Koli is a boy who is afraid of trees. After the world broke down all the plants were dying, so people made them stronger. Now everyone is afraid of them. And it’s not just the trees. The animals have turned against us too. Not to mention the Shunned Men, the outcasts outside the village walls. If Koli can wake the technology of the old world, he thinks he won’t have to be afraid of anything again. He’s wrong.
