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 see her opportunity for glory – at the risk of descending into the unknown dangers of Understorey to look for a reincarnate 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 homes she loves.
This story is divided into four parts Part 1 -Dry Season, Part 2 -Wet Season, Part 3 – Drowning Season and Part 4 – Season for Growth. It takes place in a giant forest called Canopy and it’s ruled by thirteen gods and goddesses and the world is divided into three Canopy, Understory and Floor.
We follow our main character Unar, who runs away from her home after finding out her parents were going to sell her as a slave and ends up in a temple pledging herself to one of the goddess, there she realizes she has an affinity for magic and it’s stronger than the others in the temple.
I was excited to finally read this story but I found Unar the main character to be annoying, selfish and I didn’t like the romance I found it a bit awkward.
I love the concept of the story and the world building is very unique, the writing was a bit confusing at time, nothing was fully explained but I think and I’m hoping that the second book will have more and we’ll hopefully get a better development of characters and more of the world.
Even though this was not a 5 stars read for m and I struggle with it at the beginning, I did enjoyed it and will continue with the series.
