Crossroads of Canopy (Titan's Forest, #1) by Thoraiya Dyer

Into the Wild

Read Crossroads of Canopy (Titan's Forest, #1) Online Free - At the highest level of a giant forest, thirteen kingdoms fit seamlessly together to form the great city of Canopy. Thirteen goddesses and gods rule this realm and are continuously reincarnated into human bodies. Canopy’s position in the sun, however, is not without its dark side. The nation’s opulence comes from the labor of slaves, and below its fruitful boughs are two other realms: Understorey and Floor, whose deprived citizens yearn for Canopy’s splendor.

Unar, a determined but destitute young woman, escapes her parents’ plot to sell her into slavery by being selected to serve in the Garden under the goddess Audblayin, ruler of growth and fertility. As a Gardener, she yearns to become Audblayin’s next Bodyguard while also growing sympathetic towards Canopy's slaves.

When Audblayin dies, Unar sees her opportunity for glory – at the risk of descending into the unknown dangers of Understorey to look for a 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 was sent this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a review * I had this on my most-anticipated list for 2017. I heard that it was a story set in the top of a canopy, with three divided worlds, Canopy, Understory and Floor, and I knew it sounded just like something I would love. I...

Canopy is a place that lies at the top branches of a great forest, and it's ruled over by thirteen gods and goddesses who die and reincarnate into different bodies, protecting the people who are under their rule. The problem is that there are other people who weren't fortunate enough to have been...

On the face of it, 'Crossroads of Canopy' begs comparison to Zilpha Keatley Snyder's classic 'Below the Root,' and the more recent 'Updraft' by Fran Wilde. All three novels feature a culture that lives in the treetops, with a literal 'underclass' segregated to the forest floor, strong themes of s...

2.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum Crossroads of Canopy could have been a brilliant debut; it almost hurts to have to talk about why it didn’t work for me. While Thoraiya Dyer’s vision of a vibrant and lush world high above the forest floor is nothing shor...

1.5 out of 5 stars -- see this review and others at The Speculative Shelf. My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. I maintain that if a book has tree-centric cover art, designed by Marc Simonetti (see Age of Myth), I will drop everythi...

3-3.5ish. The start of a new fantasy trilogy about a giant forest and the hierarchies of its peoples and realms. Flowery, meandering at times, but half way through showed real promise. Full video review:

I enjoyed this book. This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, thanks to a gorgeous cover and an interesting pitch, and I’m pleased to say it didn’t disappoint. I’m a pretty optimistic reader – if I choose to pick a book up, it has to work hard for me to put it down again – so take m...
