Book two in a ground-breaking new series from the million-copy bestselling M. R. Carey - a modern masterpiece for fans of Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy
'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.
