The Children of Chaos (The Cruel Gods #2) by Trudie Skies - Book Review 22, Nov

The Children of Chaos is a worthy sequel to the brilliant The Thirteenth Hour, filled with fantastical world-building, cruel, ruthless gods and fabulously layered characters and relationships - this is a wonderfully rich and in places tragic story. The characters are tortured by their gods and the gods are scared of the mortals of Chaos and threatened by the possibility of the god of Chaos, Corentine being set free from the Clocktower in which she was imprisoned many years ago by Dor the godĀ of the Diviner. Quen and Kayl must work together against the clock to bring together the gods of the other domains and persuade them to cooperate in such a way that Corentine could be set free without any repercussions for the other domains.
