Title: The Never Tilting World (The Never Tilting World #1)
Author: Rin Chupeco
Release Date: October 15th 2019
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Frozen meets Mad Max in this epic teen fantasy duology bursting with star-crossed romance, immortal heroines, and elemental magic, perfect for fans of Furyborn.
Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon. But seventeen years ago, one sister’s betrayal defied an ancient prophecy and split their world in two. The planet ceased to spin, and a Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in perpetual night, the other scorched by an unrelenting sun.
While one sister rules Aranth—a frozen city surrounded by a storm-wracked sea —her twin inhabits the sand-locked Golden City. Each goddess has raised a daughter, and each keeps her own secrets about her sister’s betrayal.
But when shadowy forces begin to call their daughters, Odessa and Haidee, back to the site of the Breaking, the two young goddesses —along with a powerful healer from Aranth, and a mouthy desert scavenger —set out on separate journeys across treacherous wastelands, desperate to heal their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.

Despite an unsettling resemblance to Japanese revenants, Rin always maintains her sense of hummus. Born and raised in Manila, Philippines, she keeps four pets: a dog, two birds, and a husband. Dances like the neighbors are watching.
She is represented by Rebecca Podos of the Helen Rees Agency. She is also fond of speaking in the third person, and may as well finish this short bio in this manner. While she does not always get to check her Goodreads page, she does answer questions posed to her here as promptly as she is able to.

Rin Chupeco creates a dangerous and beautiful world that will captivate you from the first word until the last page. She creates a story that is unique and magnetic and unlike any fantasy world. It’s truly a great fantasy book with many tropes and elements.
If you’re wondering what this book is about, the cover gives you a great idea. It demonstrates the construction of the world – there’s a kingdom masked in eternal night and a kingdom under eternal sunlight. The cover is one of my favorite things because it’s unique and captures the beauty of this world and the differences. The world masked in night is filled with dangerous monsters, while the world under sunlight is stuck with desert-like hills and unbearable heat. And then the world starts dying and it’s up to two girls to save the world from total destruction.
“A demoness is what men call a goddess they cannot control.”
The Never-Tilting World follows four people, two from each kingdom. What I liked about this is how each perspective was unique and how Chupeco brought everything together. I’m usually not a fan of books that have more than two point of views, but Chupeco did an amazing job. I have a soft spot for all these characters; they are all so well-developed with relatable backstories. The characters are witty and sarcastic and I loved it. Plus, it was great to see so much diversity represented: there’s a f/f romance (which will make you swoon!), mental health, disabled character, and much more.
Chupeco does an absolutely beautiful job bringing this world and story to life. Her writing is magnetizing and filled with such emotion. Some of the scenes the characters go through are so well described that I could easily place a picture in my head. And the characters themselves are truly noteworthy – they are all so different, yet share a strong and unbreakable bond. I was, overall, very surprised and excited by this book.
I’m looking forward to read the sequel, especially after how this book wraps up. The Never-Tilting World is out now, and it’s a perfect book for readers who love fantasy with enemies-to-lovers and gods and goddesses.
