A hero's journey! This year I taught 6th grade reading, and part of what I taught was mythology and I had my student's write a hero's journey, like what the hero's in mythology go through. Well, imagine my joy when I started reading the final installment in this series and realized that is what it was :)

This whole series has been full of ancient Babylonian mythology, mixed with shape sifters, and I've enjoyed it all. But this book blew me away. Where I felt the others were a bit slow at times, t

Disclosure: I received a review copy from the author in exchange for a honest review.

Heart of Chaos is the third and final installment in Brady’s Deadglass series following couple, Lucia Crane and Emory Corbette. It’s been a few months since the unraveling, where Demigod Kingu wreck havoc on Seattle and its citizen. The Kivatis (totem animal shifters) and Drekars (dragon shifters) are trying to pick up the pieces but the worst is yet to come as the Tablet of Destiny and Heart of Tiam

4.5 stars - When the goddess of Chaos awakes, Raven- shifting Kvati leader Corbette and his intended Crane-shifting Lucia must journey to the Land of the Dead to obtain the only thing that has the power to stop the goddess. But if they hope to succeed, both must move beyond their deeply held beliefs... and meanwhile, back in the land of the living, all three races - Kvati, Dreker, and human - must join together or there will be no one left to save.

Hearts of Chaos. Kira Brady
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I was a bit cautious over requesting this as its the final book in a trilogy, but it sounded so good I hoped that reading samples and reviews of earlier books would be enough. It was, I really enjoyed this story, and would love to read the earlier books at some point. Its a classic sort of novel that I love to read all of the series back to back , to really get engrossed in another world and lost in the story.

The Deadglass series is so different from all the other paranormal romance series out there is the vast sea of books it is incredibly easy to get sucked into them. If you’re a reader that has grown bored with paranormal romance I can highly recommend this series to break up the monotony. Brady has created a world filled with ancient deity’s, old legends, prophecies and mythologies, filled with dragons and other numerous other powerful shifters.

Lucia and Emory are deeply involved in one of those

I thought this was the final book in the Deadglass series, but after that epilogue, I'm not so sure..

Unlike the other two books, this one took a bit to get into for me. It really dragged in the beginning and I had to actually put it down a time or two and step away, but once it finally picked up with Lucia and Emory going into the Land of the Dead I was fully on board. We met these characters in the first book and again in the second, so when this one came out you already felt like you had been

I listened to the audio version of a of the books in this series. I enjoyed them. The Narrator was good and they are just fun easy listening type books. Fantasy with dragons and people who changed into birds. A lot of Greek type Gods.

The Unraveling, seven months ago, demolished the Gates between the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead. It allowed the Babylonian demigod, Kingu, into the Living World, making the city of Seattle a ruin. Since then Kingu has gathered armies of undead and has been seeking Tiamat’s Heart, the Babylonian Goddess of Chaos, in order to extract those powers. But a brave young woman, Lucia led a band of Kivati warriors under the leadership of Lord Kai, and defeated Kingu. In doing so, however, ...more

We have reached the end. This is the final book in the Deadglass Trilogy. I will say this one is my favorite.

Lady Lucia has played a major role in the series and her part is really just beginning. In this story we get to watch her grow even more. She is a lovely woman and I was cheering her along her journey from the first page.

Emory Corbette, hmmm I can honestly say he shocked me many times; some good and some made me want to beat him to death…slowly. He also had a very interesting jou

Ok now this is the third book in the Deadglass series and unfortunately only my first by this author. I hadn't realised it was a series but I don't regret reading this book. No in fact im going to read the others in this series , starting with Hearts of Darkness because I feel that I've seriously missed out!

I was really looking forward to Lucia & Corbette's story (their interactions in the previous books were pretty interesting) but this ended up being a snooze-fest.

This book didn't go the way I expected it to. It could have been a good thing: who doesn't like being surprised in the very conventional romance genre? I mean, for the most part, it's as if authors were writing with a list of items they have to include in their books. And authors all get the same list. But here it didn't pay off. I

What I Loved
Lucia: In the beginning of the series I wasn't too impressed by her, she was a weak whiny character. By book 2 we got to learn a little more about Lucia and I started thinking ok maybe she does have a little bit of a back bone. By this final book I was way more impressed by her and happy with her personal growth and strength. She still has some moments of weakness that irritate me a little but overall much better.
Emory: We meet him all throughout the other 2 books as well.

Great read! Hearts of Chaos by Kira Brady, the third installment in her debut series, is a novel which lives up to its’ name. The beginning was a tad dawdling, nevertheless it ultimately picked up to a thrilling pace. I loved all the different mythologies this book included, as well as throughout the series as a whole.

