The Child of Chaos (The Chronicles of Chaos Book 1) by Glen Dahlgren
Nothing can break the stranglehold the gods of Order have on the world . . . except a roll of the dice.
An irresistible longing drags young Galen to an ancient vault where, long ago, the gods of Order locked Chaos away. Chaos promises power to the one destined to liberate it, but Galen's dreams warn of dark consequences.
He isn't the only one racing to the vault, however. Horace, the bully who lives to torment Galen, is determined to unleash Chaos--and he might know how to do it.
Galen's imagination always got him into trouble, but now it may be the only thing that can prevent Horace from unraveling the world.
"This is no ordinary sword and sorcery story. This is what fantasy fiction should be. [Glen Dahlgren is a] novelist who I think will become more widely known as his skill is appreciated." --Piers Anthony. New York Times best-selling author of Xanth
