A Chronicle of Chaos

3 Stars/5

Thanks to D M Cain for giving me this book to review.

War has raged on the human realm for centuries between the Children of Light and the Brotherhood of Shadow, but now 5 demons have been summoned to destroy the Children of Light once and for all. Chaos is an up and coming solider in the Children of Light whose fighting skills are as big as his arrogance. Anathema is the youngest of the five demons summoned and is determined to prove he belongs on the human realm as such as the others. When coincidence causes Chaos and Anathema to meet, not knowing who the other is, they form an unusual friendship but as they grow closer they must decide which is more important, their duty or growing desire for each other.

A Chronicle of Chaos is an enjoyable YA novel which was well written, fast paced and full of action. I was a little wary starting this book as it sounded very dark but I liked it and had an interesting concept revolving around good and evil.

The one problem I had with this book was that the two main characters weren’t very likeable. Chaos is an immature and petulant person, but is brave and desperate for approval as he wants to live up to his destiny. Anathema is an evil character who is arrogant and wants to prove himself but is also conflicted, mostly about Chaos.

An original fantasy novel and I look forward to reading the next book The Shield of Soren. I would recommend A Chronicle of Chaos to fans of The Belgariad by David Eddings. 


  1. Thank you for taking the time to review my book! (Plus, I am pretty chuffed at being compared to The Belgariad - high praise indeed!)
