"There's a brilliant madness to this deadly post-apocalyptic world, filled with complex characters, shifting loyalties, and layers of mystery... a nonstop adventure" - Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

Mad Max meets Lord of the Rings in this first installment of the Rootless trilogy . . .

17-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, his missing father used to tell him stories about the way they grew in the old world . . . before they were destroyed by the plagues of locusts that now feed on human flesh.

When Banyan meets a mysterious woman with a strange tattoo that offers a clue to the whereabouts of the last living trees, he sets off across a wasteland full of desert pirates, underground poachers and the agents of a sinister corporation that controls the last remaining source of food. 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 uneasy alliance with Alpha, an alluring, dangerous pirate with an agenda of her own. As they race towards a promised land that might only be a myth, Banyan makes shocking discoveries about his family, his past, and how far people will go to bring back the trees.
