Tymon’s Flight is Mary Victoria’s first book and is part one of a three part fantasy series titled Chronicles of the Tree – and what an intriguing world this is set in. All known people live in a single, huge many hundreds of kilometres wide tree. Above the canopy is heaven, below is hell, in the middle the world of the canopy where people live. Tymon is one of those people and he doesn’t like his world because he’s bored and restless; and so the story begins…

This is a story about Tymon, his life experiences as he moves from adolescence to adulthood, his friends and enemies and the tree and the world it supports – and parts of the tree are dying. Do not expect the familiar and the routine.

Ms Victoria has created a fascinating world and a strong cast of characters who at turns surprise, fascinate and appal. I regret to note that book two in the series is due for publication next year and not next week, so it will be a long wait for the next round in Tymon’s journey through the tree and towards maturity.
