Koli's exile from his town of Mythen Rood has led to danger and adventure. When he learned that the Ramparts, the protectors of Mythen Rood, were in a conspiracy to keep the power of technology to themselves, they cast him out into the lethal forest. But against all odds, he survived. Now, he's looking for long-lost London - a mythical city with ancient tech that could help save the future of humanity. Meanwhile, Mythen Rood is being besieged by disease. Spinner, Koli's childhood friend, must find out a way to save the town and its residents from certain death.
This novel was a great continuation of The Book of Koli. It was well-written and built further on the world Carey created in the first book. The story was intriguing, as were the settings, and the characters showed growth and were not static and boring. The addition of Spinner's perspective was also interesting and made the book feel more complete - as it showed what was happening back at Mythen Rood. Carey created a novel that expanded on the world of the original story, and I really enjoyed reading it. I would definitely recommend this book.
