The Hidden Way by Harrison M. Love is a young adult fantasy novel inspired by Amazonian folklore and mythology. Told through a non-linear timeline narrative to respect the original method of storytelling amongst ancient Amazonian tribes, the book follows one of the last remnants of the ten tribes that fled the fall of an old Amazonian empire. With a few remaining families, the tribe moves from its original habitat in Pilar to Rio de Almas. Rikoj, the village Shaman, desperately wants to instill his beliefs of Pachamama in his young granddaughter, Khay, who he prepares to take over his mantle. But the unexpected arrival of Kalkus -- the bird that devours the world -- forces Khay and Rikoj to travel through the hidden way beyond which lies the mysterious city where Khay may yet find a future.
Author Harrison M. Love takes readers on a fantastical odyssey through a surreal and magical world that leaves you with a sense of wonder and awe. Akin to Alice in Wonderland, The Hidden Way is a young girl's coming-of-age adventure tale set amidst the vibrant jungles of the Amazon full of lurking dangers and unbelievable wonders. In terms of the narrative, Love draws heavily from the storytelling style of native Amazonian tribes who pass on their knowledge and wisdom to the next generation through campfire stories doused in myth and legend. Khay's evolving relationship with her grandfather enables her growth as a character as she learns to perceive his wisdom and flaws. Overall, a fascinating glimpse into the rich culture and heritage of the Amazon tribes that I will gladly recommend to fantasy lovers.
