About this eBook

When the veil fell, demons made Los Angeles their new home...

Half-demon Gem knows only that she and her brother, Del, are escaped experiments. On the run from the cruel Institute who would prefer she be in chains, she’s fallen into a life under the thumb of the demon trafficker, and powerful demon, Allard.

But when Del disappears and the mysterious and cocky, Torrent, shows up with seemingly all the answers, Gem would be a fool to trust him. 

She’s never trusted anyone. Just herself and Del, and as she follows Del’s trail, she discovers Torrent and Allard aren’t the only ones with an interest in seeing her fail. The Institute hasn’t forgotten their experiments.  

Time is running out. The net is closing. Can Gem save her brother before their fates are sealed forever?

Chaos Rises is the first book in the dark and twisty Chaos urban fantasy series. This world is full of morally ambiguous people and demons. If you’re looking for urban fantasy with bite, you’ve found it in this stunning trilogy.

I fell in love with The Viehl Series and could not have been happier to find that the Chaos Rises series was written as a spinoff. This first installment has all of the markers for an amazing Urban Fantasy, great characters, descriptive world building, fast paced, and an addictive quality that makes it hard to put the book down.

5 Stars for Pippa DaCosta’s first book in the Chaos Rises series, #1 Chaos Rises. Pippa gifted me an ARC copy (Advanced Reader Copy) in exchange for an honest review. We’re back in Muse’s world—after the fall of the Netherworld Veil. But instead of being in Boston, we’re on the West Coast. When the veil fell, there were half bloods at the institute that escaped, and not even Adam knew happened to them. Well, spoiler alert: They survived and are living in LA. Gem and Del are twins. But not just any twins. Special twins. They’ve always been together, and as far as Gem is concerned, they always will be. She needs Del and he needs her. To be apart is unthinkable, and something that Gem hopes never happens. You see, she’s the only person that can help her brother keep things together. Literally. It’s a new day, but with new rules. New demons, (and who can’t get enough of them?!), new half bloods, and a whole new story. Gem, Del, Torrent and others. Torrent is a demon with a past that not even Gem can guess at. When he shows up to “offer” help, Gem isn’t sure if she should take it, but, like anyone who has survived The Fall, looking out for #1 is what you do. I LOVED this book! I finished it in 2 reading sessions. I couldn’t put it down! If you haven’t read the Veil series, I suggest you do, but I think you could pick up this book and be able to follow along pretty well. All of Pippa’s characters are amazing and complex. Just when you think you know how one of them will react, the exact opposite happens. In the daemon world, nothing, and no one, are what they seem. Come join us as Chaos Rises. Independent Reviewer Jackie Huntington
