The Paldimori Gods are rising, and my powers are growing, but I’m no closer to solving the puzzle of the prophecy. Bennett whisks me away to the House of Chaos hidden in the mountains of Montana for what I think is some R&R. Instead, I'm thrust into training to become his co-ruler.
Torn between my duties as a Kyrion-In-Training and as a Chosen, I’m failing on all fronts. When shocking revelations come to light, the life I’ve just begun to re-build is put in jeopardy. Some truths will set you free and some will break you completely.
T.L. Callahan is the author of the fantasy/PNR series Paldimori Gods Rising. She has always been a book lover; devouring romance, fantasy, and poetry since she was a young girl growing up in Kentucky. Her love for the outdoors inspired hours of wandering the woods pretending to be on adventures discovering magical creatures and being the heroine of her own stories. That hasn’t changed much these days. Never knowing what you can find around the next corner keeps her seeking out new adventures from backpacking in the Wind River Range of Wyoming to piloting a sailboat down the Tagus River in Portugal. T.L. lives in Ohio with her husband, son, and a cat that thinks he’s a dog.
Must admit that as much as I don’t like Lia...and am beginning to despise Bennett, the world the author has created is extremely intriguing. I want to know more..and can’t wait for the next book in the series.
I want Click to repeat his actions to Jameson on Bennett. I also tried stalking the book with a face and the author’s website to see when the next book is going to be released. I really enjoy this world that much that I’m stalking websites.
Anyways, I wouldn’t read this book without having read book 1 at least. I’m pretty sure you could get away with not having read book 2. But if it were me, I’d read from the beginning.
Wow, what a cliffhanger!! So far I think this has been my favorite book in the whole series. All of the different back stories/ history of Lia Davies and so much plot! I really liked the way there was a goal that Lia and Bennett were moving towards and how it was like a 2 step (one step forward, two steps back). They have both gotten themselves into some kind of predicament by the lying and cover ups..... I can't wait to see what happens next!!!
Just wow. I've been following this author because I love her work, and this book just took it up a notch. I could not put this book down. When I got to the last page, I kept looking for more pages. I didn't want the book to end. I'm so in love with these characters and can't wait to see what happens next!!!
In T.L Callahan's Rising Chaos, Lia Davis had known there would be things expected of her as Bennett's bond-mate, but when he whisked her away to his home she realised just how much was expected from her. Raised with no knowledge of their people, Lia finds herself under the merciless regime of Bennett's Arxhai, Selene, as she tries to shape her into the very image of the Kyrion's mother. Resentment flies high, as everyone regards her with suspicion and the power she holds wreaks havoc. She must not only learn her place but complete the task expected from her as Chaos' Chosen. But a mysterious voice keeps telling her to leave, the clock is ticking, she has a task to perform, a duty to uphold, and a role to learn, but can she do it? One thing is certain, she is living up to her title as Chaos' Chosen, as chaos follows on her heels wherever she goes.
Rising Chaos is book 3 in T.L Callahan's Paldimori Gods Rising Series. Having not read the first books in the series there were times where I felt I didn't know enough about what had happened to make this work as a stand-alone, but despite this, I still really enjoyed the plot. Written from Lia's first-person-narrative perspective you are given a front seat to her trials, tribulations, and doubts. Frustration and tempers run high as Lia tries to gain control over her wild powers and be shaped into the figure she needs to become to sit beside Bennett. But at every turn, she is breaking laws, fumbling tasks, or being disrespectful. I enjoyed how Lia held on to trust issues spurred by actions in the previous books and is constantly questioning motives and whether she is trusting the right people. Action, chaos, challenges, and deceptions drive the character-driven plot as she Lia tries to become the person she is expected to be, but all the time, withheld information, secrets, and past trauma threaten her control. I found Lia to be well-developed. Three is a lot to this plot, ancient prophecies, houses, and conflict, and I feel someone who has already read those would have a fuller feel for the situations unfolding and the characters. A strong fantasy with amazing scenes, and unfolding drama that will get you hooked, and eager to know what came before and what will follow.
