The Never Tilting World is a story about family, revenge, and power. Love, friendship, and destiny, The Never Tilting World will sweep you away.
Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon. But seventeen years ago, one sister’s betrayal defied an ancient prophecy and split their world in two. The planet ceased to spin, and a Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in perpetual night, the other scorched by an unrelenting sun.
While one sister rules Aranth—a frozen city surrounded by a storm-wracked sea —her twin inhabits the sand-locked Golden City. Each goddess has raised a daughter, and each keeps her own secrets about her sister’s betrayal.
But when shadowy forces begin to call their daughters, Odessa and Haidee, back to the site of the Breaking, the two young goddesses —along with a powerful healer from Aranth, and a mouthy desert scavenger —set out on separate journeys across treacherous wastelands, desperate to heal their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.
(Disclaimer: I received this book from Edelweiss. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)
The Never Tilting World is epic. Told from four perspectives, Chupeco weaves a story full of magic, the manipulation of truth, and power that can corrupt. It is a story that builds up to a conclusion that will make your mouth drop. While there are high stakes throughout the book, the future of the world and trying to make it whole again, the perspectives allow space of introspection, questioning, and doubts.
Tianlan – a soldier suffering from PTSD and the memories of those who have fallen. Haidee – a young goddess determined to uncover the future no matter the cost. Odessa – a girl suffering from an un-malady and searching for answers and power. And Arjun – a boy bent on revenge who falls into a trap of destiny. These four characters will charm you whether it be their strengths, recklessness, mistakes, or doubts. There’s also a f/f romance which will make your heart ache.
From the beginning, we are asked – what is the truth? How did the world become this way? An ocean of sand, tidal waves that threaten walls, and mysterious creatures that emerge from shadows. The Never Tilting World is a quest to save our world, while also discovering the answers we seek and our history. And we are asked what our choices mean in the face of destiny.
As we continue reading, we are exposed to the depths of power. What those will sacrifice to gain power, to maintain power, how it will twist their morals. All the gives, takes. The Never Tilting World is a stunning series opener, asking us questions about truth, power, sacrifice, and love.
