Seventeen-year-old Banyan is a tree builder. Using salvaged scrap
metal, he creates forests for rich patrons who seek a reprieve from the desolate
landscape. Although Banyan’s never seen a real tree—they were destroyed more
than a century ago—his missing father used to tell him stories about the Old
World. Everything changes when Banyan meets a mysterious woman with a strange
tattoo: a map to the last living trees on earth. Banyan soon sets off across a
wasteland from which few return. Those who make it past the pirates and
poachers can’t escape the locusts—the locusts that now feed on human flesh. But
Banyan isn’t the only one looking for the trees, and he’s running out of time.
Unsure of whom to
trust, he’s forced to make an alliance with Alpha, a beautiful, dangerous
pirate with an agenda of her own. As they race toward a promised land that
might be a myth, Banyan makes shocking discoveries about his family, his past,
and how far people will go to bring back the trees. Download and start listening now!
