Review from the Romantic Times Book Club, April 2003,

Kathy Boswell

 4 stars

This intriguing book, told in first person, follows an unnamed Earthling who is distressed that the planet, as she knows it, is dying. Wanting to go somewhere else so she won't be poisoned as well, she teleports to a sentient forest called Zollocco to find a cure.

 “Even though the Zollocco forest hasn't allowed humans to become inhabitants, the plants and animals that live there feel kindred to this woman. They accept her but feel she must learn some lessons in order to fully become one with Zollocco. She's sent all over on a magical adventure to prepare her for what her final destiny and outcome will be.     

“Needless to say, this whole concept of plants, animals and beasts who actually converse with humans totally intrigued me. The book is so riveting, I almost felt as if I were actually living these adventures myself. For fans of alternate universes, this story comes highly recommended.”
