Review - ⭐⭐
I received this book for free in exchange for a review from Hidden Gems.

The whole concept of the book was not to my taste. The land was divided into Humans, Whites, Blues, Greens, Woodsmen, and people called Lizards. The whole point of hte book is the main character has to travel to a far away secret land to find magic mushrooms to help restore the vitality to his land. As the different regions are titled. Everything in the White land is white. Hair, clothes, plants, everything. The same was true for the other lands.

I didn't finish this book.
