Two siblings must overcome their own individual hardships in The Soul of Chaos by Gregory Wunderlin. While Rurik spends his days in the mines, overseeing and looking out for his fellow miners, his sister Arkalis must manage the family estate and lands. Neither sibling expected to be in the position they find themselves in but each has their own way of dealing with current events. Unbeknownst to them, dark forces lurk just beyond the horizon, and with them comes a war no one is prepared for.
As a lover of all fantasy books, I can easily say that The Soul of Chaos by Gregory Wunderlin is an amazing read. Not only is it well written with a vast and complex world but the characters are original and unique as well. Wunderlin has such an incredible way with words, blending detailed descriptions with action-packed scenes in a seemingly effortless manner. The Soul of Chaos is rich with lore and the magic/rune system that is introduced was something new that I very much enjoyed. Considering this is Wunderlin’s debut novel, I was genuinely surprised to see how well-written this is. I also thoroughly enjoyed the split between the two siblings' perspectives although I did favor Kalis’ POV more. Overall, The Soul of Chaos is a fantastic book that may start off a bit slow but leaves you wanting more by the end of it all. If you love fantasy novels, especially ones that branch out into different genres, then this is the book for you.
