(From the publisher):
: the deepwood--a magical world with two suns and a sepia sky. It is a home to demons, a thousand gods, and numerous other magical entities--but it is not just an environment. Like the body of a great beast, Alisanos ripples with movements both large and small. For the deepwood is sentient
--alive in a far different way than a normal forest.
Even the magical denizens of this amazing land, accustomed as they are to the ever-shifting landscape of their home, are not completely safe. For no one, no thing, born in Alisanos is immortal save for the deepwood itself. For the creatures of the deepwood, the battle to survive amid the deadly changes of whimsical Alisanos begins again with every dawn.
But Alisanos poses a far greater threat to humans than to any of its natives. For the deepwood coexists with human lands, and its location is not fixed. Subject to fluctuations both large and small, Alisanos can suddenly shift miles in any direction, unexpectedly encompassing previously safe land. Even when not moving great distances, its borders are unstable. Humans taken by the deepwood are either never seen again, or are permanently transformed into hideous creatures--neither true demon, nor true human.
