FANTASY REVIEW: Chaos Born 2: The Scorched Earth - Drew Karpyshyn

Release Date: 02/07/15
Publisher:  Del Rey


Beset on all sides by mortal and supernatural enemies, The Children of Fire – four mortals touched by the power of Chaos – are in search of the Talismans that can put a stop to an ancient enemy of the Gods.

But in doing so, they unleash a flood of Chaos magic on the land – leaving death, destruction and a vengeful queen in their wake...


The second title in Drew’s Chaos Born series and whilst it’s the second that make a lot of readers sit up and pay attention, its often the book in any series that tends to stall as a lot of info has already been divulged in the previous and the reader is ready for solid action leading up to the culmination in the third part.

What occurs within is solid character building allowing the reader the opportunity to see how the characters develop alongside bringing new characters to the fore to allow for a fuller world view. Back this up with good action sequences and of course a plot line that keeps revealing mysterious hints all round make this a series to savour.
