The first in a new, brilliantly realised dystopian trilogy, The Book of Koli focuses on the small hamlet of Mythen Rood and the dangerous, barren landscape that lies beyond its walls. Stark and evocative, Carey’s accomplished novel is a breath-taking feat of imagination.
Everything that lives hates us...
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.
The Book of Koli begins a breathtakingly original new trilogy set in a strange and deadly world of our own making.

'Carey writes with compassion and fire - strange and surprising and humane' - Lauren Beukes
