Everything that lives hates us...

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

Here comes all knowing AI to save us all
The author creates an interesting post apocalyptic world—but then fails to use it.
Murderous trees terrible animals. Until they become inconvenient for the plot and are forgotten.
The main character is hard to like due to being naive and slightly dull. I guess we are supposed to find honesty in his below avg IQ but sure didn’t work for me.
Characters don’t act like people would but rather are used to move a slow moving plot.
And the worst is once again we get an all knowing AI construct to save the day. We need the AI because humans are stupid see. The novelties of this book keep on coming... And this AI is branded Sony in case you had any illusions this screenplay draft, wait book, was anything legit.
If that AI cliche doesn’t excite you then this book may not be a good idea.
