Fragile Chaos
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance
Release Date: July 11th 2017
Radiant Crown Publishing


Summary:


A GOD OF WAR SEEKING RESTORATION.

AN UNWILLING SACRIFICIAL BRIDE.

BETRAYAL THAT COULD DESTROY THEM BOTH.

“[E]very fiber of my being is woven from the rage of mortals.”

Theodric, the young God of War, has a talent for inciting conflict and bloodshed. After being stripped of his powers by his older brother, King of Gods, he sets out to instigate a mortal war to prove himself worthy of being restored to power.

“I loved Kisk once; it was my home… But that was before. This is now.”

Sixteen-year-old Cassia, like many in the modern era, believes gods and goddesses to be just a myth. Enemy to her country and an orphan of the war, she has no time for fairy tales. That’s until religious zealots from Theo’s sect offer her up as a sacrifice.

Can Cassia and Theo end the mortal war and return balance to the earth and heavens? Or, will their game of fate lead down a path of destruction, betrayal, and romance neither of them saw coming?

Interview with Amber R. Duell


What inspired you to write Fragile Chaos?

I read an article about the mummified remains of a young Incan girl that had been sacrificed to the gods 500 years ago. I felt for her because she was so young, and I began to wonder what she thought would happen after she died. Everything stemmed from that.

Can you tell us a little bit about the next books in Fragile Chaos or what you have planned for the future?

Fragile Chaos stands alone, but I’ve been working on a few other projects: a Thumbelina retelling set in 1930 vaudeville, one that involves the Sandman, and I just started a brand new fantasy WIP.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Fragile Chaos?

There are two main characters: Theodric and Cassia.
Theo is the God of War and youngest of six siblings. Most of his power was ripped away when he hesitated to end a very bloody war. He’s been trying to prove himself worthy ever since but it’s not going well. After 800 years, he’s grown angry and bitter about his situation and is desperate to be restored.
Sixteen-year-old Cassia is the sister of a Kisken traitor. Because her brother brought their island into the war, her entire family was ostracized. Even after her parents died in the bombings, the survivors cast her out, but Cassia never gave up hope that things would get better. At least not until the zealots murder her in their temple.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

Marie Rutkoski. The Winner’s Trilogy is so beautifully written that I could read it a million times. The prose, the world building, Arin (*fans myself*)… It’s great. I’ve actually met her twice and totally forgot how to speak like a normal human. (Which may be why she remembered me the 2nd time, haha!)

If you could time-travel would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go and why would you like to visit this particular time period?

Definitely the past! I always used to say Tudor England but then I realized they had some pretty awful torture methods. A tattooed girl pops up out of nowhere in a pair of jeans—I don’t see that ending well for me. I’d probably be branded a witch the moment I opened my mouth. Instead, I think the early 1900’s would be fun! They still had fancy dresses which I’m a huge sucker for, but I’d likely get to keep my head.

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?

I’ve had everything from mice to horses, but currently I have two cats that I adopted back in 2006. They’re both the sweetest. Kids, strangers, each other, it doesn’t matter—they want all the cuddles!


Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us today.
