Orphans are snagged from their beds…

…used in the Warden’s dark experiments.


Those who seek asylum in the forest must survive the dangers of the night, when the forest trees uproot and roam free.


Fifteen-year-old Kole, with the help of his mentor, Russé, has adapted. He’s learned to tame the rampant trees and protect the orphans.


When one of the Warden’s mutated creatures discovers the camp, setting it aflame, Kole’s life is upturned and the refugees’ safe hiding place is lost.


Kole must convince the others to make a stand to save themselves—and all their people—from the anguish of being the subjects of brutal experiments.


But what chance does a rag-tag band of refugees have against the malevolent power and magic of the Warden and his vile creations?
