Publisher's Summary

Child of prophecy? Harbinger of Doom?
Zaltys is a girl like any other to grow up ranging the jungles of the Southern Lluirwood. She’s a crack shot with a bow and no stranger to the dangers that lurk beneath the deep forest canopy.
On expedition with her family to harvest the forbidden terazul flower, a powerful drug that has gathered many a dreamer into its narcotic embrace, Zaltys is about to unearth a truth long buried by the feculent loam of deception. As the veil is lifted on the world Zaltys thought she knew, a pathway to the Underdark promises the answers her family never gave. Venturing forth in search of truth, Zaltys finds betrayal to be a much easier quarry. But it will take more than a lode of lies to quell the venom in her veins.

Good Stroy

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

The story is good, but the performance, well... Since it is about a girl, I would have enjoyed the performance better if a woman read this story. I felt the reader rushed through the book so I found it hard to relax and listen. If I was listening to this while I was running instead of to relax after work maybe I would have liked the performance better..

Lacking

The book had great potential. It has unique characters, a great structure for the family it's centered around, and a little comic relief. But as a whole this book seemed more like an introduction to a bigger story. But as I understand it, it's a stand alone novel.
