The Child of Chaos

Winner of the 2021 Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal Award for YA Epic Fantasy

This is what fantasy fiction should be.” –New York Times bestselling author and fantasy legend Piers Anthony

Nothing can break the stranglehold the gods of Order have on the world

. . . except a roll of the dice.

An irresistible longing drags Galen to an ancient vault where, long ago, the gods of Order locked Chaos away. Chaos promises power to the one destined to liberate it, but Galen’s dreams warn of dark consequences.

He isn’t the only one racing to the vault, however. Horace, the bully who lives to torment Galen, is determined to unleash Chaos–and he might know how to do it.

Galen’s imagination always got him into trouble, but now it may be the only thing that can prevent Horace from unraveling the world.

This is no ordinary sword and sorcery story. There is a quality of imagination and detail here that impresses me. [Glen Dahlgren is a] novelist who I think will become more widely known as his skill is appreciated.” –Piers Anthony

The Child of Chaos is my debut young-adult fantasy novel, published August 16, 2020. The e-book is available at Amazon and signed softcovers and hardcovers are available from me directly at the Mysterium Merchandise Store. The audiobook is available from Audible.

Since childhood, I’ve devoured fantasy and science-fiction novels. When I joined Legend Entertainment, I was lucky enough to design games based on some of my favorite literary properties like the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and the Death Gate Cycle by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.

In those games, I told fresh stories in familiar worlds. Now, I’m introducing my own original fantasy tale in a world you won’t soon forget.

A preview chapter for the Child of Chaos is available now if you subscribe to my newsletter. Please visit this link to subscribe!
