"I am impressed. A unique, gorgeous, and dangerous world, a stubborn female hero, and a writer to watch!" - Tamora Pierce

Unar dreams of greatness.

But achieving greatness is more difficult than she thinks.

Her hopes rest on becoming the next bodyguard to Audblayin, the rain forest's divine ruler of growth and fertility. But to earn that title, Unar must embark on a dangerous quest into the shadowy depths beneath the treetops. Down below, she must confront enemy tribesmen, battle notoriously giant monsters, and master frightening new magic.

Most importantly, Unar must forget all the truths she had sworn her life to uphold... and be willing to risk destroying the very home she loves to seize her destiny.

Lovely to read a fantasy novel that is entirely fresh, with new concepts and world-building. There are no dragons, elves, bearded short men with axes, etc, etc, etc.. The author has not only imagined new concepts but done a brilliant job of establishing a very solid, deeply realized universe. The rules, though different, make sense, and lives of the inhabitants of the Canopy feel real, gritty, and fully grounded. Excellent read, I look forward to more of this author.
