While Zavier Sullivan may be the calm, reserved brother, his dragon is not. Especially since the beautiful, unorganized demi-goddess, Danielle Roberts—a.k.a Elle—moved into the mansion and into his life. She disturbs his OCD and makes him yearn for things he shouldn’t, but he can’t stay away from her. Nor can he deny her anything. Including his blood.
Ever since arriving at the home of the Sons of War, Elle has been plagued with dreams of the past and future. The visions are taking a toll, causing her debilitating headaches and ruining her sleep, but she doesn’t know what it all means. Her mother, Nyx, the Goddess of Night, has never bothered to show up and explain things to her. Until she arrives and unlocks Elle’s powers, promptly transforming her into a half-daimon, half-goddess. Now, Zavier may be her only hope of holding onto her humanity, but can she bond with him after everything she’s seen? Especially in the midst of everything the Sons and their mates are going through.
As exciting and action-packed as this story is, Chaotic War is definitely not one to read out of sequence. Very little effort was made on the part of Lia Davis to develop the characters for readers new to the series. Moreover, the storyline seemed unnecessarily rushed, leaving the characters’ behavior mercurial, to say the least. For an otherwise great read, it is most unfortunate that these elements leave readers floundering to piece together the history of prior Sons of War novels only to have the story end abruptly and without a clear conclusion. As I have not read the preceding stories in the Sons of War series, I can only presume that these issues would not present a problem if read in the author’s intended sequence.