Fixed in an alternate Seattle to the one we all know, striding into Brady's Seattle felt gritty and dark, but also innovative and different at the same time. Chaos, action and rom
Imitation of life

Darkness, shadows and chaos abounds throughout this trilogy. This theme serves as the landscape for the various shape shifters and immortals traveling between the land of the living and the land of the dead. This series is about the prolonged war between good and evil. It is about misconceptions and ideologies regarding persons in positions of power and leadership. It is about the things we do for love. Hearts of Chaos culminates a parallel journey of life and death as depicted

This was a DNF at 62%. I was tired of the saga after reading the first two books and while HoC continues the story line in a new way it didn't capture my attention. I wanted to get to the end, but by 40% I started skimming pages to get it over with. I had just invested lots of reading hours reading the first two books and wanted to find out what ultimately and how, but I finally gave up.

Hearts of Chaos continues the story of a dystopian Seattle which has human, Kivati (shifter) and Drekar (drago

Brilliant conclusion to an unforgettable paranormal romance series!

Yes, brilliant writing! I felt I was walking among the mists and myths of a very different Seattle created by Kira Brady. Lucia and Emory are intriguing characters as they develop strength and courage during their story of saving their world and of finding faithful love.

My favorite quote: “Many people recognize the difference between right and wrong, but few are brave enough to act on it.”

4.5 Stars. Have been waiting for this one and it didn't disappoint! Especially at the start - I think my favourite scene was when Corbette couldn't help himself from stepping up and vying for Lucia's hand in the challenge.

Lucia has definitely grown as a character and Corbette is as hot, moody and dark as promised, but overall, Brady's real strength is in excellent world-building. The mythology here is well-researched and I love how it flows onto the page. It's complicated and appeals to my fant

I loved the blurb and the overall plot was entertaining from start to finish. It had the elements I love in a book but overall I didn't make a connection with it. The writing was beautiful but it was not a story I could lose myself in.

I've been very excited to read this book since reading the first one in the series. I was very intrigued by what I saw of Corbette and Lucia in the previous two books and really wanted their story. Corbette is such a cold bastard. He's not a bad man, just so focused. He expects Lucia to act a certain way and obey him completely. Lucia can't and won't and it looks like their engagement is off. It takes a quest for the two to finally come together - for Corbette to really see Lucia and for Lucia t ...more

When I read the synopsis for Hearts of Chaos I was very interested as I love shape-shifters and this title certainly has plenty of those.
This one for me though took me a while to get in to, and at times I had to go back and read a previous chapter to catch on to the story as I was a little confused as there was so many characters.
Once I under stood who everyone was, the story was quite good, it was full of surprises, twist and turns as Lucia and Corbette joined forces to find the sceptre and sav

Hearts of Chaos by Kira Brady begins with the end of a battle scene. I knew right then that this is probably not a stand-alone novel. Much is alluded to that has happened before this book starts, including the connection between Emory, the Raven Lord and Lucia, the Crane. These two dance around each other, wanting each other but fighting it. Will they or won’t they?
Still I enjoyed this unusual paranormal read, even if confused at times. Never a dull moment in this novel. It is a blend of politi

I was really disappointed with this book. I had loved the previous books but this one just fell flat for me.

The plot wasn't terrible, although I think it would have been more engaging if the main characters stayed where the conflict was instead of getting stuck in a separate realm.

My real issue though is that the romance is weak, Corbette is cold, controlling and arrogant until he inexplicably decides to change his ways and declare his love for Lucia toward the end of the book. Honestly I thin

Hearts of Chaos was incredible. Never a dull moment while reading the entire Deadglass series and the third installment was no exception. Lucia’s transformation from a broken shell of a woman to the brave and courageous Crane was beautiful. Reading Emory’s self-discovery was very moving. You have to hit rock bottom to see all you really have, loose everything to know what you really need and want in life. The detailed story lines and incredible characters made Hearts of Chaos impossible to put d ...more

I filmed a video review for Hearts Of Chaos :D See?

I am a paranormal romance fan and Kira Brady pushes all my buttons. Magic, shapeshifters (including dragons!), really bad baddies and really yummy goodies. ;) I get sucked into her world and hold on for the ride. Her Deadglass Trilogy ends with Hearts Of Chaos and it was a satisfying finale. I’ve been waiting for Lucia and Corbette’s story and I loved their journey.

Great Read! Lucia and Emory were quite the interesting pair. They are betrothed, obviously there seems to be a dislike for each other. But Emory is really (i think) clueless, he had no idea what is in store for him. Lucia is an awesome character. She's fierce and easy to love. As I've mentioned before this is a gritty Seattle, but almost at times at least for me this world has the feel of an epic fantasy. Definitely different. Heart of Chaos is an exciting read. Now this series is set up as a tr ...more
