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 Crossroads of Canopy has everything you expect from a great epic quests, fearless warriors, gods born again but all is transmuted, through the rich and vivid original setting, into something entirely new. Brian Staveley, author of The Last Mortal Bond Dyer presents a rich, brutal, fascinating world and an unforgettable heroine. Ilana C. Myer, author of Last Song Before Night A remarkable debut. What a delight to read a fantasy so different from the mainstream and so beautifully realised. Juliet Marillier, winner of the Aurealis Award and the Alex Award Imaginative, original, inclusive and fast-paced and exciting. Go get it and read it. Maybe twice. Pamela Freeman, author of The Castings Trilogy Dyer's writing seamlessly melds a lush and layered canopy setting and a complex magical culture to form a unique fantasy world, filled with memorable characters in constant jeopardy. Unar, a girl on the brink of womanhood, is at the heart of the tale. Feisty, opinionated, certain of her own destiny, she's a tough flawed heroine, one readers will not easily forget. Glenda Larke, author of The Stormlord Trilogy and The Forsaken Lands Trilogy Dyer is a writer of immense talent. Her powerful, distinctive voice makes Crossroads of Canopy a fully immersive read, so well-written and believable it will have you checking to see if the realms of Canopy, Understorey and Floor really exist. Kaaron Warren, author of Walking the Tree Thoraiya Dyer has woven a world of gods and magic, a merciless forest where the slightest misstep can send the unwary, the unworthy, or the simply unfortunate plunging to an unremarked doom. Guiding us through the heights of this remarkable place is a young woman, Unar. Scrappy, complex and surprisingly compassionate, she must fight to establish a place for herself among the trees. If Crossroads of Canopy explores the cost of caring, it also examines the even higher price of indifference. It is a riveting novel. A.M. Dellamonica, author of A Daughter of No Nation A wonderful, magical, poetic, tragic novel...a major achievement. Jenny Blackford, World Fantasy Award judge, author of The Priestess and the Slave The book is quite marvelous. Tons of cultural richness. Complex and casually cruel...Thoraiya Dyer is the writer I most want to infect people with. Anna Tambour, World Fantasy Award-shortlisted author of Crandolin The combination of strange and familiar gives Dyer's fiction the power wielded by the best SF. The stories unerringly find the human inside the bizarre. These are unsettling, poignant, marvellous. Read them. You will be glad you did. Nancy Kress on Asymmetry
