Alice Will is the first book in the Dreams of Chaos series. It doesn’t take long for this book to draw you in. There are may colorful characters and a great story line; it will keep you entertained from beginning to end. While reading the book I was particularly struck by the way the author was able to weave the idea of the empty void of Chaos holding all possibilities. I also really liked the way the book speaks about the concept of the mind being what creates reality. I have worked with both of these concepts spiritually and it is great to see them woven into a novel. I think this story will be a great way to introduce these ideas to my kids when they are a little older.
My favorite character in the series so far is Prowler. I love his sarcasm and wit. He brings great humor to the story with his antics.
Trotter is a teenager with powers she is reluctantly getting acquainted with. Although, living among humans who aren’t fond of magic is a great motivator to not really try to use them at all. The problem with that is, because she isn’t using them, her powers are leaking out and she’s having difficulty controlling them. She happy just going about her day like a normal person and not using powers, but apparently, she’s not going to have much of a choice.
When the world as she knows it begins to experience changes, Trotter is accused of being the one that started it. It was a case of wrong place, wrong time, but fear does strange things to people and now Trotter has to find the true source of the imbalance. Enter Alice. War is coming…and Trotter is the key to stopping it.
Intrigue. Laughter. Sadness. Chaos. Connection. Imagination. It’s a roller coaster you never want to stop riding.
