THE RIFT

by Chris Howard
Release date: April 25, 2014
 

About the Book

“There's a brilliant madness to this deadly post­apocalyptic world, filled with complex characters, shifting loyalties, and layers of mystery... a nonstop adventure” ­ Publishers Weekly, starred review of ROOTLESS
 
Banyan was once a tree builder, creating scrap­metal forests for rich clients in a barren burned­out world. Now he's traded his scaffolds for lookouts, his tools for guns. On a stolen boat, surrounded by a mutinous crew, Banyan has escaped from Promise Island with the last living trees on earth, and he's desperate to smuggle them to safety.
 
But powerful enemies are in pursuit, seeking to claim the trees for themselves. To reach a safe haven, Banyan will need the help of the pirate girl he loves, Alpha, his broken friend, Crow, and his troubled sister, Zee. Only together can they cross the mysterious molten wasteland of THE RIFT. And when Banyan discovers a new threat to Alpha's life, he fears he'll lose not only the trees they sacrificed so much to find, but the girl who inspires him and gives him hope.
 
Howard's "gift for the phantasmagoric" (Kirkus) is on full display in this thrilling second book of the Rootless trilogy.

I think the cover is quite beautiful, I love the color scheme most of all. The synopsis is different, I think I may enjoy the book. Sadly, the idea of a shortage of trees seems like one that could be real in a future world.
