Overview

The highly-anticipated fantasy debut from Aurealis and Ditmar Award-winning author Thoraiya Dyer, set in a giant mythical rainforest controlled by living gods


Unar dreams of greatness.

Determined but destitute, she escapes her parents plot to sell her into slavery. Now she serves in the Garden of the goddess Audblayin, ruler of growth and fertility.

But when Audblayin dies, Unar sees her opportunity for glory at the risk of descending into the unknown dangers of Understorey to look for a reincarnated newborn god. In its depths, she discovers new forms of magic, lost family connections, and murmurs of a revolution that could cost Unar her chance or grant it by destroying the home she loves.

I am majorly impressed with Thoraiya Dyer's Crossroads of Canopy. A unique, gorgeous, and dangerous world, a stubborn female hero, and a writer to watch Tamora Pierce

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.)
