Unanimity (Spiral Worlds Book 1) is a work of fiction in the science fiction and adventure subgenres and is the opening novel in the Spiral Worlds series. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience and was penned by Alexandra Almeida. In this thrilling tale which sparks off a series set over six fateful days that change the course of all known universes, we meet Shadow, a god among men who rose from the life of a screenwriter to become a revered figure, thanks to his involvement with an AI reality that helps humanity face its darker thoughts. But Shadow’s darkness haunts him endlessly, from his struggles with long-lost love to the young and merciless new goddess who would seek to take his place.
I adored this work by Alexandra Almeida from cover to cover for its modern take on fantasy and the subversion of so many typical themes and ideas that have become tired and overdone in the genre. I love the fluidity of the characters and that nobody was set in a predestined mold. Everyone can change, quickly or slowly, and for good or evil, and it was fascinating to watch Shadow’s emotional inner journey and the knock-on effect that it has on his life in the immediate present. The queer storytelling elements are included beautifully and never made into a gimmick or overdone for the sake of themselves, and as such, they flow naturally with the fantasy and emotional elements of the narrative. I would not hesitate to recommend Unanimity as a sensational opening novel to a very promising series.
