Sins of Chaos
Posted by Literary Titan
Sins of Chaos is another suspenseful entry in Shana Congrove’s Breedline Series. In this book, the reader follows Abbey as she tries to find and protect her beloved Steven, who is being tracked by Valkin Steele. He wants to use Steven’s unique healing abilities to heal his wife. Though he has backed scientists who have run ruthless tests on the Breedline species. While Valkin Steele is a man who deals in drugs and human sex-trafficking, he is not the worst thing the Breedlines have to deal with. Three supernatural beings of dark powers known as the Fury are terrorizing Berkeley and the San Francisco Bay area with a wave of brutal murders.
The first thing that struck me about Congrove’s writing style is how easy it is to read, which helps ensure readers are completely engrossed in this fantasy world rather than trying to make sense of it.
Congrove has built a world that is believable and has given it rules that make sense, which is odd to say about a supernatural thriller that leans heavy into paranormal activities is ‘believable’, but nothing is ever over the top and when it is it’s simply entertaining.
As I expected, the characters in the story are uniquely intriguing and fun to follow because of their fascinating quirks. Congrove has a large cast of characters, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing as it definitely gives this story more of an epic fantasy feel where a large world is being explored. The story follows multiple characters perspectives, taking readers through various angles of the story, which is helpful to tell a story that has depth but borders on being overwhelming at times. Even with a wide cast of characters I was still able to connect to some of the characters in the story. In their fight with Valkin Steele, I was worried that they were going to lose (I nearly bit my fingernails off) and I was invested in the outcome of the fight. Then near the end when the Breedline Covenant attacks the Furies… ah I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that I like seeing the good guys on the verge of losing to the bad guys because it makes the story more believable and suspenseful at the same time.
Sins of Chaos is a wildly entertaining shifter fantasy novel that reminds me of season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but with a much bigger world and more characters that are easily compelling and fun to follow.
