The Book of Koli by M.R. Carey

Okay then. You and me, dopey boy, against the world. And if the world wins, we’ll say they cheated.



Beyond the walls of the small village of Mythen Rood lies an unrecognizable world. A world where overgrown forests are filled with choker trees and deadly vines and seeds that will kill you where you stand. And if they don’t get you, one of the dangerous shunned men will.

Koli has lived in Mythen Rood his entire life. He knows the first rule of survival is that you don’t venture beyond the walls.

What he doesn’t know is — what happens when you aren’t given a choice?


I’ve not read anything from this author before this. So many great reviews from his series, The Girl With All The Gifts, and now I wanna get a hold of that series. Ok so The Book of Koli is a science fiction story of how anything tech/ weapon is something to be controlled. However not everyone can control it. I’ll stop there.

This is a pretty good tale of how the world looks like after so much has happened. It’s almost like having to start over. Koli is the protagonist in the story. He is the one who uncovers the truth about the tech. It was a pretty good read in my opinion. It has action, friendship, and some scenes makes you feel sorry for him. Moderate pace for me. Hmm come to think of it, I pretty much imagined this as a show lol. Maybe it could be 🤔 This the the first book of the series and I hope everyone will enjoy it.  I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. Maybe I’ll talk about it some more once it’s out.

This was an arc ebook from Netgalley. Thank you for it! To be published on April 14, 2020 (aka my birthday FYI 😉)
