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 has been cast out from Mythen Rood. Behind him are his family and the safety of the known. Ahead, the embrace of the deadly forests awaits.
But Koli heard a story, once. A story about lost London, where the tech of old times was so plentiful it was just lying on the streets. And if he can safely lead Ursula, Cup and Monono to this sparkling city, maybe he can save the rest of humanity, too.
In a world where a journey of two miles is an odyssey, he’s going to walk two hundred. But the city is not what it once was…and around him, Ingland is facing something it hasn’t seen in three centuries: war.
The Trials of Koli is the second instalment in the Rampart Trilogy and I am so excited for its release. I read and loved The Book of Koli a few months ago and I absolutely loved it. The story ended on a bit of a cliffhanger so I’m so excited to see where the next instalment takes us. Carey has created such a fascinating world in this series and as soon as I finished book one I was desperate for more. The characters are also brilliant in this one and if you want to read my full review of this you can check it out here! M R Carey is an author I definitely want to read more from and I think I might try some of his back catalogue while I’m waiting on the release of The Trials of Koli. Not too much longer to go though, the book is publishing September 15th from Orbit Books.
