Formats: Hardcover, eBook


Can they change their destiny?

They kissed only once—and it was electric, like the air before a storm. But Corinthe and Luc broke the rules of the universe, and learned too late that their love would have consequences. In the dizzying aftermath, Luc refuses to accept his destiny—not if it means a life without Corinthe. As a fire rages through the Crossroads that connect worlds, Luc must find a way to turn back time and save Corinthe once and for all.

Meanwhile, Luc’s 15-year-old sister Jasmine starts to realize things are not as they seem when time begins stuttering, sending her everyday life in San Francisco spinning into chaos. She’s thrown into the path of Ford, a troubled soul with a secret past, who helps her unravel the mysterious threads that connect them all.

Two breathtaking romances interweave across time in this story of what lies on the other side of Fate, as both Jas and Luc discover the incredible lengths they will go for love.

 The Review

CHAOS is the exciting and action-packed second book in a series about fate and love that takes readers on a journey through time and through worlds to find out whether love is strong enough to alter destiny. It is a suspenseful story filled with interesting twists, intriguing temporal paradoxes, and fascinating concepts about chance and destiny and balance and disorder.

Picking up right where the first book left off, CHAOS follows Lucas as he attempts to fulfill his promise to Corinthe, Miranda as she continues to seek revenge, and Jasmine as she tries to find out just what happened to her. New characters are introduced, new universes are explored, and new information comes to light about Jas and Luc, making this sequel an even more captivating installment than the first.

Lucas swore he would find a way to get Corinthe back. With his sister safe, there is nothing left to stop him from trying to change the hand that fate dealt. But navigating the Crossroads and finding a way to reverse time might be too impossible a task. Especially without the help of the one person who was able to do what he so desperately wants to do.

Even though the risks are great, the chance of success slim, and the likelihood that his actions will have unintended consequences, Luc has to try. He may have only known Corinthe for a short time, but already she is everything to him and worth throwing the world into chaos to save. He just needs to figure out who he’d be willing to sacrifice for her return.

Author Lanie Bross built upon the ideas she introduced in FATES and created a story that is fast-paced, gripping, and incredibly entertaining. Developing Jasmine’s story arc in this sequel was a risky decision, but one that paid off. Her story is thrilling and full of surprises and allowed for the addition of an appealing new character. Adding time travel to the mix was another fantastic decision, giving the story layers, moments that wow, and giving readers plenty to think about after the story’s end.

With the universes kept strictly in balance and fate dictating everyone’s outcome, the idea that one boy’s love could create such turmoil makes CHAOS an enthralling and tension-filled and thoroughly engaging read and a fabulous addition to this series.
