Summary

A dazzling eco-thriller set in a terrifying world with some chilling similarities to our own . . . In a devastated world where plants can no longer grow, 17-year-old Banyan scrapes together a living as a Tree Builder, creating metal forests for the elite. However, all that changes when Banyan meets a girl with a strange tattoo that contains the key to a priceless treasure--the last trees on the planet. When he learns that his missing father also left to find the trees, Banyan sets off across a wasteland from which no one returns. If the pirates and poachers don't get you, the locusts will. Ever since the plants died, the locusts have developed a taste for human flesh . . . But Banyan isn't the only one looking for the trees and is forced to make an uneasy alliance with Alpha, a beautiful, pink-haired pirate with a sharp tongue and even deadlier aim. As they race toward a legendary Zion that might well be a myth, Banyan makes some chilling discoveries about his family, his past, and the terrifying lengths to which scientists are willing to go to bring trees back to earth.
