Book 2 of the Soulbearer Series

Life is dull without a little Chaos.

Trouble is more than just a nickname for Arden Soulbearer. It seems to follow her wherever she goes. And no one knows this better than her protector, Devarius Tel’Brien.

Dev thought that by moving Arden to Gravaria so she could learn how to control Loku, the chaos god whose soul inhabits her body, life would be simpler. Wrong. Not only is he continually torn between his duty and his growing feelings for the Soulbearer, but he also has to contend with the rival prince who wishes to claim her heart. Adding to his problems, a group of powerful mages have banded together to rid the world of the disembodied chaos god once and for all. Of course, that means they have to destroy Arden in the process.

From Underworld Love Addiction:

“This series has a little bit of everything, which makes it an exciting read.  It is built around an amazing fantasy world which reminds me a little of a historical romance mixed up with an intricate magical fantasy with a little mystery, suspense and humor on the side.  I have to say, as much as I loved the first book in this series, this one is even better.” – 5/5 stars

From 3 Partners in Shopping:

“Once you begin this trilogy you are hooked. It is full of action and mystery. “– 5 stars

From Night Owl Reviews:

This book is action-packed from the very start and will keep you guessing as to the true identity of the enemy that doesn’t want Arden to reach Gravaria to fulfill her destiny. A Soul For Chaos is a great read and I was sorry to see this story come to an end.” –4/5 stars

From Book on a Wire:

“I loved Loku. To me, he was the most interesting character in the entire book, and I’m interested in reading the rest of the series just to see more of him… What I enjoyed most, though, was the world building.” — 4/5 stars

From The Reading Cafe:

“A Soul for Chaos is another great story by Crista McHugh
