ABOUT THE BOOK
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 parent's 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.
