Children of Chaos

Dave Duncan, Author . Tor $25.95 (349p) ISBN 978-0-7653-1483-3

Duncan's storytelling has never been better in this superb fantasy, the first of two books set on a dodecahedral world. Fifteen years after the doge of the walled city of Celebre handed over his four children as hostages to the invading Vigaelians besieging Celebre, the siblings have grown up separately as captives in the land of Vigaelia. One boy, Benard, has become a stonemason of amazing, god-given talent in the city of Kosord. Another boy, Orlando, has become an initiate in the cult of Weru, the god of storm and battle. Frena, who was a babe in arms 15 years earlier, has no memory of the family she was wrenched from, and the revelation of her past history completely changes her life. As for the fourth child, Dantio, he supposedly died early on. How the children of Celebre reunite makes for a captivating, adventure-filled story. Born in Scotland, Duncan (The Jaguar Knights ) now lives in Canada. (June)
