Review: Chaos by Megan Duncan

Title: Chaos

Is any shot at living, worth dying for?

They thought they’d be safe, but a world ruled by chaos doesn’t die easily.

When Max turned on the radio transmissions assuring safety, they came. But, it wasn’t just survivors of the demon apocalypse that crawled their way into the abandoned military base. A myriad of beastly demons unlike any they’ve ever seen, came as well. Abby, and her companions, struggle to survive as the evil around them grows. Desperate to endure, and to defend their fellow survivors, Abby and a squad of fierce fighters, take on a dangerous mission that has deadly consequences. ~ Courtesy of Goodreads

Chaos, the second novel in Megan Duncan's Agents of Evil series, is an action packed horror adventure that will leave you breathlessly waiting for the next book to be released. The action, the romance (Abby and Max are just the cutest, even with demons around), the demons! Oh, wow, I love Duncan's demons. They're so creepy they'll make your skin crawl!

I felt Chaos had a lot more action in it. Released focused more on the four original characters making there way in a desolate, demon-filled wasteland, whereas Chaos focuses more on survival and fighting back against the demons. The action really pushes the storyline forward in a great way. Duncan also has a way of leaving you terrified everytime the characters face off against the demons. I was, on more than one occasion, terrified for the characters and praying they'd be okay. I'll admit, sometimes I'd even turn ahead a few pages to make sure they'd be okay!

There were a few things that got on my nerves while reading Chaos. The first and foremost was the overuse of the word chaos. I felt like it was used at least once in every chapter, which sort of made it cheesy. Really, the only other thing was that I read Released a LONG time ago, so when I was reading Chaos I occasionally felt a little lost. Not story wise, but just references here and there that I knew meant something, but couldn't remember exactly what. So I'm going to say, for maximum enjoyment, read Released (or at least skim through to refresh you're memory) before diving into Chaos.

Sometimes with books and movies, the sequel just never stands up to the original. This is not the case here. Chaos is an awesome sequel. It's got all the action, without sacrificing the characters or plot. I highly recommend Chaos (and Released if you haven't read it, obviously) to anyone who loves paranormal romance, or just a good adventure!
