Triumph of Chaos
Genre: YA Paranormal Fantasy
Release Date: March 8, 2016
Goodreads Rating: 3.50
My Rating: 5.0
After the disaster in Europe, Darlena’s starting to get desperate. She knows the only way to defeat Hecate and the other crazy Red Gods is by banding together with other Witches, but is it any wonder she has a hard time trusting them?
With Izzy’s support, Darlena begins making fragile strides toward repairing the mess she made, but she just can’t catch a break. As chaos runs rampant around her, Darlena begins to think that things would be better if she’d never become a Red Witch in the first place. But there’s no way to change the past…is there?
The final book in the Red Magic series brings Darlena face to face with impossible odds, and a terrifying choice.
My Take on the Book:
Wow. Just wow.
I loved this book more than I can say. when I first heard about Daughter of Chaos a while back, I really didn’t have the time to sign up for the review tour but marked it as a TBR on Goodreads but we all know how that goes, so it kinda just sat there waiting for me to remember....
When I got this new email and saw that my calendar for march was basically barren I was super excited to get the opportunity to not only read this book but its 2 predecessors including Daughters of Chaos. Everything just kind of lined up, and it was perfect timing.
The book, the plot, the characters, they were all great on their own but together they made for an amazing book. The author did a great job creating this world and these characters that it feels bittersweet knowing that it's over. There were great highs and some of the most heart wrenching lows. It was a myriad of emotions and I feel like that somehow made everything all the more endearing. And while I know all things must end and not all things are perfectly wrapped in a bow this story doesn’t feel like it was properly put to bed.
I can’t say I've read anything like this before but I can say that it was a completely enjoyable experience. I can only hope that this isn’t the complete end for these characters, that there might be more to Darlena, Izzy and Justin's story. There real are so many unanswered questions and the ending really was open ended, and while I kinda sorta maybe liked that aspect it also left me with a hollow feeling akin to that feeling you get when you watch a movie with an anticlimactic ending.
I highly recommend this series leaving you with this warning: This book, its plot and its characters are highly addictive so be sure to find the time to pull yourself away to grab a meal or 2!
