Persepolae has fallen.
Karnopolis has burned.
As the dark forces of the Undead sweep across what remains of the empire, Nazafareen must obey the summons of a demon queen to save Darius’s father, Victor. Burdened with a power she doesn’t understand and can barely control, Nazafareen embarks on a perilous journey through the shadowlands to the House-Behind-the-Veil. But what awaits her there is worse than she ever imagined…
A thousand leagues away, Tijah leads a group of children on a desperate mission to rescue the prisoners at Gorgon-e Gaz, the stronghold where the oldest daēvas are kept. To get there, they must cross the Great Salt Plain, a parched ruin occupied by the armies of the night. A chance encounter adds a ghost from the past to their number. But will they arrive in time to avert a massacre?
And in the House-Behind-the-Veil, Balthazar and the Prophet Zarathustra discover that they have more in common than meets the eye. But is it enough to redeem the necromancer’s bloodstained soul and thwart his mistress’s plans?
As a final showdown looms with Queen Neblis, the truth of the daēvas’ origins is revealed and three worlds collide in this thrilling conclusion to the Fourth Element series.
Queen of Chaos is a richly imagined, intensely engaging and simply inspiring novel.
On this last book of the Fourth Element series, we will already know where Daevas really came from, how Neblis was able to create those evil druj, and how Nazafareen have that power just like the Prophet. Aside from those, we will also see what happened to Victor on his journey to Neblis’ kingdom and what happened to Tijah and the children daevas she was with when Nazafareen and Darius leave them to follow the Prophet.
This book answered all my questions on the first two books in the series. This was one of the best series so far that I really liked and the author writing skills just contributed on it. The way she wrote it, just like what I’ve said on my last review, was great. It really helped that the author could write a story that will show you the story itself by describing its vast world and characters and even showing you the emotions of each characters. I also like how each scenes were all connected on the previous scenes from the last two books. So, if you’ve read the first book and you’ve got lot of questions about it, then I really suggest that you finish it until this novel so you wouldn’t be left wondering.
Another thing I’ve liked on this series was the added themes and how I could read those nice bits of history here.
The characters never failed to amuse me. On this book, I’ve got to learn the history of some characters and learning about it was fascinating. When I’ve read those part that showed their past, I was really surprised on how it all make sense.
I just didn’t like how it ended as there was so much to tell us but I was glad to know that everything would not really end on this book. I’m happy to know that there would be another book that would show how the adventure of Tijah and her company will go and what happened to Culach and the other characters.
I am really suggesting for you to read this series because this will definitely make you like the world I’ve entered. This wonderfully written book will just stay with you until the last page.
