Unity (Book Three, The Todor Trilogy)
By Jenna Newell Hiott
Genre: Fantasy, Visionary & Metaphysical Fiction
This dramatic final chapter of the Todor Trilogy picks up right where Disintegration left off, with Numa, Gemynd, and Soman standing high above a realm on the verge of splintering. The Peace Council has failed, Golath is dead, and the people in Tolnick would already be fighting without Gemynd’s mind control. Despite their differences, the trio must find a way to use their magical powers together if there is any hope of moving forward.
Again and again, the childhood bonds of the three are tested. As the new leader of the Iturtians, Gemynd must face his past. Soman struggles with watching the woman he loves devote herself to marriage with his old friend. Numa meets an unexpected family member who will change everything she’s known. Peace among the three of them—and among the land’s warring races—must be established if Numa’s vision of the future is to come true. But she doesn’t yet understand the truth of her biggest obstacle, which could defeat her in the end.
In Unity, the gritty culmination of a compelling saga, Hiott has delivered an enchanting metaphysical masterpiece. Defining good and bad proves tricky, and even the Deis couldn’t have predicted what’s coming next.
Author, healer, all-around kook, Jenna Newell Hiott boasts of having a limitless imagination, unless it’s naptime. While many of us had an imaginary friend as children, Jenna had an entire imaginary family—complete with a second set of parents andthree siblings—all of whom lived in a make-believe world of Jenna’s own creation. One could say she’s been writing fantasy fiction since she was old enough to use words. And she never outgrew it. Out of this hyperactive imagination, and a life steeped in metaphysics, Jenna created the land of Todor: a world of magic, intrigue, and power plays.
Numa, Gemynd, and Soman are barely keeping the peace. Everything is balanced on war and looks like war is going to be the ultimate course. Numa is going to learn something that is going to turn her whole world upside down. With all that they have gone through before, their bonds will be further tested. Will they finally achieve peace in the land of Todor?
I love how Unity wraps everything up. I have come to care about Numa, Gemynd, and Soman so much that I continually cheer for them and hope everything works out. They are still tested and have to learn to unite their powers. But, just like fine steel, without that fire you cannot truly know the strength of their bonds.
The best thing about this series is how Todor is one land clearly divided yet there is the chance to lead to peace and unity through the joining of people. It’s a great message for the story and for the world today.
If you are looking for a great, epic fantasy story look no further. This is an amazing series from a wonderful author. I cannot wait to see what Jenna comes up with next.
I received Unity from Sage’s Blog Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
