"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.

"An engaging and beautifully wrought coming-of-age story." --Herald Sun (Australia)

An ambitious young woman fiercely chases her destiny through an enormous, lush forest in Dyers superb, epic, and hypnotic debut, which launches the Titans Forest trilogy. In the great Forest, where the trees are seven hundred people-lengths tall and a single tree can house an entire city, 13 gods inhabit the upper Canopy, where the brown-skinned elite live luxurious lives in the sun and are protected by a magical barrier that keeps out the poor pale citizens of the lower darker Understory and Floor. In Canopy, Unar pledges herself to Audblayin, the goddess of birth and life. Unar feels in her heart that when the goddess dies, she will be reincarnated as male and therefore will require a female bodyguard, a position Unar is eager to fill. But after rescuing a slave whos been sentenced to death, Unar must flee to Understory, where she witnesses the consequences of slavery, meets an angry little girl named Frog, learns humility from three supportive brothers, and is ensnared by a dangerous revolutionary, who enlists Unars powerful magic in her war to destroy the barrier and unite everyone into the so-called One Forest. Readers will be delighted by Dyers polished prose and an exquisite new world of intricate mythology, rituals, and politics. Agent: Evan Gregory, Ethan Ellenberg Literary. (Jan.)
