Book Details

Titans of Chaos completes John Wright's The Chronicles of Chaos. Launched in Orphans of Chaos--a Nebula Award Nominee for best novel in 2006, and a Locus Year's Best Novel pick for 2005--and continued in Fugitives of Chaos, the trilogy is about five orphans raised in a strict British boarding school who discovered that they are not human.
The students have been kidnapped, robbed of their powers, and raised in ignorance by super-beings. The five have made incredible discoveries about themselves. Amelia is apparently a fourth-dimensional being; Victor is a synthetic man who can control the molecular arrangement of matter; Vanity can find secret passageways through solid walls; Colin is a psychic; Quentin is a warlock. Each power comes from a different paradigm or view of the universe. They have learned to control their strange abilities and have escaped into our world: now their true battle for survival begins.
The Chronicles of Chaos is situated in the literary territory of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books, and Neil Gaiman's American Gods, with some of the flash and dazzle of superhero comics.

In The News

“I don't know if John Wright's intent for Orphans of Chaos was to write a Harry Potter for grownups. But that's what he's accomplished. . . .highly enjoyable.” —SFsite on Orphans of Chaos

“An exciting, unusual, and very satisfying ride through the author's imagination, and the results are certainly going to make Wright even more of a hot property. If it wasn't as well written as it is, it would still be a nice antidote to the generic fantasy that lurks behind most new covers lately, and it's a lot more than that as well.” —Chronicle on Orphans of Chaos

“In the first installment of the Chronicle of Chaos series, common associations of high school with prison prove spectacularly well founded. . .Wright's growing fandom will revel in his overlapping frames of reference.” —Booklist on Orphans of Chaos

“Wright has written a modern-day fantasy that borrows from many traditions and mythologies and has the feel of an epic. A solid selection for most libraries.” —Library Journal on Orphans of Chaos

“Formidably erudite, a stylist capable of moving prose poetry and hilarious rodomontade and many measures between, a master of exceedingly complex plotting, and astonishingly fecund with ideas. These qualities are abundantly present in Orphans of Chaos. . . . Orphans is thus an excellent book, a splendid exercise in high-concept metaphysical romance.” —Locus on Orphans of Chaos

“Start of a complex mythology-based series from the author of the astonishing far-future Golden Age trilogy . . . . Fascinatingly, dazzlingly, almost pointlessly erudite fantasy that trends inexorably toward science fiction; addicts will pounce.” —Kirkus, starred review on Orphans of Chaos

“Wright’s myth-infused fantasy looks like something older Harry Potter fans might enjoy with its creaky British boarding school setting and its five ageless orphans—Colin, Quentin, Victor, Vanity, and Amelia each with a supernatural gift. . . . Those who like sophisticated fantasy with a mild erotic charge will be most rewarded.” —Publishers Weekly on Orphans of Chaos
