John C. Wright

Synopsis of Titans of Chaos

Titans of Chaos completes John Wrights The Chronicles of Chaos. Launched in Orphans of Chaos, a Nebula Award Nominee for Best Novel in 2006, and a Locus Years Best Novel pick for 2005, and continued in Fugitives of Chaos, the trilogy is about five orphans raised in a strict British boarding school who discovered that they are not human. The five have made incredible discoveries about themselves. Amelia is apparently a fourth-dimensional being; Victor is a synthetic man who can control the molecular arrangement of matter; Vanity can find secret passageways through solid walls; Colin is a psychic; Quentin is a warlock. Each power comes from a different paradigm or view of the universe. They have learned to control their strange abilities and have escaped into our world; now their true battle for survival begins. The Chronicles of Chaos is situated in the literary territory of J. K. Rowlings Harry Potter Books and Neil Gaimans American Gods, with some of the flash and dazzle of superhero comics.

Reviews of Titans of Chaos


A little more Thorne Smith and a bit less Steve Ditko would have gone a long way. -- Paul Di Filippo, Scifi.com

...a tremendous feat of writing... -- Drew Bittner, SFRevu

John C. Wright proves he has the right stuff as he provides a fabulous finale to a great trilogy that the Potter crowd will relish. -- Harriet Klausner's Review Archive

It always seems as though there must be some other power, or a different aspect of known powers, which will solve every problem, and that tends to drain some of the suspense out of the story. -- Don D'Ammassa, Critical Mass

Recommended in a big, big way. -- Mirtika, Dragons, Knights, & Angels
