Publisher's Summary

The only crop left ... is human.
After genetically altered weeds devastate Earth's croplands, Dr. Tula Macoby believes photosynthetic skin can save the human race. Her people single-mindedly embark on a mission to convert the cannibals roaming what's left of Earth. But when Levi, a peaceful stranger, refuses alteration, Tula doesn't think the only options should be conversion or death.
Levi Kraybill, a devout member of the Old Order, left his Holdout farmland to seek a cure for his terminally ill son. Genetic manipulation is a sin, but Levi will do almost anything for the life of his child. When he's captured, he's sure he's damned, and his only escape will be death.
Tula's superiors schedule Levi's euthanization, and she risks everything to set the innocent man free. Now she and Levi are outlaws with her people, and she's an abomination with his. Can they find sanctuary in a cannibal wasteland?

Most Helpful

A solid science fiction dystopian tale

Would you listen to Botanicaust again? Why?

I found the different societies very interesting, and thought this was an excellent way to begin a new series. The world building is very complex although the author laid a good foundation for more to come. It's one that you find interesting and then it drags you back to get a better understanding.

What other book might you compare Botanicaust to, and why?

I thought it was very unique. And good for it. It gives you twists and turns, there is betrayal characters you grow to care about and lots of action. Once I found my footing, I enjoyed the uniqueness of the world and the premise.

What does Meghan Kelly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Really good pace. Narration doesn't feel like your simply getting someone to read it to you, nor is it over played in terms of being too theatrical. A nice voice that helps get you into the story.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What does the world do when all the crops are gone? Wait and see
