Five young people raised in a strict British boarding school have discovered that they are not what they seem-human. Amelia comes from the fourth dimension; Victor is a synthetic being with control over the molecules of matter; Colin possesses psychic powers; Vanity can find ways to walk through walls; and Quentin is a warlock. As the five bond through shared adversity, they learn to control their own paradigms of reality and escape the confines of their "school." Now, they must battle the gods, as the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Wright concludes his "Chronicles of Chaos" trilogy (Orphans of Chaos; Fugitives of Chaos) with the inevitable confrontation between these five young heroes and their elders, the powerful creatures known as the Olympians. He delivers a fast-moving story that's panoramic in scope and filled with characters that could be drawn from the pages of superhero comic books yet are nonetheless appealing and believable. A good choice for both adult and YA sf collections.
