When I read these, I think I read this book first. I feel it's the best of the series.

The Erdlings live below the ground beneath The Root. When the council decides that Teera's pet lapan is to be used for food (living conditions below the root are difficult and food is scarce) Teera runs away and enters the world above the Root.

Astonished by the abundance of greenery and food in this new world, Teera wanders until she is discovered by Raamo and Neric, Ol-zaan priests from the Green-Sky, a commun

As a combined entity, I really enjoy this series--but structurally, this book is a mess in a way that goes beyond Middle Book Syndrome. The first half retells portions of book one from a different perspective, while the second half is all lead-up for book three. I wonder if there was external pressure to make this series into a trilogy, because it would I think have been much more natural as a duology--or as a single-volume work.

The second installment of the Green Sky trilogy does not disappoint. The first half of this book is the second half of the first book told from Teera's point of view. It starts off with her life below the root with the Erdlings and how she ran away with her pet lapan. Most important is her point of view of her relationship and developing friendship with Raamo's sister Pomma.

The second half of the book starts with the abduction of Pomma and Teera. Raamo and his friends are then faced with a diffi

This is the sequel to Below the Root, although it does not begin where that left off. Instead, Teera's story is told from her perspective and that of the other Erdlings. The endpoint of the former book comes about halfway through this one, when the thread of narrative is picked back up from the perspectives of other characters. The players are gearing up to reveal the secret of the Erdlings and attempt to integrate them into Kinda society, but there are still those, such as D'ol Regle who will s ...more

I liked this a little less than Below the Root... it went over a lot of the same plot from a different perspective, which was fine, but it was pretty redundant after a while when I just want to see how it turns out! It did go over some of the philosophy and thinking of the green-sky people, which made me think... could human kind ever evolve past violence? Is Love and Compassion ever truly stronger than the desire for power? Not just for short times, and not just in a few people, but in an entir ...more

For some reason Synder decided to write the same book twice: this one from the perspective of Terra, who lives below the Root, and its sister book Below The Root from the perspective of Raamo, who above the Root in the trees. Until the Celebration finishes off the trilogy.

These stories take place on a alien world where most of the people are peaceful and loving, and live their lives in the towering and massive trees. Due to the low gravity, they all glide from branch to branch using suits with b

I picked this book up for $1 in the dealers' room at Context in Columbus, OH, last month. Picked it up because I've never heard of this author. The book (#2 of a trology) was published by Tor in 1976. I'm not a big fantasy fan, but was curious about the author. It's a well done, simple fantasy about people(?) -- not sure if they're humans or fairies or what -- whose tribe got splintered, part of it repressed and forced to live under the roots of the World Tree. The main character is a little gir ...more

Snyder's Below the Root trilogy is a nice introduction to fantasy and science fiction. It gets young readers ready for such heavy and layered series as the Lord of the Rings or Narnia.
