defeat Hecate and the other crazy Red Gods is by banding together with other Witches, but is it any wonder she has a hard time trusting them?
With Izzy’s support, Darlena begins making fragile strides toward repairing the mess she made,
but she just can’t catch a break. As chaos runs rampant around her, Darlena begins to think that things would be better if she’d never become a Red Witch in the first place. But there’s no way to change the past…is there?
The final book in the Red Magic series brings Darlena face to face with impossible odds, and a
"Nothing is more terrifying than the witch who wields RED MAGIC!" By Anastasia Gkaitatzi 1 year ago
Being a Red Witch has its perks but when the Gods are trying to kill you and all of mankind, that means war....
Triumph of Chaos picks up approximately two months after the events of Gods of Chaos, the second book in the series. Darlena is trying to find out a way to defeat Hecate and protect humanity from complete extinction.
Characters we already knew, appear again, new alliances form, old ones are broken and the stakes are higher than ever...
Apart from Darlena, one character that was introduced in the second book, was Izzy from Scotland. I know that it's Darlena's story but I would like to know a little bit more about Izzy. She's essential to the story and she helps Darlena become the witch she was always destined to be.
On the other hand, Darlena is a complicated heroine. She's brave for standing up against the Gods but she can also be impulsive and sometimes a bad judge of
character and that's what I believe makes her more original and unique.
The book was well written and although the pace was a little slow, in the end I didn't mind at all. The plot was full of surprises and twists. I still have a few unanswered questions and I hope that the author would consider writing a novella. :)
Jen McConnel created a fascinating world inspired by the Greek, Celtic and Egyptian mythology and made it one of my favorite YA series!
I definitely recommend the Red Magic series to YA readers, especially those who love mythology
