Fragile Chaos

A GOD OF WAR SEEKING RESTORATION. AN UNWILLING SACRIFICIAL BRIDE. BETRAYAL THAT COULD DESTROY THEM BOTH. “[E]very fiber of my being is woven from the rage of mortals.” Theodric, the young God of War, has a talent for inciting conflict and bloodshed. After being stripped of his powers by his older brother, King of Gods, he sets out to instigate a mortal war to prove himself worthy of being restored to power. “I loved Kisk once; it was my home… But that was before. This is now.” Sixteen-year-old Cassia, like many in the modern era, believes gods and goddesses to be just a myth. Enemy to her country and an orphan of the war, she has no time for fairy tales. That’s until religious zealots from Theo’s sect offer her up as a sacrifice. Can Cassia and Theo end the mortal war and return balance to the earth and heavens? Or, will their game of fate lead down a path of destruction, betrayal, and romance neither of them saw coming?

Intriguing Writing Style

When Cassia is unwillingly sacrificed to the War God, she's shocked when it's someone she's already met. Theo doesn't want a sacrificial bride because he doesn't want to be forced to choose sides in this war. As the War God, he needs to remain neutral. But when he catches a glimpse of Cassia's face, he can't deliver the final blow to send her to the Netherworld.

There's something between the two that keeps pulling Cassia and Theo together no matter how much friction there is. Not to mention Cassia is in over her head when she realizes just how much deception there is between the gods and goddesses, but she sees something different in Theo. It's small and well-hidden, but still there.

I loved the push and pull between the two characters. It built up anticipation and tension as I was eager to discover how everything was going to unfold. I loved Theo and Leander's characters. Goran was another favorite and Amber Duell does an excellent job with developing her variety of characters. It's hard to dislike any of them.


Final Verdict: This was a story that was perfectly colored with emotion that kept me on the edge of my seat. I would recommend it to fans of mythology, romance, mystery, and action. This was one of my favorite reads of the year.
