When the last of the Brazilian rainforest begins to die, Tawny Blackwood seeks the help of sexy conservationist Kaniwa Tijani to carry out a plan that just may save the world. She thinks she’s got it all figured out, but nothing is ever quite as it seems in the wild places, and Forrest—the Green Man, her phantom lover and constant companion—knows a lot more than he’s letting on. Their lives will never be the same once these three journey…Into the Green.
This is a fantastic book that is part erotic romance, part fantasy, part myth, and part ecology lesson.
Ms. Bo clearly did a tremendous amount of research to write this titillating tale about a girl determined to save the Earth no matter what the cost. Tawny has loved Kaniwa since she was in college but she has always been unable to marry him because she loves another being too—an entity she calls Forest who lives in her brain. Forest has chosen her because of her connection and love of the earth.
But the earth is dying. Kani and Tawny go into the Brazilian Rainforest to see if they can save it and the most amazing things start to happen. This is where Ms. Bo really starts to shine as she seamlessly winds together fantasy with science and a touch of good old fashioned myth.
I loved this book. I think you will read it as I did: in one sitting.
