    MUST READ SERIES!!!

    I love this series and only wish it had more than three books in it. I am reaching the end of the third book, Titans of Chaos, and while I'm dying to find out the conclusion, I'm dreading not having any more to read about Amelia, the girl who can see and move through multiple extra dimensions; Colin, the boy who can do almost anything he wants if he's inspired enough; Quentin, the friend of the spirits (not a magician!); Victor, the atomically manipulating stoic; and Vanity, the Phaecian with the great boat and the ability to find passages, compartments, and shortcuts where it is questionable they existed before.

    SPOILER ALERTS!!! If you've read the first book, you know these are four children of the titans of chaos (Uranians) and one Phaecian who were reverted to the shape of human children to be held hostage in an orphanage. In the first book, they start to realize all of this and make an attempt to run, but fail. In this book, they make a run for it and get out, finding out more about their abilities.

    terrific fantasy

    The ORPHANS OF CHAOS quintet of students (¿Primus¿ Victor Triumph, 'Secunda¿ Amelia Windrose, ¿Tertia¿ Vanity Fair, ¿Quartinus¿ Colin FirBold, and Quentin Nemo) were imprisoned in the isolated British boarding school. However, they banded together to learn just who they really are and succeeded for the moment on their quest. Still the Headmaster Reginald Boggin and his staff manage to recapture their only students and steal away their memories once again. However, this time the Staff allows Amelia, who can observe and influence the physical world in several dimensions, to know the truth so she can explain what is happening to the others under the watchful eyes and ears of Headmaster Boggin. Still these teens reject adult supervision as they plot to escape again using their powers. Vanity locates hidden passages in locations where none seemingly existed before her finding them. Quentin is a warlock with a familiar, Apsu a walking stick. Colin employs magic by mentally picturing what he wants to achieve and willing it to happen. Victor uses his mind to telekinetically control matter. Meanwhile Staffer Grendel Glum makes plans to have his way sexually with Amelia, either willingly on her part or rape. --- Book two of the Chaos trilogy is a terrific entry that late teens and adults will fully appreciate as the ¿battle¿ between the Staff and the students continues. As the one who sees all, Amelia tells the tale that grips readers from the start as everyone including the five superpowerful teenagers want to know why they were abduction and, forced to have harsh training more like an incarceration than a school (stay tuned to find out). FUGITIVES OF CHAOS delightfully merges a coming of age first loves with terrific references to classic mythology (my favorite- Beowulf included) as John C. Wright¿s epic continues to spellbind fantasy fans. --- Harriet Klausner
