The second thing that I truly love about this story is the complexity. Gockel weaves more than just Norse mythology into Chaos. She touches on Hindu and threads science into the story to enrich it. Even though this is the third book in the series it kept me guessing about what was going to happen. Each little bit and piece provides clues but the full picture isn't really seen until the end. Furthermore, the action is fast paced with no time to allow the reader to think that it is a good stopping place for the night. Whether its action, romantic tension, or the small moments where the characters make a discovery, you will not want to put this book down.
I would definitely recommend this book and the series to anyone who is looking for a good fantasy read but is burnt out on "contemporary" or "paranormal" fantasy. Those who enjoy the Marvel movies and comics would probably also enjoy the series as well. I will also wait on the edge of my seat for next book in the series.
The author has written a great story weaving in a modern day Loki adventure with flashbacks to the Norse myths as Loki is reminded by a trigger action here. The story flows well and seamlessly. We have an interesting cast of characters such as Loki, Thor, Amy, Beatrice, Steve Rogers, Heonir, Sigyn, etc... they give us greater insight into Loki and his actions. The story would not be complete without the mythical creatures - even a unicorn! Naturally, we have the good guys, then we have the not so good and the incompetent. As is life, we have this rich cast of characters driving the story forward.
What I love the most is the way Ms Gockel has given us a very complex Loki who cannot be labelled clearly. It makes the adventure more exciting. I also enjoyed the action taking place in Chicago with its great ethnic diversity. This backdrop certainly makes sense!
I can't wait to read the next in the series! While I have loved the Norse Mythology, I definitely love this retelling as there are indeed things that cannot be seen simply as good or evil.
As the world comes tumbling down around them, Loki and Amy manage to develop their quirky and uneven relationship, to some degree. It would have been interesting to see if it would have blossomed or crashed and burned. I suspect the latter, since "Nothing he plans works out quite the way he intends" .....
There is no graphic sex, for which I am very grateful. I find that it gets tedious and redundant very quickly.
Amy loves her spider mouse. Cuddly, as well as being a useful weapon, rolled into a soft little ball ..... with eight legs .....
With a crisp and uncluttered writing style, CG makes the two worlds vivid. The action speeds along. No rest for the weary .....
After all the walls have tumbled down, Amy has the profound and magical experience of healing a unicorn. She realizes that her trials and tribulations have brought to her the knowledge that " To live in a realm wracked with chaos is to live with pain, anguishing memories and trolls. But it also means living with unicorns ....." Kinda makes it all worth, doesn't it ?
** This series must be read in order ! **
** In The Balance - novella/3.5 is highly recommended **
** There is an appendix/glossary at the end of Fates/Book IV that is immensely helpful keeping all those god and goddesses straight ! **
** "Like" CG on facebook. It's fun ! ( C. Gockel ) **

Also I'm pretty sure one of my notes just says "cera the incoporeal communist". That was probably when Cera was going on about overthrowing the proletariat, though, so I figure it was justified.
Now I need to decide if I can justify buying volume IV already...
This book has drama, adventure, more mythical beings than you can shake a stick at, in-jokes for science buffs, comic buffs, movie buffs, mythology buffs, SFF buffs....I particularly admire the way the author weaves together so many different myths to give us something new and interesting and addictive readable. Bravo!
Get this series, you will not be disappointed.
