Formats: Hardcover, Paperback, eBook, audiobook
A GOD OF WAR SEEKING RESTORATION.
AN UNWILLING SACRIFICIAL BRIDE.
BETRAYAL THAT COULD DESTROY THEM BOTH.
“Every 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?
Review: I love mythology. Fragile Chaos has plenty of that with war and romance.
Theo is a war god trying to prove something to his siblings. Because he’s a war god he can’t get involved but that’s tough when things seem to be spiraling out of control. He struggled to prove himself to his siblings and in the process keeps his emotions bottled up.
Enter Cassia, the heroine of the book who is strong and independant. She was a potential sacrifice for the God of War but now is a great ally. The slow smoldering romance that Theo and Cassia can’t deny greatly pushes each page with anticipation.
The world building was fantastic. Duell does a wonderful job at describing the setting and the gods with their powers. Their relationships with each other could be toxic.
The ending was perfect. I felt things were neatly wrapped up after all the twists and turns. The words flowed keeping the pace moving.
Should you read it? Yes! This was a fun book I couldn’t put down. And the cover is gorgeous!
