Peek Inside Chaos

Maggie Raynard is a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when she accidentally puts her ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast. Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission to teach her how to use her new powers while also dealing with a watchdog council who keeps an eye out for any bad apples. Mac might turn out to be her salvation, only he's got secrets of his own...and they may just kill them both.

My name is Maggie Raynard. After sixteen years being just plain me, suddenly, when I lose my temper, my fingers become weapons of mass destruction. Turns out I’m a semi-god, descended from Aphrodite. Sounds cool in theory, but when I accidentally put my ex-boyfriend in a coma, things go downhill pretty fast.

Now some new guy named Mac Finnegan has made it his mission in life to continually piss me off. I’m stuck learning how to use my new powers while also dealing with regular high school problems, and with this annoying—and super-hot—guy all up in my business, I’m about to flip out.

But it gets worse. I just learned there’s this watchdog council of semis who keeps an eye out for any bad apples. They think I’m the baddest of the bunch and want to take me out before I do any more damage. My nemesis Mac might turn out to be my salvation, only he’s got secrets of his own…and they may just kill us both.



"An exciting start to a fresh, new paranormal series."- NYT bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout
 "...interesting concept, exciting story, lots of action later in the book, and a lot of humorous moments. Christine O'Neil has created a wonderful savvy heroine in Maggie, who is very opinionated, and thinks nothing of telling it like it is..." -Barb, The Reading Cafe
"I am a sucker for a snarky, witty, fiesty, kick butt heroine (or hero, I'm not picky) and that is exactly what I got in Maggie. Through in some mythology and you have my dream book." -My Guilty Obsession

I could not get enough of this book and its great characters. I absolutely love Maggie. I loved her style, her attitude, how she talks and of course her best friends Libby and Bink. Then there is Mac, I had a crush on Mac from the beginning, even though he is a total jerk in the beginning you can't ...more

By Larissa December 10, 2013

CHAOS is a fun new twist on Greek mythology. I adored Maggie's voice. It is extremely current and very teen. Maggie had me laughing out loud numerous times. Mac is a great bad boy--the kind you hate to love.

I didn't feel the romance between Maggie and Mac as much as I would have liked, and some asp ...more

Oh My Gods... O'Neil's voice blew me away. Chaos is original, smart, and full of spunky moment that had me snarfing coffee. I have a new girl-crush and her name is Maggie. ...more

I will start saying that when Maggie gets mad her powers are unleashing. Just like Jacob who becomes a wolf when he gets mad. I liked the chemistry Mac and Maggie had. The characters where all great. Her friends were supportive, understanding and the kind of friends I would like to have. There is a ...more

Este libro me gusto mucho mas de lo que creí :)

By Eleanor (The Book Hammock) September 27, 2013

Greek mythology seems to be the new vampire. And you know what? I’m fine with it. It’s interesting, it’s around us and it’s romantic (not necessarily “swoon” romantic.)Maggie Raynard lived a normal life with her parents and grandmother for 16 years. When she was a girl her father died. When she tur ...more

Right from the moment I first heard of Chaos I really couldn't wait to read it. I a huge fan of Entangled Teen books and have loved pretty much every single one I have read to date so that was enough for me to want to read this book. The bonus? when I read "Turns out I'm a sem ...more

By Tracey September 07, 2013

I don't know what I imagined dying would feel like, but it definitely wasn't this. No life flashing before my eyes. No sweet fond memories of my childhood. Not even regrets. Just...nothing.

The book description for Chaos pretty much sums up perfectly what the book is about, so I'm not going to go ...more

By Tween 2 Teen Book Reviews December 12, 2013

Chaos was amazing. It was spectacular. It was superb. Words cannot describe the awesome that is this book. If you look here, you can see that about a month ago, I was part of the cover reveal for this book. The language in this book is a bit over the top, and I don't recommend it to readers who are ...more

Review: 3 ½ out of 5 stars

Chaos is the first book in the Kardia Chronicles by Christine O’Neil and was a nice start to the series.

So let me start off by saying that I absolutely LOVED LOVED LOVED this book!!!! I can't wait for the next one to come out!!!

The book starts out with Maggie writing back to someone on her column. Now when she writes this column she signs it "she" so no one, with the exception of her 2 best friends, ...more

(View this review on My Library in the Making.)

I don't know what exactly I expected from Chaos, but it's certainly far from what I got. This take on mythology is fresh and unique, but to be honest, what kept me reading was the characters; they all had spunk for days and I could read about them even ...more

By Amy September 08, 2013

My feelings for this book are a lot like the feelings of the main character, a teenage girl, they go up and down. For the most part I liked most of this book, but there were times when I felt like it was maybe just a little too much. The book is about a girl named Maggie who a year before found out ...more

By Hilde September 03, 2013

First off I have to say I haven't read many YA books dealing with mythology, so although the theme seems to be a popular one these days, it was new to me - and I found it very interesting. I actually wouldn't have minded more info on the semis and their history, but at the same time I appreciate tha ...more

About the author

Christine O'Neil

Christine O'Neil was born and raised in Connecticut, where she spent most of her childhood outdoors catching salamanders, frogs and colds. When she wasn't terrorizing Mother Nature, she was curled up under the covers with her nose in a book. As an adult, she's stopped stalking amphibians, but still loves books. When she isn't reading, she likes to spend her time people-watching. In fact, she's probably watching you RIGHT NOW O_O She's also pretty obsessed with writing YA books, but if she had to pick another profession she would be a ninja...or a Professor of the Dark Arts. Christine also writes adult romance as Christine Bell.
