Wealth. Desire. Power. All could be yours in the Paldimori Games.
Lia Davies’ quiet life starts spiraling out of control when she becomes the center of the biggest scandal to ever hit her small town. Spurned by the art community she loves and in jeopardy of losing her business, she makes a desperate decision to enter a mysterious game.
What seems like the solution to all of her problems turns into a deadly fight for her life as inexplicable events begin to occur. Chaos—the charismatic and condescending leader of the six Paldimori Houses—calls them “accidents.” Lia isn’t buying it. Especially when she discovers that she bears the mark of the Chosen, who are part of an ancient prophecy that could determine the future of an entire race.
Lia wants nothing to do with saving anyone other than herself, but she may not have a choice.

The synopsis of Waking Chaos is an intriguing, assault of brilliance. This book is relentless, it is fast-paced and keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. I found it to be gripping, glorious and breath-taking. I adored how Waking Chaos is essentially a character study of a young woman who is desperately trying to find her way when her life gets turned upside down. I loved traveling with her as she encounters new places and new people. It is a scary journey at times but mostly it is an enjoyable one. It was like the author T.L. Callahan had a spell on me, I was captivated by her spell (her writing in other words) and I was drawn in and the only way to break this spell was to fully immerse myself in this brilliant tale.
The story of Waking Chaos was exhilarating, I found it to be unique and dynamic and it did keep me on the edge of my reading seat from beginning to end. The pacing alone was exceptional, it was a steady stream-lined plot in which the action was balanced perfectly so that it was never too much or too full on. I was impressed how Callahan managed to do this, how she managed to strike the perfect balance so this to me screams that she really is a talented author who knows what she is doing!
The characters Callahan has created are simply wonderful. They are the type of characters that are very likable, and one, in particular, was very seductive! You will have to read more about this novel to find out why and how… seriously though, this book really does have expertly created characters that are all individual as well as memorable.
