The characters

Darlena is a Daughter of Chaos. You see, every witch must choose her path. Green which is connected to the earth, White which is for grace and old wisdom and Black for witches that focus on the darker aspects of spirituality. When it was Darlena's turn to choose her path, she chose the Red path, thinking that there's no such thing as Red magic. But she was wrong.

As a matter of fact, Red is the most powerful magic and being a Daughter of Chaos means that you can control chaos and you decide whether to punish and kill people or to restore the balance. Darlena wants to do the latter but she doesn't have mush time because Persephone, Aphrodite, Pele, Kali and Hecate want Darlena for their plans. 

But that's not the only thing she has to worry about. Justin, her first boyfriend and the same guy who still wants her, supports and stands by her side in the beginning. But when Darlena does something that hurts his feelings and trust, she loses him. Her parents have no recollection of their daughter being a Red Witch and someone in her life wants her dead so that person can become the new Red Witch...

Darlena is a fresh YA heroine that proved herself and now she's become one of my favorite heroines! She doesn't really care if there is a goddess in the same room with her, she will talk and behave just like she would do with her best friend. She's afraid to make bad decisions but the truth is, who isn't?


Daughter of Chaos is a fast paced and action packed first novel in a very promising, new and fresh YA series that will make you love mythology even more!
