Coryn Williams has grown up in the megacity of Seacouver, where her every need is provided for—except satisfaction with her life. After her parents’ suicides, her sister Lou fled the city to work on a rewilding crew, restoring lands once driven to the brink of ecological disaster by humans to a more natural state. Finally of age, Coryn leaves the city with her companion robot to look for her sister. But the outside world is not what she expects—it is rougher and more dangerous, and while some people help her, some resent the city and some covet her most precious resource: her companion robot. As Coryn struggles toward her sister, she uncovers a group of people with a sinister agenda that may endanger Seacouver. When Coryn finally finds her sister, Lou has secrets she won’t share. Can Coryn and Lou learn to trust each other in order to discover the truth hidden behind the surface and to save both Seacouver and the rewilded lands?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Frighteningly believable. The Seacouver and outlying areas that Coryn travels through are well sketched and thought through, and just close enough to our present to make the reader a little queasy.” RT Book Reviews
“The details of the world are reflected through the difficult and lovely relationship between the sisters. The ecological slant to the discontent typically found in a dystopian novel is pointed and well reasoned.” Booklist
“A vivid picture of a world rebuilding from the edge of ecological ruin and the seeming conflicts between civilization and the nature it depends on.” Ramez Naam, award-winning author of the Nexus series
"Wilders is a fantastic voyage into a beautifully intricate solarpunk future. Cooper’s work is philosophically and psychologically relevant. Throughout Wilders, she gracefully examines the tensions between emerging technologies, human nature, and our ecosystem.” Gray Scott, futurist and techno-philosopher
"Wilders is a vision of future America that’s by turns exhilarating and terrifying. With a heroine you can genuinely root for and a world that’s an all-too-likely outcome of our generation’s choices, Wilders is one of the best near-future adventures in years. Combining the ecology of rewilding, next-gen robotics, and the savage politics of a post-global America, this is a book that raises and answers more questions than most writers manage in an entire series. And there’s more to come!” Karl Schroeder, award-winning author of Lockstep
