Publisher's Summary

Having two of his fingers cut off at an early age hadn't done much to make Xandrith an agreeable fellow. Besides marking him as a pariah and having him shunned by even his own family, it had also hurt. A lot. Being stripped of a few of his fingers and cast out of the Order of Mages had left him bitter and angry, but if there was any consolation to be had it was that he was doing rather well in his new line of work. While perforating people for money might not have been the most noble of callings, it was quite lucrative. Well, it had been quite lucrative.

In a conspiracy of fate seemingly beyond his control, Xan soon finds himself facing a dilemma of conscience, and that isn't something he's familiar with. One dilemma leads to another, and before long the mage-turned-assassin finds himself performing more and more honorable deeds. Worse yet, without even attempting to do so he manages to acquire friends and to develop a sense of compassion.

As Xan struggles with his burgeoning humanity, a terrible darkness begins to wake in the world. The Order of Mages, once an overbearing power of control, seems to be losing its grip as a terrifying doom of their own creation rises in the north. As if that isn't enough, the horror brought upon the world by the folly of the mages may be only the precursor to something far more sinister.

    "A great book is defined by the journey"

    The book started a little slow but picked up. It was a great journey through character development, but it seems like the ending was rushed.

    Story
    "OK book for middle school- not for adults"
    What disappointed you about Chaos Awakens Trilogy?

    Written on a 9th grade level and is too simplistic.


    What was most disappointing about Heath Pfaff’s story?

    I found myself bored and unintrested while listening to the book.


    Have you listened to any of Paul J. McSorley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He seems to be ok, and more of a midwestern accent which I found refreshing.

    Story
    "Good book with a good narrator."

    I found the protagonist likable his constant struggle between what he is and what he wants to be is interesting. I liked that he has a darker view of the world and is not trying g to save everyone he comes across. towards the end of the book he acts more like a traditional hero but by then he is dealing with his increasing mental instability and guilt which is also quite interesting. overall it was a good investment of 30+hours.

    Story
    "Hired Assassin to Hero"
    Where does Chaos Awakens Trilogy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am an avid audiobook listener and this book ranks high on my list of books. The story kept me wanting to keep listening so I could find out what was going to happen next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters interactions with each other. The story had a nice, natural flow which held my interest. From assassin to hero.


    Have you listened to any of Paul J. McSorley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Paul McSorley narrating Heath Platt’s trilogy Hungering Saga. I do enjoy his narration and the voices he creates for the different characters. His voices helps to bring the characters in the story to life. Good Job!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I mostly listen to books at work. This book made me actually want to work overtime!


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful writing and narration! Keep it up!

    "Great story"

    I was reluctant to listen to this trilogy but in the end I really enjoyed it, the story is compete no 4th book. My only disappointment was the end, I wish the author would have put a little more effort in the last chapter.

    Story
    "An Adventerous journey of an unlikely hero"
    If you could sum up Chaos Awakens Trilogy in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, engaging, and unique


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Xandrith of course and his evolving identity. Faced with seemingly impossible obstacles, he never lost focus or hope. It may have waned, but was never lost even when his mind was broken.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Cassa shot him with an arrow during his attempt to hide and escape. It was kind of poetic, being shot by the woman who would become his love.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Darkness Falls and Chaos Awakens


    Any additional comments?

    Although I loved it, was a little uncomfortable with the Hayley/Daisy part being a love interest, even if it is one sided. It was a little on the verge of pedophilia. Not impressed with that part. I could have done with out it. Yes young girls have crushes, but in her case, esp. after just being a family girl and then being tortured and rape, most victims would seek parental figures not lovers. She was too young to be in that mind frame. She would mostly fear men or hate them. Even if she began to trust him, those feelings would be more of wanting a father whom she just lost, a protector. So I didn't care for those insinuations.

    "Worth the credit."

    If you're looking for a progressive and intense story, spend a credit on this. It is a progressive tale of mechna and death.

    "Terrible reading, great story."
    Would you listen to Chaos Awakens Trilogy again? Why?

    No. The reading grates too much


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Xandrith is a great hero.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Paul J. McSorley’s performances?

    Certainly not!


    Any additional comments?

    Its testament to the quality of the story that I put up with the reading. Tripping over words and incredibly bad voices nearly ruined it (the falsetto fae queen saying "we must away" nearly broke me, as did the wizard with an attempted Jamaican accent. The story is everything you want in a fantasy book though and I would still recommend.
