Lightning Tree.




Flora Reed discovers a lifeless body in her front yard the morning after the last day of her junior year of high school. Matters get worse when more people from her small town are found dead under mysterious circumstances and police take an interest in the boy next door, Carl. Flora is convinced that Carl is innocent. Instead, she suspects that the deaths are somehow connected to her younger sister Fauna's tragic accident a year earlier. What she learns changes everything, and she has to race against time to prevent the killings from spreading.




Flora and a small group of friends soon find themselves at the onset of an apocalyptic battle between man and nature, with no one believing their story.




The Lightning Tree is the first installment of The Natural Intelligence Revolution Trilogy.




"Captivating! With lyrical prose and an engrossing combination of supernatural mystery and slow-burn romance, The Lightning Tree takes readers on an emotional journey as Flora Reed's dedication to her sister leads to a most unlikely discovery about her family's traumatic past and the future of the planet." -Amalie Jahn, author of Phoebe Unfired and The Next to Last Mistake

"The Lightning Tree is unlike anything I've ever read. It is an environmental thriller interlaced with tragically separated sisters, burgeoning romance, and elements of true horror. Lene Fogelberg is a refreshing new voice and I can't wait to see where the series goes next!" -Carolyn Cohagan, author of The Time Zero Trilogy




"We are at a tipping point in history. In The Lightning Tree, Fogelberg distills this message into a timely and important novel that compels the reader to confront a broken relationship with nature." -David Massey, award-winning author of Torn and Taken




"At the heart of Fogelberg's beautifully woven narrative The Lightning Tree is the need to make sense of a world that doesn't make sense anymore. By pushing the boundaries of reality and presenting the natural world as a key protagonist, she turns its fight for survival into our own." -Madeleine White, author of Mother of Floods
