Waiting on Wednesday: DAUGHTER OF CHAOS by Jen McConnel

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

I am always game for a witch story by Jen McConnel's DAUGHTER OF CHAOS sounds beyond amazing. Choosing a path that you think is a joke that turns out to be something dark and powerful is intriguing.  This novel is on the top of my list for next year and I cannot wait to read it.

March 11, 2014


Witches must choose the path they will follow, and Darlena Agara is no exception. She’s been putting it off long enough, and in her case, ignoring it has not made it go away. In a moment of frustration, Darlena chooses to follow Red Magic, figuring she had outsmarted the powers that be, since there’s no such thing as Red Magic. But alas, Darlena’s wrong (again) and she becomes a newly declared Red Witch.
Her friends are shocked and her parents horrified by the choice Darlena has made. As a Red Witch, she now governs one third of the world’s chaos. She is the walking personification of pandemonium, turmoil, and bedlam, just as the patrons of Red Magic would have it to be.

But Darlena believes there must be more to Red Magic than chaos and destruction, and she sets out on a journey to achieve balance. Only doing so puts her at odds with the dark goddess Hecate, who simply will not allow Darlena to quit. She encourages Darlena to embrace who and what she is and to leave good magic to the good witches. If only Darlena could, life would be simple, and she would not be the Daughter of Chaos.

DAUGHTER OF CHAOS is the first in a YA paranormal trilogy.

  2. I heard about this book from The Regulator when they announced that they were doing an event with the author in early April. I was stoked to get to meet another YA author, especially of a book that looked right up my ally! I loved the author and I loved the book! I can't wait to read the second one!
