The Treemakers: Book one in the YA Dystopian Scifi Epic (The Treemakers Trilogy – 1) by Christina L. Rozelle

Sixteen-year-old Joy Montgomery, daughter of Zephyr the Magnificent, the great magician, can only reminisce of better times. Before the Superiors. Before the uprisings. Long ago. Before the dying Earth ripped the family she loved away from her. She can only dream of the adventure life must’ve been before their ancestors brought the apocalyptic devastation in the form of disastrous climate change.

In this desolate dystopian future, the Greenleigh orphans are “privileged” with the task of building mechanical trees for the post-apocalyptic survivors in Bygonne, so their world behind The Wall can breathe another day, and so the Superiors may continue their malevolent reign.

Lured by a yearning for freedom, tenacious curiosity, and hunger for adventure, Joy discovers hope and magic amid the misery, and power in her promise to care for those remaining, whom she loves enough to risk her life for. To save them, herself, and the boy she adores from the abuse and slavery by the Superiors, Joy must entrust the aid of an unlikely ally who harbors a dangerous secret.

With an intriguing stranger at the helm, Joy and the treemakers embark on an intense and terrifying, yet liberating quest for the truth about the existence of the forbidden paradise beyond The Wall.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

“Loved this book so much, from the very outset I knew this was a book for me that would immediately be all encompassing. For the few days that I was reading it I was totally invested in this dark world of terror and fear and it was all I could think about, for a long while I thought about the long suffering and selflessness of the main character Momma Joy, and how she pushed herself forward at every challenge. This dystopian setting had echoes of the misery of Orwell’s ‘1984’, it had the pace of action films such as ‘The Fifth Element’ or ‘Twelve Monkeys’, and I felt there was a little homage to ‘A town like Alice’… The Treemakers has the punch, detail, and depth of all of those combined. The realism was sublime, moments of realisation relating to Joy’s past really hit deep, made me smile, truly resonated within me, the darker moments too are just as hard-hitting, and make this book a dizzying rollercoaster of emotions.

I cannot recommend this book high enough, it is an energetic, carefully written adventure into a world that could be, a place that wouldn’t be out of step in our nightmares, and full of characters that you are willing them on to succeed with every page. An absolute triumph of a book, utterly entertaining, I wish there were more of them… and I get the feeling there will be in the future. Absolute brilliant read.”

“The Treemakers” is an impressive debut from Christina L. Rozelle. Set in a dystopian future and after a cataclysmic event, the story is centered on the symbolically named, Joy, who lives in a world that is anything but.

Joy is a central figure in the work force of “Bygonne”, which primarily consists of children. Working for a shadowy group, the children are slaves, charged with producing metallic trees in order to sustain oxygen for their world. In Bygonne, people figuratively and literally, struggle to breathe.

The children are, however, as much a commodity as the materials they produce. Devoid of caring adults, Joy becomes the mother figure, trying to sustain some humanity in a world that relinquished it some time ago. Spinning hope, love and magic through her stories, Joy attempts to make sense of a world full of dangerous secrets.

In Bygonne, however, hope, love, and magic can get you killed. So, too, can emancipation. Told from Joy’s first person narration, “The Treemakers” is part environmental-warning and bio-punk. I’d recommend this work for readers of Young Adult and dystopian narratives.

This was a compelling read and at times, I longed for more information and backstory, but I am sure all secrets will be revealed in good time. Roll on the sequel!”

The Uncanny Valley: Tales from a Lost Town (The Uncanny Chronicles Book 1) by Gregory Miller and John York

The Uncanny Valley…

“…is a macabre serenade to a small town that may or may not exist, peopled with alive and dead denizens who wander about the hills and houses with creepy fluidity. Told by individual inhabitants, the stories recount tales of disappearing dead deer, enchanted gardens, invisible killer dogs, and rattlesnakes that fall from the sky; each contribution adds to a composite portrait that skitters between eerie, ghoulish, and poignant. Miller is a master storyteller, clearly delighting in his mischievous creations.”
