Summary
The realm of Canopy is divided into 13 kingdoms, each ruled by a different god or goddess. The privileged Upper Canopians enjoy sunlight and fresh fruit, while Understorey denizens subsist on grubs. When her destitute parents decide to sell her into slavery, 13-year-old Unar runs away and dedicates herself to the goddess Audblayin. With her affinity for magic, she hopes to serve as the personal bodyguard of Audblayin's next avatar, thus rising above her humble origins. Detailed world-building and a realistically flawed heroine distinguish this debut by an Australian writer, which is the 1st book in a projected series. -- Description by Gillian Speace
