Hello, what you should know about THE NEVER TILTING WORLD:
1. Four POVs:
+ Haidee, goddess-mechanic with free-spirited Moana vibes
+ Odessa, bookish chaotic lesbian goddess energy
+ Arjun, sarcastic fire-wielding amputee and secret cinnaman
+ Lan, healer/ranger and fierce bodyguard in love with her charge
2. Twin goddesses scrambling to fix a world slowly dying of horrific man-made (goddess-made?) and destructive climate change. Yes, climate change ...more
I remember the world back when it was soft and good, where I could watch the sun set before stars graced the sky with their shine. Do you know what I would give to see a sunset again, lad?
Marketing is so weird. Frozen? Hardly. Mad Max, sure, if Mad Max invented cobbled-together dune buggies. Instead it didn't really fit into anything I'd ever read before.
At least what I got from it was a high-octane road trip adventure, in a uniquely magical world, with two pairs of POVs belonging to some fant ...more
My new series, THE NEVER TILTING WORLD, has 4 POVs:
+ chaotic Slytherin lesbian deity
+ PTSD-suffering Asian bi Gryffindor warrioress
+ Grouchy disabled Hufflepuff Asian gunner
+ Ravenclaw nerd mechanic who is also a goddess
Rin Chupeco. Queen of My Heart, Goddess of Brilliant Fantasy World-Buildings, and as of The Never Tilting World, Patron Saint of Sexual Tension and Unparalleled Chemistry.
I just can't even. None of us are ready.
Review to follow.
First of all, I want to thank HarperTeen for sending me a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
I had no doubt that I was going to enjoy The Never Tilting World. This is one of those books that I took one look at the cover, the title, and decided that there was no way I wouldn’t like it. And I wasn’t disappointed. The Never Tilting World is an entertaining read that features four very unique protagonists in a world whose mythology is very cleverly imagined. Th ...more
This was one of my most anticipated reads of the latter half of 2019, and it does mostly fulfill my hopes. It’s a really unusual fantasy based off climate change in a world split in half into endless desert day under a blitzing sun and endless frozen night under a cold moon.
I was attached to all 4 narrators - a strong positive. One girl had an antiheroine arc - another strong positive. Also a f/f relationship - a third strong positive. An amazing, charming male love interest with a missing limb ...more
y'all, we're gonna get a story about magic, sisterly feuds, two adjacent worlds with their own specific planetary functions, climate change, and sand dolphins. how cool is that?!?!!
Frozen meets Mad Max in this... Yes. I have watched like... half of Mad Max: Fury Road and I can definitely see where the comparisons are drawn. The protagonists, in two separate pairings, travel towards a "Great Abyss" in a highly turbulent climate ...more
The two cities in this book are completely different. Each is ruled by a twin sister, who has their own daughter. One city ...more
My gosh, there are so many good books coming out I can't keep up. A 400 page fantasy with two female queens, yas please!! Also, this cover is LIT.
I heard from Melanie that there is an arc on Edelweiss. I NEED TO GET IT! I mean, Mad Max meets Frozen? lmao! I am so here for it!!

Chupeco's new post-apocalyptic fantasy brings to us a world stops spinning due to a magical catastrophe, and the two parts of the world are separated by a chasm that divide ...more
Fast-paced and addicted, with some great character work, and a fascinating premise. Told from multiple different perspectives, it’s easy to relate to (& fall in love with) each of our four main characters.
This book kept me guessing, and I’m really excited for more world-building, & history, as the series continues.
Although the pacing could have used a bit of work (at times, characters took several chapters to get some character growth, while at other points, in one chapter, a c ...more
I could not get into either world enough to care about this story. And none of the characters was really doing anything for me either. It didn't help that the chapters were a little on the long side for my liking and they felt long. This wasn't a story I could just pick up and get lost in. But I did enjoy the different kinds of magic in the universe and how each world adapted their magic to their needs. But I think this story just wasn't for me, but I do think I'll give another Rin Chu ...more
This is a story about rigid tradition, sisterly feuds, climate change, and monsters.
The Never Tilting World is unlike anything I have ever read before. It combines so many elements that are less common in teen fiction, including: LGBTQ+, amputees, mental health, global warming and terminal illness.
Unfortunately, I found that the 4 POV’s took a while to catch my interest. Also, t ...more
