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, and he 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 towards 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.

Original, Compelling and Action-packed
Yes! A fantastic and fantastical tale... unlike anything else. Wonderful characters and an unforgettable setting.
The steel and copper forest in Old Orleans and the battle that takes place upon the city's walls.
He captured the main character's voice well, and brought the others to life, doing justice to the diverse cast.
Yes--- though broke it up over a week.
Highly recommend this--fans of Hunger Games, Maze Runner, the Mel Gibson Mad Max movies, the Road. Not a pleasant world to be in sometimes, but truly a rewarding story where I never what was coming next.
