Summary
Courtier, explorer, thief: Leaper is a man of many skills, but none of his talents satisfy the yearning in his heart for the Queen of Airakland, the ruler of a thunder-clashed kingdom. Their affair is cut too short, however, when she is murdered. The suspects behind her death include the most powerful in the realm: a political rival, a jealous king, or, perhaps, the god of thunder who oversees them all. Distraught, Leaper vows revenge, but his mission will lead him away from his forest home, across the vast floodplains, and to the edges of time and myth

Review
Dyer’s triumphant conclusion to the Titan’s Forest trilogy (after Echoes of Understorey) brings murder, prophesy, and redemption to her vibrant world of magic, colossal trees, and disparate human settlements. Leaper is a servant to Airak, the merciless god of lightning, in the Canopy community of the titan trees. Leaper is also having an affair with Queen Ilik, but before he can ask her to elope with him, she is murdered, with only the bloody remnants of her lustrous hair left behind. Setting out to find her killer, Leaper travels down the mighty trees to the Floor and out into the mysterious plains and mountains. He encounters the deceptive Floorians, the devious Crocodile-Riders, and the last of the Winged, a demon of destruction. Along the way, Leaper learns harsh truths about the origin of the gigantic lizardlike Old Gods and the Titan’s Forest, and pledges to free the people of Canopy from the tyranny of the new gods. Loyal readers will rejoice at the reunion of characters from the other books and delight in Dyer’s rich mythology, and anyone can appreciate the sympathetic, vivid characters as they navigate their elaborate world of mercurial gods, magical abilities, and determination to be free.
