The story follows Tylira, a spoiled, sheltered princess as she searches for freedom from within the confines of cultural norms. For her, the solution is to find the Teeth of the Gods, a prized artifact whose recovery will win the favor of the ruler. As a main character, she is impulsive, bratty, and selfish; but as with most YA stories, it leaves her a lot of room to grow in both character and magic.
And what a unique magic system the author has created! Part of Tylira’s growth stems from her trying and failing to connect to the Common, the source of magic.
This does bring on a downside to the story as a whole: tapping into the Common requires meditation-- the user’s consciousness enters a world akin to the spirit world of Spirited Away or The Last Airbender—where Tylira meets ancestral guides. The slipping in and out of this state is disorienting at first, and sometimes I was never sure if I was in the material world or the spirit world.
In addition, the narrative thoughts slipped into present tense, which sometimes hitched my enjoyment of the story at first, but which I grew used to midway through.
Despite these issues, I found Teeth of the Gods to be an entertaining, engaging story, filled with some of the most creative world building I’ve seen in a while. I will definitely be reading the sequel to see where Tylira’s adventures take her.
I have to admit that at first, whilst I was interested, I found the book a little slow going and expected it to be like many other epic fantasy novels I have read over the years...enjoyable enough. Boy, was I wrong! On so many levels! Just...argh...what a story!
At the beginning, Sarah K Wilson sets the scene up and gives alot of background information. Information that is very important to the story line. Because of this, I got to know Tylira inside and out. She started her journey of self discovery as a naive, sometimes selfish and petulant child, and blossomed into a caring, beautiful soul. Her conversations with her ancestors could be both infuriating and hilarious. In being tethered to her enemy, she learns humility and compassion. Her temper was ruthless but her courage and ultimate loyalty weren't to be rivalled. In her journey for freedom she finds the keys to her creation, but she also discovers herself and all that she is truly capable of.
Without giving anything away, this bool was an epic ride of fantasy and science fiction with a twist that I didn't see coming. I am so eager to see what the future holds for Tazminera Tylira Nyota....and humanity.
The ending was written in such a way that made the sadistic sister the heroine and our poor heroine the villain.
No interest in continuing to read the story.
