Description

'ENTHRALLING . . . A JOURNEY AS PERILOUS AS IT IS ENLIGHTENING' Guardian on The Book of Koli

The journey through M. R. Carey's 'immersive, impeccably rendered world' (Kirkus) continues in The Trials of Koli - the second book of the Rampart trilogy.

Koli has been cast from his village and into the strange and deadly forest beyond. But he heard a story, once. A story about lost London, and the mysterious tech of the old times that was there. And if Koli can find it, there may be a way for him to redeem himself - by saving what's left of humanity.

Praise for The Trials of Koli:

'This series just gets better and better. Clever, compassionate and genuinely immersive' Joanne Harris

'A broken world that is both marvellously expansive and claustrophobically menacing' Publisher's 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

'This is a bold, unique world - be prepared to be engrossed' SciFiNow


Look out for the final novel in the Rampart trilogy: The Fall of Koli
