The sequel to The Root, a compelling urban fantasy series set between modern-day San Francisco and an alternate dimension filled with gods and worlds of dark magic.

In Corpiliu, an alternate dimension to our own, a darkness grows, devouring whole cities as it spreads. Robbed of her greatest power, separated from her siblings and thrown among people she does not trust, Lil, a ’dant from the city of Zebub, must find a way to turn everything around, to trust in a power she knows nothing about.

Erik travels from San Francisco to Zebub, haunted by the ghost of his ex, still coming to terms with his true identity as a descendant of gods, and unsure how to fight the darkness that seems to have no weakness. As he pushes back against traditions meant to keep the true history of Corpiliu secret, he gains many enemies and few allies, and strange visions begin to make him question his own mind and place in the world.

Between Earth and Corpiliu, a war is developing on two fronts, one that might well mean the end of both dimensions. In The Tree, the dynamic follow-up to the exciting fantasy debut The Root, long-held secrets will be revealed, and long-trusted loyalties will be put to the test.

Praise for The Root

“Tilahun creates a fantasy world you'll want to get lost in, and fills it with fascinating, diverse characters. This is a whole new exciting kind of portal fantasy.”
—Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the Sky

“An intense, emotional ride that combines libraries, monsters, fallen angels, magical powers, and secret societies fighting an ancient war. This is catnip for my reading soul.”
—Kate Elliott, author of Cold Magic and Black Wolves

The Root is a grandiose feat of imagination and cross-dimensional storytelling . . . a story that’s firmly rooted in human drama, exploring themes such as the nature of race, celebrity, the media and society’s perceptions of sexual orientation, gender and class division . . . Tilahun has laid the foundations for a very promising trilogy.”
